Instructions for Authors:

***Note to Authors: please make sure your contact address information is clearly visible on the outside of all packages you are sending to Editors.***

Manuscripts, ideally between 5000 and 8000 words, should be sent in electronic format (Word Document) to the Managing Editor, Camillia Fawzi El-Solh, email CELsolh@aol.com and in hard copy to the Managing Editor, Human Development Report Office, UNDP, 304 E. 45th Street, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10017, USA. The Journal accepts submissions in English and French.

The manuscript must be double-spaced, with ample margins, and bear the title of the contribution. A separate sheet should list the name(s) of the author(s), the title of the contribution and the addresses where the work was carried out. Each article should be accompanied by an abstract/summary of 100-150 words on a separate page, followed by key words and a short note of the biographical details. All pages should be numbered. Notes to the text should be kept to a minimum and appear as Endnotes. Sections in the manuscript should be clearly subtitled.

The full postal address, (and e-mail address) of the author should also be included. He/she will be notified of the selection outcome after submission of the manuscript to an anonymous peer review process, and if selected, will check proofs and receive correspondence and off print.

Contributors should bear in mind that they are addressing a diverse audience of academics, policy-makers and development practitioners. Jargon should be avoided where possible and the choice of terms should be clearly defined. Sections in the manuscript should be clearly subtitled.

Tables, figures and captions to illustrations should be completely understandable independent of text. Tables and figures must appear on separate pages (as annexes) and their approximate position should be indicated in the manuscript. Tables should be numbered by Roman numerals and figures by Arabic numerals. Please supply clear copies of figures that cannot be transmitted electronically, in a finished form suitable for reproduction. Figures will not normally be redrawn by the publisher.

References should be indicated in the manuscript by giving the authorís name, with the year of publication in parentheses, e.g. Moser (1997) or (Moser 1997) as appropriate. If several publications by the same author and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. All references cited in the text should be listed in full at the end of the paper in the following standard form:
