Preparing main manuscript text

Quick points:

  • Use double line spacing
  • Include line and page numbering
  • Use SI units: Please ensure that all special characters used are embedded in the text, otherwise they will be lost during conversion to PDF
  • Do not use page breaks in your manuscript

File formats

The following word processor file formats are acceptable for the main manuscript document:

  • Microsoft word (DOC, DOCX)
  • Rich text format (RTF)

Please note: editable files are required for processing in production. If your manuscript contains any non-editable files (such as PDFs) you will be required to re-submit an editable file when you submit your revised manuscript, or after editorial acceptance in case no revision is necessary.

  1. Contributors must provide their affiliations and complete postal and E-mail addresses with their papers. If there are two or more authors, then the corresponding author’s name and address details must be specified clearly.
  2. 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. In case there are two or more authors, the corresponding author needs to sign the copyright form.
  3. All articles should be typed on one side of the paper (preferably A4) and double-spaced throughout (not only the text, but also displayed quotations, notes, references and any other matter). Manuscripts should be submitted in MS Word format. All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words and 4–6 keywords.
  4. Notes should be numbered serially and presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.
  1. British spellings throughout; universal ‘s’ in ‘-ise’ and ‘-isation’ words.
  1. Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes only 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.
     
  2. Use ‘nineteenth century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to ninety-nine, 100 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.
  3. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently.

English 

How can you help improve your manuscript for publication?You can also use our free Grammar Check tools for an evaluation of your work.

  1. Please note that using these tools, or any other service, is not a requirement for publication, nor does it imply or guarantee that editors will accept the article, or even select it for peer review. 
  2. Presenting your work in a well-structured manuscript and in well-written English gives it its best chance for editors and reviewers to understand it and evaluate it fairly. Many researchers find that getting some independent support helps them present their results in the best possible light. The experts at Springer Nature Author Services can help you with manuscript preparation—including English language editing, developmental comments, manuscript formatting, figure preparation, translation, and more
  3. Style and language
  4. Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately, 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. Source for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
  5. 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). All photographs/scanned images should be provided separately.
      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.

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, articles, 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.
