Submission Guidelines for The Indian Economic Journal

· Contributions to the journal should be original papers and not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time.
· Journal papers should be submitted electronically to the Editor at theindianeconomicjournal@gmail.com. Articles should not be more than 9,000 words, including figures, tables, and annexures.
· Authors will be sent with a copyright form once the contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered final only after the filled-in and signed copyright form is received. In case there are two or more authors, only the corresponding author needs to sign the copyright form.
· Articles should be written in MS Word, 1.5 line-spacing, and should be submitted in soft copy. Contributors must provide their affiliations and complete postal and e-mail addresses with their articles on a separate page (cover sheet of the paper). First page of the paper must start with the title of the paper followed by abstract, key words (5 or 6 words) and JEL classification.
· In case there are two or more authors, the corresponding author’s name and contact details should be specified clearly on the title page.

Basic formatting of the submission

· Each journal article must be accompanied by an abstract of around 200 words and by approximately six keywords used in the article.
· Book reviews must carry the name of the author/editor and book reviewed, place of publication and publisher, year of publication, number of pages and price.

Spelling and numerical usages; tables and figures

· Use British spellings in all cases rather than US spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘program’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’). Use ‘s’ spellings instead of ‘z’ spellings; this means that words ending with ‘-ize’, ‘ization’, etc., will be spelt with ‘s’ (e.g., ‘recognise’, ‘organise’, ‘civilise’).
· 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 minimized, but used consistently.
· Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). 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. Graphs and charts should be in MS Office format and should be editable.
· All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi and1500 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). All photographs/scanned images should be provided separately.

References and citations

· 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. The journal follows the American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition style for references.

· Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetised 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.

a) Chronological listing: If more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, they should be listed by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.

b) Sentence case: In references, sentence case (only the first word and any proper noun are capitalised – e.g., ‘The software industry in India’) is to be followed for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc.

c) Title case: In references, journal titles are put in title case (first letter of all words except articles and conjunctions are capitalised – e.g., Journal of Business Ethics).

d) Italicise: Book and journal titles are to be italicised.

· Citations and references should follow the guidelines below (based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition). Some examples are given below:
