Editors Homepage with further Information

Submitting Articles

The journal publishes contributions in English.
Manuscripts submitted to the journal will be subjected to peer review. All manuscripts should be submitted in electronic form both as a Word file and a PDF with tables, graphs and illustrations in black and white submitted separately in JPG or TIF format. Authors are expected to clear copyright permissions for all illustrations, graphs, etc.

The ideal length of a paper is 20–30 pages (c. 8,000–14,000 words). Papers should include a separate list of cited works at the end. Please send us an abstract and a brief academic CV accompanying your submission. For further details, please request the journal’s style sheet.

Submitting Reviews

Besides actively recruiting reviewers at our end, we encourage other scholars to contribute reviews as well. Please contact the editors if you wish to submit a book review, informing us of your academic qualifications, if these are not yet known to the editors. Provided the proposed book meets the journal’s profile, we will procure a review copy of it. Please make sure to provide us with a mailing address. Reviews should not surpass a length of c. 1,500 words.

Publishers who wish to have a book reviewed are invited to send them to Achim Mittag at the address given above. We cannot guarantee that the  books submitted will be reviewed in our journal, but at the very least, their titles will be included in a “List of Received Books”. Having been a characteristic feature of the journal for long, this list will be restored as a regular item of each issue. Note, however, that unsolicited books will not be sent back.
