• Author Guidelines

    Humanitas considers manuscripts from a wide variety of academic fields. These include Politics, International Relations, History, Law, Philosophy, Literature, and Economics. The journal favors articles that address issues of the greatest concern to the editors, and authors are thus encouraged to consult the Humanitas mission statement, “Rethinking It All: An Editorial Statement,” which was published in the first issue of the journal in its current format. They are also advised to familiarize themselves with past issues and with the topics and problems that are of perennial concern to the journal.

    By submitting a manuscript to Humanitas, the author certifies that the work has not been previously published and is not under consideration at any other journal.

    Submissions should be in Microsoft Word format.

    Authors can expect an initial confirmation upon submission. They should feel free to contact the journal if they have not received a decision on a manuscript after four months.

    Manuscript Style

    Humanitas prefers the Chicago Manual of Style, but other styles may be accepted, provided manuscripts are internally consistent. Footnotes are preferred over endnotes.

    Length and Abstract

    Authors should submit a separate abstract not to exceed 500 words. Article submissions may be of any length, but normally should not exceed the range of 7,000-10,000 words.

    Author Anonymity

    Authors should give their names, contact information, and institutional affiliation, but manuscripts are reviewed anonymously and should not bear the author’s name or institutional affiliation.
