Submission Guidelines & Style Sheet for Manuscripts

Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts of essays for publication should be from 5 000 to 10 000 words (special cases may be discussed in advance with the editors). For the sake of the peer review process, manuscript should contain no information that would identify the author. A separate title page should contain:
–  author’s name and affiliation(s);
–  a short biographical note (up to 100 words);
–  email for correspondence;
–  an abstract (no longer than 250 words);
–  up to 6 keywords;
–  acknowledgements (e.g. grants used for the research).

The biographical note should include the year of birth, academic affiliation, milestones of academic career and significant publications.

Each submission is reviewed by 3 in-house editors. In the case of a positive review by at least 2 editors it is passed on to an external expert for further review and recommendation for publication. Authors will be notified on the acceptance or rejection of their submission within 90 days of receipt of their manuscript. Authors may only submit papers which have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Kronos aims to publish articles within 12 months of acceptance.

By submitting a manuscript, the author agrees that after publication the copyright for the article is transferred to the publisher, Fundacja Augusta hr. Cieszkowskiego. Essays may be subsequently reprinted by the authors, providing that the previous publication in Kronos is properly acknowledged.

Upon acceptance, a PDF of the article proofs will be sent to authors by e-mail to check carefully for factual and typographic errors. Authors are responsible for checking these proofs and are strongly urged to make use of the Comment & Markup tool bar to note their corrections directly on the proofs. At this stage in the production process only minor corrections are allowed. Alterations to the original manuscript at this stage will result in considerable delay in publication and, therefore, are not accepted.

Manuscripts should be submitted in a doc, docx or odt format to the address redakcja@kronos.org.pl.

Style Sheet for Manuscripts

For issues not addressed in this style sheet, please refer to The Chicago Manual of Style.

Language
Manuscripts should be submitted in English. Spelling, whether British or American, must be consistent.

Title
Kronos uses large font for the title of the papers. Therefore, whenever possible, do not use long titles.

Epigraph
If necessary, an epigraph may be included. Make it right-justified, italicized, with source identified in brackets underneath.

Font
Please use the Times New Roman font. Do not use bold font or underlining in the main text. Italics may be used for highlighting essential information or foreign words.

Non-Roman Script (Main Text)
Use italic to insert foreign words. Do not transliterate non-Latin characters in the main text – use the original language characters. All Greek words should therefore appear in Greek characters without italics.

Non-Roman Script (Title and Citations)
The title and the citations can not contain non-Latin characters. Contrary to the main text, please transliterate all non-Latin characters appearing in the title and the citations. This does not apply to the quotations, but to the citations sensu stricto i.e. the titles of the texts being referred to.

Dashes
Use en-dash with spaces to introduce phrases or subsentences, e.g.:

A flock of sparrows – some of them juveniles – alighted and sang.

Use regular dash without spaces to indicate spans, e.g.:

The Civil War (1861-1865).

Quotations and quotation marks
Simple quotation: “[…]”
Quotation inside another quotation: “[…] ‘[…]’ […]”, e.g.: “Like her mentor from Messkirch, she suffered profoundly from ‘polis envy’—a tendency to view modern political life as a precipitous fall from the glories of a highly mythologized Periclean heyday.”
Use (…) to indicate ellipses in quotations. Please use the ellipsis character (…), not three dots (...).
If any insertions are made within quotations, they must be included within [ ].
If the quotation is less than 4 lines long, it can be given in the text. Otherwise it should be given in a separate paragraph and indicated by indentation.

Footnotes
All notes should be placed as footnotes, not endnotes. Use footnotes to add relevant comments about discussed material which for reasons of clarity cannot be integrated into the main text.
