Notes for Contributors

  1. The Editors will not consider articles that are currently under consideration elsewhere.
  1. All manuscripts must be submitted formatted for 8.5” by 11” (or A4) paper, with one-inch (or 2.5-cm) margins on all sides.  A 12-point font with double spacing must be used for the main text, with a 10-point font and 1.5 spacing for footnotes.  Tables and figures must be in a 10-point font with 1.5 spacing unless clarity requires a deviation. The pages must be numbered and are limited to a maximum of 35, inclusive of all material that is intended to be published (as opposed to any appendices, etc., that may be posted on the author(s)’ website).

The first page must give only, in the following order:

  1. Authors are advised to limit appendices to 3-4 pages.  However, if authors wish to make more extended appendices available from their own website, a link should be provided and a copy must be deposited with the Journal Office for reference purposes.
  1. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in both PDF and Word formatto jtep@management.bath.ac.uk .  Only one file of each format is to be submitted, i.e., all text, tables, figures, etc., are to be incorporated in the file rather than in separate files.  Articles in other formats will not be considered.
  1. Footnotes must be brief and be placed at the bottom of the relevant page.
  1. Titles should avoid all but the most widely known abbreviations and acronyms.
  1. Where mathematical arguments are used, the full workings should accompany the article in order to assist the referee. They will not be published.
  1. Statistical tables should be clearly headed and the reader should be able to understand the meaning of each row or column without reference to the text.
  1. References should be carefully checked and complete. Only references cited in the text should be included. The Harvard System must be used, as in the present volume.
  1. Authors are expected to read proofs and return them quickly and to keep corrections to a minimum level. Any alterations made after the proof stage will be subject to a charge.
  1. A ‘publish before print’ system is operated by the Journal in which articles are published online as soon as the final version has been accepted.
  1. Authors are expected to sign a Copyright Assignment Form, granting copyright of their article to the Journal of Transport Economics and Policy.
  1. The corresponding author will receive the PDF of the published article.
  1. It is essential that the authors keep the Journal office informed of any changes in their email and/or address.

Manuscripts that do not comply with these instructions will be returned for revision.
