EDUIMHE › Guidelines for authors - Supporting Success and Productivity: Practical Tools for Making Your University a Great Place to Work
The following guidelines are designed to assist authors in preparing their contributions for the conference Supporting Success and Productivity: Practical Tools for Making Your University a Great Place to Work.
Length: should not exceed 15 pages (single spaced) including figures and references (about 5000 words).
The first page: before the text itself should appear centred on the page in this order the title of the article and the name(s), affiliation(s) and country/countries of the author(s).
Abstract: the main text should be preceded by an abstract of 100 to 200 words summarising the article.
Quotations: long quotations should be single spaced and each line should be indented 7 spaces.
Footnotes: authors should avoid using footnotes and incorporate any explanatory material in the text itself. If notes cannot be avoided, they should be endnotes, at the end of the article.
Tables and illustrations: tabular material should bear a centred heading “Table”. Presentations of non-tabular material should bear a centred heading “Figure”. The source should always be cited.
Addresses of author(s), including email, should be typed at the end of the article.
References in the text: Vidal and Mora (2003) or Bleiklie et al. (2000) in the case of three or more authors. However, the names of all authors should appear in the bibliography at the end of the article.
Bibliography at the end of the article: references should be listed in alphabetical order under the heading “References”. Examples of the reference style used in the Journal are:
