Information for Authors

Editor: Krige Siebrits ([protected email address] )

Once your paper has been accepted for publication in The Stellenbosch Working Paper Series, we need to process it and upload it to our website. This document spells out the technical requirements for authors.

We will add a standardized title page to your document, containing the title, author names, working paper number, date, keywords, JEL codes and our address and the logos. The title page also contains an optional organizational designation, e.g. “RESEARCH ON SOCIO-ECONOMIC POLICY (ReSEP) http://resep.sun.ac.za”.

Immediately following the title page will be the abstract page, which should be the first page of the document you send to us. Your abstract page should include the following:

  • The paper’s title
  • The author’s names
  • The abstract. Please do not use any paragraphing, bullet points, etc. - just an unbroken text paragraph. We recommend that the abstract not exceed 350 words.
  • Detailed affiliation information (including postal address and email adress). This may be given for one corresponding author or for each author, as per your preference.
  • Additional affiliation information, e.g. ReSEP, including logos etc.
  • Relevant disclaimers, funding acknowledgements, etc.

The abstract page does not need to repeat keywords and JEL Codes, since these will appear on the title page. If space remains on the abstract page, you can either keep it blank or start the paper’s text. We strongly recommend using A4 page size in your document (the title page will be A4, and it looks better if the rest of the document is the same).

When your document is ready, please convert it to PDF format, do a final check that the layout, page numbers (if used) and e.g. math symbols came out well and email it to us (use both email addresses above). Please include the following information in plain text (i.e. not as an attachment) in your email:

  • The paper’s title. Do not not capitalize every word.
  • Author names and affiliations, one per line and using the following format:
    • Last name; first names; email; workplace name; url (optional)
    • For example, “Van der Berg; Servaas; svdb@sun.ac.za; Department of Economics, Stellenbosch University”
  • The abstract
  • Keywords (comma separated)
  • JEL Codes (comma separated)
  • The optional organizational designation (e.g. ReSEP) on the title page (if required)


Thank you for making our jobs a little easier by following these specifications. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improving the process.
