How to Submit

If you are eligible to submit a paper (i.e., were invited to present it at the respective ESA conference), please send an electronic file to the editors of the current volume of the proceedings.

The deadline for submissions to Volume 5 is the 1st of November 2013.

Apart from changes to the layout, the paper will be published in the state in which you send it to us (i.e., they won’t be any editorial comments). So please make sure that you send us the final version of your paper. Due to our limited resources, you will not be able to implement changes to the content – including linguistic corrections – after the deadline (unless you do it yourself and know how to handle latex files).

Also, in order to ensure a uniform layout for all papers, please make sure that your paper conforms to all the style requirements outlined below. Papers who do not satisfy this criterion will be returned to their authors for the implementation of the necessary alterations.


Style Requirements

All major languages are accepted. Please send us a file in rich text format (.rtf) and use the following order of items in your text:

  • Title
  • Name (with your email address in a footnote)
  • Affiliation (without brackets)
  • Abstract
  • Main text
  • References

You may want to have a look at this exemplary paper in order to get an impression of what the final product will look like.

Headings. Headings should be numbered by using arabic numerals (’1.’, ’2.’, etc.). They may, but need not, include also titles (e.g. ’1. Introduction’). Please start the main words in the titles with capital letters.

Images. If you would like to include images in the main text, you may send them to us separately (either in jpg or in png format) and mark the locations in the text where they should roughly be placed.

Footnotes. Please use footnotes (rather than endnotes).

Citations. You are free to add citations in the main text or in the footnotes, as long as you are consistent in your citation method. If you add citations directly into the main text, please render them as concise as possible (e.g. using a simple Author-Year-Page format).

References. Please list all references at the end of the paper, in a separate section entitled ‘References’. As reference style, please use the Harvard style. Here are some examples:

  • Wollheim, Richard (1987), Painting as an Art, Princeton: Princeton University Press.
  • Wollheim, Richard (1970), ‘Nelson Goodman’s Languages of Art’, The Journal of Philosophy, vol. 62 (16), pp. 531-39.
