The General Editors of the JOURNAL OF SOCIAL SECURITY LAW (J.S.S.L.) welcome inquiries from intending contributors about items that may be suitable for publication. While we are able to accommodate articles across the range 2,000 and 8,000 words, the ideal length would be approximately 4,000-5,000 words. Case Analyses should be between 1,000 and 2,500 words. General Correspondence should be addressed to Neville Harris at the address below. Contributors should note the following points:
- Submission of Articles, Case Analyses or other contributions will be held to imply that they contain original unpublished work and are not being submitted for publication elsewhere. No liability is accepted for loss or damage to materials submitted.
- Manuscripts should be typewritten or word-processed (without handwritten alterations) on one side of the paper only (using A4 paper). The text should be double-spaced with 1.5'' margins on both sides to allow for editorial notes and instructions to printers. The number of words should be stated.
- It would be desirable if Articles used short, useful headings. Footnotes, where used, should be numbered consecutively and be set out at the foot of the relevant pages. Case names should be underlined and punctuation used in standard legal references (e.g.  2 All E.R. 123 SI 1987/1973). In Case Analyses all references should be incorporated in the text. In other matters, e.g. layout, reference may be made to past issues of the J.S.S.L.
- Authors should provide the biographical information in the form in which they wish it to appear in the J.S.S.L. An address, phone number and (where possible) a fax number should be provided for correspondence and proofs.
- Authors will be provided with two complimentary copies of the issue featuring their article.
- The General Editor will acknowledge submissions as quickly as possible. A definite decision on publication will be given within eight weeks, again so far as is possible. Referees' comments will be sought for articles.
- Copyright in all pieces accepted for publication remains with the authors, and the publishers acquire publication rights. If all or any part of any published material is reproduced elsewhere, the author should acknowledge the J.S.S.L. as the original place of publication.
