Submissions must be written in good, clear English language, preferably proof-read by a native English speaker.  For authors who find this difficult we offer an English language polishing service via Charlesworth at, with a 10% discount for IJAM authors, applied at the point of purchase.  Non-UK authors should ignore references to VAT.
