(3) Papers will be considered in any form, but authors of papers accepted for publication will be expected to provide a final copy conforming to the general style of the Journal as outlined in notes 4 through 13 below.

(4) Manuscripts should be 1,5 spaced, with wide margins, and printed on one side of the paper only. All pages should be numbered in sequence. Titles and subtitles should be short.
References, tables, and captions for the figures should be printed on separate pages.

(5) The first page of the manuscript should contain the following information:
(i) the title; (ii) the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the author(s); (iii) an abstract of not more than 100 words. A footnote on the same sheet should give the name, address, and telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author [as well as an e-mail address].

(6) The first page of the manuscript should also contain at least one classification code according to the Classification System for Journal Articles as used by the Journal of Economic Literature; in addition, up to five key words should be supplied.
The classification system used in JEL can be found at:

(7) Acknowledgements and information on grants received can be given in a first footnote, which should not be included in the consecutive numbering of footnotes.

(8) Footnotes should be kept to a minimum and numbered consecutively throughout the text with superscript Arabic numerals.

(9) Displayed formulae should be numbered consecutively throughout the manuscript as (1), (2), etc. against the right-hand margin of the page. In cases where the derivation of formulae has been abbreviated, it is of great help to the referees if the full derivation can be presented on a separate sheet (not to be published).

(10) References to publications should be as follows: ‘Smith (1992) reported that...’ or ‘This problem has been studied previously (e.g., Smith et al., 1969)’. The author should make sure that there is a strict one-to-one correspondence between the names and years in the text and those on the list. The list of references should appear at the end of the main text (after any appendices, but before tables and captions for figures). It should be double spaced and listed in alphabetical order by author’s name. References should appear as follows:

For monographs
Sen, A., 1970, Collective Choice and Social Welfare, San Francisco: Holden Day.

For contributions to collective works
Kornai, J., 1991, Stabilization and Economic Transition in Hungary: The Next Two Years, in J. de Melo and A. Sapir (eds.), Trade Theory and Economic Reform: North, South and East, Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 307-326.

For periodicals
Magdalinos, M., 1990, “The Classical Principles of Testing Using Instrumental VariablesEstimates”, Journal of Econometrics, 44, 241-279.

Note that journal titles should not be abbreviated.

(11) Illustrations will be reproduced photographically from originals supplied by the author; they will not be redrawn by the publisher. Please provide all illustrations in quadruplicate (one high-contrast original and three photocopies). Care should be taken that lettering and symbols are of a comparable size. The illustrations should not be inserted in the text, and should be marked on the back with figure number, title of paper, and author’s name. All graphs and diagrams should be referred to as figures, and should be numbered consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals. Illustration for papers submitted as electronic manuscripts should be in traditional form.

(12) Tables should be numbered consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals and printed on separate sheets.

(13) Accepted papers should be submitted in electronic form in a storage media (i.e. CD, DVD, USB, etc.) with accompanying manuscript. Electronic manuscripts have the advantage that there is no need for re-setting of text, thereby avoiding the possibility of introducing errors and resulting in reliable and fast delivery of proofs. The preferred format is, either in .doc or in .docx. Make absolutely sure that the file on the disk and the printout are identical.

(14) Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author. Proofs should be corrected carefully; the responsibility for detecting errors lies with the author. Corrections should be restricted to instances in which the proof is at variance with the manuscript.
