Journal of Economic Literature: Style Guide
Style Information for Articles
Abstract: We require an abstract of approximately 100 words. This should be a separate file on your diskette and a separate page in your manuscript.
Tables and Figures: Number figures and tables
consecutively (Table 1, Table 2, etc.). Do not number them according to
the section in which they appear. Please do not insert figures and tables
in the text. Instead, in the space immediately after the paragraph in
which the figure or table is first referenced, insert a text tag as follows:
Tables cannot be set broadside. Please format them to be set vertically on the journal page.
If you cite an article that is neither published nor accepted for publication, please make every effort to find an internet link to it, and include the web site address in the reference list, giving the full "http//" link.
Footnotes: Number footnotes in order, corresponding to numbers in the text, and place them at the bottom of the page (rather than as endnotes).
Reference List: Verify references carefully; they must correspond to the citations in text. List alphabetically by author's last name and then by year. See the Sample References for specific information.
