Bruges Political Research Papers

Guidelines for authors

The Bruges Political Research Paper series welcomes submissions dealing with theoretical and policy issues relevant to the politics of European integration. Contributions can be made in either English or French, double-spaced, in 12 point Times New Roman font, justified margins, and should not contain more than 9,000 words, including notes and references. All pages should be numbered consecutively. The cover page should contain a title, an abstract (no more than 150 words), and the contact information of the author. A brief biography of the author should also be included in the document. Headings should be numbered and appear in bold, with an extra line separating the heading from the previous section. If the new heading is a subheading (e.g. 3.1), no additional line is necessary between sections. References should be contained in footnotes, with a separate bibliography attached at the end.

Submissions can be sent via email to michele.chang [at] (Michele CHANG).
