Author Guidelines

Length: Articles should be between 6, 000 and 8, 000 words in length, including footnotes. Format: All contributions, whether articles or reviews, should be submitted to the emails indicated above. They should be typed, in double or 1.5 spacing, on ordinary weight quarto-sized (A-4) paper, on one side only. Margins should be at least 1.5cm on the left and on the right, at the top and bottom. Triple spaces should be left between paragraphs. Articles and reviews should be typed and submitted in Microsoft Word (not PDF) and font 12, Times New Roman. Spelling: Spelling should follow British English practice, as in the Concise Oxford Dictionary (available online). Quotations: Short quotations should be indicated by single quotation marks, with double quotation marks for quotation within the main one. Quotations of more than twenty-five words or so should be typed in single-spacing and indented from the left-hand margin; they should be separated from the main body of the text by triple-spacing. Italics: Italics should be used only for names of publications and for words in languages other than English. Use foreign words only when necessary, and then provide a translation in parentheses. Numbers: Dates should be shown thus: 12 February 1968, 1877-8, c.1700, 55. CE or BCE. (use A.D. only when there is a 1ikelihood of confusion). Use figures for units of measurement (51kg, 10grms., 1 metre, 6 cm) for any number which includes a decimal point; and for any number above one involving a fraction (thus two-thirds, but 2/3 or 3.66). Spell out numbers up to one hundred, and spell out two hundred, one thousand, a million, etc. Use figures for all intervening numbers which would require more than two words if spelt out. Put hyphens in twenty-one, etc. Put commas in numbers over 999 (1,089; 156,723) except in dates. When serializing figures (i.e. in page references) type all numbers up to 21 in full (thus: 13-17, and also 30-31, 40 – 41, etc. Otherwise, use the smallest number of figures consistent with clarity (thus: 52 – 4; 205 – 9). Footnotes and Bibliography: All footnotes should be numbered and typed, in single – spacing, separately from the text. Citations of references should be made only in footnotes and not in the text (no in-text references). The full form for footnote citation should be as follows: W. Watson, Tribal Cohesion in a Money Economy, (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1958), 56. I.G. Cunnison, ‘History and Genealogies in a Conquest State’, American Anthropologist, 59, 1 (1957), 20-21. First reference should be in full: al1 subsequent references should be given in abbreviated form, thus: Watson, Tribal Cohesion, 209; Cunnison, ‘History and Genealogies’, 27. Op. cit. and loc. cit. should not be used. Bibliography should be arranged alphabetically in the order of the surnames of the authors as follows: Cunnison, I.G. ‘History and Genealogies in a Conquest State’, American Anthropologist, 59, 1, 20-31. Watson, W. Tribal Cohesion in a Money Economy, Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1958.
