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.***

Main articles should not normally exceed a maximum of 5000 words: articles and reviews express the personal view of the authors. Two copies of each typescript should be submitted to Mr C. Botton, Science Education Centre, School of Education, University of Hull, Hull HU6 7RX, UK. They should be typed on one side of A4 paper, double spaced and should indicate the title of the contribution, the full name(s) of the author(s) and their institution/organisation. The full postal address of the main author is required for sending proofs, offprints and for necessary correspondence. An abstract of the article of between 100 and 200 words should be included on a separate page.

Research in Science and Technological Education welcomes academic papers from authors in any part of the world. Papers should report unpublished work not elsewhere under consideration. They should be as concise as clarity permits and free from jargon. Contributors are asked to pay particular attention to the conventions of the Journal when reporting empirical research. The standard pattern of presentation for such research should embrace an introduction, stating aims and objectives of the research and a review of previous work; a statement of the sample, procedure and tests; a factual statement of the results and a discussion of their significance.

Tables, figures, illustrations, etc. Tables should be typed out on separate sheets and not included in the actual text. They should be numbered in Roman numerals and figures in Arabic numerals. The approximate position of tables and figures should be indicated in the typescript. Please supply one set of artwork for figures in a finished form, suitable for reproduction. Figures will not normally be redrawn by the publisher.

Style Guidelines

If you have any questions about references or formatting your article, please contact authorqueries@tandf.co.uk.

Electronic Submission. Authors should send the final, revised version of their articles in both hard copy paper and electronic disk forms. It is essential that the hard copy (paper) version exactly matches the material on disk. Please print out the hard copy from the disk you are sending. Submit three printed copies of the final version with the disk to the journal's editorial office. Save all files on a standard 3.5 inch high-density disk. We prefer to receive disks in Microsoft Word in a PC format, but can translate from most other common word processing programs as well as Macs. Please specify which program you have used. Do not save your files as "text only" or "read only".

Proofs will be sent to authors if there is sufficient time to do so. They should be corrected and returned to the Editor within three days. Major alterations to the text cannot be accepted.

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

Copyright: It is a condition of publication that authors assign copyright or license 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.
