All articles will be anonymously refereed so personal details (name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and contact details) should be separated from the article and abstract. Articles should be written in MLA format and no more than 8,000 words including endnotes. Abstracts should be 150-200 words and summarise the contents of the paper with 3 and 6 key words.


It is the responsibility of the author to ensure their submission without any problem of copyright and ethics (including plagiarism). Strong policies in these areas protect the rights of authors, editors, reviewers and publishers alike ensuring the reputation of the publication and copyright holders.
