We welcome two types of contributions: article submissions and proposal for special issues.

Submitting a paper

Articles are welcome on two different tracks: open-ended general call and specific call for papers.
Submissions can be made in English and on request in German.

Please read the Guidelines for authors before submitting a paper!


Papers may be submitted in either LaTeX or MS Word format:

  1. Up-to-date LaTeX template available from GitHub (download as ZIP-file)
  2. Legacy MS Word [ZIP] template


A submission is first examined by the editors and then forwarded to at least two members of the editorial board or invited reviewers in a blind peer review process.


Immediate rejection will be decided upon by the editors if the topic or the format does not suit the requirements, regular rejection will be motivated by reviews.


Depending on the reviews articles can be accepted with or without modifications. In the latter case, the authors are expected to keep to the schedule specified by the editors.


The editors can withdraw an article at any time in case of malpractise (from a scientific point of view or in case of copyright infringement).

Proposing a topic for a special issue

Please send us a one-page outline with motivation, relevance, description, name(s) of the guest editor(s) and suggestions for reviewers.
