Author Guidelines

Manuscript submission

This journal accepts articles and original submissions that have not been published and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors maintain their copyright and are aware of releasing their works under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0). The author must send the article in Word format to the scientific director at the following address: montesquieu@unibo.it.

The review accepts articles in Italian, English, French and Spanish. Any contributions must adhere to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Publication rules section. The contributions will be double-blind peer reviewed.

Once the paper proposal is accepted, authors must send to the editorial team the release form (.doc), filled and signed.

Authors have the opportunity to re-publish the post-print of their essay. Following “Montesquieu.it” policy, authors can be authorized, if previously requested, for the re-publication either of the refereed draft version and of the last editorial version of their essays published in the journal. Regarding this, authors will have to mention, in the new publication site, the bibliographical references of “Montesquieu.it” as the first place of publication.

Publication rules

Each contribution must follow the style sheet instructions and it must include an abstract in English (max. 700 characters), 5 keywords, the JEL classification code (if necessary) together with ‘bio-data’ details (name, e-mail address, affiliation) using the same font and format as for the article.

Style sheet instructions:

  1. Each article must be written using a Word file. It must contain max. 80.000 characters, including spaces.
  2. Use character 12 of Times New Roman for the main part of your text.
  3. Divide your article in titled paragraphs (editors will reserve the faculty to modify titles).

  5. Short quotations (max. 2-3 lines) must be put in inverted commas (e.g. «.....») and followed by their source.
  6. Quotations, which are longer than 2-3 lines, will not be put in inverted commas. They must be preceded and followed by a blank line. Use Times New Roman, character 10.
  7. If you often quote one or more works, which are the subject matters of your dissertation, use the acronym of their titles, except for the first quotation which must refer to the whole title followed by its acronym in round brackets.
