Original contributions. As a rule, only original contributions are
accepted. Submission of a ma-nuscript implies that it has not been
previously pub-lished and that it is not under review elsewhere.
Language. The preferred language of publica-tion is English. Authors not
writing in their mother-tongue are asked to have their manuscripts checked
with respect to language and style.

Length of contributions. The suggested length of articles and review
articles is 10-20 pages. Contri-butions to discussions (remarks and
replies) should be limited to a maximum of four pages.

Submission of manuscripts. Authors are request-ed to send a double-spaced
hard copy of any ma-nuscript submitted for publication. Please ensure that
you retain a copy for yourself. The text should be written on one side of
the paper only, with gene-rous left margins, and with double-spacing
throug-hout, including footnotes and references. Manus-cripts should have a
separate title page with the author's name and full mailing address.
Whenever possible, the text should also be submitted on a diskette

required for the use of mate-rial owned by others.

Referee system. The journal uses a referee sys-tem in order to ensure a
high standard. The anony-mous reviewers will only read copies of the
contri-butions without any identification of the author. While they may
give suggestions for improve-ments, the reviewers are not obliged to
specify the motivations for their decision to recommend or not to recommend
publication in each case.

Proofs. Authors will receive one copy of the first proof, which, duly
corrected, should be re-turn-ed within the specified time. Changes in the
origin-al manuscript must be avoided.

Offprints. 25 offprints of each contribution will be supplied free of
charge. Authors of articles (including comprehensive review articles) will
also receive a free copy of the issue in which their ar-ticle appears.
Additional offprints are available at cost and must be ordered in advance.
