set: Author Guidelines

Use past copies of set as your main guide. No footnotes - use a notes section at the end. Avoid tables, use simple graphs and diagrams. Sharp photographs are acceptable. set is aimed at an audience of teachers so unexplained jargon is out. An immediate style with concrete examples; simple prose; and school or classroom application is aimed at. Preliminary consultation with an editor does not guarantee publication but is advisable.


Nearly all items are based on the A4 module (300 mm x 210 mm) which is the most economical size.

4 page A4One fold only, one page for illustration3000-3500 words
6 page A4Two folds, one page for illustrations4500-5000 words
1 page A4One side research brief, little or no illustration500-600 words

set: Notes to Contributors

  1. Manuscripts should be typed with double spacing throughout on one side of paper with reasonable margins (all round).
  2. Authors should consult articles in current numbers of set on general matters of style, e.g. conventions in capitalising title and main section headings, sub-section headings, indentation of paragraphs, form of references, etc.
  3. Do not underline any words in the text unless they are to be printed as italics.
  4. Avoid tables, set is not an academic journal and therefore requires a more informal writing style. Complex tables (and figures) are often a barrier to easy readability. set's major audience is teachers, and they prefer an immediate, straightforward document with school or classroom application.
  5. Avoid footnotes. If it is absolutely necessary to have a footnote indicate with an asterisk.
  6. The typescript submitted should be in the form in which the author wishes the paper to appear. Preliminary consultation with an editor about the suitability of an article does not necessarily guarantee publication of the article. Authors should retain a copy of the original manuscript for their own reference.
  7. While articles should not normally exceed 3000-3500 words, longer articles may be accepted in special circumstances and by prior arrangement with an editor.
  8. Manuscripts may be submitted on IBM compatible computer disks in ASCII but authors are urged to supply a paper copy as well.
