We welcome the submission of articles to be considered for publication. In general, articles should not exceed 10,000 words, case notes or comments should be 2000-3000 words.
Initial Manuscript Submission: Papers to be considered for publication should be sent to the Editor, as should all correspondence, books for review and other communications. Submit four copies of the manuscript (including copies of tables and illustrations), together with an electronic copy, to: Professor Ian F Fletcher, Editor, INSOL International Insolvency Review, Faculty of Laws, University College London, Bentham House, Endsleigh Gardens, London WC1H 0EG, UK.
Final Manuscript Submission: If a paper is accepted by the Editor for publication authors must also supply
an electronic copy of the final version. Disks should be PC or Mac formatted; write on the disk the software package used, the name of the author and the name of the journal. We are able to use most word processing packages, but prefer Word. LaTeX files are accepted provided that an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file, created from the source LaTeX files, is also provided.
a Copyright Transfer Agreement with original signature - without this we are unable to accept the submission, and
written permission, if required. If the article contains extracts, including illustrations, from other copyright works (including, for the avoidance of doubt, material from on-line or intranet sources), the Author at the Author’s expense and in the form specified by the Publisher, will obtain from the owners of the respective copyrights, written permission to reproduce those extracts in the article in all territories and editions and in all media or expression of languages. All necessary permission forms must be submitted to the Publisher on delivery of the article.
Submission of a manuscript will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere at the same time. Submitted material will not be returned to the author unless specifically requested.
Illustrations must be submitted in electronic format where possible. Save each figure as a separate file, in TIFF or EPS format preferably, and include the source file. Write on the disk the software package used to create them; we favour dedicated illustration packages over tools such as Excel or Powerpoint.
Manuscript style: The language of the journal is English. All submissions including book reviews must have a title, be printed on one side of the paper, be double-line spaced and have a margin of 3cm all round. Illustrations and tables must be printed on separate sheets, and not be incorporated into the text.
The title page must list the full title, short title and names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full address, including email, telephone and fax, of the author who is to check the proofs.
The author must provide a summary/abstract of the paper in English (not to exceed 250 words).
Cases and statutes, etc should be cited accurately and in the correct format. Please follow the Oxford Standard for the Citation of Legal Authorities, for house style
The Editor reserves the right to make alterations and corrections for grammar and syntax, and in conformity to our house style. All contributions undergo a process of review prior to acceptence for publication, and authors may be asked to make some amendments to their work
Footnotes should be numbered consecutively throughout the text with superscript Arabic numbers.
Illustrations: Supply each illustration on a separate sheet, with the lead author’s name and the figure number, with the top of the figure indicated, on the reverse. Supply original photographs; photocopies or previously printed material will not be used. Line artwork must be high-quality laser output (not photocopies). Tints are not acceptable; lettering must be of a reasonable size that would still be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures. Supply artwork at the intended size for printing.
Copyright: To enable the publisher to disseminate the author’s work to the fullest extent, the author must sign a Copyright Transfer Agreement, transferring copyright in the article from the author to the publisher, and submit the original signed agreement with the article presented for publication. A copy of the agreement to be used (which may be photocopied) can be found in the first issue of each volume of the International Insolvency Review and on the Wiley Online Library website. Copies may also be obtained from the journal editor or publisher.
Further Information: Proofs will be sent to the author for checking. This stage is to be used only to correct errors that may have been introduced during the production process. Prompt return of the corrected proofs, preferably within two days of receipt, will minimise the risk of the paper being held over to a later issue. Free access to the final PDF offprint of your article will be available via author services only.
