Notes to Contributors

1. Accepted Papers
The journal accepts for publication articles, discussion notes and book reviews submitted exclusively to Logos & Episteme and not published, in whole or substantial part, elsewhere. The editors of Logos & Episteme reserve the right to refuse all future papers belonging to the authors who fail to observe this rule.

2. Submission Address
Please submit your manuscripts electronically at: logosandepisteme@yahoo.com. Authors will receive an e-mail confirming the submission. All subsequent correspondence with the authors will be carried via e-mail. When a paper is co-written, only one author should be identified as the corresponding author.

3. Paper Size
The articles should normally not exceed 12000 words in length, including footnotes and references. Articles exceeding 12000 words will be accepted only occasionally and upon a reasonable justification from their authors. The discussion notes must be no longer than 3000 words and the book reviews must not exceed 4000 words, including footnotes and references. The editors reserve the right to ask the authors to shorten their texts when necessary.

4. Manuscript Format
Manuscripts should be formatted in Rich Text Format file (*rtf) or Microsoft Word document (*docx) and must be double-spaced, including quotes and footnotes, in 12 point Times New Roman font. Where manuscripts contain special symbols, characters and diagrams, the authors are advised to also submit their paper in PDF format. Each page must be numbered and footnotes should be numbered consecutively in the main body of the text and appear at footer of page. For all references authors must use the Humanities style, as it is presented in The Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition. Large quotations should be set off clearly, by indenting the left margin of the manuscript or by using a smaller font size. Double quotation marks should be used for direct quotations and single quotation marks should be used for quotations within quotations and for words or phrases used in a special sense.

5. Official Languages
The official languages of the journal are: English, French and German. Authors who submit papers not written in their native language are advised to have the article checked for style and grammar by a native speaker. Articles which are not linguistically acceptable may be rejected.

6. Abstract
All submitted articles must have a short abstract not exceeding 200 words in English and 3 to 6 keywords. The abstract must not contain any undefined abbreviations or unspecified references. Authors are asked to compile their manuscripts in the following order: title; abstract; keywords; main text; appendices (as appropriate); references.

7. Author's CV
A short CV including the author`s affiliation and professional address must be sent in a separate file. All special acknowledgements on behalf of the authors must not appear in the submitted text and should be sent in the separate file. When the manuscript is accepted for publication in the journal, the special acknowledgement will be included in a footnote on the first page of the paper.

8. Review Process
The reason for these requests is that all articles, with the exception of articles from the invited contributors, will be subject to a strict blind-review process. Therefore the authors should avoid in their manuscripts any mention to their previous work or use an impersonal or neutral form when referring to it. The review process is intended to take no more than six months. Authors not receiving any answer during the mentioned period are kindly asked to get in contact with the editors. Processing of papers in languages other than English may take longer. The authors will be notified by the editors via e-mail about the acceptance or rejection of their papers. The editors reserve their right to ask the authors to revise their papers and the right to require reformatting of accepted manuscripts if they do not meet the norms of the journal.

9. Acceptance of the Papers
The editorial committee has the final decision on the acceptance of the papers. Papers accepted will be published, as far as possible, in the order in which they are received and they will appear in the journal in the alphabetical order of their authors.

10. Responsibilities
Authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their own contributions. The opinions expressed in the texts published do not necessarily express the views of the editors. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain written permission for quotations from unpublished material, or for all quotations that exceed the limits provided in the copyright regulations. The papers containing racist and sexist opinions assumed by their authors will be rejected. The presence in texts of sexist or racist terms is accepted only if they occur in quotations or as examples.

11. Checking Proofs
Authors should retain a copy of their paper against which to check proofs. The final proofs will be sent to the corresponding author in PDF format. The author must send an answer within 3 days. Only minor corrections are accepted and should be sent in a separate file as an e-mail attachment.

12. Reviews
Authors who wish to have their books reviewed in the journal should send them at the following address: Institutul de Cercetări Economice şi Sociale „Gh. Zane” Academia Română, Filiala Iaşi, Str. Teodor Codrescu, Nr. 2, 700481, Iaşi, România. The authors of the books are asked to give a valid e-mail address where they will be notified concerning the publishing of a review of their book in our journal. The editors do not guarantee that all the books sent will be reviewed in the journal. The books sent for reviews will not be returned. 

13. Property & Royalties
Articles accepted for publication will become the property of Logos & Episteme and may not be reprinted or translated without the previous notification to the editors. No manuscripts will be returned to their authors. The journal does not pay royalties. Authors of accepted manuscripts will receive free of charge one copy of the issue containing their papers.

14. Permissions
Authors have the right to use their papers in whole and in part for non-commercial purposes. They do not need to ask permission to re-publish their papers but they are kindly asked to inform the Editorial Board of their intention and to provide acknowledgement of the original publication in Logos & Episteme, including the title of the article, the journal name, volume, issue number, page number and year of publication.
