Instructions for Authors:

Mortality 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. Submissions will be subject to evaluation by the editors and, at their discretion, to independent and anonymous peer review. We are not able to guarantee comments beyond acceptance or rejection. It is a condition of acceptance that papers become the copyright of the publisher.

Manuscripts may be in the form of: (1) research papers (not exceeding 8,000 words); or, (2) reviews; or, (3) short reports for rapid publication (not exceeding 2,000 words). Copies should be submitted by email attachment to the Mortality Editorial Office, Email: mortality@bath.ac.uk. All submissions should be in the style of the American Psychological Association (Publication Manual. Fourth edition, 1994). Manuscripts should be double line spaced (including the references), with margins of at least 2.5 cm (1 inch). All pages must be numbered. The first page should include the title of the paper, name(s) of the author(s), and for each author a short institutional address, and biographical note (50 words maximum), and an abbreviated title (for running headlines within the article). At the bottom of the page give the full name and address (including telephone and email address) 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 200 words, followed by five or six keywords, subheadings should be typed on a separate line without numbering, indentation or bold or italic typeface.

References should follow the style of the American Psychological Association. All publications cited in the text should be listed following the text; similarly, all references listed must be mentioned in the text. Within the text references should be indicated by the author's name and year of publication in parentheses, e.g. (Sloane, 1991) or (Howarth & Jupp, 1996), or if there are more than two authors, (Gallico et al., 1985). Where several references are quoted consecutively within the text the order should be chronological, e.g. (Sloane, 1991; Dickenson & Johnson, 1993), or within a single year, alphabetical (Dinnage, 1990; Kellehar, 1990; Williams, 1990). If more than one paper from the same author(s) and year are listed, the date should be followed by (a), (b), etc., e.g. (Walter, 1991a). References should be listed alphabetically by author on a separate sheet(s) (double spaced) in the following standard form, capitalisation and punctuation:

(a) for periodical articles (titles of journals should not be abbreviated):
KSELMAN, T. (1988). Funeral conflicts in nineteenth-century France. Comparative Studies in Society and History, 30, 312-332.

(b) for books:
PARRY, J.P. (1994). Death in Banaras. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

(c) for chapters within multi-authored books:
YOUNG, G. (1981). Hospice and health care. In C. SAUNDERS, D.H. SUMMERS & N. TELLER (Eds), Hospice: the living idea (pp. 75-89). London: Edward Arnold.

All illustrations (including photographs, graphs and diagrams) should be referred to as Figures and their position indicated in the text (e.g. Fig. 3). Each should be submitted on a separate sheet of paper, numbered on the back with Figure number (Arabic numerals) and the title of the paper. The captions of all figures should be submitted on a separate sheet, should include keys to symbols, and should make interpretation possible without reference to the text. Figures should ideally be professionally drawn and designed with the format of the journal (175x248 mm) in mind and should be capable of reduction.

Tables should be submitted on separate sheets, numbered in Arabic numerals, and their position indicated in the text (e.g. Table 1). Each table should have a short, self-explanatory title. Vertical rules should not be used to separate columns. Units should appear in parentheses in the column heading but not in the body of the table. Any explanatory notes should be given as a footnote at the bottom of the table.

Proofs will be sent by email 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 within 48 hours 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

It is a condition of publication that authors assign copyright or licence the publication rights in their articles, including abstracts, in Taylor & Francis. This enables us to ensure full copyright protection and to disseminate the article, and 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 including illustrations for which authors must bear permission costs.
