Manuscripts intended for publication should be written in English, either British or American spelling variants, but not a mixture.
The advisable length limit for research paper manuscripts is not more than 25 typewritten single-spaced pages. Contributions for the New Development in Time Technology section should not exceed one single-spaced page with links and information for the entire project.
The entire manuscript (including abstract, keywords, references, captions, and notes) should be typed single-spaced on 21x29 cm (A4) paper or on 8 ½ x 11 inch. Liberal margins (2,5 cm) should be left at the top and the bottom, as well as the sides of each page.
Manuscripts should be arranged in the following order:
First page (single-spaced):
(a) title and subtitle (if any) of paper
(b) full name(s) of author(s)
(c) authors’ addresses (for all authors give full mailing addresses, including e-mail address, add to one of these addresses ‘(for correspondence)’, date of submission
(d) abstract (no more than 250 words)
(e) key words 1 (according to The Journal of Economic Literature (JEL))
(f) key words 2 (according to you) (an IATUR/eIJTUR key word list is under construction)
Following pages (single-spaced):
Text (introduction, theoretical background, materials and methods, results, discussions) including all numbered tables and extra numbered figures, and acknowledgement (first footnote, if applicable);
Tables and figures should have a concise title followed by a legend which makes the general meaning of the compiled data comprehensible without reference to the text. At the end of each table or figure the source of data behind should be given.
References in the text should appear as follows: ‘Smith (2002) reported that …’ or ‘(see Smith et al. (2002, p.12))’.
The list of references should be given in alphabetical order of the author’s name. Title of journals should not be abbreviated. The following reference style should be used:
