Information For Authors

Submissions should be made electronically through this website. Please, contact the editors per email first as technical issues prevent self-registration. We will promptly provide you with one.

Please read this guidelines carefully when preparing your manuscript to avoid unnecessary delays to process your submission.

We encourage submitting short articles of about 6000 words with new ideas to develop, work in progress, or reflections. Nonetheless, we will happily accept longer and shorter texts if they could be of interest for our readers. We accept manuscripts in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. We can consider submissions in other Romance languages.


Title page

The title page should contain the information below in the given order:

  • Title

  • Full author name(s)

  • Affiliation(s)

  • Corresponding author’s email address


Please include an Abstract of no more than 250 words summarising the article with a clear heading ‘Abstract’ to make it easily identifiable from the start of the main text.

Acknowledgements (optional)
Any acknowledgements must be included in the first note to the title.

Any citation style is acceptable as long as it is used consistently through the text and provides sufficient bibliographical information.

Language & Text

Spelling and Usage
Please consistently follow an accepted standard for academic texts in the language of your submission.

The font used should be commonly available and in an easily readable size. This may be changed during the typesetting process.

Underlined text should be avoided whenever possible.

Bold or italicised text to emphasise a point are permitted, although should be restricted to minimal occurrences to maximise their efficiency.

Quotation marks
In Spanish, the order guillemets → double → single quotes (« ” ’ ) is preferred. However, we also accept double quoted texts. Quotes in other languages should not be italicised.

Quotations of four or more lines must be placed into a separate paragraph with additional indentation.

Figures & Tables

The author must have the legal rights to publish the figure. They should be in a high resolution and be accompanied by a concise descriptive caption. During the edition they may be moved to fit the typesetting requirements. The source of the image should be included, along with any relevant copyright information and a statement of authorisation (if needed).

Tables must be created using a word processor's table function, not tabbed text.
