There is no deadline for the submission of an article – a paper to be considered for publication is welcome any time! – nor are there strict guidelines with respect to the extent.
A “standard” article usually has about 8.000 - 10.000 words and must include a brief (200 words or less) abstract and a short note (50 words or less) with author's full name, title, current affiliation, E-Mail address, and a brief description of recent work.
Spelling and grammar are to follow either American or British convention but consistently throughout the text.
Double inverted commas ( “xx”) should strictly be used for quotations only, meaning that every use of double inverted commas does ask for a detailed reference.
Quotations from non-English source materials must be accompanied by their original in the citation.
Archival citations should be as brief as possible, yet consistent. The identity and location of each archive must be fully spelled out when mentioned for the first time.
A full bibliography must be supplied separately, first (Christian) names to be written out.
Citations (full bibliographical details to be supplied) and notes must be formatted as footnotes and numbered consecutively throughout the text. No author/date method.
