Layout and Formatting

Template


Please note that all important words in the document title and in headings should have an initial capital letter as should the names of author(s).

1 Document Title

Font Style: Arial Headings Bold

Font Size: 14 Point

Alignment: Centre

2 Author(s) Name(s)

Font Style: Arial Headings

Font Size: 12 Point

Alignment: Centre

The name(s) of the author(s) must be followed by a footnote asterisk*; this footnote asterisk* will be the first in the footnote sequence (before footnote 1) and will contain a note of the institutional affiliation of the author(s) with their full postal and email addresses. When multiple authors are involved, indicate to which author correspondence should be directed.

3 Document Abstract

Font Style: Times New Roman

Font Size: 10 Point

Alignment: Justified Paragraph with 1cm left and 1cm right indent

For items submitted to the Refereed Articles or Working Papers sections, an abstract of between 100 and 150 words is required.

4 Document Headings

Font Style: Arial Headings Bold

Font size: 12 Point

Alignment: Left


  1. Heading Level One

    1. Heading Level Two

      1. Heading Level Three

Heading Level Style: An Arabic numeral followed by a full stop and another Arabic numeral; the Arabic numerals are inserted manually followed by one tab space before the heading text.

The use of headings is encouraged. They should be used as signposts to help the reader (and the writer) identify the different sections of the piece of writing. Headings and their levels should be used to represent the relative importance of the particular section of the writing. Short sections are easier to summarise in an informative heading than long sections. Do not overuse heading levels: most sections are unlikely to require more than three heading levels.



5 Document Body Text

Font Style: Times New Roman

Font Size: 12 Point

Alignment: Justify

Single space the lines with 0 point spacing before and after. Leave a line between paragraphs and do not indent the first word of a new paragraph. Indent quotes of more than three lines in a block and do not use quotation marks. Do not italicise quotes.

6 Footnotes

Font Style: Times New Roman

Font Size: 10 Point

Alignment: Left



Create footnotes using the automatic footnote generator in your word processing program. Single space the lines with 0 point spacing before and after. For citation style advice, see our AGLC Referencing Style Guide Summary http://wwwlib.murdoch.edu.au/find/citation/mucitationbrief.pdf.
