Instructions for Contributors (download word pdf)


Manuscripts

Contributions in English, French, German, or in a Slav language will be considered for publication. An abstract of about 10 to 20 lines must be added to each paper – in Russian for papers in English, French or German (‘резюмe’), in English for contributions in a Slav language (‘summary’). Contributions are to be submitted as Word for Windows-files. Authors are requested to deliver a copy, either on a CD-R or a floppy disk or as an e-mail attachment. All pages are to be numbered consecutively. Any headers or footers other than the page numbering are not allowed. The paper used for submissions should be standard size: A4, one-sided, with regular margins (2,54 cm / 1 inch spacing at top, bottom, left and right); the main text should be in 14 point type. Abstract, footnotes and Literature cited should be in 12 point type, both with single spacing. Authors are requested to use Times New Roman for both Latin and Cyrillic. If other fonts are used, e.g. for Greek or Old Slavonic, they are to be delivered together with the contribution.

A separate page should be added, containing: (1) the title of the contribution, (2) the author’s name, (3) the author’s institutional affiliation, (4) a full address and e-mail address (5) an abbreviated title not exceeding 40 characters, including spaces.


Lay-out (download word pdf)

Three interlinear spaces should  precede the title.  The title should be in bold-faced capitals and should be centered, followed by single interlinear spacing, and the author’s first name, (patronymic) and surname, in full. The surname should be in small capitals. The author’s name should be followed by his or her institutional affiliation, in 12 point type. There should be two interlinear spaces between the title and the ensuing text. Section titles should be italicized. Section and subsection titles are to be preceded by two, resp. one interlinear space(s) and followed by one interlinear space. Authors are requested not to mark more than two levels in their paper (e.g. 2. and 2.1., but not 2.1.1.). Large paragraphs should be divided by an interlinear space; subdivisions are to be marked by indentation (standard tab, 1,27 cm / 0,5 inch). It is also required that nothing in the main text be marked by using bold-face type or underlining.

Quotations, References

Quotations should be incorporated within the text by quotation marks (double inverted commas). If a quotation contains a further quotation, the latter should be in single inverted commas. Quotations of more than three lines should be separated from the main text by blank lines, in 12 point type, without quotation marks. Additions or omissions in a quotation are to be marked by using square brackets, e.g. [sic] or […].

Authors are free to choose between two systems of reference:

(a) bibliographical references in the main text, possibly supplemented by explanatory footnotes (please do not use endnotes), that is, the author’s name, the year of publication and the pages referred to, in round brackets:

... Name (year: pages referred to)                                          
or
... (Name year: pages referred to)

A list of Literature cited should by added (cf. infra).

(b) bibliographical references, as well as additional explanations in the footnotes (please do not use endnotes), either with full bibliographic reference if mentioned for the first time, or with abbreviated titles. In the latter case a list of Literature cited should be added. Authors’ names are to be put in small capitals, titles in italics (monograph) or between double inverted comma’s (article). Please do not include the publisher or publishing company in your reference.

X. (initial of first name) LAST NAME, Title of monograph. Place of publication Year of publication: pages referred to.
X. (initial of first name) LAST NAME, “Title of article”, Title of journal (Year of publication): pages referred to.
X. (initial of first name) LAST NAME, “Title of article, lemma, ...”, Title of reference work, anthology,... . Place of publication Year of publication: pages referred to.

Or abbreviated (if already mentioned or if a list of Literature cited is added):

LAST NAME, Abbreviated title of monograph: pages referred to.     
LAST NAME, Abbreviated title of article, lemma,…: pages referred to.

 


Literature cited

All works referred to should be included under the header Literature cited / Библиография (bold-face, small capitals), without enumeration or indentation. They are to be listed in alphabetical order by authors’ names (and in chronological order in case of several publications by one and the same author). If the article is written in Latin script, the titles in Latin script should be listed before those in Cyrillic script. If it is written in Cyrillic script the reverse order of titles should be used.

Authors’ names should be in small capitals, titles in italics (monograph, journal) or between double inverted comma’s (article, lemma). The language of a certain publication should be respected when mentioning the place of publication (e.g. for a Russian article Москва / Moskva and not Moscow, or Санкт-Петербург / Sankt-Peterburg and not Saint-Pétersbourg). Authors are requested to respect this lay-out:

LAST NAME, X. (initial of first name), Title of monograph. Place of publication Year of publication.   
LAST NAME, X. (initial of first name), “Title of article”, Title of journal (Year of publication): pages.
LAST NAME X. (initial of first name), “Title of article, lemma, ...”, Title of reference work, anthology,... . Place of publication Year of publication: pages.

The list is to be added on a separate page. 

 


Transliteration

Authors are required to use as little transliteration as possible. The use of Cyrillic in quotes and bibliographical references is preferred. If, however, transliteration is used, the author may choose one of the current systems (ISO-standard, the French or the English system of transliteration), provided that it is applied coherently. For transliteration tables, see the following word-file or pdf-file.
