- We allow the use of ibid. and op.cit. in footnotes, as well as abbreviated titles in consecutive references as appropriate;
ibidem (use the abbreviated form ibid., in italics): In the same place. Used in footnotes and bibliographies to refer to the book, chapter, article, or page cited just before.
op. cit. (use in roman/upright form): (Anywhere) in the work cited.
Ibid. refers to the immediately preceding reference; op. cit. refers to the prior reference by the same author.
- Inscriptions generally prefer British spelling, but accepts American or other international standards, as long as it is consistently applied in the submission;
- For titles and headlines we practice strict capitalisation for all titles other than the main title of a book, i.e. only the initial letter of the first word of a journal article, newspaper article, chapter, etc. is capitalised. For books we follow standard capitalisation rules for the main title. Subtitles are capitalised as per our general rule. Note that this also applies to titles of articles published by Inscriptions;
- For technical reasons we ask that all author names are spelled out in full at each line of the References section.
