Submitted papers must be original and not under consideration by any other journal.

They should be in English and should preferably not exceed 4000 words with an English abstract in less than 200 words and up to five keywords.

Papers should be formatted in Adobe Indesign following the template provided. Papers should be in a single-column format with double spacing and wide margins. Authors should not attempt to reproduce the journal’s page layout. Spelling follows The concise Oxford dictionary. All measurements should be expressed in the metric system. Authors alone are responsible for securing any necessary copyright permissions to reproduce illustrations, extensive quotations etc.


These should be placed at the end of the paper. Authors must use the Harvard system of giving references, in which authors’ names (no initials)and dates are given in the body of the text B for example (Biddle and Hill, 1971) B and the references are listed alphabetically at the end of the paper, under the heading ‘References’, in the following form:

In the case of multi-authored publications, all authors should be named in the list of references. Only cited references should be listed.

Illustrations and tables

Line drawings, which should be of professional quality, and photographs should be the size of the intended reproduction. When designing illustrations, account should be taken of the journal page size. Illustrations should be numbered consecutively, referred to directly in the text and submitted as JPEG or TIFF files (using LZW compression if available). Pictorial illustrations and line diagrams should be at a resolution of no less than 300 dpi. All illustrations must have captions. A typed list of these should be included after the references, in the following style:
Figure 1. Distribution of house types.

Particular care should be taken with the layout of tables, each of which should be on a separate page. These should be set out using no vertical rules and as few horizontal rules as possible, and with wide margins on all sides.
Title page

A separate title page should include the title of the paper, and the name(s), main professional or academic affiliation(s) and full address(es), including e-mail address(es), of the author(s).

Only the first letter and proper names are capitalised.
Headings are placed against the left-hand margin, primary sub-headings being in bold and secondary sub-headings being in italic.

Numerals should be used for all units of measurement, but in the case of quantities of objects, persons etc., the figures from one to twenty should be spelt out (for example: ten people, ten cases; but 10 days, 10 km, 24 inhabitants, 6400 m).

Proofs will normally be sent to authors. Only printer’s errors should be corrected at this stage:major changes are not acceptable
