Further information about the journal including links to the online sample copy and contents pages can be found on the journal homepage

Papers accepted become the copyright of the Journal, unless otherwise specifically agreed.

All submissions should be made online at AIDS Care's Manuscript Central site. New users should first create an account. Once a user is logged onto the site submissions should be made via the Author Centre.

You should prepare and upload two versions of your manuscript. One should be a complete text; the other should have all information identifying the author removed from files to allow them to be sent anonymously to referees. Upload the anonymised version as a "Main Document" and the complete text as a "File not for Review".

Papers will be considered providing that they have not previously been published or submitted simultaneously elsewhere for publication.

Manuscript format should be in the style of the American Psychological Association. Manuscripts can be in these formats: (i) Short reports not exceeding 1500 words; (ii) Original articles of 1,500-3,000 words. We may also consider exceptional papers of up to 5,000 words. The word count does not include references, figures and tables.

Manuscripts should be double spaced, with ample margins of at least one inch. Footnotes to the text should be avoided wherever this is reasonably possible. All identifying information should be removed from the Manuscript Files for Review prior to submission, as detailed above.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words, and form a continuous piece of text with no subheadings.

References should be in the APA format, as follows:

Di Clemente, R.J., & Peterson, S. (1994). Preventing AIDS: theories and methods of behavioral intervention. New York: Plenum Press.

Philpot, C.R., Harcourt, C.L., & Edwards, J.M. (1991). A survey of female prostitutes at risk of HIV infection and other sexually transmissible diseases. Genitourinary Medicine, 67, 384-388.

Selwyn, P.A., & Antoniello, P. (1993). Reproductive decision-making among women with HIV infection. In M. A. Johnson & F. D. Johnstone (Eds), HIV infection in women (pp. 173-185). Edinburgh: Churchill Livingstone.

Titles of journals should not be abbreviated.

Illustrations should not be inserted in the text but each provided as separate files and given figure numbers and title of paper and name. All photographs, graphs and diagrams should be referred to as Figures and should be numbered consecutively in the text in Arabic numerals (e.g. Fig. 3). Captions for the figures should be provided and should make interpretation possible without reference to the text. Captions should include keys to symbols.

Tables should be submitted as separate files and should be given Arabic numbers (e.g. Table 3). Their approximate position in the text should be indicated. Units should appear in parentheses in the column heading but not in the body of the table. Words or numerals should be repeated on successive lines; 'ditto' or 'do' should not be used.

Proofs will be sent to the author if there is sufficient time to do so. Proofs including proofs of illustrations are supplied for checking and making essential corrections, not for general revision or alteration. Proofs should be corrected and returned within 3 days of receipt.

Free article access: Corresponding authors will receive free online access to their article through our website (www.informaworld.com) and a complimentary copy of the issue containing their article. Reprints of articles published in this journal can be purchased through Rightslink® when proofs are received. If you have any queries, please contact our reprints department at reprints@tandf.co.uk
