A Guide

Abstract: These instructions are intended to provide guidance to contributors to The Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy when preparing a manuscript for publication. Please read these general instructions carefully before beginning the final preparation of your manuscript. This document presents you with a model for the final layout. It is by no means original and authors may find similarities with sets of instructions given by other publishers. It is nonetheless to be complied with thoroughly.


We kindly ask you to submit your document in Word, RTF or PDF. (Texts need to be easily accessible by a number of different persons involved in the refereeing and the revision of manuscript. For this reason, only the FINAL VERSION of a manuscript may be submitted in LaTeX format. Authors are required to consult with the editors to confirm at which point of the editorial process they are welcome to do so.)


2.1. Format and Style
The text should be in clear, concise English. Please be consistent in punctuation, abbreviations, spelling (British vs. American), headings, and the style of referencing. Please make sure a native speaker of English has proofread the final version of your text.

2.2. Layout of the Opening Chapter Page
The opening page should consist of the title, the subtitle (if used) and an abstract (100-200 words), then the opening text or the first heading.

2.3. Fonts
The font for your manuscript should be a standard serif font such as Times New Roman, in size 12.

If numbering is used in headings, it should be Arabic, NOT Roman. Please distinguish between the following four levels of headings:


4.1. Subheads, Second Order
Again, it should be Arabic, not Roman.

4.1.1. Subheads, Third Order
Subheads, Fourth Order. No numbering is used. Where a subhead appears directly after another subhead, leave less space.

Equations should be centered on the page, with the equation number in parentheses, flush right.
E=mc2    (1)
Wherever possible, try to avoid breaking equations between parentheses, brackets, or braces.

Sample sentence numbers should be indented 0.5 cm. The sentence itself should be indented 2 cm.
(1)    Please put space above and below the sample sentence.

Quotations should be indented 1 cm on the left and on the right.
After long quotations, follow indentation or lack of indentation depending on whether a new paragraph is required.

Please centre tables on the page, unless it is necessary to use the full page width. Font size 9 pts.

Consider References title as a Subhead first order. The font size should be 12 pts. Second and subsequent lines of each reference to be indented slightly (0.5 cm). The examples of bibliographical references below reflect humanities citation style. Thank you for using it.
