Author Guidelines

Authors should include a 10-line abstract of their text in English, together with the English version of the title. 5-10 key words should also be provided, in English, after the abstract. This applies to reviews, notes, and critical debates as well.

Authors should also submit a short biography to the editorial office, mentioning the institution they are affiliated with, their title and didactic or research degree, their research interests, the disciplines they teach and/or the research projects they have undertaken, their contact details (including e-mail address) and a short list of their main publications. This bio-bibliographical note should not exceed 10 lines and should be sent separately.

Texts should be edited for blind reviewing. For this purpose, authors should write their name on a separate page; this page should contain the name and the institutional affiliation. Authors should not include in the text anything that could reveal their identity.

Texts should be edited in Microsoft Word, using the Times New Roman font, 12 pt size.

Notes will be placed at the bottom of the page (as footnotes), using the Times New Roman font, 10 pt size.

References to author books will be given in the following format: author, title (in italics), the number of the volume (if applicable), edition (if applicable), translator (if applicable), city, publishing house, year, page.

References to texts published in collective volumes will be given in the following format: author, title (normal writings, in inverted commas), in Author (ed.), title (in italics), the number of the volume (if applicable), edition (if applicable), the author of the translation (if applicable), city, publishing house, year, page.

References to articles published in magazines will be given in the following format: author, title (normal writings, in inverted commas), the title of the magazine (in italics), issue number, year, page.

The Reference List will be placed at the end of the text.
