Notes for Contributors Preparation of Manuscripts: Three copies must be submitted to the Editor. Manuscripts should be typewritten on one side only, with double spacing and ample margins. Each page of the manuscript should be numbered. The first page should contain the title of the article, the name and affiliation or address of each author, and a self-contained abstract in English of not more than 150 words. Each page after the first should have at the top a short title of not more than 35 letters. Submission of Manuscripts: A letter of submission should accompany each manuscript, and should include the name and address of the author designated to receive proofs and correspondence. If a manuscript has been published previously, or is being considered for publication elsewhere, the letter of submission should make that clear. General Conventions of Style, including References: The standard format is title, author(s), affiliation, abstract, article, notes, references. For general conventions of presentation, see our sister journal Applied Linguistics, from which the following examples have been adapted. For references within the article: Widdowson (1979:13) or (Widdowson 1979:13) as appropriate. For references listed together at the end: Gove, P. 1961. 'Subject Orientation Within the Definition.' Georgetown University Monograph Series on Language and Linguistics 14: 95-107. Harrmann, R. R. K. (ed.), 1979. Dictionaries and their Users. Exeter: University of Exeter. Stein, G. 1985. 'Word Formation in Modern English Dictionaries' in R. F. Ilson (ed.), ELT Documents 120: Dictionaries, Lexicography and Language Learning.

Explorations in Applied Linguistics. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Illustrations: Drawings, tables, graphs, and diagrams should if possible be submitted in a form ready for the printer. Each page of computer printout should be reduced to the same page size as the rest of the manuscript. Photographs should be glossy prints of good quality. Each illustration should bear the name of the author (s), the short title of the article, and a Figure or Table Number: this information should appear on the back of the illustrations. Copyright: It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors assign copyright to Oxford University Press. This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently and will also allow the articles to be disseminated as widely as possible. In assigning copyright, authors may use their own material in other publications provided that the Journal is acknowledged as the original place of publication, and Oxford University Press is notified in writing and in advance. Offprints: Twenty-five offprints of each article, and one copy of the issue containing it, will be supplied free of charge. Reviewers will receive one copy of the issue containing their reviews.
