Author Guidelines


The manuscripts – in Italian, Spanish, French, English or Portuguese – should be sent by e-mail to the following email address:


The first page of the paper should include the title, name of author(s), affiliation, and e-mail addresses. Abstracts in the same language as the one used in the text and in English of about 800 characters, and three to five keywords in both languages will be included in a second page.


In general, the marks that authors should use are quotation marks: “…”. Textual quotations, though, should be made by using angle brackets: «…………». However, quotations which are within another quotation must be included in quotation marks: «…“…”…». Full stops and other punctuation marks should be placed after quotations marks and brackets. E.g.: ». ”. ). When making a digression from the main argument, authors should use the long dot (e.g.: C. maintains that ¾in an early essay¾ B. seldom complies with Hume’s principle). Within quotations, eliminated passages should be substituted with the following signs: […].

All notes are to be included as footnotes and numbered in ascending order of appearance in Arabic numbers as superscript before the full stop at the end of the sentence.

References should be added in the footnotes following the author-date style, possibly followed by colon and page numbers, e.g. 1 Kelsen 1945: 121.

All cited works should be included in the references list, following these guidelines:

  • Monographs: Bobbio, N. (1979). Il problema della guerra e le vie della pace, Bologna, il Mulino; if references are made to a translation: Mill, J.S. (1981). On Liberty (1858), ital. trans. Saggio sulla libertà, Milano, Il Saggiatore.
  • Articles published in reviews: Rawls, J. (1985). Justice as Fairness: Political not Metaphysical, «Philosophy & Public Affairs», 14, 3, 223-251.

The Idea of a Free Man, in Id., Rights, Justice, and the Bounds of Liberty, Princeton, Princeton University Press, 3-29. If the article appears in a collection by different authors or an encyclopaedia: MacCallum, G.C. (1972). Negative and Positive Liberty, in Laslett, P., Runciman, W.G., Skinner, Q. (eds.), Philosophy, Politics and Society. Fourth Series, Oxford, Basil Blackwell, 174-193.
