Style Sheet and Guide to Authors

A Multidisciplinary Journal

The Journal of Consciousness Studies is a refereed journal aimed at an educated multidisciplinary readership. Authors should not assume prior knowledge in a subject speciality and should provide background information for their research. The use of technical terms should be avoided or made explicit. Where technical details are essential (for example in laboratory experiments), try and include them in footnotes or appendices, leaving the text accessible to the non-specialist reader. The same principle should also apply to mathematics, unless essential to an argument.

Quotations, Footnotes, References and Bibliographies

Please follow the Harvard referencing system. See our examples page: JCS Referencing
Quotations of more than six lines should be indented. For shorter quotations use single inverted commas. All references should appear in the bibliography. Use square brackets for interpolations; use three dots to indicate the omission of material within a quotation. Original spelling and punctuation should be retained unless otherwise stated.
