TASK Quarterly

Author guidelines

Submission of an article to TASK Quarterly is understood to imply that the article is original, unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. All the articles submitted for publication will be reviewed. There are no page charges. The articles should be written in English.

Title page: Title of the article should be concise yet informative. If there are more authors, first their names should be given, followed by full postal addresses, footnote signs being used as necessary.

Abstract: The abstract should be informative, not only indicating the general scope of the article, but also stating the main results and conclusions. The abstract should not exceed 200 words.

Text: The text should be typed with double spacing on one side of the standard size page with wide margins (about 3,5 cm). The other two copies may be double-sided photocopies. Footnotes should be avoided, if required, they should be used only for brief notes which do not fit well into the text. Tables may be included into the text. If table is typed on a separate page its positions in the text should be marked. The desired position of each illustration should also be marked in the typescript.

Equations: Equations should be numbered serially (1), (2), on the right side of the page, but only if reference is made to them in the text.

References: References should be submitted in Vancouver style or in a format suitable to be used with commonly used reference management software (eg. RIS files ) or in the BibTex plain text file.

Vancouver is a numbered referencing style commonly used in medicine and science, and consists of:

  • Citations to someone else's work in the text, indicated by the use of a number
  • A sequentially numbered reference list at the end of the document providing full details of the corresponding in-text references.
  • References are listed in numerical order, and in the same order in which they are cited in text. The reference list appears at the end of the paper.
  • Begin your reference list on a new page and title it 'References'.
  • The reference list should include all and only those references you have cited in the text. (However, do not include unpublished items such as correspondence.)
  • Use Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

Numbering references

Sources are numbered based on the order in which they are cited in the text: the first source you cite is 1, the second 2, and so on.

If the same source is cited again, use the same number to refer to it throughout your paper. This means that the numbers might not appear in consecutive order in your text:

Collins et al. (1) argue that this technique is highly effective. However, another study (2) conducted into the technique has raised doubts about the replicability of these results. Collins et al.’s conclusion that the technique is ready for ‘large-scale application’ (1, p. 15) in medical practice should therefore not be accepted without further investigation.

Figures and figure captions: Illustrations should be suitable for direct reproductions. Figures should be submitted in the in the minimal resolution of 300dpi in jpg or png formats or submitted using vectors scalable graphics (tiff, eps, ps). The lettering, as well as the details, should have proportional dimensions to maintain their legibility after the usual reductions. Original lettering, after the appropriate reduction, should appear at the standard size of about 9 to 11 points. Colour reproduction of illustrations is available to authors free of charge.

Proofs: Authors will receive galley proofs for corrections, which should be returned as soon as possible. All joint communications must indicate the name and address of the authors to whom proofs should be sent.

How to submit: Articles for consideration by the journal can now be submitted electronically without the need to send a hard copy. The preparation of the texts in any common dialect of TeX is strongly recommended. However, the MSWord documents also will be accepted. Figures should be submitted as separate files, preferably in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) or TIFF formats. The text and figure files should be packaged together into one archive and compressed using a common utility such as PKZip, tar + gzip or Stuffit. Please go to the Subbmision tab.
