Articles

Manuscripts should be submitted in Microsoft Word .docx or .doc format, written in Times New Roman, font size 12, line spacing 1.5. Normally, articles (including abstract, footnotes and references) should be no longer than 12,000 words.

The first page must contain: (1) title of the article; (2) author details – all authors’ full names, titles, affiliations, postal addresses, emails and ORCID identifier; (3) JEL classification code; (4) short abstract (not longer than 150 words); (5) up to six keywords; (6) funding details and disclosure statement.

The references should be cited according to the Harvard Style of Referencing.

In editing the manuscript, you are advised to consult our publication template.

 

Submission process

You are required to submit both the full version of your manuscript (i.e. with author details) and the anonymised one.

A note regarding anonymised manuscripts: Whenever you refer to your own work, please make sure that this is worded in such a way that you as the author(s) cannot be identified, e.g. "previous research has demonstrated" not "our previous research has demonstrated". Also, you should replace your name(s) from the text with "(Authors, year)" or "Authors (year)". The same should be done in the list of references, without mentioning the article title, the journal where it was published or any other details (e.g. Author (year). leave empty).

Figures, tables and images should be included in the main document. However, please also attach them as separate files so as to speed up the copyediting procedure.

Any Acknowledgments and other important notes you wish to be included in the article should be uploaded as separate files.

Book reviews

Book reviews should be submitted in Microsoft Word .docx or .doc format, written in Times New Roman, font size 12, line spacing 1.5. 

The first page must contain: (1) title; (2) author details – all authors’ full names, titles, affiliations, postal addresses, emails and ORCID identifier.

A typical Book review should be no longer than 1,500 words.

 

Submission process

When submitting your book review, please choose the option 'Manuscript - with author details'.
