Guidelines for Contributors

  1. BGJSSS welcomes original articles. Articles (Not exceeding 8,000-10,000 words) must be typed on one side of the paper, double- spaced, with wide margins on all four sides. An abstract (not exceeding 100-120 words) must accompany the article.
  2. In the first instance, send only the hard copy of the typescript. If the article is accepted for publication, the contributor(s) will be required to send the soft copy of the article either as an E-mail attachment or in a floppy! compact disk. For E-mail attachments, the preferred format is <.rt!>; for floppy! compact disks, the preferred word processing format is Microsoft Word or Word Perfect for Windows.
  3. Within the text, adopt the author-date method of citation minus the comma. If more than one work of an author is cited, separate the years of publication with a comma (Pandey 2005, 1999). Separate the page numbers of citations by a colon (Uberoi 2002: 264) and hyphenate the inclusive numbers (Uberoi 2005 : 264-65). When more than one author is cited, the entries should be chronological with works of different authors separated by a semicolon. For co-authored works, cite both names (Jayal and Pai 2001; for works authored by three or more authors, use 'et al.' after the first name (Patel et al. 2002). If a citation is repeated within a paragraph without intervening citations, use Ibid., instead of repeating the author's name again, and provide the relevant page number(s) (Ibid.: 42). If gazetteers, reports and works of governmental organisations and other institutions are cited, mention the name of the organisation! institution sponsoring the publication in the citation, fully spelt out at its first' occurrence (Government of India (2005), and use its abbreviation! acronym in subsequent citations (GOI 2005).

Give separately the bibliographic details of all works cited in the article under References in the following sequence: (a) Article: the name(s) of the author(s); the year of publication; title of the article (within single inverted commas); the name of the journal (italicised); and the volume number, the issue number, and the beginning and ending page numbers. (b) Chapter in an edited work or compilation: the name(s) of the author(s); the year of publication; title of the chapter (within single inverted commas); the name(s) of the editor(s)! compiler(s); title of the book (italicised); the beginning and ending page numbers of the chapter; place of publication; and the name of the publisher. (c) Book: the name(s) of the author(s); the year of publication; title of the book (italicised); place, of publication; and the name of the publisher.
