STYLE SHEET
This style sheet
is
intended as a guide for authors submitting a

to
Indian Journal
of
Public Administration
and
as
an
aid to the
preparation
of
the final copy
of
accepted articles.
Manuscript
Manuscripts should include the name and the institutional
affiliation
of
the author(s).
Manuscripts (only in English) should use British spelling and
typographical conventions.

paragraph should be indented except for the first paragraph.
Notes and References should be listed at the end
of
the main
text.
Manuscripts should be typed in Times New Roman, font size
12,
each page numbered.
A
one-paragraph
abstract
(upper
limit
100
words)
must
accompany the submission.
Punctuation and abbreviations
Single quotation marks should be used
to
enclose actual quotes
from your own text or for technical tenns when they are first
introduced. On subsequent mention
of
technical terms, no
quotation marks should be used. Excessive use
of
quotes should
be avoided.
Double 9uotation marks are used to enclose quotes within text
which is itself quoted.
Latin abbreviations such
as
'i.e.' or 'e.g.' are acceptable only
in expressions within parentheses, as here: 'adjectives which
collocate with fare (e.g. wholesome, simple, country)
...
'
Elsewhere, they should be replaced by their English equivalents,
'that is' or 'for example'. Italic should not be used for such
abbreviation nor for such common Latin expression as
'ad
hoc',
'et
al.,' etc.
Numbers up to
Q.
and vaguely expressed numbers should be
spelled out in words. However, any numbers in a statistical
context, precise numbers, units
of
measurement, and numbers
above l 00 should be stated
in
figures.
