BRQ SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submissions are expected electronically via e-mail to jmarques01@earthlink.net

Please use MS Word only.
Depending on the submission category, the paper should contain between 1500 and 2500 words (for the Business Oriented Category), or between 3000 and 5000 words (for the Scholarly Category) - see our main page for more info.

Appendices, references, figures and tables should be incorporated at the appropriate locations in the paper. The paper must be singled-spaced, printed at 10 points with 1-inch margins in any Times font. In general, the paper must be the way you want it to look in the publication. Hence tables must be placed where you want them to appear.

Papers should be prepared in English and totally edited before submission to avoid grammatical and typographical errors. Papers must be written in a clear concise manner for ease of reading and interpretation.
