Author Guidelines

In order to facilitate publication, the authors are kindly requested to submit texts written according to the rules presented below.

The works submitted to the editor‘s office will be reviewed, therefore, yuo are asked to send two printed copies (with signatare of author) of the article (one for the editor and one for the reviewer), and a oppy, DC, or a file delivered in an electronic way to arvydas.ramonas@ku.lt

 

The authors are kindly asked to make sure the files sent by e-mail or on a oppy or a CD are identical with the final version of the submitted text.

 

The title page

 

The title page should only contain the title without the author’s name and start in the twelfth verse, and then the text formatted according to the rules.

A separate sheet of paper should include a) the author’s name and surname, b) the full name and address of the institution with c) the telephone, fax, and e-mail addresses. If there are several authors you are asked to indicate the main author responsible for correspondence. If the main author has not been indicated the first listed will play that role.

 

The main text

 

The manuscript should be typed in a word processor (*.doc and *.rtf files accepted), in A4 format with standard margins and spacing for Times New Roman size 12 font. The entire article (with the abstract, computer-generated figures and tables, and the table of contents) should not exceed 10 pages in the A4 format (up to 6,000 words if the article consists of the text only). Include all illustrations in separate *.tif files.

The article should be preceded by an abstract of 100–300 words and four to seven keywords, for instance: population education economics, migration, urbanisation, industrialisation, etc. Authors are also welcome to include a 100–200 words personal biography, which should also precede their text.

Tables and figures should be placed at the right place or at the end of the manuscript and the authors should clearly indicate where they should fit in the text.

Do not use footnotes. If necessary number them in the text (1), (2), and insert the Notes section on the last page just before the References (Bibliography). Yuo may include Acknowledgements below Notes.

The articles are accepted in good English only. General rules for text writing and editing of Modern Language Association apply, MLA Style. Prior to publication all accepted articles must be approved by the Editorial Board and if need be corrected texts shold be submitted to the editors again.The spelling should follow the Oxford English Dictionary or English Lithuanian Dictionary.

Tables, figures, illustrations, and photographs

 

The tables should be numbered using Arabic numbers, and the title must be placed above the table. If footnotes are needed, the authors shold mark them with letters a, b, c, etc., and place them below the tables. Footnotes, symbols, sources, etc. should be written all under the tables in Times New Roman font, size 8 and in italics.

The figures should be marked as „Fig“, and such an expression must be used in the text. They should be numbered using Arabic numbers. The illustrationsshould be of such quality that the editor would not have to correct them (computer generated – CorelDRAW or equivalent): 300 dpi and above 300 resolution. They should be black and white (max 5 steps of greyness). Uncompressed images, e.g. tif format, are preferred. Do not merge illustrations with the text as word processors deteriorate images to less then 200 dpi. Should you e-mail the article, make sure you provide all illustrations in separate files.

Authors should place the title of the illustration below the illustration with the symbols and the source, etc. all written in size 8 font, in italics.

 

References

 

The text should quote the authors, the year of pullication and the page (if it is a citation), e.g. (Petraitis, 2004, p. 31), and the full credits should be included in the References at the end of the main text. Should the same author and year re-occur, the letters a, b, c, etc. must be added.
