All authors of a manuscript should include their full names, affiliations, postal addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses on the cover page of the manuscript. One author should be identified as the corresponding author. Please give the affiliation where the research was conducted. If any of the named co-authors moves affiliation during the peer review process, the new affiliation can be given as a footnote.
Please note that no changes to affiliation can be made after the manuscript is accepted. Please note that the email address of the corresponding author will normally be displayed in the article PDF (depending on the journal style) and the online article.

Each manuscript should have 4 to 6 keywords, which can be used for indexing purposes, following the Thomson Reuters as well the JEL classification.
The file should include the complete text, references, tables and figures.
Prepare your figures at publication quality resolution, using applications capable of generating high-resolution files (1200 dpi for line art, 600 dpi for greyscale and 300 dpi for colour). The printing process requires your figures to be in this format if your paper is accepted and printed.
All the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references are in a single typeface and point size – as 12 pt Times New Roman.

Once a manuscript is accepted, a copy Editor will decide the typeface and size of the different elements of the article.
