  • The language and spellings (in English paper) used should be British (UK), with ‘-ise’ variant, e.g., globalisation instead of globalization, labour instead of labor.
  • Non-English and uncommon words and phrases (in English paper) should be italicized. Meaning of non-English words should be given in parenthesis just after the word when it is used for the first time.
  • Spellings of words in quotations should not be changed to British; however, glaring mistakes in spellings can be rectified using (sic.).
