Submission Guidelines


We welcome papers written on all aspects relating to electoral regulation from academics, electoral commission officials, parliamentarians, party officials and others interested in this field.

We welcome submissions of 1,000-5,000 words. Given that these are intended as discussion papers, shorter rather than longer papers would be preferred.

The papers should be written for a general educated audience who may not have specific knowledge of particular areas of electoral regulation.

Working papers should have a short, descriptive title and a concise introduction and conclusion introducing and summarizing the basic argument of the paper.

The author and the author's affiliation should be stated under the title but before the body of text.

Referencing need not be extensive but where required the Chicago style (footnote system) should be followed. You can find information on the Chicago style here http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html.

Submission can be sent to the Editor of the Working Paper Series, Dr. Aaron Martin.
