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.

  1. Author Guidelines:
    Manuscripts accepted by the Editors are normally evaluated by at least two anonymous referees. The Editors act on the basis of referral reports, but retain final discretion on the decision to publish an article or review. A manuscript is accepted for consideration on the understanding that its content is original and that it has not been accepted for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts submitted in languages other than English may, where practical, be reviewed in the original language. However, the final decision will be made exclusively on the basis of the English language version. No costs of translation will be borne by ERIS.

    For further clarification on editorial policy and submission of manuscripts, please contact the Managing Editor at

  2. Format of Manuscripts:
    Manuscripts should be in A4 format in double-spacing. Main articles should normally be between 8.000-10.000 words in length, reviews 1.000-1.500 words and review articles between 3.000-4.000 words to include footnotes, endnotes and bibliography.

    Authors should include a short (3-4 lines) biographical statement, and a cover sheet with name, institutional address, contact e-mail address and a telephone number.

    Abstracts of no more than 200 words are required for all submissions, and each paper should have between three and five keywords.

    Authors should prepare two versions of their manuscript. One should be a complete text, while in the second all information identifying the author(s) should be removed to allow it to be sent anonymously to referees.

    Authors are encouraged to use headings within the text for clarity. There should be a clear difference between first-order headings, denoted in all capital lettering, and sub-headings, which should be in the normal variation of capital and lower-case. Headings should not be numbered.

    Authors should use a bare minimum of emphasis in the text. Where necessary, italics should be used rather than single quotations.

    Notes of acknowledgement are permissible; they will be set as the first unnumbered notation designated by an asterisk (*).

    Quotations should retain the wording, spelling and punctuation of the original. Any deviation should be noted, such as with the use of ellipses to identify omissions. Any emphasis added should be noted. Authors should use double quotation marks (“ “) for direct quotes, and should use single quotation marks to denote a quote within a quotation and to denote the title of articles. Authors own translations need to be noted where appropriate. Authors are responsible for the accuracy of quotations and should supply complete, correct references. Where necessary, they must obtain permission to cite material.

    Before submission, authors should check their manuscript carefully for errors.
