Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  • The submission file is in LibreOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

Author Guidelines

  1. During the submission process, the following information should be included:

    1. title of the contribution;

    2. complete name of the author;

    3. academic institution;

    4. e-mail address, that will be published in the article;

    5. a short abstract (less than 150 words), English and in the article language

    6. keywords (four to six), both in English and in the article language

  2. The length of the contribution should not exceed 70,000 characters (10,000 words), including keywords, abstract, spaces and footnotes. The texts must be divided into paragraphs with Arabic numerals and subtitles.

  3. In order to emphasize text, only italics should be used. Never use bold, underline or small caps. Non-standard elements (tables, figures) should be uploaded also separately.

  4. Quotations occurring within another quotation should be indicated using a different mark from the one that defines the text and contains the quote, according to the article language custom. Quoted material more than three lines long should be displayed as an indented blockquote (without quotation marks). Words in languages different from that used in the main text should be written in italics, without quotation marks.

  5. Do not include any formatting style, except heading styles, body text, footnotes, and indented block quotes, if necessary.

  6. Use typographic quality quotation marks or apostrophe.

  7. Greek texts should be written using unicode encoding (utf-8).

  8. Bibliographic references should be included in footnotes, not in a “References” section, and should use «Acta Philosophica» style (Zotero users can download the style from
    Books: S.L. Brock, Action and Conduct, T&T Clark, Edinburgh 1998, pp. 95-102.
    Collaborations in a collective work: Paulin Sabuy Sabangu, Cultura e razionalità, la pluralità delle culture e l’interculturalità, in F. Russo (a cura di), Natura, cultura, libertà, Armando, Roma 2010, pp. 39-63.
    Journal articles: M. Pakaluk, The Great Question of Practical Truth, and a Diminutive Answer, «Acta Philosophica», 19 (2010), pp. 145-160.

  9. When a work is cited more than once in an article, it should be written as, S.L. Brock, o.c., p. 171; or, if the title is repeated, S.L. Brock, Action and Conduct, cit., p. 171. It is better to avoid “pub.” or “publisher”, except in cases where the word is an integral part of a name.
