Author Guidelines

The Eastern and North European Journal of Death Studies welcomes submissions of original works on different aspects of death and dying written from sociological / anthropological perspectives and related disciplines.

In submitting your work to The Eastern and North European Journal of Death Studies, you guarantee that:

  • your article, in whole or in part, has not been published or submitted for print or electronic publication elsewhere, in any language, nor will it be submitted to any other publication until the editorial board renders a decision on its publication;

  • the article represents your own work and does not include unattributed passages from work by other authors. If the study you report on is the result of collective research, all members of the research team must be indicated either as coauthors or appropriately acknowledged in a note at the beginning of the paper.

    When submitting a paper to The Eastern and North European Journal of Death Studies, please make sure that the entire submission, including bibliography, is formatted according to our standards. We use the American Sociological Association (ASA) style. If manuscripts do not conform to the specified format, authors will be expected to correct them at some stage before their final acceptance.

    Detailed instructions for manuscript preparation are as follows:
    Text must be in 12-point Times or Times New Roman font. All text should be double-spaced except for block quotes. Structure your paper using the following sections:

  • Title page: Includes full title followed by an asterisk, name(s) and institution(s) of author(s), a complete word count, running head, and a title footnote with name and address of author(s), acknowledgments, credits, and grant information (if any).

  • Abstract: Begin on a new page headed by the title. Brief paragraph (no more than 200 words) summarizing the work, followed by three to five key words.

  • Body: Begin on a new page headed by the title. Use headings and subheadings after the introduction.

  • Notes: Footnotes and endnotes should be indicated in the text with superscripted numbers. The notes can be typed at the bottom of the page (footnotes) or in a separate section labelled Notes or Endnotes. Do only one or the other; not both. Begin each note with its superscript number.

  • References: List alphabetically in a new section labelled References.

  • Appendices: If more than one, label Appendix A, Appendix B, etc. Appendices should be labelled with a title.

Bibliographic information for each source must be complete and correct. Type references alphabetically by author. In-text citations and reference lists have to comply with the guidelines of the American Sociological Association.

Manuscript submission, peer review, and editing for publication are done entirely through the Open Journal System. To submit a manuscript using this system, authors need to register and login at the website. Please feel free to contact editors if you experience any problems or have any questions regarding the submission process.
