Instructions for Authors

Postal Address:
Institut für Volkskunde/Europäische Ethnologie
Ludwigstraße 25/0
D-80539 Munich, Germany
Email: k.roth(at)

Authors should send their full postal and email addresses as well as their affiliation together with their paper.

All contributions must be submitted with a short abstract in English of a maximum of 150 words that summarises the main arguments and findings of the article.Length: Articles should have a minimum of 4,500 and a maximum of 9,000 words.Spelling: Though we prefer British spelling for articles in English, American one can also be used. Pay attention in particular to consistency. Do not mix different spellings.Transcription from Cyrillic alphabets should follow the scientific style. Do not use ch, zh, sh, iya but č, ž, š, and ija. The Bulgarian letter ъ is transcribed with ă. The Serbian letters ђ and ћ are transcribed with đ and ć. If your PC does not support these letters, use the popular form of transcription but mark all letters that will require diacritical marks. Romanian names should also be spelled in the way they are in Romanian, i.e. with all diacritical marks.Citations and References: Citations should be in Harvard style, author, date and page as follows (Verdery 1983: 27). This applies also to footnotes. No comma after author’s name. Don’t use p. or pp. Always cite page numbers where you are quoting or paraphrasing from a specific part of a text, and avoid too much citation where a work in its entirety is referred to. Avoid the use of ibid. and op.cit, but if you do so, make sure you use them correctly. Note cf. means “compare to”, not “see also”. If you mean the latter, say so. If scholarly work cited is not published, use for example (Smith n.d.) or (Smith forthcoming), if the work is to be published with certainty; however references to archival sources should be given in footnotes, particularly where they are unavoidably lengthy. Two or more authors: Separate authors with commas. Make sure that you use dashes between numbers and dates, for example April–May, 22–30, and not hyphens (-). All references cited, and only these, should be listed under the heading References, according to the style indicated below. Always give us page numbers for papers within edited volumes and journals. Don’t forget to mention the publisher.
