Submissions – Contribute to the BiEPAG Blog

BiEPAG encourages submissions of posts from 500 to 1000 words long and communicated in an accessible way. The areas of our research cover EU Integration, Democratic consolidation, Socio-economic transformation and Inter-ethnic relations in the Western Balkans. We encourage you to include a title, one or two tables or photos, but please make sure that these are copyright-free.

To help authors with the submission process, we have compiled a style guide that you might like to consult before drafting an article.

Length and format
  • Proposed length of the article must be between 500 and 1000 words.
  • Please send us your draft article in Word format, with your name at the top.

Titles

  • Use narrative titles up to 20 words if possible.

The writing style and language

  • Your article should be written with a relatively wide audience in mind. Therefore we recommend that you avoid overusing acronyms and academic terms.
  • Use short paragraphs made up of four or five sentences.
  • Minimize the use of bold, underlining, and italics for emphasis.
  • Please try to provide English-language proof-read contributions.

Referencing

  • We use links rather than citations for references. Links should direct readers to more detailed reports or other pieces of research, news items or other blog posts.
  • Please insert a hyperlink at the relevant point of your argument that you would like to reference.

Biography and contributor photo

  • Please send us a narrative biographical note, up to three sentences in length, with your academic position, research interests, and details of your two most recent publications.
  • Please also send us a small, colour photo headshot in a .jpg format.

Where to submit

  • To submit potential articles, please send a short description of the argument and biography to kmezic@uni-graz.at
