Author Guidelines

To guarantee a smooth publication process, it is important that you ensure the text and figures of your manusript are complete and final when submitted to us. We will then handle all the typeseting and production processes from that point onwards. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their manusripts conform to the style of the publisher. Sub-headings should be in capitals (or Roman numerals); sub-sub headings in lower case italic. Quotations should be in single quotation marks, doubled with single. Long quotations of five or more lines should be indented without quotes. Capitals should be used sparingly, principally for proper titles and where they may be necessary to avoid ambiguity.

Simple references to be inserted in round brackets at the appropriate place in the text, stating author's surname, publication date of work referred to and, where appropriate, relevant pages. For example: (Adams, 2006: 34).

Comments to appear as notes, indicated consecutively throughout the article by raised numerals corresponding to the list of notes placed at the end of the manuscript. Reference list to appear after the list of notes, containing all the works referred to, listed alphabetically by author's surname (or name of sponsoring body), stating author's surname, forename and/or initials, date of publication, title of publication, edition, place of publication and publisher, and pages if relevant. For example:

Tan, Q. (2011) County Gorernment Reform in Urbanizing China, Lex localis - Journal of Local Self-Government, 9(4), pp. 353-371, doi: 10.4335/9.4.353-371(2011).
