Author Guidelines

As the articles will only be published online, there is no limit to the length of the article or the number of illustrations within reason. It is the responsibility of the author to secure permissions for image use and pay any reproduction fees. A brief abstract (200 words) and author bio (around 100 words) must accompany the text. Acceptance or rejection of submissions is at the discretion of the Editorial Staff. Please do not send original materials, as submissions will not be returned. All materials should be submitted electronically through the Open Journal system.

Formatting requirements for the manuscript:
All articles must be submitted in English, and spelling should follow United Kingdom convention. Use endnotes rather than footnotes. All submissions must be submitted electronically. Text should be saved as Microsoft Word or RTF format. Please supply four to five keywords to accompany your text.

Punctuation should follow the MHRA Style Guide, available for purchase at www.style.mhra.org.uk, but also downloadable in an abridged form without charge from www.mhra.org.uk/Publications/Books/StyleGuide/download.shtml.

Formatting requirements for Illustrations:
Images should be sent as TIFF files with a resolution of at least 300dpi. Figures should be numbered clearly in the text, after the paragraph in which they are referenced. Image captions and credits must be included with submissions.
