NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS


Holocaust Studies: A Journal of Culture and History is a refereed journal.

Articles submitted to Holocaust Studies should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. If another version of the article is under consideration by another publication, or has been, or will be published elsewhere, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission.

There is no standard length for articles but 9–10,000 words (including notes and references) is a useful target. The article should begin with an indented and italicised summary of around 100 words, which should describe the main arguments and conclusions of the article.

Details of the author’s institutional affiliation, full address and other contact information should be included on a separate cover sheet. Any acknowledgements should be included on the cover sheet as should a note of the exact length of the article.

All diagrams, charts and graphs should be referred to as figures and consecutively numbered. Tables should be kept to a minimum and contain only essential data. Each figure and table must be given an Arabic numeral, followed by a heading, and be referred to in the text.

Articles should be submitted electronically to heather.marchant@vmbooks.com. To facilitate the typesetting process, notes should be grouped together at the end of the file. Tables should also be placed at the end of the file. Tables should be saved as text using the appropriate function within your word processor. If this function is not available then tables should be prepared using tabs. Any diagrams or maps should be sent separately in uncompressed .TIF or .JPG formats in individual files. These should be prepared in black and white. Tints should be avoided, use open patterns instead. If maps and diagrams cannot be prepared electronically, they should be presented on good quality white paper. If mathematics are included 1/2 is preferred over ½.

It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that where copyright materials are included within an article the permission of the copyright holder has been obtained. Confirmation of this should be included in a separate email.

Authors will receive a copy of the issue in which their article appears, along with an E-Offprint (PDF) of their chapter.

Copyright in articles published in Holocaust Studies rests with the publisher.
