  • Submission Guidelines for Studies in Microeconomics

    Studies in Microeconomics is hosted on SAGE Track System, a web-based online submission and peer review system. Please read the Manuscript Submission guidelines below, and then visit https://peerreview.sagepub.com/MIC to login/create an account and submit your article online.

    The corresponding author will receive a link for the copyright form once a contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered as final once the author submits the copyright form.

    Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to the journal administrator at https://peerreview.sagepub.com/MIC.

    Articles accepted for publication in this journal should be written in MS Word, Times New Roman font, and should be submitted online. 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. Author/s’ name should not appear on any other page.

    All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words and 4–6 keywords.

    Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘program’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’).

    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’).

    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.

    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.

    Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, 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. Sources for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.

    A consolidated listing of all books, articles, 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. Guidelines specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition) must be followed.

    Inverted names: 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.

    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.
