The Structure of the ArticleTitle;
- JEL Classification (http://www.aeaweb.org/);
- References (http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm).
The content of the article should include the following sections:
- Review of existing literature;
- Research methodology;
- Results and debates;
The content of each of these sections is detailed in the existing Document Template on the site.
Tables and charts must be submitted in black and white, with up to 6 shades of gray. For ease of editing, it is recommended that charts or figures drawn up in other programs (e.g. Microsoft Excel) be enclosed in their separate text format, along with the data table based on which they were drawn up, in the corresponding application.
As for the charts that represent changes in quality, only the symbols of the respective sizes shall be indicated on the coordinate axes (at the ends and outside the drawing); instead, in the case of quantitative charts, the coordinate axes shall also include the measurement units corresponding to the varying sizes. The figures (charts) must have a name and an identifier (eg: Figure no. 4), to which reference is made in the text of the article.
As far as the table data material is concerned, it should not exceed the format of the Journal’s text page. Tables must have a cohesive presentation, each table should be numbered (having an identifier) and have a title (a name). The identifier and the name are written straight and centered above the table. References from the text to the tables shall be made as follows: Table no. X. For tables containing notes, the notes shall be written immediately after the table.
In both the illustrative material and the table material, it is mandatory to enter the source immediately below the material or to the bottom of the page.
Harvard style shall be used to write the bibliography. It is recommended for article writers to have as many titles as possible, and at least 2 or 3 foreign authors, in their bibliography.
Self-reference is not encouraged.
