Notes on Format and Style
The magazine follows the English convention of spelling. Non-English words should be in italics and explained or translated in parenthesis.
We seek clarity, brevity and simplicity. Short sentences and paragraphs with a generous use of subtitles would be appreciated.
Long quotations should be avoided. Quotations of more than forty words should be indented. When footnotes are used, they should be numbered consecutively and no separate bibliography will be required. First references must be in full and subsequently abbreviated, ibid. should be used to refer to an immediately preceding reference but op. cit. and loc. cit. may not be used. Archival citations should be as brief as possible but the identity and location of the archive must be fully spelled out in the first citation.
Thus, references of various types of sources should be as follows:

Figures should be used for units of measurement and numbers with decimal points. Numbers below ten and multiples of ten up to one hundred should be spelled out and figures used for other numbers ('twenty' but '25'). Percentages should be in words such as '25 per cent' or 'twenty per cent'. Dates should be written as '3 December 2003'.
Contributors should include 30-50 words introducing themselves. We would like to attach photographs of the contributors, but this is optional. We recommend the inclusion of illustrations, maps, photographs, images of sources and documents wherever relevant and preferably in digital format. Maps, photographs and illustrations should carry full captions and attributions.
We urge contributors to follow copyright rules and provide generous acknowledgements and attributions. We are all aware of the difficulties of copyright protection with regard to material on the web, but hope the contributors will be conscientious in this regard.
