STYLEGUIDE FOR MANUSCRIPTS

Dacoromania litteraria is an on-line journal that publishes literary history studies in English, French and Romanian. Authors are to submit their papers to the following addresses: adrian.tudurachi@gmail.com;  cosmi_borza@yahoo.com (or the addresses announced in the call for papers).

Authors are free to choose the length of their papers. However, they should fall within the following limits:

  • study: 25000-50000 signs;
  • scientific review: 6000-10000 signs.

The texts must be submitted to the editorial staff in the TNR format, 12-point font size, single line spacing and no particular styles. Articles will contain no mention to allow identification of the author. A separate document will list the author’s name; her/his contact data (the author’s academic degree, institutional affiliation and electronic coordinates); a summary and five keywords in English and Romanian (ideal length is under 4000 characters).

Articles will be read by the editorial board and presented anonymously to the reading committee. The evaluation findings will be communicated to the author in term of two months.

Scientific reviews must remain untitled; instead, they should mention all the coordinates for the reviewed work: author, title, place of publication, publisher, collection, year of publication, number of pages.
