GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Papers are accepted in Microsoft Word DOC and RTF formats only. All authors should use the sample article as a basis for compiling their articles. The sample illustrates the general format for articles, and - more importantly - introcudes the Word styles to be used when encoding the structure of articles. All articles should be written in English (en-UK, if possible).

PAPER GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS

  • Papers should be c. 4000 words with a 250 word abstract.
  • The total lenght of your paper should not exceed seven (7) pages when printed (this may limit, e.g., the size of the images in the article).
  • Paper size should be set to portrait A4 (width 210 mm, height 297 mm).
  • Use the following margins: top=254 mm, bottom=254 mm, left=286 mm, and right=286 mm.
  • Use the styles introduced in the samplearticle.rtf to encode the topic, headings and other major text elements. Avoid using inline character formatting instructions when possible (see style descriptions below to know where inline formatting is needed).
  • Use 3-6 keywords. Try using keywords not already obvious by the context or the preferred theme.
  • Do not change the styles included in the template document.
  • Do not introduce new Word styles to do the same job with the existing styles included in the document.
  • Do not insert additional empty lines between paragraps, images, etc. to modify the layout of your article.
  • Insert (place) images in the article instead of linking them.
  • Do not include page numbers.
  • Do not include any text in headers or footers. Do not use footnotes.
  • Do not use any automatic numbering, especially not for headings, figures nor tables.
  • Do not use bookmarks.
  • Do not embed functional hyperlinks in you article (refer to them by giving the URLs in text form instead).

TIPS

  • Try using only two levels of headings, if possible.
  • If you have written sections of your article using documents obeying other Word styles and wish to copy the text in your new PEG article (written using the samplearticle.rtf), use the Word method Edit/ Paste_Special/ Unformatted_text instead of simple Paste to insert text and apply correct style if needed. This effectively forbids making unwanted style definitions (essentially combining definitions from different Word templates) by accident.
  • Try printing out your document to see that it is correct. Remember to check the images.
  • Use Word method Tools/ Word_Count to calculate the number of words of the selected portion of the article.
  • If you need to insert line breaks without ending a paragraph, use Shift+Enter instead of Enter.

Please follow these instructions as carefully as possible.
