All contributions whether articles or reviews are welcome and should be sent by e-mail as attachment at firstname.lastname@example.org. Papers will be refereed on a blind basis by Public Reason’s referee board. Acceptance notices will be sent as soon as possible. The editors may ask for revisions of accepted manuscripts.
Papers should have an abstract and key words. Please limit your paper submission to 8000 words, including footnotes and references, and format it for blind review (the text should be free of personal and institutional information). Along with the article, but not in the article, please send contact details: current affiliation, address, telephone number and email address. Authors are responsible for reinserting self identifying citations and references when manuscripts are prepared for final submission.
Book reviews should have no more than 4000 words.
All manuscripts should be formatted in Rich Text Format file (*rtf) or Microsoft Word document (*doc) with 12 pt. font size and double-spaced, in Rich Format Style.
