    Titles and section headings should be clear and brief. Longer quotations (exceeding 40 words) should appear indented in the text. British spelling should be used throughout. The 'z' should be used in words where it has generally replaced the 's', e.g. organize. Indicate italic type by underlining and use single quotation marks. Dates should be in the form 9 May 2002. Take out points in USA and other such abbreviations and do not use points after Dr, Mr, Mrs. Use the smallest number of numerals possible (e.g. 10-19, 42-5, 1961-4, 1961-75); spell out numbers from one to nine; use numerals for 10 and over.

    Tables and figures should have short, descriptive titles. All footnotes to tables and their source(s) should be placed under the tables. Column headings should clearly define the data presented.

    Essential notes should be indicated by superscript numbers in the text and collected on a single page at the end of the text. References cited in the text should read thus: Brown (2001: 63-4), Brown and Smith (2000, 2003). Use 'et al.' when citing a work by more than two authors, e.g. Brown et al. (2004). The letters, a, b, c, etc. should be used to distinguish citations of different works by the same author in the same year, e.g. Brown (2000a, 2000b). All references cited in the text should be listed alphabetically and presented in full after the notes, using the following style:
