Instructions to Authors

(1) Papers must be double spaced and written in English.

(2) Four copies of papers submitted for publication should be sent to:

Professor Stephen Martin
International Journal of Industrial Organization
Krannert School of Management
Purdue University
West Lafayette, Indiana 47907-1310

We ask authors to report the title, authors, authors' addresses, keywords, JEL codes, and abstracts to the Editorial Office by e-mail in a format that can be copied at the time of submission.

We encourage submission of manuscripts in pdf format. Manuscripts that are submitted in pdf format need not be submitted in print form.

Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. The Editor does not accept responsibility for damage or loss of papers submitted. Upon acceptance of an article, author(s) will be asked to provide a printed copy of the manuscript and to transfer copyright of the article to the publisher. This transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information.

Manuscripts should be double spaced, with wide margins, and printed on one side of the paper only. All pages should be numbered consecutively. Equations should be numbered. Titles and subtitles should be short. References, tables, and legends for the figures should be printed on separate pages. The legends and titles on tables and figures must be sufficiently descriptive such that they are understandable without reference to the text. The dimensions of figure axes and the body of tables must be clearly labelled in English.

The first page of the manuscript should contain the following information: (i) the title; (ii) the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the author(s); (iii) an abstract of not more than 100 words. A footnote on the same sheet should give the name, address, and telephone and fax numbers of the corresponding author [as well as an e-mail address].

The first page of the manuscript should also contain at least one classification code according to the Classification System for Journal Articles as used by the Journal of Economic Literature; in addition, up to five key words should be supplied.

Instructions for submissions, including detailed formatting information for accepted manuscripts, may also be found at the back of each issue of the Journal as well as at Elsevier North Holland's IJIO web site .
