INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS
Formal conditions of acceptance
Papers will only be published in English. Each typescript must be accompanied by a statement that
it has not been submitted for publication elsewhere in English. Previous presentation at a conference, or
publication in another language, should be disclosed. All papers are refereed, and the Editor-in-Chief
reserves the right to refuse any typescript, whether on invitation or otherwise, and to make suggestions
and/or modifications before publication. Typescripts which have been accepted become the property of the publisher.
It is a condition of acceptance that copyright shall be vested in the publisher. The publisher shall furnish authors of
accepted papers with proofs for the correction of printing errors. The proofs shall be returned within 14 calendar
days of submittal. The publishers shall not be held responsible for errors which are the result of authors' oversights.
The original typescript should be submitted only on electronic copy by e-mail at
"email@example.com" in the following order: title, author(s),
address(es), abstract, keywords, biographical notes (100 words maximum for each author), introduction, text, acknowledgements,
references and notes, tables, figure captions, figures. The preferred word processing program is Microsoft's Word or Word for Windows.
Please do not process the electronic file in any way. Figures may be included in the electronic text file or as separate files.
Inderscience journals are international journals, and authors should be aware of the worldwide readership.
Authors are encouraged to approach their chosen topic with an international perspective.
It should not be assumed that the reader is familiar with specific national institutions or corporations.
Countries and groupings of countries should be referred to by their full title (for example, 'China', 'Europe' and 'America'
are all ambiguous. Special attention should be paid to identifying units of currency by nationality.
Acronyms should be translated in full into English. (See also 'Translated works' below.)
Title, abstract, keywords, addresses, biographical notes
Please assist us by following these guidelines:
- Title : as short as possible
- Abstract: approximately 100 words, maximum 150
- Keywords : approximately 10 words or phrases
- Address : position, department, name of institution, full postal address
- Biographical notes : approximately 100 words per author, maximum 150.
References and notes
Inderscience journal uses a numbering system in which references and notes are placed in the same sequence. In the text, a reference is indicated by a number in square brackets, e.g. . This system avoids footnotes. Full references and short notes should then be placed in number order at the end of the text. References should be made only to works that are published, accepted for publication (not merely 'submitted'), or available through libraries or institutions. Any other source should be qualified by a note regarding availability. Full reference should include all authors' names and initials, date of publication, title of paper, title of publication (underlined), volume and issue number (of a journal), publisher and form (books. conference proceedings), page numbers. Notes should make a specific point, and be short and succinct.
All illustrations, whether diagrams or photographs, are referred to as Figures and are numbered sequentially. Please place them at the end of the paper, rather than interspersed in text. Originals of line diagrams will be photographically reduced and used directly, so please prepare them to the highest possible standards. Bear in mind that lettering may be reduced in size by a factor of 2 or 3, and that fine lines may disappear.
