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.
  • Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words, not counting title and abstract; exceptions to this threshold might be accepted depending on the topic dealt with.
    Please make sure:
    • to state on the front page authors’ affiliations and full postage address of the main affiliation;
    • to indicate corresponding author’s e-mail address;
    • to anonymize the manuscript (except for the front page) by eliminating any element that might enable referees to identify the authors.
  • Manuscript should be written in English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of both). Article written in Italian might be accepted if the topic is of particular interest to the Italian-speaking readership. Authors whose first language is not English should ensure that the manuscript is carefully edited, preferably by a native speaker.
    The submission of an article implies that it has not been previously published and that it is not under assessment to be published by another journal.
  • The digital copy of the paper should be submitted preferably in Microsoft Word format (*.doc/*.docx). The text should be in single-column format and the layout should be as simple as possible.
    Tables and figures should be submitted in Microsoft Word format as well, but in extra files.
    Manuscripts can be submitted also in LaTeX. The submission should include the original source (including all style files and figures) and a PDF version of the compiled output.
  • The text must adhere to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
