Humanicus
academic journal of humanities, social sciences and philosophy

Instructions for contributors

Please refer to the latest issue for the format rules. Works should be sent in a .doc format (MS Word) as an attachment. Hard-copied submissions are not accepted. The essay should be sent to editor@humanicus.org.

Every essay should have a short summary (not longer than 300 words), located on the front page, with the name of the author and his academic degree(s).

The scope of the work can vary from subject to subject. We recommend to our contributors, however, that they should stick to an approximate number of 10 to 25 author-type pages – 1.5 lines spacing. Reviews should be kept under five pages.

The essay should be formatted in the following way:
Font Times New Roman or Arial, size 12
Paper format A4 (for contributors from the USA or Canada: please do not use the LETTER format!)
Spacing 1.5

Quoting/citing: Do not use the Chicago style. Instead, the Harvard method is encouraged:

see: www.worldcat.org

Please use footnotes rather than endnotes.

At the address www.worldcat.org, you can find several methods of citing.

At the address www.mhra.org.uk/Publications/Books/StyleGuide/download.shtml, you can found the MHRA Guidebook, in which almost every technical instance that regards essay writing can be found.

Though we completely understand that matter, in science, is more important than form, please keep the essay consistent with itself, e.g. use one method of citing throughout the essay and make the essay as clear and accessible for reading/reviewing as possible.
