Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be in the English language and should be printed in 12-point font, double-spaced. Do not justify the right margin. The total manuscripts should be fewer than thirty pages (8 000 words) long, including all components: text, references, illustrations and tables.

Title page.
Title of the paper.

Abstract. Each article must have an abstract, in English only, summarizing the main findings and the scientific methods used to obtain them. The abstract should be between about 250 words and should be accompanied by not more than five key words which define the subject-matter.

Footnotes. Because footnotes are expensive and especially where lengthy are awkward to typeset, they should be brief and used sparingly. Footnotes should be typed double spaced at the bottom of the page.

Headings. A maximum of two levels may be used.

References. References should be cited in the text as follows: Johnston (1995); (Johnston 1995); (Johnston et al. 1995:26-27); (Johnston 1992a, 1992b); (Johnston 1995; Smith 1991; Murphy 1985). The full references should be typed, double-spaced, on separate sheets at the end of the paper. They must include the names and initials of all the authors, the year of publication in parentheses, the full title of the article (or book), the standard abbreviated name of the journal, the volume number and pages, and for books, the publisher’s name and city of publication: HÄGERSTRAND. (1967): Innovation Diffusion as a Spatial Process. Chicago, University of Chicago Press.

Tables. All tables should be numbered consecutively (Table 1, Table 2...) in order in which they are referred to in the text. Tables are inserted into the text.

Figures and graphs. All figures and graphs should be saved as separate files in *tif, *jpg, *pct or *eps format. The approximate position of the figures in the text should be indicated in the typescript. Figures must be drawn to a standard suitable for direct reproduction (300 DPI). Captions should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet and should not be placed with the artwork. All figures should be numbered consecutively (Figure 1, Figure 2...) in order in which they are referred to in the text.

Submission of Manuscripts. Manuscripts should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Submit all figures as separate files and resolution 600DPI in zip format. No artwork (graphs, maps etc.) should be included in the text file.
