Author Guidelines

Format of the text

Headings should be in 14 point, bold, Times New Roman, small caps. The text body should be in 12 point, Times New Roman, double line spacing. Please limit footnotes to a bare minimum. These should be consistent with the latest MLA-style, as similarly imposed on in-text references and reference lists. Contributions should be between 5,000 and 6,000 words (references and footnotes included). Use the styles provided here: styles.

Format of bibliography

The bibliography should be listed ‘Works Cited.’ List all entries cited in the text or any other items used to prepare the manuscript in alphabetical order – first by authors, then – in case of multiple entries by the same author – by year of publication. Alphabetize works with no known author by their title. Please follow the MLA-format, including mention of the publication medium. For additional types of references, please visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab.

Format of in-text quotations

For quotations within the text, please use double inverted commas on all occasions, except for a quotation within a quotation. In the latter case single inverted commas should be used. Quotations longer than 40 words should be typed in an indented paragraph format, 10 point, without the use of inverted commas. 

Format of video and audio

Video files are best submitted in .mp4 format (maximum size: 96Mb).  
Audio clips are best submitted in .mp3 format, but we will accept CDs and convert these.
