Paper

By submitting an article, the author or group of authors guarantees its originality and authorship. The submission confirms neither the text nor graphics have been published or submitted to another publication. All authors are accountable for their contribution. Authors shall take into account the Authors’ Rights Act (Uradni list RS, No 21/95, 9/01). In principle the ARA allows for the publication of already published graphic material for illustrative purposes, however, the source must be fully quoted. For graphical elements authors should obtain written approval from the source.

Each Submission should include:

  1. Title, Author’s name and surname, e-mail address & physical address
  2. Short biography (as a separate document), 150 word maximum.
  3. 800 word maximum abstract of paper.
  4. Key Words: 5-word/50 character with spaces maximum
  5. 6000 word maximum text body
  6. Bibliographic references
  7. Digital signature confirming the writing’s originality

Formatting

  1. Text should be prepared and submitted as an MS Word file.
  2. Use the template file we have provided.
    Use it for all the documents (abstract, paper, CV brief, short biography).
  3. Use as little design as possible.
  4. Do not use underlining; italic and bold can be used if needed (e.g. in references).
  5. Do not use direct formatting (eg. do not change font size, do not use colors, …).
  6. For formatting use only Word Character and Paragraph styles.
    Find them in the “Styles Pane” or in "Quick styles list" (eg. Normal, Emphasis, Strong, Heading 1–6 ... ).
  7. Titles should follow english capitalization, do not use only capital letters.
  8. Use only automatic footnotes. The footnote number in the text should always be inserted after the punctuation.
  9. Use double quotation marks for quotations (“Like this.”) and single quotation marks only for emphasis (‘like this’).
  10. Punctuation marks eg. comma must always be inserted before the closing quotation mark (“Like this.”)
  11. Footnote reference numbers must always be inserted after the punctuation marks (Like this.4).
  12. Delete all the empty lines (empty line after a paragraph is automatically added).

Graphic Content

All image-based material must be approved for publication by the owner or organization legally entrusted with the content by providing proof of copyright and trademark clearances. Graphic material should be sent separately as a single file containing all images etc. Images should be 300 dpi and minimum 10 cm length (1200 px) on the shorter edge, JPG of TIFF files. Placement of images should be noted within the text body; however, AR may take the initiative to “design” each essay with respect to the edition’s overall graphic design.

Citation and Referencing

AR follows The Chicago Manual of Style method for document formatting and citation. Referencing should be rendered using the Chicago style based on “Notes and Bibliographies” system. It consists of in-text referencing by numbered footnotes (full notes and short notes) together with corresponding entries in the bibliography listing all sources in full at the end of the essay/paper.

The extent of sources should reflect a realistic necessity of the presented paper. Please avoid including sources that are not relevant for the work

Please, follow and use consistently the detailed guidelines for citation and referencing available on the link.
