Author Guidelines

  • All submissions must be original pieces and should not have been published or be under review elsewhere.
  • Articles have to be written in German or American English (e.g. organization, center, favor).

  • Standard style: Times New Roman, 12-point, 1.5 space, hyphenless justification
  • Characters: Please stick to a Latin character set as closely as possible.
  • Footnotes: Use footnotes, not endnotes, yet keep footnotes to a minimum. Footnotes are written in 10-point and single space.
  • Headings: Confine to three levels of headings next to the title itself. 
  • Indents: Use indents for block quotations only (more than 40 words).
