All manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Critical Studies in Business & Society should be original and not be under consideration for another publication.

Please Note: Articles not conforming to the Journal's style guide may not be considered. It is also the case that, although the Journal Editorial/Management Committee will often work to edit manuscripts, we are not always able to publish articles that require extensive editing in order to conform to the standards of the journal.

1. Word length

Articles and bibliographic essays should be between 5000 - 8000 words in length.

2. Submission Procedures

Images should be sent as separate files as either GIF or JPG. Do not embed images into word documents. Try to keep file sizes to a minimum to speed download.

3. All submissions should be accompanied by the following information on a separate page at the beginning of the text:

a) Name(s), Institutional affiliation(s), email(s) and surface mail addresses and fax no.(s) of the person(s) submitting;

b) Title of the text and the issue for which it is submitted.

c). An abstract of about 150 words.
All original submissions should be accompanied by a short paragraph (40-60 words) about the contributor(s), giving the kind of information that readers may wish to know, such as name, institutional affiliation, recent publications or/and research interests.

d) A short biography.
All original submissions should be accompanied by a short paragraph (60-80 words) about the contributor(s), giving the kind of information that readers may wish to know, such as name, institutional affiliation, recent publications and research interests. This paragraph should appear immediately after the last paragraph of the article.

4. Quotations

Use single quotation marks round quotes less than two lines long, and run these in the text. Use in-text referencing, with reference details after the 'quote' (May, 2002: 34).

Indent quotes three or more lines long by 1 cm, without quotation marks, in a separate paragraph. Do not indent right margin.

Do not italicize quotes, except for emphasis. Acknowledge added emphasis immediately after the citation as "my emphasis": e.g. (Adorno, 1989: 186; my emphasis).

Quotes within quotes should be distinguished by double quotation marks e.g. Gregory (211) speaks of a 1982 article which 'emphasizes a NGO`s efforts to procure "influence events in the region and serve as a catalyst in the peace process, ".' (Single quotation marks surround the quote from Gregory at p.211; double quotation marks surround the words quoted by Gregory at this point)

5. Reference Style Guide

If you have no references, please list recommended further reading at the end of your article.

All book, journal titles in italics. List alphabetically by author.

For more than one author, use "and" not "&".

For the first reference of an author in your article, include their first name. Thereafter refer to surname only.
