Images and Captions
These are never essential within anitem, but are always welcome. Inparticular, discussions of particularbuildings, sites or landscapes would beassisted by the inclusion of illustrationsas this enables readers to see them.They do not absolutely need to besubmitted at the time of the initialsubmission of the article, although it ispreferable if they are. The omission of acaption is only acceptable if you feel theimpact of the image would be reducedby the provision of written context.All illustrations, photographs, diagrams,maps, etc. should follow the samenumerical sequence and be shown asFigure 1, Figure 2, etc. The source hasto be indicated below.

Referencing, Notes andBibliography
This journal requires the use of Harvardreferences embedded in the main text inthe following format (Harper 1999: 27),and a single bibliography at the end of the article for works that are cited, andonly works that are cited. For books,please try to ensure that there is alwaysa date of publication; the place of publication and the name of thepublisher whenever possible.Said, Edward W. (1978), Orientalism:Western Conceptions of the Orient,London: Penguin. —— (1994), Culture and Imperialism,London: Vintage. Journal articles need to be referred to withthe name of the first author, the year of publication [(nnnn),], the article title [‘abcddefg’,], the full journal title [abcddefg,], theissue number [nn,] – or the volumenumber and issue number together[nn:nn,] – and the range of the pages of thearticle within the journal [pp. nn–nn]. Thenumber of the page from which thereference is actually taken is shown on thepage of the article, as in (Harper 1999: 27).A footnote should not be made specificallyto make a bibliographical reference asfootnotes should only be used to provideexplanations or expansions to the maintext of the article. Publications can bereferred to in footnotes using the Harvardformat –e.g. ‘Smith (1999: 49) says that
’. Do not use ‘(ibid.)’ or ‘(op. cit.)’ as theyare not appropriate for the Harvard system.All quotations must be followed by (inbrackets) the surname of the author, thedate of publication and the page numberit appears on in the edition referred to inthe bibliography. Note that the punctua-tion (comma/colon/full stop) at the endof a quotation should always follow thereference if a quotation is within themain body text, but should be placedbefore the reference if it is an indentedparagraph quotation.Website references are similar to otherreferences. There is no need to decipherany place of publication or a specificpublisher, but the reference must have anauthor, and the author must be referencedHarvard-style within the text. Unlike paperreferences, however, web pages canchange, so there needs to be a date of access as well as the full web reference.
