Submission Format


Please very carefully check all references - the most frequent reason for delays in publication of papers is revision to correct incorrect references, or mismatched citations versus the reference list.

References in the text should be with the author's last name and year of publication in parentheses (Peters, 1996). Two authors should be included in the text as follows: (Peters & Smith, 1996) and three or more authors as (Peters et al., 1996). A list of references should follow the article with references listed alphabetically as follows: surname, initials, date, article or chapter title (if appropriate), book or journal title, volume and issue (for journals), page numbers (for journals or book chapters), publisher, place of publication and edition (for books).

These should be called Figures, numbered consecutively (Figure 1, Figure 2 etc.), with a brief title. Indicate where in the text you wish the figure to appear (e.g. Fig 1 about here). Submitting each figure independently as a .jpg file will ensure the final integrity of the figure. 


Tables should be numbered consecutively and independently of Figures. Indicate in the text where you wish them to appear. Give them a brief title. Please ensure they are clear and legible.
