Preliminary notes - style

Date16 August 2019
Published date16 August 2019
Since this journal will be published by Juta and Company (Pty) Ltd, we
have resolved to adopt, with only minor variations, the referencing
style of contributions in the SALJ. Juta and Company (Pty) Ltd
publish the SALJ. By doing this, we will hopefully ensure that there
is consistency for both the contributors as well as the academic and
publishing editors of the journal, as well as a degree of familiarity
with the style for both parties.
The name of the journal should be referred to either in full, as the
Journal of Corporate and Commercial Law & Practice, or abbreviated as
JCCL&P. A few basic guidelines are included below, and if there are
any problems, please feel free either to contact me, the co-managing
editor, Dr Herbert Kawadza ( or to
consult a recent edition of the SALJ. Don’t feel too worried about
the stylistic aspects, as I, the co-managing editor and the publishing
editors will be checking the technicalities.
The editors welcome the submission of manuscripts in English for
consideration for publication, and provided that the topic under
discussion would be of interest to the academic and professional
readership of the Journal.
The JCCL&P accepts manuscripts of three types. These are:
1. Articles. Articles are the feature pieces of each part of the journal.
These provide a detailed, if not seminal, analysis of the topic
under discussion. Articles should not exceed 12000 words (this
number excludes references). Special permission will have to be
sought from the editors to consider pieces longer than this, and
this permission will not lightly be granted. All references in
articles must be footnoted. Each article must be accompanied
by an abstract of not more than 200 words. The abstract should
summarise rather than introduce the argument of the article,
and should contain appropriate key words.
