Author Guidelines

To submit a paper online, you must register as an author. For more information on how to register, follow the link.

You may submit a new article from your personal user page. Follow the link for information on how to submit a paper.

Papers should be written in Greek or English. It is assumed that submitted articles have not been published elsewhere and that they are not under consideration for publication by other journals. The authors should state whether they are publishing related articles elsewhere. 

Papers accepted for review are evaluated anonymously by at least two referees. Therefore, along with the full paper (title, text, references) author’s name and address as well as the paper’s title should be submitted separately on a covering page.

Papers should include an abstract of not more than 100 words and fi ve key words, both in Greek and English. Articles should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in length including abstracts and references. Manuscripts will not be returned to the author if rejected.

  • References to publications should be given according to the Harvard system which in the text cites authors and year of publication, e.g. (Esping-Andersen, 1990; Kleinman and Piachaud, 1993).
  • Page number(s) should be given for all direct quotations, e.g. (Ferrera et al., 2002: 230). If there is more than one reference to the same author and year, they should be distinguished by the use of a, b, c etc., added to the year.
  • References should also be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper in a List of References (not Bibliography).
  • Authors are particularly requested to ensure that each text reference appears in the list, and vice versa. References to books should always give the city of publication and publisher as well as author and title details. For example: Scharpf, F. (1999) Governing in Europe: Effective and Democratic? Oxford: Oxford University Press.
  • Reference to journal articles should give volume, issue and page numbers, and the name of the article enclosed in single quotation marks. For example: Atkinson, A.B., Marlier, E. and Nolan, B. (2004) ‘Indicators and Targets for Social Inclusion in the European Union’, Journal of Common Market Studies 42:47-75.
  • References to chapters within multi-authored publications should be listed with the chapter title in single quotation marks followed by the author and title of the publication. For example: Leibfried, S. and Pierson P., (1995) ‘Semisovereign Welfare States: Social Policy in a multitiered Europe’, in: Leibfried S. and Pierson P., (eds), European Social Policy: Between Fragmentation and Integration, p.p. 43-77, Washington D.C.: The Brookings Institution.
  • Book and journal titles should be in italics. Explanatory notes should be kept to a minimum. If it is necessary to use them, they must be numbered consecutively in the text and listed at the end of the paper.

Any acknowledgements should appear at the end of the text.

Papers that do not conform to the aforementioned style will be returned to the authors for revision.

The language editing of texts (either in Greek or in English) is the sole responsibility of the author. Book reviews can also be submitted to the Journal.
