ARTICLE SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
No responsibility can be taken for loss or damage to manuscripts; contributors
Book reviews are invited by the book review editor with an indication of due date. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically where possible in MS Word or rich text format (.rtf).
Reviews are expected to be double spaced and the quality of the print should be clean and easy to read, particularly with punctuation and diacritical marks. Usually Reviews are with 500 to 700 words (maximum) in length. Because we only have limited space available for book reviews, please do not exceed the maximum number of words.
Footnotes must not be used. If other works are mentioned, please provide the full citation—i.e., the authors/editors, the title of the publication, and (in parentheses) the publisher, the place of publication, and year of publication. If direct quotations are made, please ensure that these are accurate and that the page reference is supplied (in parentheses) after the quote.
At the head of the review, the following bibliographic information should appear:Book Title
At the foot of the review, please indicate:
In general, use as little formatting as possible. Please type everything flush left.
