Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a lecture, review, thesis or as a working paper) and is not currently under consideration by another journal. The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the article's publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. It is also the authors' responsibility to ensure that an article emanating from a particular institution is submitted with the approval of the institution if that be necessary, and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.

The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
Proofs will be sent via e-mail as a PDF file and should be returned within 3 days of receipt. Alterations to the text and figures (other than the essential correction of errors) are unacceptable at proof stage and authors may be charged
for excessive alterations. Acrobat Reader will be required in order to read the PDF. This software can be downloaded from the following website: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html. This will enable
the file to be opened, read on screen and printed out in order for any corrections to be added. Authors should therefore supply an e-mail address to which proofs can be e-mailed. If absent, authors should arrange for a colleague to access their e-mail, retrieve the PDF proof and check and return it to the publisher on their behalf.
