Articles should have 4,000 to 8,000 words, including references. Articles longer than that will be rejected.
Titles and subtitles
Both titles and subtitles should be short. Throughout the manuscript, subtitles are not to be numbered.
The research questions, key argument, methodology and main findings should be outlined in an abstract of 100-150 words. The abstract paragraph should be different than the opening paragraph of the article. You may find some useful advice on abstract construction here [http://authorservices.wiley.com/bauthor/seo.asp].
Four to six keywords should follow the abstract paragraph.
Title, authors, institutional affiliation and acknowledgements page
Each manuscript should have a separate page containing: (1) the title of the article, (2) author(s), (3) institutional affiliation of the authors, (4) e-mail address(es) and (4) acknowledgements (if relevant). Important: When more than one author, please indicate in a footnote on the title page the corresponding author should be indicated.
Lengthy literature reviews should be avoided. Authors should engage only authors and references relevant for their topic. Please avoid excessive jargon and use readable style. If acronyms are used, they should be defined when they first appear in the text. Please use plurals instead of he/she. For emphasis, use italics, but please keep them at a minimum. Please do not use bold or underline. Use italics for title of books, newspapers, novels when they appear in the main text. Spell out numerals under 10. Use “per cent” in the text; “%” sign should be used in the tables.
References should follow this model: (Author(s), year: page number). Quotes longer than 40 words should be indented without the use of inverted commas. For quotations within the text please make sure to use single inverted commas on all occasions, except for a quotation within a quotation which should be placed within double inverted commas.
Should be kept at a minimum and should be placed before the references.
Only works cited in the text should be listed in the bibliography.
