If excerpts from other copyrighted works are included, the author(s) must obtain written permission from the copyright owners and credit the source(s) in the article. Elsevier has preprinted forms for use by authors in these cases; please consult: http://www.elsevier.com/permissions.

Authors’ rightsAs an author you retain certain rights; for details you are referred to: http://www.elsevier.com/authorsrights.

Electronic format requirements for accepted articlesWe accept most word processing formats, but Word, WordPerfect or LaTeX is preferred. An electronic version of the text should be submitted together with the fi nal hardcopy of the manuscript. It is important that the fi le be saved in the native format of the wordprocessor used.The electronic text should be prepared in a way very similar to that of conventional manuscripts (see also the Guide to Publishing with Elsevier: http://www.elsevier.com/guidepublication).

Preparation of textPlease write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these). Manuscripts must be typewritten, double-spaced with wide margins. Consult a recent issue of the journal for style if possible (free sample copy available at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/08830355). Authors are requested to provide the contact details of 2–3 possible reviewers for their paper when they submit.

Use of LanguageNational colloquialisms and idiomatic use of language should be avoided as should language that might imply bias against persons on the basis of gender, racial or ethnic group membership, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

LengthIndividual papers should be between 5-8,000 words. Special issues should aim for a total length of 45,000 words.

Language (Usage and Editing services)Please write your text in good English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of these).

Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g. double names), indicate this clearly.Corresponding author.

If quoting from a reference, page numbers should also be indicated; e.g. ‘‘(Pullman 1996, p. 21)’’. For 2 to 6 authors, all authors are to be listed at fi rst citation, with ‘‘&’’ separating the last two authors. For more than six authors, use the fi rst six authors followed by et al. In subsequent citations for three or more authors use the fi rst author et al. in the text. Groups of references should be listed fi rst alphabetically, then chronologically.List: References should be arranged fi rst alphabetically and then sorted chronologically if necessary. Multiple references from the same author(s) in the same year must be identifi ed by ‘‘a’’,‘‘b’’,‘‘c’’, etc., placed after the year of publication. Check that the spelling of authors’names and dates is exactly the same in the text as in the reference list.
