    2. Business Perspectives and Research adheres to a rigorous double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties.
       
    3.  Contributors must provide their affiliations and complete postal and e-mail addresses with their articles.
       
    4. Articles should not exceed 6,000 words. All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words. Notes should be numbered serially and presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.
       
    5. Use American spellings rather than British throughout (“labor” not “labour,” “center” not “centre”; universal “-ize” and “-zation” of words). Use serial comma.
       
    6. Use double quotes throughout. Single quotes only to be used within double quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.
       
    7.  Use ‘twentieth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements, use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent, not %). Use thousands and millions, not lakhs and crores.
       
    8. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimized, but used consistently. Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). Present each table and figure on a separate sheet of paper, gathering them together at the end of the article. All Figures and Tables should be cited in the text. Source for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
       
    9. All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi/1500 pixels and their format should be TIFF or JPEG. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images.

If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.

      Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work

      Chronological listing: If you have more than one work by the same author(s), list them in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.

      Sentence case: In references, follow sentence case for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc.

      Title case: In references, Journal titles are put in title case.
