Contributions should be written using standard A4 format (1,5 spacing, Times New Roman 12). Use footnotes rather than endnotes.

Use the following order and numbering of pages:

Page 0: title and subtitle, author’s (or authors’) name(s) and affiliation, complete address (including e-mail address).

Page 1: title and subtitle, abstract in the language in which the article is written (in case of full-length articles).

Page 2 etc.: body of the article

If the article is written in Bosnian, the summary (on a new page) should be written in English, German, French, or Italian (including the title of the article). If it is written in English or german, the summary should be written in Bosnian.

References, beginning of the new page.

At the end of the article, on a new page, any special matter (i.e. drawings, tables, figures) that could not be integrated into the body of the text.

If sections and subsections in the text are numbered, it should be done with Arabic numerals (e.g. 1./1.1./1.1.1.). Different font types should be used for section titles at different levels:

  1. Bold (Times New Roman)

1.1. Numbers in bold, title in bold italics (Times New Roman)

1.1.1. Numbers in roman, title in italics (Times New Roman)

Within the text, citations should be given in brackets, consisting of the author’s surname, the year of publication, and page numbers where relevant, e.g. (Bachelard 1983, 246). If the author’s name is part of the text, use this form: Bachelard (1983, 18) claims…

Quotations should be given between double quotation marks; longer quotations should be intented and set apart from the main body of the text by leaving one blank line before and after, printed in italics, without quotation marks.

Words or phrases in languages other than the language of the article should be in italics and accompanied by a translation in brackets, e.g. padež (case).

Examples should be numbered with Arabic numerals between brackets and set apart from the main body of the text by leaving spaces before and after. Use lowercase letters to group sets of related examples. In the text, refer to numbered items as ((3), (3a), (3a, b) or (3 a-b).


At the end of the manuscript provide a full bibliography, beginning on a separate page with the heading References. Arrange the entries separately by the surnames of authors, with each entry as a separate hanging intented paragraph. List multiple works by the same author in ascending chronological order. Use suffixed letters a, b, c, etc. to distinguish more than one item published by a single author in the same year (e.g. 2001a, 2001b). If more than one article is cited from the same book, list the book as a separate entry under the editor’s (or editors’) name(s), with crossreferences to the book in the entries for each article.

Use given names instead of initials whenever possible.

Each entry should contain the following elements in the order and punctuation given:

  • (First) author’s surname, given name(s) or initial(s), given name and surname ofother authors, year of publication in brackets follwed by a comma;
  • Full title and subtitle of the work;
  • For a journal article: Full name of the journal and volume number, inclusive pagenumbers;
  • For an article in a book: full name(s) of editor(s), ed., title of the book, inclusivepage numbers;
  • For books and monographs: the edition, volume or part number (if applicable),and series title (if any). Publisher, place of publication;
  • Titles of books and journals should be in italics;
  • Titles of articles should be in double quotation marks.Some examples:Beaugrande, R. de, W. Dressler (1981), Introduction to Text Linguistics, Longman, London Crystal, David, ed. (1995), The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge
