    Format of mss

    Each manuscript should contain:

    (i) title page with full title and subtitle (if any). For the purposes of blind refereeing, full name of each author with current affiliation and full address/phone/fax/email details plus short biographical note should be supplied on a separate sheet. Owing to the broad range of subject matter, authors are encouraged to supply the names of one or more potential referees.

    (ii) abstract of 100-150 words

    (iii) up to 10 key words

    (iv) main text and word count - articles of 8000 words including notes and references will be accepted for review. Text to be clearly organized, with a clear hierarchy of headings and subheadings and quotations exceeding 40 words displayed, indented, in the text.

    (v) end notes, if necessary, should be signalled by superscript numbers in the main text and listed at the end of the text before the references.

    (vi) references in both the text and end notes should follow Harvard style. References should be cited in the text as: (author, date: page).

    (vii) an alphabetical references section should follow the text and end notes, using the Harvard system (for examples, see Notes for Authors on the journal website, sagepublications.com).

    Tables: tables should be typed (double line-spaced) on separate sheets and their position indicated by a marginal note in the text. All tables should have short descriptive captions with footnotes and their source(s) typed below the tables.

    Illustrations: all line diagrams and photographs are termed 'Figures' and should be referred to as such in the manuscript. They should be numbered consecutively. Line diagrams should be presented as camera-ready copy on glossy paper (b/w - unless an arrangement has been made to reproduce in colour) and, if possible, on disk as EPS files (all fonts embedded) or TIFF files (with LZW compression) - b/w only. For scanning, photographs should preferably be submitted as clear, glossy, unmounted b/w prints with a good range of contrast or on disk as TIFF files (with LZW compression, resolution ×2 line screen. e.g. 266 dpi for 133-line screen output). Photographs should preferably be submitted as clear, glossy, unmounted black and white prints with a good range of contrast. Slides are also acceptable. All figures should have short descriptive captions typed on a separate sheet.

    Authors are responsible for obtaining permissions from copyright holders for reproducing any illustrations, tables, figures or lengthy quotations previously published elsewhere. Permission letters must be supplied to SAGE.

    Style: use a clear readable style, avoiding jargon. If technical terms or acronyms must be included, define them when first used. Use non-racist, non-sexist language and plurals rather then he/she.

    Spellings: UK or US spellings may be used with '-ize' spellings as given in the Oxford English Dictionary (e.g. organize, recognize).

    Punctuation: use single quotation marks with double quotes inside single quotes. Present dates in the form 1 May 1998. Do not use points in abbreviations, contractions or acronyms (e.g. AD, USA, Dr, PhD).

    Copyright: before publication authors are requested to assign copyright to SAGE, subject to retaining their right to reuse the material in other publications written or edited by themselves and due to be published preferably at least one year after initial publication in the Journal.

    Proofs and offprints: authors will receive proofs of their articles and be asked to send corrections to the publisher within 2 weeks. They will receive a complimentary journal copy. A maximum of 5 journal copies will be supplied for multi-authored articles. These will be supplied to the main author. And an electronic link to reproduce 25 offprints of their article.

    Reviews: Journalism includes a section in which books and other significant contributions to the field are reviewed. This includes both essay length and shorter contributions. Books for review and manuscripts of reviews should be sent to
