to the PSR are invited from all disciplines, as long as they match
the Review's core orientation (see
Particularly welcome are the fields of history, geography, economics,
economic history, political science, international relations, sociology,
policy studies, anthropology, ethnography and folklore, archaeology, cultural
studies, and cultural and natural heritage conservation. The PSR will
also accommodate related discussions of methodology and critical theory.
The Review is committed to methodological pluralism: no combination of
disciplines and approaches will be turned away on principle, as long as
it proves to be effective and rigorous.
Manuscripts cannot be submitted to another journal or publication
while under review by the PSR. This is a standard requirement. The vast majority of journals uphold it.
A Quick Submission
Checklist for a last check of essential manuscript requirements is
Manuscripts should not ordinarily exceed 8,000
words, exclusive of notes, tables, and graphics. Preferred file format is .odt (Open Office). Why? Because Open XML and Open Document Text are flexible, salvageable if something goes wrong, and in all ways superior to proprietary binary files. The .doc and .docx formats are accepted, of course. You should be able, however, to save files in .odt from many processors. Do not send .pdf files. In all matters of
spelling, punctuation, abbreviations, etc., manuscripts should conform
to the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, or to appropriate
Portuguese, French, and Spanish manuals of style, and should respect our
note style, shown in the full Guidelines for
Authors. No bibliography is required.
All manuscripts should include a 150-word abstract (articles in
Portuguese, French, and Spanish should include an abstract both in the
language of the paper and in English). To facilitate the double-blind
peer review, authors are asked to send a separate file with cover page with their
name, address, telephone number(s), fax number, and e-mail address. Any
acknowledgments should be included on this cover page. Within the body of the manuscript itself, no name or other identifying
elements should appear. Otherwise the journal will have to spend time "anonymizing" your work.
Send all files as e-mail attachment to email@example.com. If the files are too large for your mail client, post them where we can pull them (on a for free cloud server, for instance).
all other style sheet matters and technical requirements, and for complete
illustration specifications, see the full text of the Guidelines
for Authors. These are available in HTML [English]. New PDF versions are being made, and links will be posted here.
