Final Copy Requirements

Review the Manuscript

Once your manuscript has been accepted for publication, we will send it to the journal's style editor, which is part of the normal process for manuscripts we intend to publish. The style editor uses the "Track Changes" feature (under Tools in Microsoft Word) to make recommendations.

To revise your manuscript, please log on to Manuscript Central and enter the Author Center. Find your manuscript listed under "Manuscript Decisions." Click Actions: Create a Revision. Your manuscript number will be appended to denote a revision. Using Microsoft Word, you can easily accept or reject changes. First select the sentences containing suggested changes, then click Tools: Track Changes, and follow the directions. Some revision requests from the style editor will require somewhat more work.

The style editor is not an economist, which helps in terms of the journal's goal to make articles clear and compelling to an interdisciplinary and international audience, but which may also occasionally lead to suggested wordings or questions one would not expect from within the discipline. Please consider this as you review your manuscript. Most authors have appreciated the style editor's suggestions, but if they would inappropriately change your meaning, please use your own good judgment about how best, or whether, to incorporate them. The journal's staff has already reviewed the style editor's suggestions and removed any we feel are out of line, so we encourage you to consider the remaining ones seriously.
