Author Guidelines

The mission of the fmi*igf Journal is to be the premier journal on "sharing best practices in managing public sector resources." To accomplish our mission, fmi*igf Journal continually seeks original articles with a focus designed to enable its readers develop successful business strategies. Articles can focus on the practical aspect of business theories and implications for real life business situations. Case studies and best practices are welcome, as are survey findings and analyses. Articles may be particular to a single sector, but findings should be applicable across a range of public sector organizations, as the fmi*igf Journal readership is quite diverse. Reviews of books and other information resources are welcome following a discussion with the editor. So, too, are short opinion pieces on current or controversial topics.

Submissions should be sent to: 


Articles submitted to the fmi*igf Journal should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. Authors submitting articles for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright and will indemnify the publisher against any breach of such warranty. For ease of dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use, papers and contributions become the legal copyright of the publisher unless otherwise agreed. From time to time, fmi*igf Journal may feature previously published articles; however, permission from the legal copyright publisher must be provided to fmi*igf Journal prior to article publication in the fmi*igf Journal.

Manuscript Requirements

Articles should be between 2,000 and 4,000 words in length. Language should be clear and concise and authors should avoid the passive tense. Use active verbs as much as possible to keep the article lively. We encourage figures, charts, tables and diagrams. They may be black and white or in color, numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals with a brief title and labeled axes. Illustrations are also welcome. References to other publications should be complete and in MLA (Modern Language Association) style. They should contain full bibliographical details and journal titles should not be abbreviated. Additionally, a brief professional biography of about 50 words, which includes the organizational affiliation, e-mail address including full contact details, is required for each author.

Final Submission of the Article

Authors should note that proofs are not supplied prior to publication; and that the Editor, fmi*igf Journal reserves the right to edit submitted articles prior to publication; and that such manuscripts will be considered to be the definitive version of the article.
