    Publication Ethics

    SAGE is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors and view the Publication Ethics page on the SAGE Author Gateway

    Guidelines

    1. Articles should be written in MS Word, Times New Roman font, and should be submitted in soft copy only. Manuscripts should normally not exceed 30 typed pages with the cover page bearing only the title of the article, author/s’ names, designations, corresponding addresses, phone/fax numbers, and email addresses. Author/s’ name should not appear on any other page.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of 150–200 words, 3–5 JEL Classifications and 4–6 keywords.
       
    4. Use British spellings in all cases rather than American spellings (hence, ‘programme’ not ‘program’, ‘labour’ not ‘labor’, and ‘centre’ and not ‘center’).
       
    5. Use ‘z’ spellings instead of ‘s’ spellings. This means that words ending with ‘-ise’, ‘isation’, etc., will be spelt with ‘z’ (e.g., ‘recognize’, ‘organize’, ‘civilize’).
       
    6. Single quotes should be used.  Double quotes should only be used within single quotes. Quotations of 45 words or more should be separated from the text and indented with one space with a line space above and below.
       
    7. Notes should be numbered serially and presented as footnotes.
       
    8. Use ‘twentieth 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 (e.g., not lakhs and crores).
       
    9. Use of italics and diacriticals should be minimized, but used consistently.
       
    10. Tables and figures to be indicated by numbers separately (see Table 1), not by placement (see Table below). All Figures and Tables should be cited in the text. Caption and Source details for figures and tables should be mentioned irrespective of whether or not they require permissions. Figures and tables should be provided in editable format.
       
    11. All photographs and scanned images should have a resolution of minimum 300 dpi and 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).
       
    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.
    • Arrangement of references: Reference list entries should be alphabetized 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.
       
    • 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.
       
    • 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.
       
    • 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).
       
    • Italicize: Book and Journal titles are to be italicized.
       
    • 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..
    • One work by three or more authors: (Basu, Banerji & Chatterjee, 2007) [first instance]; Basu et al. (2007) [Second instance onwards].
    • 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)
    • Two or more works with different authors: (Gogel, 1996; Miller, 1999)
    • Secondary sources: Allport's diary (as cited in Nicholson, 2003).
