RULES - PAGE SET UP - FORMAT OF THE ARTICLE

 

Rules:
Decisions regarding whether submissions are to be published are made by the editors in consultation with an Editorial Board. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by the board. Any references that identify the author in the text will be deleted from submitted manuscripts for review purposes. The identity of the members of the Editorial Board assessing the articles will be kept confidential. Save for exceptional cases and at the discretion of the editors, articles submitted for publication must be unpublished works, and shall not have been simultaneously submitted to other journals. In normal circumstances, we will not accept unsolicited book reviews; however, you may ask the editors whether your reviewing a particular book would be acceptable. All contributions should be submitted to the editors in 1 copy to the e-mail address Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots. È necessario abilitare JavaScript per vederlo., together with the corresponding illustrations (graphs, tables, photographs, etc.). Editors will contact contributors to let them know whether the article is accepted, rejected, or under consideration.

  • The original is to be presented in the following order: title, name(s) and surname(s) of the author(s), affiliation of the author(s), abstract, text, acknowledgements, references, and appendices.
  • Abstracts should be 250-300 words. Articles should normally be 3,000-5,000 words (including abstract, footnotes, references and appendices). Reviews are usually between 1000 and 2000 words.
  • Following final submissions articles are submitted to the publisher for copy-editing, after which a first set of proofs is made - without illustrations.
    After the initial proof stage, approximately one month after final copy is submitted to the publisher, the issue is laid out with illustrations.

All manuscripts of the final version of the article must be word-processed in Garamond font, double spaced throughout on B5 paper (176 mm x 250 mm) justified, with the following set margins:
