Instructions for Authors

Content: The International Telecommunications Policy Review publishes original research on the economics and policy of information, telecommunications, and media, focusing on firms, markets, and institutions. Reflecting the increasing diversity of analytical approaches employed in the field of information, telecommunications, and media, and recognizing that policies promoting political, social, economic and cultural objectives may have significant impact on those fields, the International Telecommunications Policy Review encourages submissions reflecting the insights of diverse disciplinary perspectives and research methodologies, both empirical and theoretical.

Blind Review: To facilitate anonymous review, only the article title should appear on the first page of the manuscript. A file with a separate cover page should contain the title, authorship, authors' affiliations, any statements of credit or research support and mailing addresses, phone numbers. Every effort should be made by the authors to see that the manuscript itself contains no clues to their identities.

Permissions: Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work and for obtaining permission from copyright owners to reprint or adapt a table or figure or to reprint a quotation of 500 words or more. Authors should write to original author(s) and publisher to request nonexclusive world rights in all languages to use the material in the article and in future editions. Authors must provide copies of all permissions and credit lines obtained to ITPR.

Regulations: In order to complete the submission process authors will need to confirm that the findings reported in the manuscript are original and have not been published previously and that the manuscript is not being simultaneously submitted elsewhere. If appropriate, authors should also state that they have complied with American Psychological Association ethical standards in the treatment of their samples.

Production Notes: After a manuscript is accepted for publication, files are copyedited and typeset. Authors will be provided page proofs to correct errors and answer editors' queries. Authors may order reprints of their articles only when they return page proofs.
