Information for Authors

Manuscript

      The manuscript should be formatted for A4 paper and must be in MS Word. Please do not submit PDF files. Text should be in Times New Roman 12 point, justified, and use 1 spacing throughout, including references [10 point]. Texts should ideally range maximum 4000 words.
      If you need to use non-Latin fonts (e.g. Greek), please use the standard fonts, that are included in MS Word.

Formatting

       Formatting should be kept to an absolute minimum. Italicize non-English words and words used for emphasis (e.g. the author). Single inverted commas should be used for emphasizing new and unusual words/expressions and/or usage (e.g. ‘philosophy’).
      Do not use bold or underline. Lists should be incorporated into the main text and not set apart.

Informative Abstract, Keywords, and Biographical Note

       Immediately following the title, your contribution should start with an abstract (not exceeding 300 words). Three to six keywords should be listed after the abstract. Abstract and keywords should be in Times New Roman 11 point, justified. Authors are asked to supply a short biographical note.

In-text citations:

      Citation should be in-text and parenthetical, and only be made to sources found in a works cited list that is to be attached to the end of the article. If the passage to which the citation is attached does not clearly indicate the source’s authorship, include it in the parenthetical citation; when authorship is clearly indicated, the date and page are sufficient. Direct quotations should be indicated by double quotation marks. For example: We think that “in order to explain the basis of the case for the equality of animals, it will be helpful to start with an examination of the case for the equality of women” (Singer 1975, 1).
      This position is what Singer emphasized as the idea of “the rights of animals” (1975, 1).
      No comma is used to separate the author’s name and the date, only to separate date and page number(s). Separate additional references with a semi-colon, and where several works by a given author were published in the same year they should be distinguished alphabetically (1975a; 1975b).

Works Cited List:

      The works cited list is strictly construed as a list of works you have cited, and not as an extensive bibliography. The author(s)’s name: placing the last name first and separating the last name and first name with a comma; for example, Peter Singer becomes Singer, Peter. The year of publication is listed after the author(s)' name. Titles of books and journals are italicized. Titles of articles, chapters, poems, etc. are placed in quotation marks. Location and publisher are listed after. In a bibliography, all major elements are separated by periods.
