Notes to contributors

In general, articles should be no longer than 9000-10.000 words.

Include a short abstract up to 200 words, as well as five to seven keywords. All articles should be in Arial, 14 point and double-spaced (Arial 10 point and single-spaced for footnotes)

The journal uses an author/date/page system in footnotes (with fuller references in bibliographies). Footnotes should be used both to cite sources and to make any brief comments not deemed appropriate for the main text.

A bibliography should be placed at the end of the text containing all sources cited in alphabetical and chronological order. Book titles are to be italicised; article titles from journals or edited volumes should be placed in ‘single quotation marks’, while the journal/volume from which it is taken should be listed in italics.
