Full Paper Format

Papers should be prepared as a single file (including text, notes, references, figures, and tables) in MS-Word. Papers should be submitted in A4 page format (21×29.7 cm), left and right margins cm, top and bottom 4.5 cm, in font Times New Roman 12, single line spacing. There should be no tabs in paragraphs and a single line spacing should separate paragraphs and titles. Tables, figures and footnotes should be included as they are intended to appear in the final version. Footnotes (in font 10) should be kept to a minimum and numbered as superscripts.

As a rule, submitted articles should not exceed 8,000 words. All pages apart from the first one should be numbered. Subtitles should be concise, clearly marked in bold, and numbered (up to two levels of numbering). No other entries should be bolded. Formulae should be numbered on the right-hand side of the page. In case of long proofs, these should be inserted in a separate Appendix, following the References. Tables and Figures must not use colour, and should be in a format easy to edit, for instance they should take half a page (or a full page) within the indicated margins. They should be clearly labelled at the top, with a legend at the bottom, and should be logically ordered, using Arabic numerals. Sources of the data should be given below tables and figures.

Papers should follow APA style guidelines: Some key points watch out for are as follows. Parenthetic references in the text and in footnotes should be listed by the author surname, with the year of publication in parentheses; in case of more than one author use an ampersand, for instance: (Atkinson, Picketty & Emmanuel, 2011). Narrative citations within the text should use “and” rather than ampersand, for instance: Djankov, Glaeser and La Porta (2003). Use an ampersand in the list of references. When citing works with one or two authors, include the author name(s) in every citation. For works with three or more authors, include the name of only the first author plus “et al.” in every citation (even the first citation). Include all author names in the list of references. If the author is unknown, the first few words of the reference should be used; this is usually the title of the source. For example: (A guide for economy, 2019). Multiple works by the same author are sorted by date in ascending order; if the works are in the same year they should be ordered alphabetically by title and allocated a letter (a, b, c, …) after the date. Cite only the works you have read and incorporated into your writing; readers may find long strings of citations difficult to understand. Before submitting your paper, check that all references cited in the paper are included in the reference list at the end of the paper, and that all papers included in the reference list have been cited in the text. References should be left aligned in alphabetical order in the reference list.
