You are invited to submit contributions to the editors.

The normal length of an article is 7,00 words, though longer articles
may be accepted. You should write concisely but not at the expense of
clarity, bearing in mind that the referees report will be based on a
contributions length relative to its content.

An acknowledgement of receipt will normally be sent within seven days.
A publication decision should be made within six weeks of the receipt of
a contribution. Our policy is to ensure rapid publication of accepted
contributions so that their currency is maintained.

It is imperative that all articles are either sent in ascii format by
electronic mail, or on a 5.25/3.5 inch disk in a PC format. Several
word processor formats are acceptable though straight ascii is simplest.
Under extenuating circumstances manually typed articles will be accepted.

Each article must be accompanied by an abstract. Please note that
electronic submissions save the waste of paper.

More detailed notes on guidance for contributors and a style
sheet are available from the publishers on request.
