Text of the article (Times New Roman 12, single spaced, justified)

Structure of the text: The text of the article should be structured as follows: short introduction, presentation of methodology and main theses, discussion (as the main part of the article) and conclusion(s).

If section headings and subheadings are used, their hierarchy of importance should be clear and consistent. A hierarchy of headings and subheadings should not normally exceed three levels. Example:

1. Introduction
2. Discussing Minority Issues
2.1 Defining Minority
2.2 National and Ethnic Minorities
2.2.1 National Minorities in Slovenia

Paragraphs: Paragraphs should be separated by one line and should not be indented. Example:

Three issues of the journal are published every year, usually in April, September and December.

Articles that are submitted must be original, unpublished material an should not be simultaneously under consideration – either in whole or in part – for publication elsewhere.

Quotations: Substantial quotations of forty or more words should form an indented paragraph, single spaced, without quotation marks and in smaller font size (font size 11). The omission of matter within a quoted text should be indicated by /…/, changes of cited
text with [].

Example 1 (less than 40 words, in text):
Thus, ʺ[if] we wish to understand what is happening ʼin the periphery>’, we must begin by looking at what is happening /…/ in the advanced capitalist world“ (Lipietz 1987, 29-30).

Example 2: substantial quotation (more than 40 words, paragraph):
Sociocultural and geographical variations within a language are signaling matters that are of great importance to those who use them. Varieties serve valuable group identity functions for their speakers; they express interests that are closely linked to matters of self-respect and other psychological attributes (Corson 1993, 102).

Abbreviations and technical terms: must normally be explained in the text when first mentioned. The phrase ›percent‹ should always be used in textual matter, not ›percent‹ or ›%‹. The latter should generally be used only in tables.

Numbers: use dot with decimals and comma between thousands and millions(e.g. 2,967 people were resettled; 25.7 was their average age).
For exact money amounts use digits and currency marker in front (e.g. €45.65), for rounded and big amounts use digits and words (e.g. 125 euros, €15 million). For spans of numbers use solo digits (e.g. pages: 56–74; years: 1864-1899, 1998-2008).

Tables: These must be properly titled and numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text. The sources for the data in the table must be listed under the table and in the list of references at the end of the article.
Font: body of the table – Times New Roman, font size 11; the title of the table and sources – Times New Roman, font size 12, title capitalization rule. Any possible comments to the table should be kept to the minimum, marked with an asterisk (*) or superscript letters (a, b, c) and explained under the listing of sources (font size 11).
