Author Guidelines

To be accepted for publication in the journal, the submitted manuscript should fit the journal’s scope and policy. We publish research articles, review articles, book reviews, and notes.

For initial submissions, we welcome papers in any format (format-neutral submissions). At this stage, authors are encouraged to upload a single PDF that incorporates the full text, tables, and figures.

The article should not exceed 12 pages. The article should be written in Microsoft Word, font 12 points, 1,5 space between lines of text, all indentions are 1,25 cm.

References are normally cited in the text by placing an author’s name and the year of publication in parentheses with a comma between them e.g., (Acemoglu, 2003: 630). If more than one citation for a particular author is made for the same year, “a”, “b”, “c”, etc. should be added to the year of publication e.g., (Robinson, 2008a). Each literature citation made in the body of the paper must have a corresponding entry in the References at the end of the paper. The References must be ordered alphabetically, without numeration. Each citation must contain page numbers.
