EDITORIAL PRINCIPLES 

Papers must be written in English and cannot be submitted elsewhere – the authors are responsible for obtaining permission to publish any material under copyright. The text should begin with an abstract of up to 100 words, followed by five keywords which should describe the article’s main arguments and conclusions. Manuscript length should be between 20,000 and 30,000 characters (including the main text, footnotes, and spaces), and should be typed on A4 paper, in 12-point Times New Roman font, with ample margins on all sides. The paper’s title, an author’s academic degree, the author’s name and her/his institutional affiliation should be written down at the top of the first page (do not use headnotes). All titles (and other words) in non-Roman alphabets must be transliterated (everywhere in the manuscript). An English translation of other language titles should be provided in square brackets after the title. Footnotes at the bottom of the text page are obligatory, and they should be typed in 10-point Times New Roman font and single spaced.
