Guidelines speciﬁed in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition; 2001) should be followed, and submissions should be made electronically in Microsoft Word format. Each submission should consist of a title page and a main document ﬁle.
§ Contributors must provide their afﬁliation, complete postal and e-mail addresses and telephone numbers with their papers.
§ It is the author’s responsibility to disclose any potential conﬂict of interest regarding the manuscript.
§ Articles should be no more than 13,000 words. Shorter articles are encouraged, especially in the conceptual and descriptive categories. The main document ﬁle should be about 8 to 15 double-spaced pages in length including tables, ﬁgures, notes, and references.
§ Articles must have an abstract of 150–200 words.
§ All ﬁgures, i.e., diagrams, images, photographs and tables should be placed at the end of the ﬁ le and numbered in the order they appear in text. Table and ﬁgure locations should be indicated in text by callouts (e.g., ‘[insert Table 1 here]’) inserted after the respective paragraphs.
§ Present each table and ﬁgure in a separate ﬁle. Name the ﬁles by the number of the table or ﬁgure. Tables should be submitted in MS Excel or MS Word. Figures can be submitted as TIFF/JPEG ﬁles. Do not provide an excessive formatting for tables and ﬁgures. Each table or ﬁgure should have a heading, an explanatory caption if necessary and a source or reference in a separate Word ﬁle.
§ Notes should be numbered serially. They should be presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.
§ Limit the levels of heading within an article to two, or at most three. Avoid lengthy headings and do not number them.
§ American spellings throughout (‘labor’ not ‘labour’, ‘center’ not ‘centre’); universal ‘s’ in ‘-ize’ and ‘-ization’ words.
§ Double quotes throughout; single quotes used within double quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed.
§ Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.
§ Use ‘nineteenth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in ﬁgures. However, for exact measurements use only ﬁgures (3 km, 9 percent not %).
§ Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Avoid excessive use of italics for emphasis, but use it for book titles, journal names, as well as foreign words.
§ References: An alphabetical reference list of all books, articles, essays and theses referred to in the text should be provided. References for tables and ﬁgures should accompany the table or ﬁgure. If more than one publication by the same author is listed, the items should be given in chronological order. References should be embedded in text in the author-date method of citation. For example: ‘(Sarkar, 1987, p. 145), (Smith et al., 1992, 235–239).
