After having completed registration, please log in and proceeed as follows:

  • Choose the section of the journal for submission (e.g. articles, book reviews, etc.).
  • Agree with the submission preparation checklist.
  • Upload your paper.
  • Insert article metadata including author information for all authors (as described in the user registration guide).

The following metadata fields are mandatory:

  • Title.
  • Abstract.
  • Keywords [separate keywords with semi-colons (;)].
  • Language (insert “en” for English).
  • References. Copy and paste the references list of your article; arrange it according the Chicago Manual of Style and separate references by a blank line. This will allow the editors to provide direct links to the items you refer to and facilitates cross-referencing.
  • We recommend that you fill as many fields as possible in the ‘indexing’ section beyond the obligatory ones above; detailed indexing boosts the accessibility of your article.

OpenAIRE metadata:

If your submission is the result of EC funding through Horizon 2020, this field is obligatory to fill with the grant agreement number of your research grant. This will allow for your publication to become visible in the European repository www.openaire.eu, which provides open access to all publications funded by the EC.

Supporting Institutions: We recommend that you fill this field if your article is the result of specific funding, for example by an FP7, Horizon 2020 project, by a private Foundation (by filling in e.g. European Commission or Welcome Trust)
