Author Guidelines

Papers accepted become the copyright of the journal, unless otherwise specifically agreed. Manuscripts should be sent to: Dr. Basu Sharma, Management Futures, 297 Kimble Drive, Fredericton, NB, Canada E3B 6YI. Articles can be considered only if two complete copies of each manuscript are submitted. They should be typed on one side of the paper, double spaced, with ample margins, and bear the title of the contribution and name(s), of the author(s). The full postal address of the author who will check proofs and receive correspondence and offprints should also be included. All pages should be numbered.

If the article is typed on a word-processor, a disk should accompany the typescript. Disks should be labeled with the title of the article, the author's name and the software used. If using DOS word processing software, save the document in a DOS or ASCII format with soft carriage returns. Authors should insert only enough commands to provide a legible printout. Ideally such a manuscript should be formatted with regard to the following guidelines:

1. Do not use tabs except in tables.

2. Do not use headers, footers, or pagination.

3. Do not indent block quotations.

4. Do not hypenate or otherwise break words across lines.

5. Do not justify text. In other words, leave the right margin ragged.

6. Do not place lines or boxes around type, as copy within the these areas will not translate.

Figures. Please supply one set of artwork in a finished form, suitable for reproduction.

References. Should be indicated in the typescript by giving the author's name, with the year of publication in parentheses. If several papers by the same author and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. The references should be listed in full at the end of the paper in the following standard from:

Deming, W.E. (1986). Out of the crisis. Cambridge, MA, MIT Center for Advanced Engineering Study.

Kondo, Y. (1990). Emphases of Japanese total quality management in the 1980s. Total Quality Management, 1, 23-32.

Titles of journals should not be abbreviated.

Proofs will be sent to the authors if there is sufficient time to do so. They should be corrected and returned to the publisher within three days. Major alterations to the text cannot be accepted.

Page Fee and Offprints. The journal charges a page fee of U.S. $15 per printed page. Twenty offprints of each paper are supplied free. Additional copies may be purchased and should be ordered when the proofs are returned. Offprints, together with a complete copy of the relevant journal issue, are sent about three weeks after publication.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. All URL addresses in the text (e.g., http://pkp.sfu.ca) are activated and ready to click.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. The text, if submitted to a peer-reviewed section (e.g., Articles), has had the authors' names removed. If an author is cited, "Author" and year are used in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of author's name, paper title, etc. The author's name has also been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu.
