EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF GEOGRAPHY
SUBMISSION OF CONTRIBUTIONS
- Contributions should be sent electronically (All authors must register before login in).
- The authors are asked to attach their file(s) to their e-mail message. They should send attached files in MicroSoft Word Format (DOC files). If the files exceed 1 Mb size, we recommend sending us the files in compressed format (e.g. WinZip). Authors should not forget to send any other data types as separate files (GIF, MPEG, JEPEG, etc).
- For additional guidance on any matters not specifically addressed in the above listed instructions and examples, the authors should consult the Associate Editor (email@example.com).
THE REVIEWING PROCESS
Articles submitted to the journal are subject to the following review procedure:
- Review by the editorial panel in terms of general suitability for the journal.
- Selected articles are then subject to a double blind review process.
- Articles are then accepted, revised or rejected on the basis of the recommendations of reviewers.
- Revised articles are reviewed by the editor, although in some cases they may be referred back to the original reviewer.
In accordance with copyright law, the manuscript must be previously unpublished and not duplicate substantial portions of previously published material. Permission to reproduce copyright material must be obtained by the authors before submission and any acknowledgments should be included in the submission. Acknowledgment of source and copyright should be given in cases where photographs, data and media are reproduced.
The editorial policy is the responsibility of the Editorial Panel, but the Authors’ opinions should be regarded as their own.
ISSUES OF LANGUAGE
The authors are responsible for presenting the article and the abstract in good English. They should ask native speakers or colleagues to check their article in this perspective. In choosing their terminology they should keep in mind their international audience. They should also consider carefully specialised topics and terms to prevent loosing the attention of their audience. Finally, authors are responsible for proof-reading the original article (including the abstract in the other language).
STRUCTURE/FORMAT OF THE ARTICLE
The authors should format the manuscript as follows, starting each section with a new page: (1) title page, (2) abstract, (3) text, (4) acknowledgements, (5) references, (6) notes, (7) tables, (8) figures. We recommend an article size of 3000-5000 words. This includes tables, illustrations, references, etc.
The title should be a maximum of 15 words.
Author(s) and Author(s) affiliation:
The following format is required for author name(s): first name, extra initials and last name. After the name of each author the e-mail address (if available) and the contact address (including the URL of the homepage of their organisation/institution) should be added.
Example: Karl R. Attard [Attard @university.ac.nk], Name of University, School of Sciences and Social Sciences, address. [Web site]
The title, author(s), affiliation(s), and address(es) should be on a separate cover page. All correspondence will be addressed to the first named author, unless otherwise instructed.
Contributions should be preceded by an abstract of 100-150 words. The abstract should summarise the whole article, not just the approach or conclusions.
The authors should provide three to six keywords expressing the nature of the article.
