AUTHOR GUIDELINES FOR PAPER
1. Formatting your paper
All printed material, including text,
illustrations, and charts, must be kept within
the parameters of the 8 15/16-inch (53.75 picas)
column length and 5 15/16-inch (36 picas) column
width. Text must not extend outside of the
column parameters. Margins are 1 5/16 of an inch
on the sides (8 picas), 7/8 of an inch on the
top (5.5 picas), and 1 3/16 of an inch on the
bottom (7 picas).
2. Main title
The main title (on the first page) should begin
1 3/16 inches (7 picas) from the top edge of the
page, centered, and in Times New Roman 14-point,
boldface type. Capitalize the first letter of
nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs;
do not capitalize articles, coordinate
conjunctions, or prepositions (unless the title
begins with such a word). Please initially
capitalize only the first word in other titles,
including section titles and first, second, and
third-order headings (for example, â€œTitles and
headingsâ€ â€” as in these guidelines). Leave two
blank lines after the title.
3. Author name(s) and affiliation(s)
Author names and affiliations are to be centered
beneath the title and printed in Times New Roman
12-point, non-boldface type. Multiple authors
may be shown in a two or three-column format,
with their affiliations below their respective
names. Affiliations are centered below each
author name, italicized, not bold. Include
e-mail addresses if possible. Avoid using
academic degrees and society affiliations.
Follow the author information by two blank lines
before main text.
4. Second and following pages
The second and following pages should begin 1.0
inch (2.54 cm) from the top edge. On all pages,
the bottom margin should be 1 3/16 inches (2.86
cm) from the bottom edge of the page for 8.5 x
11-inch paper; for A4 paper, approximately 1 5/8
inches (4.13 cm) from the bottom edge of the
5. Type-style and fonts
Wherever Times is specified, Times Roman, or New
Times Roman may be usedâ€”as well as
Helveticaâ€”throughout the text, including figures
and tables. If neither is available on your word
processor, use the font closest in appearance to
Times. All fonts must be Type 1 or 3 Postscript
fonts from the Latin 1 Fontset. Do not use
TrueType, bitmapped, or Ryumin fonts.
Basic PDF distiller settings must be changed to:
â€˘ Acrobat 4.0 compatibility,
â€˘ All graphics at least 300 dpi resolution,
â€˘ All fonts are embedded and subset,
â€˘ Postscript settings do not override distiller
Authors must check their final pdf files before
submission to verify that all fonts have been
properly embedded and subset. Some font
manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed.
These fonts must be avoided.
6. Main text
Type your main text in 11-point Times New Roman,
single-spaced with 13-point interline spacing.
Do not double space text. All paragraphs should
be indented 1 pica (approximately 1/6- or
0.17-inch or 0.422 cm). Be sure your text is
fully justifiedâ€”that is, flush left and flush
right. Please do not place any additional blank
lines between paragraphs.
Figure and table captions should be 11-point
Helvetica boldface (or a similar sans-serif
font). Callouts should be 10-point Helvetica,
non-boldface. Capitalize only the first word of
each figure caption and table title. Figures and
tables must be numbered separately. For example:
â€œFigure 1. Database contextsâ€, â€œTable 1. Input
dataâ€. Place figure captions below the figures;
center table titles above the tables.
7. First-order headings
For example, â€œ1. Introductionâ€, should be Times
New Roman 12-point boldface, initially
capitalized, flush left, with one blank line
before. Use a period (â€œ.â€) after the Arabic
heading number, not a colon.
7.1. Second-order headings
As in this heading, they should be Times New
Roman 11-point boldface, initially capitalized,
flush left, with one blank line before, and one
7.1.1. Third-order headings: Third-order
headings, as in this paragraph, are discouraged.
However, if you must use them, use 11-point
Times New Roman, boldface, initially
capitalized, flush left, preceded by one blank
line, followed by a colon and your text on the
8. Page numbering
Do not paginate.
Avoid using footnotes; incorporate footnotes as
parenthetical material. Only when necessary,
place footnotes at the bottom of the column on
the page on which they are referenced. Use Times
New Roman 9-point type, single-spaced with
10-point interlining spacing.
List and number all bibliographical references
in 11-point Times New Roman, single-spaced with
10-point interlining spacing, at the end of your
paper. The style of the manuscript should follow
The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. (Chicago:
University of Chicago Press, 1993).
References should be cited in the text using the
'name and date' style, e.g. "Summers (1993) said
that ..." or "research shows that ... (Summers,
