  • Manuscript Submission Guidelines for Journal of Development Policy and Practice

    1. Manuscripts and all editorial correspondence should be addressed to: The Editors, Journal of Development Policy and Practice, Aequitas Consulting Pvt. Ltd, Noida India. E-mail: jdpp@aequitas.co 
       
    2. Contributors must provide their affiliations and complete postal and e-mail addresses with their articles.
       
    3. All articles should be double-spaced throughout (not only the text but also displayed quotations, notes, references and any other matter). Manuscripts should be submitted to the email address mentioned in Point 1. Contributions should be in MS Word format.
       
    4. Authors will be provided with a copyright form once the contribution is accepted for publication. The submission will be considered as final only after the filled-in and signed copyright form is received. In case there are two or more authors, the corresponding author needs to sign the copyright form.
       
    5. All articles must be accompanied by 4–6 keywords and an abstract of 150–200 words. Notes should be numbered serially and presented at the end of the article. Notes must contain more than a mere reference.
       
    6. British spellings throughout; universal ‘s’ in ‘-ise’, ‘-isation’ words.
       
    7. Use single quotes throughout. Double quotes only to be used within single quotes. Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.
       
    8. Use ‘19th century’, ‘1980s’. Spell out numbers from one to nine, 10 and above to remain in figures. However, for exact measurements, use only figures (3 km, 9 per cent, not %). Use thousands and millions, not lakhs and crores. Avoid saying ‘recently’ but rather give the year.
       
    9. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimised, but used consistently. Use italics only for the first time the word or phrase is used. Do not italicize abbreviations like etc., et al., and ibid. An exception is sic, which should be italicized and placed in square brackets.
       
    10. Tables and figures to be indicated by number separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). Present each table and figure on a separate sheet of paper, gathering them together at the end of the article. All figures and tables should be cited in the text. Source for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions.
       
    11. All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi/1500 pixels and their format should be TIFF or JPEG. Due permissions should be taken for copyright protected photographs/images. Even for photographs/images available in the public domain, it should be clearly ascertained whether or not their reproduction requires permission for purposes of publishing (which is a profit-making endeavor). All photographs/scanned images should be provided separately.
       
    12. A consolidated listing of all books, articles, essays, theses and documents referred to (including any referred to in the tables, graphs and maps) should be provided at the end of the article.
       
    13. Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetised by the last name of the first author of each work. In each reference, authors’ names are inverted (last name first) for all authors (first, second or subsequent ones); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work unless the work has more than six authors. If the work has more than six authors, list the first six authors and then use et al. after the sixth author’s name.

      a) Chronological listing: If more than one work by the same author(s) is cited, they should be listed in order by the year of publication, starting with the earliest.

      b) Sentence case: In references, sentence case (only the first word and any proper noun are capitalized – e.g., ‘The software industry in India’) is to be followed for the titles of papers, books, articles, etc.

      c) Title case: In references, Journal titles are put in title case (first letter of all words except articles and conjunctions are capitalized – e.g., Journal of Business Ethics).

      d) Italicize: Book and Journal titles are to be italicized.
       

    14. Citations and References should adhere to the guidelines below (based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition). Some examples are given below:

    In-text citations:

    One work by one author: (Kessler, 2003, p. 50) or ‘Kessler (2003) found that among the epidemiological samples..’.
    One work by two authors: (Joreskog & Sorborn, 2007, pp. 50–66) or Joreskog and Sorborn (2007) found that..

    Groups or organizations or universities: (University of Pittsburgh, 2007) or University of Pittsburgh (2007).
    Authors with same surname: Include the initials in all the in-text citations even if the year of publication differs, e.g., (I. Light, 2006; M.A. Light, 2008).
    Works with no identified author or anonymous author: Cite the first few words of the reference entry (title) and then the year, e.g., (‘Study finds’, 2007); (Anonymous, 1998).
    If abbreviations are provided, then the style to be followed is: (National Institute of Mental Health [NIMH], 2003) in the first citation and (NIMH, 2003) in subsequent citations.
    Two or more works by same author: (Gogel, 1990, 2006, in press)
