>Worldviews: Environment, Culture, Religion
>Instructions for Authors
>environmental understandings, perceptions and practices of a wide range of
>different cultures and religious traditions. WORLDVIEWS: ENVIRONMENT,
>CULTURE, RELIGION adopts an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on
>contributions from a range of discipline areas including anthropology,
>environmental studies, geography, philosophy, religious studies, sociology
>and theology. Articles are considered which explore the interaction of
>humans and the natural environment from perspectives that may be either
>within or outside particular religious and cultural traditions.
>Prospective contributions are considered on the understanding that they are
>not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. They should
>be in English and four copies should be provided, typed and double spaced,
>and not more than 6000 words in length. Typescripts will not be returned,
>so the author should retain an additional copy for reference. Authors whose
>work is accepted for publication will be asked to supply an electronic
>version of the article on a 3.5in. disc in IBM or Macintosh format. To
>allow blind refereeing, authors are asked to identify themselves only on
>the title page, which should show their names, full postal addresses, and
>any acknowledgements in the form preferred for publication. A full postal
>address for editorial correspondence must also be given. A summary of
>100-200 words should be provided for the use of abstracting services.
>Footnotes, which will be printed at the end of the article, should be
>numbered consecutively through the text, and presented on a separate sheet
>of paper, typed with double spacing. Bibliographic citations in the text
>or notes should include the author's last name and the title or year of
>publication, and may include a page reference: (Reichel-Dolmatoff 1976:
