Submissions

Login or Register to make a submission.

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • 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 between 7,000 and 9,000 words, footnotes excluded; does not count more than 12,000 words with footnotes included; is 1.5-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.

Your article should be longer than 7,000 but not much longer than 9,000 words, excluding footnotes. Including footnotes, the whole text should not count more than 12,000 words. An abstract will be asked during the submission process: please provide a short summary of between 150 and 250 words. 


The use of English is preferable, although we also admit French, Italian, Spanish and German contributions. The style to be followed is the Chicago Manual of Style 17th Edition, Notes-Bibliography System. Images are to be provided by authors, including permissions and high-resolution reproduction. 


If the article has more than one author, please add a supplementary file that specifies each of the author’s contributions to the article (drafting, writing, revising, etc.). Only authors who have made substantial contributions will be accepted. For a definition of academic authorship, we refer to the commonly accepted definition of the ICMJE.
