Mediterranean Human Rights Review Style Sheet

 

Articles submitted to the Journal should be original and must not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. The journal retains the ownership of any articles it publishes. Manuscripts should be submitted for review in duplicate, using A4 paper, 1.5 spaced and should not exceed 8,000 words in length (including notes). The word-count should be shown at the top of the manuscript. Articles should be submitted in electronic format in Microsoft Word for Windows (PC) format using font Times New Roman 12. Articles should be written in English or French.

Typescripts should conform to the Journal Style outlined below:

1. Abstracts & Biographical Information. Manuscripts should include an abstract in English and not longer than 100 words. Four or five lines of biographical information should also be included.

2. Page Format. All pages should be numbered consecutively. There should be an empty line before each new paragraph, the first line of which should be indented by 0.5cm from the margin on the left. Words or phrases that the author means to emphasize should be in italics. Headings should be in bold and subheadings in italics. Both headings and sub-headings should be numbered consecutively.

3. Quotations. Long quotations should be separated from the text of the article by leaving an empty line before and after. The text of the quotation should be in font Times New Roman 10, single-spaced, and indented by 0.5cm from the margin on each side. Short quotations should be incorporated in the text within inverted commas.

4. Footnotes. Marginal comments and bibliographical references in the manuscript, including references with comments and case references, should take the form of footnotes. These should be consecutively indicated throughout the article by raised numerals. The text of each note should be indented by 0.5cm from the number on the left. The initial references to a book or article in the footnotes should follow the same style as indicated in point 5 (below), with the sole difference that the author’s forename or initials should precede the surname in the case of footnotes. Subsequent references should use ibid. and op.cit. where appropriate.

5. Bibliography. A list of references should appear at the end of the manuscript. It should contain all the works referred to in the text, listed alphabetically by the author’s surname, single-spaced and with a hanging indent of 0.5cm. The bibliography should use this format:

i) BOOK: Should give the author’s surname, the forename or initials, the date of publication in brackets, the title of the book in italics, the place of publication and the publisher.

Example: Cohen, Stanley (2001) States of Denial. Cambridge, UK: Polity Press.

ii) ARTICLE IN JOURNAL OR PERIODICAL: Should give the author’s surname, the forename or initials, the date of publication in brackets, the title of the article in inverted commas, the title of the journal in italics, the number of the volume and issue, and the page numbers.

Example: O’Barr, William (1991) “Discourse and Power in an American Legal Office,” Law and Society Review, Vol.5. No. 3., pp.342-357

iii) CHAPTER IN EDITED VOLUME: Should give the author’s surname, the forename or initials, the date of publication in brackets, the title of the chapter in inverted commas, the names of the editors of the volume, the title of the book in italics, the place of publication and the publisher. Example: Rose, Nikolas (1996) “Governing ‘Advanced’ Liberal Democracies,” in A. Barry et al., eds. Foucault and Political Reason: Liberalism, Neo-Liberalism and rationalities of Government. Chicago: Univ. of Chicago Press.

6. References to Legal Statutes and Judgments. Any references to legal statutes or judgements must follow the latest version of the O.S.C.O.L.A. style-sheet.
