Author Guidelines

  1. Submission fees of R500 has been paid, without it, the article will not be considered for review. REFERENCE - 0000 (Paper/Article ID no.) and Surname of Author (e.g. 4507 Bester) - Please send proof of payment to: sajhe@sun.ac.za - without proof we cannot mark your submission as paid. See Bank details
  2. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration and is the author(s) own original work.
  3. The submission file is in a Microsoft Word 2007 or later file format.  (Submissions not conforming to the journal's style will be rejected)
  4. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  5. The text is 1.5-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed in the article text and clearly marked.  The article should be between 5500 and 7500 words in length.  References: The Chicago Manual of Style author-date system is used.  That is, references are cited in the text by the author(s) name(s), the year of publication and the page numbers(s) in brackets, for example, (Apollonia 1973, 370), as a key to the full list of all references that appears at the end of the article.  The list of references should include every work cited in the text.  Ensure that dates, spelling and titles used in the test are accurate and consistent with those listed in the references. 
  6. When citing others' work, always use double quotation marks for the citation, and, if required, use single quotation marks within the citation.  This especially applies to indented quotations.  Turnitin does not recognise indentations with quatation marks, instead, it recognises indented quoted text without quotation marks as previously used work that appears elsewhere (thus - picks this up as plagiarism).
  7. The instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed, and all author details have been removed from the initial review copy.
  8. The article has been professionally edited and a letter from the editor will be attached to it (step 4 of submission process - Uploading Supplementary Files)
