Manuscript Style Guidelines

Please adhere to these guidelines when preparing submissions to CEJISS.
Refer to the Chicago Manual of Style for most other matters of usage and citation. (Available online at:

1. Use British English spelling.
2. Use endnotes to cite your sources. For endnotes, always use Arabic numerals (0,1,2...).
3. Use ‘single’ quotation marks for quotations within the text.
4. Use “double quotation marks”— sometimes called “scare quotes”—to alert readers that a term is being used in a non­standard (or slang), ironic or other special sense. Try to avoid overusing this device.
5. All punctuation should appear inside the quotation marks.
6. Dates should be in the form 01 November 1995.
7. When listing three or more items, do not place a comma immediately before the final conjunction (usually and or or). Write France, Italy and Spain—and not France, Italy, and Spain.
8. All pages should be numbered.
9. Research Article manuscripts should not exceed 8000 words. Book Reviews should not exceed 1000 words, and eContributions should not exceed 1000 words. Please provide a word­count with your submission.
10. Check all quotations against their original sources for accuracy. You will be held responsible for bibliographical and scholarly accuracy.
11. Research Article submissions must contain an abstract of no more than 300 words. Authors are urged to write as concisely as possible, but not at the expense of clarity.


In the text, refer to the author simply by their surname (without initials, unless there are two authors with the same name).

The Editorial Process

The Editorial Board (EB) is charged with reading (blindly) incoming contributions, and editing them so that a contribution fits with the standards of CEJISS. After receiving a contribution and the comment sheet from the Associate Editors, members of the EB meticulously examine the text of the contribution to ensure the style and structure of the work is of the highest quality, making all necessary changes in ‘track­change’ format, so that the Editor in Chief may review areas of concern raised by the EB. Upon completion of the editorial process, contributions are forwarded to the Editor in Chief for a final read and decision.

Please note that the review process takes up to 2­3 months.
If you have any questions or require additional information please contact us at: or use the Administration page.
