Working Paper Guidelines

Working Paper Guidelines

The Working Papers are among the most visible deliverables of this Action, and thus hold a specific importance. The following guidelines are supposed to provide a framework for writing and publishing Working Papers.

  • Please use MS Word or LibreOffice Writer built-in styles
  • Use MLA citation style (with footnotes, not in-text)
    • In case you are using a bibliographic manager software (Zotero, Citavi, EndNote, etc), MLA style is usually included in the default installation. In case it is not, most of those apps are using CSL formatting language. Don’t know what a CSL is? It doesn’t matter, but you can find the right MLA style here (download the 6th edition (note) version and import it into your app).
    • The writing of working papers is a good opportunity to participate in our joint bibliography project. So we advise you to use Zotero. If you don’t wish to, please export your bibliography from your bibliographic management software into a format that Zotero can import (most of them will do the trick). If you don’t wish to use that kind of software, please do not forget to add DOIs and ISBNs in your bibliography, as it will ease the process of importing them.

  • All working papers should be submitted with:
    • an abstract (max 500 characters, spaces included),
    • a short narrative biography of the author(s) (max 300 characters, spaces included),
    • up to 10 keywords.
