Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, RTF, or WordPerfect document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines, which is found in About the Journal.

Author Guidelines

Interested authors are welcome to contact Editor-in-Chief Péter Marton at or Chairman of the Editorial Board with an abstract outlining their concept in advance. This, however, is not a prerequisite to submitting an article. Full articles should be submitted at and (both), with the subject line „COJOURN article.”


Submission guidelines

- Begin articles with a one-paragraph abstract outlining the concept of the article, including the basic questions it seeks to answer.

- Provide a few „keywords” below the abstract.

- Articles should reference supporting material, matching appropriate academic standards, where warranted.

- Generally we seek brief contributions of 3,000 words. Lengthier pieces can be accomodated only if there are substantial grounds for requiring extra space and if the manuscript concerned is in appropriate shape in terms of writing, grammar and spelling.

- Please provide an author bio in a footnote. Here you need to briefly mention all relevant academic/professional credentials you have.

- Please consider arranging proofreading for your manuscript before submission.

The Editorial Team carefully provides copy-editing of accepted articles but due to our limited existing capacities for this purpose we may be forced to reject submissions if they fall behind appropriate standards in terms of writing, grammar and/or spelling.

Formatting guidelines

- Chapter headings should be in bold.

- Referencing must be via in-text citations in any variant of the Harvard System (in-text references to author name, publication year and page numbers* as well as bibliographical references** at the end of the article under „References”). You may use footnotes primarily to provide additional information and not for the purpose of referencing.

* Example: (Smith, 2008: 52).

**The information required in bibliographical references, where applicable: full author name, year of publication (in brackets), title, date of publication, URL, date of access.

(Please see a sample of references in the present issue.)
