  • Document setup: The full physical page size including all margins will be 166mm x 240mm. To facilitate the process a paper template with all the settings preset has been prepared. The template can be downloaded from here.
  • The sets of margins: Header: 17mm; Top of main body: 25mm; Bottom: 29mm; Left: 25mm; Footer: 16mm
  • Use Times New Roman: 10 pts fonts for the main text and all additional parts except endnotes and index (where you should use 8pts), and paper headings (see below). All text should be single-spaced. The paper length should be between 3500-4000 words.
  • To ensure that there are no extra spaces in the document, use your software's find and replace command to substitute all double spaces for single spaces. Repeat this procedure until no double spaces are found.
  • The referencing system you use should comply with the Harvard reference system style. (For all further text related issues, consult the Harvard Manual of Style).
  • It is recommended that you use JPEG files for producing grayscale images or photographs with resolution 150 dpi. All images including photographs must be included in the main Word or other files submitted.
  • Take into account the size of the page when including images (115mm x 180mm). Your image will have to be resized if it is too large or too small, and this can prove problematic in certain cases.
  • Call your pictures or illustrations Figure 1. The number refers to the illustration or image number within the manuscript.
