Notice for contributors to NJRS
Manuscripts are evaluated by the editors and other referees.
Prepare copy as follows:
1. Send manuscript (no more than 8000 words) by e-mail (attachment) to one of the editors. Type the manuscript
double-spaced (text, quoted material, notes, extracts, and references).
2. Make a cover page giving authorship, title, institutional affiliation (address) and e-mail address.
3. Only articles in English are accepted. The manuscript must be proofread and adapted to an English-speaking audience by a consultant whose native language is English.

5. Include a list of key words used in the article. Examples are: Religion, gender, ethnicity.
6. Each table/figure should be numbered.
7. Draw figures on your computer or scan them into the text. Send copies with the manuscript.
8. Format of references in text: All references to monographs, articles, and statistical sources are to be identified at an appropriate point in the text by last name of author, year of publication, and pagination where appropriate, all within parentheses. Footnotes are to be used only for substantive observations, and not for purpose of citation. Footnotes are placed at the end of the article before references. Do not use «ibid.», «op.cit.», or «loc.cit.»; specify subsequent citations of the same source in the same way as the first citation. Avoid abbreviations except «ed.» for editor.
- If an author’s name is in the text, follow it with year in parentheses: «Winter (1984:32) points out that …» If an author’s name is not in the text, insert at an appropriate point the last name, year of publication and pagination in parenthesis: «... some have claimed (Winter 1984:32) that...»
- Pagination (without «p.» or «pp.») follows year of publication, separated by colon: «some have claimed (Winther 1984:32) that…» When recommending further reading: (see Douglas and Isherwood 1979).
- If there is one author: (Bittner 1965).
- If there is one author and several publications, distinguish them by the use of comma between each year of publication: (Giddens 1976, 1981). If there is more than one reference to the same author and year, distinguish them by the use of letters (a, b,...) attached to year of publication, in text and in reference appendix: (Giddens 1976a, 1976b).
- With dual authorship and same publication, give both last names: (Glaser og Strauss 1977). For more than two authors, use: «et al.»: (Bourdieu et al. 1991). For institutional authorship, supply minimum identification from the beginning of the complete citation: «... immigration data (Statistics Norway 2004) reveal…»
- Enclose a series of references within a single pair of parentheses and separate by semi-colons: (Bittner 1965; Fine 1984; Lemert 1979).
- If one author is quoted by another author: (Peirce, quoted by Eco 1979a:69).
