Instructions for authors

Please 'save as' the FORMATTING TEMPLATE MS Word document and use it as the basis for your paper. The template outlines all of the required formatting and citation information, as well as being set up to reflect it. The formatting template for SAHANZ2017 can be downloaded from here.

Your ABSTRACT should be less than 300 words (in addition to the paper word limit). The abstract will be printed both separately to the paper within the book of abstracts, and at the beginning of the paper on the CD of proceedings. Please give consideration both to how the abstract reads in isolation and to how the abstract and paper read together, when printed one after the other.

The target LENGTH OF YOUR PAPER should be approximately 4,500 words, including endnotes.

QUOTES longer than three lines should be ‘blocked’ by indenting them by 1cm on both margins. IMAGES: Images are to be embedded in the text. Maximum of one image or one composite per page. Maximum of 6 images in total. Images to a resolution of at least 300 dpi. All images must have copyright permissions, to be arranged by the author(s).

The REFERENCES AND CITATION system for used will be endnotes rather than footnotes. Endnotes should be limited to citations where possible. Use the footnote function in Word and set it to ‘endnotes’, with Arabic numbering from 1. Do not use bibliographic software such as Endnote to format your citations. Endnote will leave in control characters which could make the layout difficult. Observe the endnote guidelines as illustrated in the formatting template.

Please refer to the formatting template for further instructions on formatting the items above.

The MAXIMUM FILE SIZE must not exceed 10mb.

For additional style information, please refer to the Fabrications style guide, found here. Please note that these instructions override the Fabrications style guide.
