Instructions for Authors


Manuscript submission

Manuscript Submission

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. Both research and narrative-style papers are accepted.


Length of paper

Articles should normally be no longer than 5,000 words including notes and references.


Title page

Title Page

The title page should include:

– The name(s) of the author(s)

– A concise and informative title

– The affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s)

– The e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author


Please provide an abstract of 50 to 100 words. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references.

Keywords – Please provide 4 to 6 keywords which can be used for indexing purposes.


Text Formatting

Manuscripts should be submitted in Word.

– Use a normal, plain font (e.g., 14-point Times Roman, 1,5 spacing) for text.

– Use italics for emphasis.

– Use the automatic page numbering function to number the pages.

– Use tab stops or other commands for indents, not the space bar.

– Use the table function, not spreadsheets, to make tables.

– Use the equation editor or MathType for equations.

– Save your file in docx format (Word 2007 or higher) or doc format (older Word versions).



Please use no more than three levels of displayed headings.



Abbreviations should be defined at first mention and used consistently thereafter.



Footnotes can be used to give additional information, which may include the citation of a reference included in the reference list. They should not consist solely of a reference citation, and they should never include the bibliographic details of a reference. They should also not contain any figures or tables.

Footnotes to the text are numbered consecutively; those to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data). Footnotes to the title or the authors of the article are not given reference symbols.

Always use footnotes instead of endnotes.



Cite references in the text by name and year in parentheses. Some examples:

– Negotiation research spans many disciplines (Thompson 1990).

– This result was later contradicted by Becker and Seligman (1996).

– This effect has been widely studied (Abbott 1991; Barakat et al. 1995; Kelso and Smith 1998; Medvec et al. 1993).


Reference list

The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished works should only be mentioned in the text. Do not use footnotes or endnotes as a substitute for a reference list.

Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last names of the first author of each work.

– All tables are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.

– Identify any previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference at the end of the table caption.

– Footnotes to tables should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters (or asterisks for significance values and other statistical data) and included beneath the table body.


Artwork and Illustrations Guidelines

For the best quality final product, it is highly recommended that you submit all of your artwork – photographs, line drawings, etc. – in an electronic format. Your art will then be produced to the highest standards with the greatest accuracy to detail. The published work will directly reflect the quality of the artwork provided.

Electronic Figure Submission

– Supply all figures electronically.

– Name your figure files with “Fig” and the figure number.

Figure Lettering

– To add lettering, it is best to use Helvetica or Arial (sans serif fonts).

– Keep lettering consistently sized throughout your final-sized artwork, usually about 2–3 mm (12–14 pt).

– Variance of type size within an illustration should be minimal, e.g., do not use 8-pt type on an axis and 20-pt type for the axis label.

– Avoid effects such as shading, outline letters, etc.

– Do not include titles or captions within your illustrations.


Figure Numbering

– All figures are to be numbered using Arabic numerals.

– Figures should always be cited in text in consecutive numerical order.

– Figure parts should be denoted by lowercase letters (a, b, c, etc.).

– If an appendix appears in your article and it contains one or more figures, continue the consecutive numbering of the main text. Do not number the appendix figures, “A1, A2, A3, etc.”


Figure Captions

– Each figure should have a concise caption describing accurately what the figure depicts. Include the captions in the text file of the manuscript, not in the figure file.

– Figure captions begin with the term Fig. in bold type, followed by the figure number, also in bold type.

– No punctuation is to be included after the number, nor is any punctuation to be placed at the end of the caption.

– Identify previously published material by giving the original source in the form of a reference citation at the end of the figure caption.
