  • Submission Guidelines for Studies in Microeconomics

    1. Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to: mic@sagepub.in
    2. Papers accepted for publication in this journal should be either be in LATEX template (accompanied with PDF) or in MS Word, Times New Roman font, and should be electronically submitted. It is mandatory for the corresponding author to submit the source file of an accepted paper within a week from the date the paper is accepted for publication.
    3. Manuscripts should normally not exceed 6,000 words and should be sub­mitted with the cover page bearing only the title of the article, author/s’ names, designations, official addresses, phone/fax numbers, and email addresses. If there are two or more authors, then the corresponding author’s name and address details must be specified clearly. Author/s’ name should not appear on any other page. 
    4. Authors will be provided with a copyright form once the contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered as final only after the filled-in and signed copyright form is received. 
    5. All papers must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words and 4–6 keywords.
    6. Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘program’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’). 
    7. Use ‘z’ spellings instead of ‘s’ spellings. This means that words ending with ‘-ise’, ‘isation’, etc., will be spelt with ‘z’ (e.g., ‘recognize’, ‘organ­ize’, ‘civilize’). 
    8. Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes only to be used within single 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. Notes should be numbered serially and presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference. 
    9. 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. 
    10. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimized, but used consistently. 
    11. 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, and provided in editable format. Caption and source details for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
    12. All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi and 1500 pixels and their format should be TIFF or JPEG. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images. Even for photographs/images available in the public domain, it should be clearly ascertained whether or not their reproduction requires permission for purposes of publishing (which is a profit-making endeavor).
    13. A consolidated listing of all books, papers essays, theses and documents referred to (including any referred to in the tables, graphs and maps) should be provided at the end of the article.
    • Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work. In each reference, authors’ names are inverted (last name first) for all authors (first, second or subsequent ones); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work unless the work has more than six authors. If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.
    • Chronological listing: If more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, they should be listed in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.
    • Sentence case: In references, sentence case (only the first word and any proper noun are capitalized – e.g., ‘The software industry in India’) is to be followed for the titles of papers, books, papers, etc.
    • Title case: In references, Journal titles are put in title case (first letter of all words except articles and conjunctions are capitalized – e.g., Journal of Business Ethics).
    • Italicize: Book and Journal titles are to be italicized.
    • Citations and References should adhere to the guidelines below (based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition). Some examples are given below:
