The European Studies Review bi-monthly journal provides a platform for students and recent graduates who have an interest in areas relating to European affairs to express their opinion and publish independent research. The multidisciplinary nature of European Studies means that we accept articles from disciplines relating to European affairs, including but not limited to political science, law, history and economics.
All articles should be between 1,000-2,000 words. This limit excludes footnotes. Bibliographies are not required and thus, are not included in the word limit.
Titles should be no longer than 12 words.
We prefer the use of Chicago Manuel Style for our bi-monthly journal.
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 article to firstname.lastname@example.org, with Journal Article and 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Articles may not be published should concerns arise regarding controversial or defamatory statement or articles which may impact the reputation of European Studies Review.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The final version of the article will not be published without the consent of the writer.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 by the 10th of the publication month.
We encourage you to incorporate all the feedback as quick as possible as we endeavour to ensure all articles are finalised and ready to publish by the 19th of the publishing month. On this date, the Editorial team will review all articles and decide which ones will be published in the edition. You will hear our final decision on your article the following day.
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.
We do not accept articles which have been published elsewhere or have been submitted for university.
If you have any other questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
