Author Guidelines

We accept manuscripts in Slovenian, English, French, and German. Submissions must be original works that have not been previously published and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Authors should provide the manuscript in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx), preferably in Times New Roman font, with 1.5 line spacing. Each manuscript should include an abstract summarising the main points in no more than 150 words, in both the language of the manuscript and in English, accompanied by up to seven keywords in both languages. Authors are required to provide their institutional affiliation(s), email address, and ORCID number (if available).

Manuscripts should be no more than 10,000 words, including the notes and the references list. Clearly marked subheadings should be used to section the manuscripts; they should not be numbered. Titles of subsections, if used, should be italicised. The manuscript title and subheadings should follow headline-style capitalisation. Use single line spacing to denote paragraph breaks instead of indenting. Quotations exceeding four lines should be separated from the main text with paragraph breaks before and after and should be fully indented on the left margin. The titles of books, journals, and foreign words (e.g. a priori, epoché, élan vital, Umwelt, etc.) should be italicised.

Citation style

Manuscripts should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, specifically the Notes and Bibliography style. For guidance, refer to the Chicago Manual of Style. When citing journal articles, include a DOI number, if available.

Reference list

Bibliographic details should be provided in a separate alphabetical list at the end of the manuscript. The reference list should contain only entries that have been explicitly cited in the notes of the manuscript.


Do not embed images within the manuscript. Instead, indicate where they should be placed in the final version. Images should be provided separately in .jpg format, with a resolution of at least 300 dpi.

British/American spelling and the Oxford (or serial) comma

British or American spelling is acceptable, but the text must be internally consistent. Furthermore, consistent use of the S or Z form of words such as organise/organize, summarize/summarise, etc., is required. A comma follows e.g. and i.e. in American English, but not in British English. Furthermore, the journal uses the Oxford (or serial) comma. The Oxford comma is used after the penultimate item in a list of three or more items, i.e. before “and” or “or” (e.g. an Italian painter, sculptor, and architect).


Articles will undergo external peer review. By submitting a manuscript, authors agree to the publication terms listed under “Copyright Notice” on the journal's website. Proofs will be forwarded to authors for review. Please correct and return them to the Editor promptly. Alterations other than corrections of typographical errors will not be accepted.
