Author Guidelines


Manuscripts  submitted for publication to the journal Teorija in praksa should not be  the subject of a review process, and should not have been previously published  in any other journal or book/monograph.

The  manuscript should be sent to the editorial board by e-mail to teorija.praksa@fdv.uni-lj.si, as  a Microsoft Word file attachment.

Prepare  the manuscript using A4-size paper, Times New Roman font, 12 point type, and  one and a half (1,5) spacing. Justify text, margins 2,5 cm on left, right, top  and bottom. Pages should be numbered consecutively. 

First  and last name of author(s) should be placed on a separate cover sheet attached  to the text. This page should also include the title and subtitle, professional  status of author(s), current employment, mail and e-mail address, telephone and  fax numbers. First and last name(s) should be printed in uppercase.  First/initial page of the manuscript should include only title, subtitle and  abstract.

A statement indicating that the manuscript is not a  subject of a review process and has not been previously published in any other  journal or book/monograph should be sent along with the manuscript. Author(s)  should define the type of submitted manuscript (original article, review  article or book review). The editorial board has the discretionary right to  make the final decision about the type of manuscript.

Original or review articles should not exceed 6.500  words, and book reviews 1.500 words. Longer manuscripts are accepted only upon  granted request, sent to the attention of the Editor in consideration.

An  abstract of not more that 100 words should contain a description of the theme  elaborated on in the article, used researching methodology, logic of  argumentation and conclusions. Up to seven key words should be submitted on a  separate line, at the end of the abstract.

The title, printed in uppercase, as well as  subtitles, should be predicative and not longer than 100 characters. Author(s)  should use subtitles in a manuscript longer than 1.500 words. Only two levels  of subtitles are allowed. Subtitles on the second level should be italicised.

Tables,  graphs and pictures should be submitted as an attachment in a separate Word  document or on separate sheets at the end of the manuscript (not within the  text), with informative captions and credits clearly marked and keyed to  images, and numbered consecutively. Captions should be printed in uppercase and  italicised (Table 1: TITLE OF TABLE, Graph 2: TITLE OF GRAPH,  Picture 3: TITLE OF PICTURE). Their positions in the manuscript should  be marked approximate.  Author(s) should determine how much space each table, graph or picture will  occupy in text. Space required for tables, graphs and pictures should be  included in the total length of the manuscript, either as 250 words (one half  page), or 500 words (one page).

Do  not use endnotes. Number footnotes consecutively; their number as well as their  length should be kept to a minimum. Footnotes regarding the author(s) being  referenced, as well as any acknowledgements, should include a remark regarding  their professional status and institutional affiliation. Also include  information regarding any financial or other support/assistance given during research  or preparation of the manuscript.

Quotations  and extracts from books and articles longer than three lines should be placed  in a separate, indented paragraph. This paragraph should be italicised, while  avoiding the use of commas.

It  is the author’s responsibility to obtain permission for the publication of  documents, use of databases or photography.



Reviews  of books and monographs, not older than two years, are welcomed. Author(s)  should avoid making references in the text of the book review. Information  about author and the reviewed book should be indicated at the top of the review  as shown below:

First Name  LAST NAME (of reviewer)       Author's Institutional  Affiliation

Author’s  First and Last Name Title: Subtitle     Publisher,  City, Year of publication, extent in pages, price (ISBN-13 number)

In case of a profound and critical  assessment of more than one book in a book review essay format, the author(s)  should apply the same standards that hold for preparation of an article for  publication. The information about the author of a review essay and books  reviewed should be delivered in the manner depicted above, except that the book  review essay should be titled. The list of references is also a necessary  element, placed at the bottom of the text.    



If the author’s name is mentioned  in the text, it should be followed by the year of publication in parenthesis:  Andrej Novak (1994). If not, the author’s last name should be included in  parenthesis as well: (Novak, 1994). Pagination should follow the year of  publication after a full colon: (Novak, 1994: 27-8). For joint authors, use  both last names: (Novak and Blumer, 2007). For works of three or more authors,  use et al. (Novak et al., 2003),  while in the list of references all authors should be mentioned. When the  second or any later edition of the book is cited, the publication year of the  first edition should be first noted: (Novak, 1953/1994: 7). Several references  should be separated with the use of a semicolon: (Novak, 1994: 7; Blumer, 1998:  3-4; 2005: 58). Cite several references of the same author published the same  year separately by use of small letter a, b, c, and so on, consecutively as  they appear in text: (Novak, 1994a; 27-9; Novak 1994b: 1).

List  references in alphabetical order by author’s last name at the end of the text,  subtitled References. Include all used literature. Eventual sources list  place separately after the list of references subtitled Sources. When  the year of publication of an author is the same, list references or sources in  sequence by publication year.
