Author Guidelines

The articles must be edited with Microsoft Word (or similar, convertible) editor software. Times New Roman (size 12), justified, paper format A4. The manuscript must be no more than 15 pages, including figures, summary and references. In some cases, the Editorial Board may recommend that a given article be expanded or elaborated.

The language must be English.

The title must be short, 20 words maximum.  It must be formatted as follows: font size 16, bold, left-aligned. After an empty line, the author(s) name must appear in font size 13, bold, left-aligned, in the following style: János, Kiss, Thomas George Martens, József, Tóth. Under the author’s name must appear the workplace’s name and address in normal font type, font size 11, left-aligned. If there is more than one author, after the author’s family name must be an index number corresponding to the listed number of that author’s workplace.

Following this should be a summarizing Abstract. The title of the Abstract must be left-aligned, font size 14, in bold capital letters. After an empty line the text must be written in normal font type, size 12. This summarizing Abstract should be no more than 250 words with no paragraphs or listing. Keywords in parentheses should be next, in normal font type (no more than 5 words or phrases).

Chapters’ titles must be left-aligned, font size 14, bold capital letters. The subtitle must be left-aligned, normal bold letters, font size 12, with no numbers. Before and after the titles an empty line should appear; if there’s a subtitle, an empty line must appear before that. The paragraphs should be justified. Highlighted words or sentence parts must be written in italic letters.

The authors are responsible for the content of an article. The editorial board will edit and proofread the articles, and return them to the author for correction if necessary. The corrected manuscript should be sent to the editors as an attachment via e-mail.


Suggested sections for submitted articles

The figures (graphics, pictures, etc) should appear in this section. The author must refer to them in the text, with numbers and words in parentheses and in italic type. If the reference is in the text (for example: …as you can see in Fig.2…), the author can omit the parenthetical citation.
This section should contain all cited works. They must be in alphabetical order (based on author’s family name), without numbering. The author of the article must indicate all of the authors whose works he has employed. After the family name, only the initial of an author’s given name should appear (Kovács, G., Hanks, L.T., Kiss, H.N).

The format of references should be as follows:
for a magazine:
Author(s) (year): English title (if the magazine is not written in English, it must be marked with the starting letter of the language). In: Title of the Magazine (with internationally accepted abbreviation if there is any), year (arabic numeral). Number, the article’s page numbers from-to. p.

for a book:
Author(s) (year): Title (in English). Edition number. Place of publication: Publishing house, Number of pages p.

for a section of a book:
Author(s) (year): Title. Place of publication: Publishing house, Title of the part or chapter of the book used. Number of pages. p.
Kiss, A. (2000): Game management. Kaposvár: Kaposvári Egyetem, A vad. 10-16. p.

for a study in a study volume:
Author(s) of the study (year): Title of the study. In: Author of the study: Title of the Study. Edition. Place of publication: Publishing house. Number of pages (from-to). p.

for an electronic document:
Typically such citations are written as they would be for a print document (see above), but the author must also include the type of media [ONLINE] or [CD-ROM], in case of a book, after the title, in the case of a magazine, after the magazine’s title. Besides that, the author must show the date on which the website was accessed, the exact name of the website and its URL.
Csaba, L. (2007): Átmenet vagy spontán rend(etlenség)? In: Közgazdasági Szemle, 54. 9. 757-773. p. [online]

 We strenuously urge authors to follow these formatting instructions. If there is a Hungarian title, the author must write (In Hung.) after the title. If an author published more than one article in a single year, then after the year each should be marked with a, b, … like: Kiss A. (2007 a).

Within the articles, citations should be given in parentheses with the cited author’s family name and the year of the source’s publication (Kiss, 2005).  If the cited source has two authors, their names should be separated with „and” (Hamilton and Smith, 2006).  In the case of a source with three or more authors, only the primary author’s name should be included, followed by „et al.” (Hamilton et al., 2006).  If the source’s author appears in context, the year of the relevant publication should follow in parentheses […according to Kiss (2006)…].  The year of publication and the parentheses should not be italicized.

CORRESPONDING AUTHOR should include the first author’s or contact person’s postal address, followed by phone and fax number and email address.

Tables, figures, pictures, etc.
The reference numbers for tables, figures, pictures and other non-textual content must be left-aligned, font size 12, in bold text.
Diagrams must be drawn in MSExcel.  Tables should be added with the MSWord table editor.  The figures, due to convertiblilty issues, should not be drawn in MSWord, but rather in Power Point, Corel Draw, AutoCAD, etc.. Pictures should be sent in JPEG format to the editorial board as email attachments.  Source files for diagrams, graphics, and figures should also be sent as separate email attachments.
In the tables and figures only English text may be included.  After an empty line, the reference number should appear as follows: Table 2, Figure 4.  After another empty line, the title should appear.  Immediately under the figure the source should be written along with any explanatory caption.
Equations should also be followed by reference numbers.  Within the text the reference number should be used to indicate the equation.

Guidelines for review articles
The editorial board will accept a limited number of review articles.  If the review is on a relevant subject that has not been addressed in national or international scientific periodicals for the last three years, the board will consider it for publication.  The formatting requirements for a review article are the same as those listed above.

 A review article must contain the following sections:
