Preparation of Final Draft
The submission of a well-prepared typescript or pdf which conforms as
nearly as possible to the style used by ECONOMICA will speed publication.
- Papers should use 10 or 12-point font, on one side of the paper,
with ample margins and double spacing throughout. If a paper
is divided into sections, the introductory one usually requires
no heading or number; subsequent sections should be given Roman numerals,
and the section heading should be in capitals and centred.
Headings of subsections should be flush with the left margin.
Acknowledgements should be made in a separate section at the end of the text.
Tables should be numbered consecutively with
Arabic numerals, and a descriptive heading above each table.
Tables should, as far as possible, be self-explanatory without
reference to the text. Large tables should be typed on separate sheets and the
position of each table in the text indicated by an instruction
such as "Table 2 here". Vertical rules should not be
Figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals,
and should have an explanatory legend or title. Figures should be
submitted on separate sheets. The use of complicated notations within
the figure should be avoided.
The elimination of footnotes almost always
improves the quality of the text. Where their use is unavoidable,
notes should be placed at the end of the article. They should be
consecutively numbered throughout, reference numbers in the text
being typed superscript, without brackets.
