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.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.


1. All submitted works (articles, reviews and comments) must be unpublished and must not have been simultaneously submitted to other journals for evaluation. Every article for the sections "Studi" and "Note" must be accompanied by both a brief English abstract and four or five English keywords. A ‘ready for blind peer review’ copy of the file must be sent, together with the original version of the text.

3. The length of Studies (Studi) submissions should not exceed 70,000 characters (11,000 words), including keywords, abstract, spaces and footnotes. The author’s name should immediately follow the title, along with a note containing the author’s email, full address, and academic institution. Both the Studies and Notes must be divided into paragraphs with Arabic numerals and subtitles. All notes must be formatted as footnotes, not endnotes.

Editors can request a consistent reduction of accepted submissions.

3. Studies must include a summary that reflects the divisions of the work in addition to the abstract.

4. Citations should have the following structure:

a) for books:

S.L. Brock, Action and Conduct, T&T Clark, Edinburgh 1998, pp. 95-102.

b) for collaborations of a collective work:

P. Sabuy Sabangu, Cultura e razionalità, la pluralità delle culture e l’interculturalità, in F. Russo (a cura di), Natura, cultura, libertà, Armando, Roma 2010, pp. 39-63.

c) for journal articles:

M. Pakaluk, The Great Question of Practical Truth, and a Diminutive Answer, «Acta Philosophica», I/19 (2010), pp. 145-160.

When a work is cited more than once in an article, it should be written as, S.L. Brock, o.c., p. 171; or, if the title is repeated, S.L. Brock, Action and Conduct, cit., p. 171. It is better to avoid "pub." or "publisher", except in cases where the word is an integral part of a name.

6. Quotations occurring within another quotation should be indicated using a different sign ("text") from the one that defines the text and contains the quote («text»). Words in languages different from that used in the main text should be written in italics, without quotation marks.
