Author Guidelines

Please keep your text simple —if you use software to format your manuscript and customize the way it looks, we must spend time paring your manuscript down to its basic elements. Please see as guidelines (style and bibliography only) the issues have already been published.

Here are a few suggestions to ensure your electronic manuscript and printout will be ready to edit:
1. Your manuscript should be single-spaced throughout, including notes.
2. Do not use the space bar to achieve tabs or to align text.
3. Do not insert an additional hard return to create extra space between paragraphs.
3. Do not use the automatic hyphenation feature.
4. Use the same typeface throughout the manuscript.
5. Use your software’s built-in endnotes feature.  The number size and style, placement of notes, and conversion of endnotes to footnotes and vice versa will be performed by the typesetter.  If you do not use your word processor’s note feature, use superscript to indicate note numbers in text.
6. Do not assign “styles” to achieve different formats for subheads, block quotes, and the like.  The default or “normal” style should be the only one in your manuscript.

For the citation style please refer to the Chicago Manual of Style:

Article and case study: max. 50.000 characters spaces included + max. 10.000 characters spaces includes for footnotes

Articles and case studies: max. 50000 characters (spaces included); max. 10000 characters (spaces included)

Editorial guidelines will be sent by the Editory Advisor to the authors selected
