Author Guidelines

1. General remarks
All papers must be submitted in electronic form. They must also conform to the layouting conventions as laid down in this style sheet outlined in below. Furthermore all papers must confirm that they contain no plagiarised material, that they have not been published before in any citable form, and that they are not under consideration in any other publication at the moment of submission. Failure to conform to any of the above will result in your contribution being rejected

2. Length
As the publications are provided online word count is not of major concern. Given this though, authors should still attempt to be as concise as possible. To this end please give a word and page in the Submission Form.

4. Article Processing Charges
Thanks to the support of the University of Klagenfurt Colloquium: New Philologies does not have any processing fees.

5. Ensuring a Blind Review
If a paper is submitted to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the integrity of the blind peer-review has to be insured. This means to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. The following instructions concern authors:
(1) The authors of the document have deleted their names from the text, with “Author” and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors’ name, article title, etc.
(2) Author identification is also removed from the file’s properties. In Microsoft Word, the author information can be removed in the Properties section (File > Information). Make sure that there is no author information by checking the file properties with right click on the file > Properties > Detail, in Windows File Explorer.
