ABBREVIATION

Uncommon abbreviations should be explained, with the name in full in the first instance, followed by the abbreviation in brackets. The abbreviation may then be adopted. Full stops should not be used in abbreviations or contractions. When citing a reference for the purposes of comparison, the journal uses ‘see also’.


DIRECT QUOTATION

As a general rule, direct quotations of three lines or less are embedded within the text in quotation marks. The reference to the author, date and page number appears in the footnote, which appears after the full stop or any other punctuation. A quotation of more than three lines appears as an indented paragraph, and is reduced to font size 10. Similarly, the reference to the author, date and page number appears in the relevant footnote at the bottom of the page.

 

QUOTATION MARKS

In using quotation marks, single quotation marks should be used as first preference. Where a second quote is referred to within the first quote, double quotation marks should indicate this. For example:


‘Although these ASLs are considered as “partial ASLs” because they do not include all normal passage routes, in particular the east/west routes, these definite and certain ASLs cover the north/south routes and are better than having none designated’.3
