– original contribution  = the paper is written for the first time – we are sorry we will not publish already published papers

= what you prove in this paper was not previously analyzed by others, not as you did it, anyway.

– the most recent critical sources/bibliography in your domain – either published in your own country, or in foreign journals/volumes/books etc

– your paper must be clearly TOPIC-ORIENTED – we are sorry we will not publish papers on themes unrelated to the theme of the respective issue

– your paper should be analytic rather than descriptive – you need to have a THESIS – what the paper wants to prove, which should also be specified in the abstract; you need to ANALYSE that particular work/event etc, not describe/retell it; your paper needs to be an argumentative one; and it needs a CONCLUSION

– you need to CLEARLY SPECIFY ALL YOUR SOURCES. Lack of such specifications will make readers accuse you of plagiarism. ALL THE SOURCES QUOTED IN THE TEXT need to be mentioned in your WORKS CITED list, at the very end of the paper. If you want to mention other works, but they are not quoted in the text, place them under WORKS CONSULTED, after the WORKS CITED; keep your footnotes/endnotes at the minumum; use IN-TEXT CITATION

– try not to be over-specialized in your article – the volume will be also read by people outside your own area of research; think about them, too

– the consistency and logic of your argument, the structure of the paper

– academic standard of the language – see link

– adherence to MLA (2011), see link for details
