Author Guidelines

You may find it useful to watch this short online tutorial, which outlines the online submission process:


  • For all submissions other than reviews, please provide an abstract of approximately 150 - 200 words which provides your readers with an overview of the paper. As abstracts form part of the data used by information retrieval systems (e.g.Google Scholar) to identify relevant publications, it is important that your abstract clearly states the purpose of your paper and summarizes the content.
  • Please use single-spaced 11-point Verdana for all text, except where stated otherwise.
  • Please use 14-point font for the title, which should be in bold, upper and lower case letters, centered on the page.
  • First level headings should be in bold and in upper case.
  • Second level headings in bold, upper and lower case.
  • Third level headings, including descriptions of tables, figures and images, should be italicised.
  • Text should be aligned left (not justified) except when stated otherwise.
  • Text within tables, diagrams etc - any alignment may be used for clearer presentation of data.
  • Quotations extending to more than three lines of text should form a separate paragraph and should be indented from both left and right margins.
  • New paragraphs should be indicated by a line break rather than being indented.
  • No footnotes please - instead use endnotes. If it is possible to provide links to further information on the internet, please consider using hyperlinks rather than endnotes.
  • Endnotes should be labelled 1, 2, 3 etc., not i, ii, iii etc. They should be placed immediately after the main article, before the list of references.
  • Photographs, diagrams and other audio-visual aids are encouraged. Please include these in the text where and as they should appear. Please provide images in gif or jpeg formats.
  • A list of references should be provided at the end of the paper. References should relate only to material cited within the manuscript . All references should be formatted in APA style, for example:

Herman, C. & Webster, J. (2010). Taking a lifecycle approach: redefining women returners to Science, Engineering and Technology. International Journal of Gender Science and Technology 2(2), 179-205
