We do not want to be prescriptive about style as this depends on the author, the writing and the content. However we do need to be careful about the ease with which the papers can be read and accessed both online and in their printed version. For most papers which have a definite style we will only make a few alterations and suggestions. In other cases please set the typeface at 11pt (Times New Roman) or 10pt (Georgia), with the type justified and line spacing exactly 13pt [not ‘single’]. Other styles regularly needed and set up or modified as appropriate would be the headings and footnotes/endnotes. Headings are either at 15pt (Times New Roman) or 14pt (Georgia) ranged left, line spacing exactly 17pts. This is used as the style for the opening title and should be followed by 4 lines of ‘normal’ space. Major subheadings in the text should be 13pt (Times New Roman) or 12pt (Georgia) ranged left, line spacing exactly 15pts; preceded by 3 lines of ‘normal’ space and followed by 2 lines of ‘normal’ space.
Display Quote is 9pt (Times New Roman) or 8pt (Georgia) justified, line spacing exactly 11pts, indented 0.8cm at the left. This style should be used for any quotations more than three lines long. It should normally be preceded and followed by 11pts space [i.e., a blank line in ‘Display quote’ style].
A new paragraph in a Display Quote should be indented as here. Do not enclose a displayed quote in quotation marks, but if there is a ‘quote within a quote’ it should be enclosed by single quotation marks as here.
Minor subheadings in the text should be set in the ‘Normal’ style, 11pt (Times New Roman) or 10pt (Georgia), italicized, and preceded by 2 lines of ‘normal’ space and followed by 1 line of ‘normal’ space.
These are the principal styles you will need; you may create others if necessary, e.g. for your bibliography and index.
If you prefer, you can download a Word template here, which has all the styles set-up with the correct spacing.
Footnote text is 9pt (Times New Roman/Georgia), justified, with line spacing exactly 11pts and a hanging indent of 0.8cms. It also should have a tab set at 0.8cm and you should hit the tab key once between the note number and the start of the note, so that it all ranges nicely as here. We ask that you remove the footnote separator, footnote continuation separator and footnote continuation notice.
