Instructions for authors

Image
 
Authors are expected to submit original material, not previously published in any form, and to refrain from simultaneously offering their manuscripts for review to other journals.

1. General instructions
Manuscripts submitted to the journal should abide by the following guidelines:

A) Format and copy-editing norms

Manuscript submissions must be sent in Word files attached to an e-mail sent to resmilitaris@online.fr.

Page size: A4 or US letter. Type face and size: Times New Roman, 12 pt.

Article length should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words, including abstract (200-300 words), keywords (max. 10), notes, bibliography and author's/authors' institutional affiliation(s).

Footnotes, consecutively numbered, type face Times New Roman, size 10 pt., are strongly recommended.

The main body of text should be double-spaced, with one-inch-wide margins on all sides. Footnotes are single-spaced.

Articles should not be formatted beyond a clear separation of paragraphs and coherent indication of intermediate titles and subtitles. Main intermediate titles shall use bold type size 15; intermediate subtitles use bold type size 13. Titles are numbered only if clarity so requires.

Bibliographic references should be placed at the end of the article, in alphabetical order. However, this only applies if they number more than 5: if such is not the case, they should appear in the footnotes. They should conform to the models supplied by the following examples :

       Schelling, Thomas C., The Strategy of Conflict, New York, Oxford University Press, 1960.
     Schelling, Thomas C. & Morton Halperin, Strategy and Arms Control, New York, Twentieth Century Fund, 1961.
         Daalder, Ivo & Jan Lodal, “The Logic of Zero”, Foreign Affairs, vol. 87, n° 6, November/December 2008, pp. 80-95.

References to books or articles accepted for publication, but as yet unpublished, shall be included with the mention “forthcoming”. “Unpublished data” or “Personal communication” shall be specified as necessary.

The URL address of Web pages must also be listed in the bibliography, including the date of consultation.

Quotation norms :
 
  • Short quotations in the body of the text: italics between double inverted commas (“ ”), followed by author's name, date of publication, as the case may be page number, between brackets: (Schelling, 1960: p. 120 or pp. 120-121). The same indication between brackets of author's name and year of publication shall apply to a reference in passing without direct quotation.
  • Longer quotations (more than 3 lines): start a new paragraph with wider margins, quote without italics or inverted commas, followed by author's name, date of publication, page number between brackets: (Schelling, 1960: p. 75 or pp. 75-76), or in a footnote without brackets.
  • Note: If there are references to several books or articles published the same year by the same author, (a), (b), (c), etc., should be added to the date without a space. Example: (Aron, 1976b).
  • Short quotations from interviews: italics between double inverted commas (“ ”) in the main body of the article, plus footnote indicating the source.
  • Longer quotations from interviews: start a new paragraph with wider margins on both sides, quote without italics or inverted commas, plus footnote indicating the source.
  • Quotations within quotations should use single inverted commas (‘ ').
  • If the quotation in the body of the text ends a sentence or part of it, the full stop or comma should come after the closing inverted comma. Example:
    These authors called the reliance on nuclear weapons for deterrence purposes in the post-Cold War context “increasingly hazardous and decreasingly effective”.

Tables, figures and illustrations (either Word or JPEG) should be placed in the body of the text (unless they prove unwieldy or are of general value, in which case their proper place is at the end of the text, above bibliographic references). The text must explicitly refer to the illustrations. Its title should come above the table or illustration, while credit or source, and (if necessary) legend come immediately below it.

B) General guidelines relative to contents

Articles should meet the following expectations :

Introduction

The subject dealt with in the article must be stated in the form of a research problem. A central hypothesis is formulated, together with the author's chosen methodological options and theoretical perspective. A description of the type, range, and method of selection of the data examined is supplied, as is an outline or “road map” of the developments to follow.

Conclusion

The article's concluding remarks should at a minimum summarize the main points raised in the discussion, and answer the research question stated in the introduction.

2. Particular copy-editing norms

A) Book reviews

Unless a longer contribution is justifiable, book reviews should be no less than 1,000 and no more than 2,500 words in length. Reviews should consist of both a presentation cum analysis of contents and a critical appraisal of the book considered. Authors are free to separate or combine those two aspects.

B) Junior authors' research notes

Research notes should range from 3,500 to 8,500 words in length. They consist of either the summary of a short (under- or post-graduate) thesis, or analysis of a particular issue studied in it.

N.B. In both cases, author's institutional affiliation, format, type face and size (and for research notes, abstract, keywords, footnotes and bibliography) shall conform to the instructions detailed in part 1.A above.
