1. General Information

Energeia publishes essays, miscellanea and reviews as well as documents in German, English and all Romance languages.
All essays submitted to the journal should be unpublished original contributions from the field of linguistics or language philosophy; three independent reviewers will evaluate these anonymously within a period of three months.
The essays or reviews must be submitted as word-documents.
The essays should display a clear structure with headings and subheadings.
Every essay must be preceded by an abstract of approx. 150 words and from a minimum of five to a maximum of ten key words. Both the abstract and the key words should be composed in the language of the contribution as well as in English.
Furthermore, authors should enclose a short presentation of their academic focus as well as the indication of their place of work, their most important publications, their current research topics, etc.; this information should not exceed a maximum of ten lines.
We kindly request that authors follow these guidelines when writing their essays. Contributions which do not fulfill the necessary conditions cannot be accepted.

2. Formatting Essays and Reviews

2. 1. Quotations

Concerning quotations and linguistic examples illustrating the presented analysis: Quotations in Spanish, French, German and English as well as all examples in these languages need not be translated; quotations in other languages are to be translated into the respective language the article is written in.
Short quotations are to be incorporated into the running text and put between quotation marks of the type in example 1; all quotations exceeding three lines are to be set in the next line without quotation marks, indented five spaces from the left margin (cf. example 2).
In English, German and Portuguese quotations, the period is to be placed at the end of the sentence, not incorporating the reference to the source into the sentence, whereas in Spanish the period is placed behind the bibliographical reference.

(1) Example:

Comrie (1976: 52), for example, notes: “More generally, the perfect indicates the continuing present relevance of a past situation”.

(2) Example:

Denn wie Thomason und Kaufmans oft zitiertes Language Contact, Creolization, and Genetic Linguistics und auch andere Studien klar machen, ist gerade dauerhafter und intensiver Sprachkontakt eine fundamentale Vorbedingung für tiefgreifende Sprachumstrukturierung:
As we noted in chapter 3.2, two crucial parameters of intensity of contact in a borrowing situation are time and the level of bilingualism: long-term contact with widespread bilingualism among borrowing language speakers is a prerequisite for extensive structural borrowing. (Thomason/Kaufman 1988: 67)

Bibliographic references are to be incorporated into the text or illustrating examples; first the author, then the year, then the respective page (cf. example 2).

2.2. Footnotes

Footnotes are to be numbered consecutively and placed at the end of the respective page. In Spanish, the footnote is part of the sentence and placed before the period, unless it is a direct text quotation. In German and English, however, the footnote is placed after the period:

Los autores deberán atenerse a las normas editoriales de Energeia 1.
