Each major series within an archive should have a separate abbreviation. In case the material is in a private collection, the name and location of the collection should be mentioned. If recorded oral materials stored in an audio archive are being used the location of the recordings should be specified. If not, the name and location of the oral informant should be clearly stated if possible.
4. Abbreviations may either be listed early in the notes if few in number. Or at first use, e g. Tamil Nadu State Archives, Madras (hereafter TNSA).
5. Italics: For readability, do not use italics too frequently. The test should be whether the average reader of IESHR is familiar with the word. Thus 'zarmindar' need not be italicised.
