Public sphere. Journal of the students at the Political Science Department
About the journal
Starting with 2020, the students at the Department of Political Science from the West University in Timisoara have their own, annual scientific journal. We invite them to bring their contributions consisting in: articles (which may be their Bachelor theses or Master`s dissertations in a compressed form), book reviews, interviews with graduates of our Department and academics, short reports or statements. Students who wish to contribute to the Public Sphere journal can be supported by professors in preparing and writing their papers.
Instructions for authors
The manuscript sent for publication (on e-mail, at firstname.lastname@example.org) will be written in the Microsoft Word program, using the 12-point Times New Roman font, with a 1,5 line spacing between rows. There will be no indentation, with one space left between paragraphs. The articles synthesizing the Bachelor or Master`s dissertations must be between 10.000 and 12.000 words in length. Interviews, book reviews, reports and statements will be prepared taking a total of 1.000 to 3.000 words into account. Papers have to be written in Romanian, English or German.
The first page of the research article necessarily contains its title, the contact data of the author (name, academic affiliation and e-mail address), an abstract of 200-250 words and up to seven keywords. Abstract and keywords are written in English. Please find a sample of the text structure in the attachment. Students are invited to use this model when writing their research articles. The reference guide can be found here. The other types of papers (interviews, book reviews, reports and statements) can be composed under a free format, considering the word limits presented above.
