Submission Preparation Checklist

✎ The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).

✎ The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.

✎ The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

✎ The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines below.

✎ All co-authors (if any) have approved the submission for publication.

✎ Tacit or explicit permission for publication has been given by the responsible authorities of the institutions where the research was carried out.

Author Guidelines

Format requirements

Authors should write their name, position, affiliation, and contact information (including e-mail address) on the first page.

Abstract

All submissions must be accompanied by an abstract (max. 200 words) in English.

Keywords

5-10 keywords should be provided in English, after the abstract. This applies to book reviews as well.

Text

The manuscript cannot be longer than 7000 words.
The manuscript should be typed and single-spaced in A4 format, Times New Roman style 12, in black-and-white.
Emphasizing italics are not to be used excessively. Bold type should not be used anywhere in the article.

In-text citations

Any source information that you provide in-text must correspond to the source information on the References page. The author's last name, year and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your References page.

Multiple citations: To cite multiple sources in the same parenthetical reference, separate the citations by a semi-colon. Quoted material, translations and page references must be exact.

For short quotations enclose the quotation within double quotation marks. The extended quotations (40+ words) should be displayed with left indentation.

Sample reference for single-author books:
Citation in the text: (Nagel 1979, 67)

Sample reference for journal articles:

Endnotes

The manuscripts must include references and/or endnotes, not footnotes. All cited authors must be included in references and/or endnotes. Notes are always endnotes. Short references should be included in the text of articles and not put in endnotes. Use the endnotes as bibliographical notes, which refer to other publications your readers may consult or as explanatory notes (content notes), which refers to brief additional information that might be too digressive for the main text.
