Each table should be numbered and cited in sequence using Arabic numerals (i.e. Table 1, 2, 3 etc.). Tables should have a title (above the table) summarizing the entire table. Legends may be detailed but must be concise. Tables should always be cited in the manuscript text in consecutive numerical order.

Large datasets or tables too wide for a portrait page can be uploaded separately as additional files. Tabular data provided as additional files can be uploaded as an Excel spreadsheet (.xlsx/xls).

Smaller tables considered to be integral to the manuscript can be pasted into the end of the document text file. These will be typeset and displayed in the final published form of the article. Such tables should be formatted using the 'Table object' in a word processing program to ensure that columns of data are kept aligned when the file is sent electronically for review.  This will not always be the case if columns are generated by simply using tabs to separate text. Columns and rows of data should be made visibly distinct by ensuring that the borders of each cell display as black lines. Color and shading may be used and table sections may be highlighted to identify headers/sub headers.

It is the responsibility of the author(s) to obtain permission from the copyright holder to reproduce figures or tables previously published.



Currently, JHEOR only accepts manuscripts written in English. There is no explicit limit on the length of articles submitted, but authors are encouraged to be concise.


JHEOR will not edit submitted manuscripts for style or language, but reviewers may advise rejection of a manuscript if it is compromised by grammatical errors. Authors are advised to write clearly and simply, and have their article reviewed by colleagues prior to submission. In-house copy-editing by JHEOR will be minimal. Non-native speakers of English may elect use of outside copy-editing services.


The abstract is one of the most important parts of a manuscript and should be given extra consideration by the authors. The abstract should not exceed 350 words. Please minimize the use of abbreviations and do not cite references in the abstract.
