Notes for authors

 

GENERAL

Articles that are submitted must be original, unpublished material and should not be simultaneously under consideration – either in whole or in part – for publication elsewhere.

The journal encourages the submission of articles in English, since this enables authors to present their ideas and work to a broader public. However, articles in other languages – with a special emphasis on the Slovenian language – are also welcome. The abstracts of the articles are always published in the language of the article and in English.

Authors who do not have native or equivalent proficiency in English must prior to submission have the article read by someone with this proficiency. This step ensures that the academic content of your paper is fully understood by journal editors and reviewers. Articles which do not meet these requirements will most likely not be considered for publication.

Manuscripts should be submitted in electronic form and must include three Word documents:

1. Cover page:
A) the title of the article;
B) contact informations: author(s) name(s) and full contact information (institution, authors’ email etc.), for publication in the journal;
C)bibliography: a brief biographical note (a paragraph of 5-10 lines of text) on each author, to be published in the journal.

2. Abstract: an abstract of the article in the language of the article and in English; this should include a brief presentation of the issues discussed, the methodology used, the main findings and the conclusions. Add also 3 – 7 keywords and the title of the paper in the language of the article and in English. The length of the title, the abstract and the key words in one language should not exceed 1,100 characters (including spaces). The Word file should be equivalent to the first page of the Template for manuscript.

3. Article (without the author(s) name):
A) the submitted article, with the title in the language of the article and in English;
B) an abstract of the article in the language of the article and in English;
C)3 – 7 key words the language of the article and in English.

In the Article used tables, maps, graphs and pictures are submitted as separated files (4. step of on-line submittion). They should be in black and white, according to standard modes of computer design.

All submitted manuscripts are subjected to peer-review procedure by at least two reviewers. The review procedure is double blind. Authors may be asked to revise their articles bearing in mind suggestions made by the editors or reviewers. The final decision on publication rests with the editorial board.

Manuscripts should be sent by e-mail (editortd@guest.arnes.si) or via the journal internet site, in Word (.doc) file.

 

FORMAT AND STYLE

The preferred length for articles is between 30,000 and 45,000 characters, including spaces (between approx. 4,500 and 6,500 words). Longer articles may be accepted at the discretion of the editorial board. A limited number of endnotes are permitted, if they are used for explanatory purposes only. They should be indicated serially within the article.

Authors should take into careful consideration also the style and format requirements of the journal, which are presented in the template in more detail. Particular attention should be paid to the formatting of references, single spacing throughout and the inclusion of keywords and abstracts. Articles that do not meet these requirements will be returned for modification before being read and reviewed.

 

REFERENCING STYLE

The Harvard author-date system of referencing must be used for bibliographical references in the text and in the alphabetical list of references at the end of the article. Authors should ensure that all and only those references cited in the text appear in the list of references. General bibliographies should not be provided. Authors must also follow the requirements regarding referencing style and format as presented in the attached table.

Internet references: All internet references should be integrated into the alphabetized list of textual references at the end of the article, following these conventions: they should be listed in alphabetical order of author (if an article in a journal) or the holder of the website (if an organization). Cite the full website address and give the date on which the site was accessed. More detailed information is presented in the attached table.
