The journal does not charge APCs or submission charges.

Tables

Tables must be self-explanatory and provided with a title. Each table should be presented on separate page outside the main text.

Figures

All drawings, diagrams, graphs and photos are considered as Figures. Each figure should be submitted in a separate file (pdf, jpg, tif or eps files are accepted). Printed figures are usually black-and-white; still, colour images can be published in the electronic version of FCE. Printing of colour images is exceptional and earlier consulting with Editor-in-Chief is necessary.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  3. Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.
  6. If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
