Manuscripts. The preferred length of scholarly articles published in Englishes in Practice is 7,000 -10,000 words, including references. Authors should follow the De Gruyter Mouton style sheet but with one change: While the standard style sheet stipulates, under 'Special attention', that authors should have their "contribution carefully checked by a native speaker", the editors of Englishes in Practice simply expect authors to submit manuscripts written in an English which is intelligible to a wide international academic audience, but it need not conform to native English norms.
