Instructions for Authors:

Health, Risk & Society welcomes original contributions from all parts of the world on the understanding that their contents have not previously been published nor submitted elsewhere for publication. It is a condition of acceptance that papers become the copyright of the publisher. Authors are themselves responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources.

All submissions should be made online at Health Risk & Society'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.

Authors should prepare and upload two versions of their manuscript. One should be a complete text, while in the second all document information identifying the author should be removed from files to allow them to be sent anonymously to referees. When uploading files authors will then be able to define the non-anonymous version as "File not for review".

Papers should be double spaced throughout (including the references), with margins of at least 2.5 cm (1 inch).

The first page should include the title of the paper, first name, middle initial(s) and last name of the author(s), and for each author a short institutional address, and an abbreviated title (for running headlines within the article). At the bottom of the page give the full name and address (including telephone numbers and e-mail address if possible) of the author to whom all correspondence (including proofs) should be sent. The second page should repeat the title and contain an abstract of not more than 250 words. The third page should repeat the title as a heading to the main body of the text. Long articles may need subheadings within some sections to clarify their content. Within the text section headings and subheadings should be typed on a separate line without numbering, indentation or bold or italic typeface. Foreign language words or phrases should be in italics with appropriate explanatory footnotes.

References should follow the Harvard system, i.e. they should be indicated in the typescript by giving the author's names, with the year of publication in parentheses, e.g. Smith (1984); or if there are more than three authors - Smith et al. (1984). If several papers from the same authors and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. The references should be listed in full at the end of the paper on a separate sheet in the following standard form:

GRINYER, A. (1995) Risk, the real world and naïve sociology, in: J. GABE (Ed) Medicine, Health and Risk: Sociological Approaches pp.31-51 (Oxford, Blackwell).

DOUGLAS, M. (1992) Risk and Blame: Essays in Cultural Theory (London, Routledge).

MANTHORPE, J., WALSH, M., ALASZEWSKI, A. AND HARRISON, L. (1997) Issues of risk practice and welfare in learning disability services, Disability & Society, 12, pp. 69-82.

Titles of journals should not be abbreviated.

Tables and figures should be completely understandable independent of the text. Tables must be typed on separate sheets and not included as part of the text. The captions to illustrations should be gathered together and typed on a separate sheet. Tables should be numbered by Roman numerals, and figures by Arabic numerals. The approximate position of tables and figures should be indicated in the manuscript. Please supply clear copies of artwork for figures in a finished form suitable for reproduction. Figures will not normally be redrawn by the publisher. Photographs should be unmounted, high-contrast glossy prints, with as much contrast as the subject allows.

Proofs will be sent by fax or air mail to the author nominated for correspondence. Proofs are supplied for checking and making essential typographical corrections, not for general revision or alteration. Proofs must be returned (by air mail or fax) within 72 hours of receipt. While reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that such proofreading is accurate, neither the Editors nor the Publishers shall be responsible for any errors.

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

There are no page charges

It is a condition of publication that authors assign copyright or licence the publication rights in their articles, including abstracts, to Taylor & Francis. This enables us to ensure full copyright protection and to disseminate the article, and of course the Journal, to the widest possible readership in print and electronic formats as appropriate. Authors retain many rights under the Taylor & Francis rights policies, which can be found at www.informaworld.com/authors_journals_copyright_position. Authors are themselves responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce copyright material from other sources.
