Information for authors as pdf file
A. What should your manuscript look like?
Please send your manuscript in an electronic file generated by one of the usual word processing programmes to the editor in chief and the managing editor. Make sure that the name is unambiguous (e.g. “YPPGP 3_Climate change education global). The pages of your manuscript should be numbered consecutively (bottom right).
Format: In the body of your text, please use Times New Roman 12 Pt, 1,5 spacing, 6 Pt spacing after each paragraph. Set your margins to “normal” (in Word).
Quotes longer than three lines require a paragraph of their own, no quotation marks, and will be indented when the publisher typesets the manuscript.
Headings: Please structure your text using subheadings as appropriate. (1. Introduction, 2. Subheading, 2.1. Subheading to 2, 2.2. Subheading to 2, 3. Subheading…)
Abstract: Please provide a brief summary of your argument of up to 300 words.
Layout: Please disable all forms of hyphenation and set your text flushed to the left and ragged on the right.
Illustrations and diagrams: We ask you to refrain from using illustrations and diagrams as far as possible. Where absolutely necessary, these should be sent along in separate, printable files. It is incumbent upon the author to settle copyright questions and to clearly anchor the position in the text.
Submissions in English by non-native speakers: The Yearbook is open for submissions in English, which can constitute up to 25% of each volume. Non-native speakers who plan to submit their work in English should take care that, if needed, their manuscript is proofread professionally. Unfortunately, we cannot reimburse you for the costs of such copy editing.
Please use parenthetical referencing (author year) according to the Harvard referencing
system; below some examples.
Punctuation: If the quote is part of a sentence, the sentence ends with a full stop after the quotation marks or bracket. If the quote consists of an independent sentence, the quotations marks come last.
Where to put the reference: The reference comes after the quote if the author has not been named before the quote. E.g. She investigates the claim “that sometimes one’s upbringing in a culture simply renders one unable to know that certain actions are wrong” (Moody-Adams 1994: 293).
The reference comes before the quote if the author has been named. E.g. Michele Moody-Adams (1994: 293) investigates the claim “that sometimes one’s upbringing in a culture simply renders one unable to know that certain actions are wrong”.
Emphasizing the references: Please do not emphasize the references, neither in the body of the text nor in the list of references.
More than one author: Please mention two authors of a work without “and”. E.g. (Donaldson/Kymlicka 2011). If a work has more than three authors, please mention the first author and the others per “et al.”. E.g. (Constable et al. 1940).
Multiple works by the same author from the same year: Please use lower case letters after the year in accordance with the sequence in which you quote them. E.g. (Moody-Adams 1994a) for the first of Moody-Adams’s work that you quote from 1994 and (Moody-Adams 1994b) for the next etc.
Multiple works in one place: Please use semicolons between two or more works that you reference in order to support the same claim. E.g. (Moody-Adams 1994; Rawls 1971; Donaldson/Kymlicka 2011).
Page numbers: Please add the page numbers following a colon. In order to reference the next following page, use “f.”. E.g. (Moody-Adams 1994: 293 f.). Please do not use “ff.” for more than two pages but give the exact page numbers. E.g. (Moody-Adams 1994: 290–293).
Vague references: If you do not wish to reference a particular passage but rather an idea that is expressed throughout a book, parenthetical reference without a page number suffices. E.g. (Rawls 1971). When paraphrasing particular passages references should be preceded by “see”. E.g. (see Rawls 1971: Chap. 2).
Footnotes: Please use footnotes for short digressions or additional notes that would interrupt the flow of your argument in the text. Works that you mention there but not in the rest of the text are supposed to be referenced fully in the footnote and not in the reference list.
Reference list: Please compile a reference list that does not distinguish between primary and secondary literature, single spaced with 6 Pt spacing after each element. Here are examples for books (a), articles in journals or magazines (b), articles in edited volumes (c), and works online (d). Please provide DOIs where available.
