The European Studies Review Blog aims to provide a space for students and recent graduates to reflect and discuss a wide range of topics related to European affairs.
In order to increase accessibility for our readers, we aim that our blog articles should be no longer than 1,000 words.
Titles should be no longer than 12 words.
Hyperlinks should be used at the relevant point of argument within blog articles. Hyperlinks should preferably link to open access sources rather than sources requiring a paid subscription.
Language and Writing Style
Articles should be written in English. The use of American English is preferred to ensure consistency across articles. The use of quotes in any other language is permitted but requires a direct translation to English for accessible reading.
In order to promote understanding of the topics, we encourage writers to keep their language clear and simple, remembering the broad readership of European Studies Review. We also recommend short paragraphs to achieve this.
Graphs and Charts
We encourage the use of graphs and charts to elaborate on your discussion. Please label your graph or charts and provide the source of the data.
How to Submit
Email your blog article to firstname.lastname@example.org, with Blog Article Submission and the title in the subject line. Articles must be submitted in Microsoft Word Document format.
The Editing Process
Once your article has been submitted, your article will be reviewed by a member of the editorial team. The article will be assessed for grammar, clarity and strength of argument, taking into account the evidence and sources used.
Articles may not be published should concerns arise regarding controversial or defamatory statement or articles which may impact the reputation of European Studies Review.
We strive to ensure our writers get satisfaction from the editing process. Therefore, all writers are provided with feedback on their articles and areas in which they can improve.
The final version of the article will not be published without the consent of the writer.
We aim to ensure this feedback is provided in a timely manner, however delays may occur. If this occurs, do not worry, we will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you are not happy with the feedback provided, you can request to have your article independently reviewed by the Senior Editor. These requests should be sent to email@example.com outlining your problem.
If you have any other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
