Instructions to authors



Guidelines for submitting manuscripts to AUB–Istorie:

1. General information

We accept articles submitted in electronic format by e-mail attachment at the editorial office:

Any submission must be the original work of the author that has not been published previously, as a whole or in part, either in print or electronically, is not concurrently under consideration by another journal or is not soon to be so published. These restrictions apply to the substance as well as to the exact wording of the manuscript. If the manuscript is accepted, the editors expect that its appearance in AUB–Istorie will precede republication of the essay, or any significant part thereof, in another work.


2. Preparation of manuscripts

The articles should have a minimum length of 35,000 characters and should ideally not exceed 100,000 characters, including footnotes. An abstract of about 800–1,200 characters and up to five keywords should also be provided.

The target length for book reviews is between 10,000 and 25,000 characters, including footnotes.

Articles submitted for consideration should give references presented as footnotes at the bottom of each page using Arabic numerals. AUB–Istorie generally observes the conventions recommended by the Chicago Manual of Style, notes and bibliography system ( Since the Journal does not include a final bibliographic list, the first reference to a work or source must provide full information. After the first mention, references should take a shortened form, which includes only the last name of the author and the short title of the book (containing the keyword or words from the main title, so as to make the reference easily recognisable and not to be confused with any other work), followed by the page number of the reference.

Footnote references to books or other sources in non-western-European languages (i.e.English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese) should give the original title (transliterated as necessary), followed by an English translation of the title in square brackets.

The Journal is flexible in relation to the punctuation and spelling, provided that UK or US styles are used consistently throughout the article.


3. File formats

Prepare your manuscript, including graphs, tables, maps, using a word processing program and save it as a .doc, .docx or .rtf file. When naming your files, please use simple filenames and avoid special characters.

It is strongly recommended to observe the given paper format: format A4 Portrait, margins Left/Right 3 cm, Top/Bottom 3 cm, empty Header/Footer 1.5 cm, font Times New Roman, size 12, alignment Justify, Line Spacing Single.

Illustrations may also be included where they add materially, up to a maximum of twelve. Prepare them using applications capable of generating high-resolution files (1200 dpi. for line drawings and 300 dpi. for colour and half-tone artwork). Do not embed them in the word processing file, but attach them as independent files. Images submitted in colour will be reproduced in colour online, and in black and white in the print journal. Authors are responsible for obtaining any necessary permissions from the copyright holders. Evidence in writing that such permissions have been secured from the rights-holder must be made available to the editorial office.

It is also the author’s responsibility to include acknowledgements as stipulated by the particular institutions.


4. Copyright

It is a condition of publication in the Journal that authors grant an exclusive licence to AUB–Istorie. This ensures that requests from third parties to reproduce articles are handled efficiently and consistently and will also allow the article to be as widely disseminated as possible. Authors may use their own material in other publications provided that the Journal is acknowledged as the original place of publication.
