Author Guidelines

The submission process at a glance

The Historical Review / La Revue Historique accepts submissions in English and French.  All articles that fall within the scope of the journal are considered on condition that they are original and that they have been submitted only to The Historical Review / La Revue Historique. Articles must be submitted electronically via the journal's webpage (https://ejournals.epublishing.ekt.gr/index.php/historicalReview/index). Articles are accepted for publication solely on the basis of merit according to the results of a blind peer review process. Revised articles are published in the journal's webpage as soon as editing and layout is over and on condition that they are accompanied by all necessary documentation (e.g. permissions to reproduce images and copyrighted texts). The final form of an article should take into consideration the changes requested by the reviewers and should comply with the formatting standards set by the journal and described below. Articles are published in pdf format. The author is responsible for editing the article to a level acceptable for publication. By submitting an article for publication to The Historical Review / La Revue Historique the author assumes responsibility for adhering to intellectual property rights law, and assures that no indemnity is caused to anyone.

 

Book reviews

Please send books to be reviewed to the Book Review Editor

 

Initial submission

Manuscripts of no more than 15.000 words should be submitted electronically via the journal webpage in Microsoft Word format (images, tables, references included in one file). Submissions should include an abstract of no more than 150 words. The name of the author(s) should not appear anywhere in the document, and references to previous work by the author(s) should be in the third person. To ensure that the subject matter is appropriate for the journal a first screening of the submitted papers is conducted by the editors. Manuscripts that do not conform to the journal guidelines and standards and/or use incorrect language will be rejected. By up-front rejection, we aim to shorten manuscript processing time, and to give authors a chance to submit quickly to a more appropriate journal. In case a manuscript passes first screening, editors will do their best to have it timely reviewed.

 

Online submission guidance

The following fields in your profile are mandatory (papers will not be assigned for review if the mandatory fields are not completed):
1. Name
2. Last Name
3. Email
4. Affiliation (Capacity, Institution, Department. Divide the three with semi-colons (;))
5. ORCID ID This is an international researcher attribute that can be acquired at no cost at www.orcid.org. It is a very useful way to attribute work to authors and to connect information online. Some funders require this
6. Country
If you have already registered, upgrade your profile by choosing the option “author” in the “Roles” field.

Providing information in two languages

First fill in your information in the language that the article is written. Then provide in a second language, if desired. If first language is other than English, English should be the second language. Choose the language from language form dropdown list and submit to define the language. First fill in one language, then in the second and save at the end. Do not save in between the two languages. The process is the same for providing article metadata.
Article submission: from your personal user page as an author, choose to submit a new article.
• Choose the section of the journal for submission (e.g. book reviews, articles etc)
• Choose the main language in which the article is written from the dropdown list
• Agree with the submission preparation checklist
• Attach your paper
• Fill in the article metadata first in the language that the article has been written, including author information for all authors (as described above). The following metadata fields are obligatory
o Title
o Abstract (obligatory in two languages)
o Keywords(obligatory in both languages. Separate keywords with semi-colons (;))
o Language (insert en for English, fr for French)
o References (copy and baste the bibliography of your article in this field. It should be in APA style. This allows the editors to provide direct links to those articles, if they exist online, to help readers of your article directly export bibliographies in various formats, and help track the usage of these references)
We recommend that you fill as many fields as possible in the ‘indexing’ section beyond the obligatory ones above. Indexing helps network your article and make it more visible in the web.

OpenAIRE metada. If your submission is the result of EC funding through Horizon 2020, this field is obligatory to fill with the grant agreement number of your research grant. This will allow for your publication to become visible in the European repository www.openaire.eu, which provides open access to all publications funded by the EC.


Supporting Institutions. We recommend that you fill this field if your article is the result of specific funding, for example by an FP7, Horizon 2020 project, by a private Foundation (by filling in e.g. European Commission or Wellcome Trust).

Revised submission

If a manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be asked to submit the final draft in two months. The final draft should take into consideration all the changes requested; alternatively, the author must analytically explain why he/she has rejected them. No major changes to the text are permitted after the final submission. Artwork and copies of all relevant permissions should be submitted to the journal at this time. Revised manuscript drafts will be forwarded to the final publication stages (i.e. editing, layout) only upon receipt of all necessary documentation and permissions (i.e. images, plans, reproduction permissions), and on condition that the revised article conforms to the journal's guidelines. Authors have the opportunity to examine the proofread copy of their articles and provide their comments on changes within three working days upon notification. In lack of response the article is published according to the changes proposed by the copyeditor. Authors can follow the progress of a manuscript at all publication stages through his/her account with the journal's website.
