Initial submissions should be abstracts only. The editors invite contributions which react to the topic/s suggested in the respective call for papers. Early stage research might be suggested for the section “Entering the Field.” These submissions should be likewise topically related to to the CfP, but the main argument may be less developed than in the case of the papers for the main section. The editors will select abstracts, and the authors will then receive an invitation for the submission of a full paper. Authors who are invited to submit a full paper will receive further information on the journal’s guidelines (citation, formatting, etc.). The full papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed and the authors will receive the reviewers’ feedback for a final revision of their paper. Our review form will be filled in by the reviewers; in addition, comments may be added to the paper itself. As indicated in the form, the reviewers may assess the submission with Accept (no revision required) Accept after minor revisions (to be specified in the form), Support publication but ensure major revisions (specified in the form) or Reject paper for reasons specified in the peer review form. Submissions will be reviewed by members of our editorial board and by researchers with a particular expertise in the respective topic of a journal issue.

The initial abstracts should be 300 words in length. Authors are asked to submit a short biographical note indicating their institutional affiliation. Invited full paper submissions should be 6.000-8.000 words in length for the main section. Submissions to “Entering the Field” should be between 2.000-3000 words.
