Guidelines for contributors
Guidelines for contributors
- Manuscripts will be submitted online at http://ees.elsevier.com/ihe. Manuscripts not fulfilling these author’s guidelines will be automatically rejected. Manuscripts not accepted for publication will not be returned.
- The length of the articles should not exceed 11,000 words including all notes, tables, graphs, maps, appendices and references. Texts should present 1.5 line-spacing, and 12-point font size, with pages being numbered and headings avoided. Any acknowledgements should be introduced in the first footnote, together with any indication that the article has been produced thanks to a research project.
- The manuscript should include a cover sheet providing the name(s) and affiliation(s) of authors, corresponding address, contact telephone and email address. The journal allows authors to suggest two ideal experts for the refereeing of their articles, although this does not imply the journal’s acceptance of such suggestions. This should be followed by an abstract, both in Spanish and English, of up to 150 words, highlighting the objectives of the article and the methodology used, together with its findings, limits and an assessment of the work’s originality. A maximum of four keywords and four classification
codes following the Journal of Economic Literature‘s classifi cation system (also in both languages) must
be included too.
- References should be included in the text, indicating the author’s name, publication date and letter.
The letter, following the publication date, will only be used when two or more works by the same author
published in the same year are cited. A reference list, comprising only the works cited, should be placed
in alphabetical order at the end of the article. References should follow this format: for books, author’s/
authors’ surnames and initials, year of publication, title, (editors, if necessary), publisher and publication
- place; for journal articles, author’s/authors’ surnames and initials, year of publication, title, the name of the journal, volume, issue and pages. If two or more works by the same author or authors published in the same year are mentioned, a letter (a, b, c) will be used to distinguish between them.

- Footnotes should be numbered consecutively throughout the article and indicated in the text by a superscript numeral. Notes should be placed at the end of each page.
