Author Guidelines

Instructions for authors - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 

Manuscripts should be submitted to the editors (redaksjon_eip@hf.ntnu.no) as e-mail attachments or through https://is.gd/eipinnsend.

Editorial Procedure

Articles that are found promising will be subjected to review by independent expert peers (double-blind refereeing). The author will normally receive response within two months. When the article has been accepted for publication, it is subjected to copyediting, whereupon it is returned to the author for proofreading. The article is then set, and set draft is sent to the author for final approval (in this last round a 48 hour deadline applies, and only minor changes, e.g. typographical and formatting errors, are accepted at this stage).

Formal requirements

If contributions are submitted via email, it should be in the prescribed format (preferably Microsoft Word). The author’s full name, professional position, institutional affiliation and email-address must be given in the actual email message or accompanying letter. The letter can include suggestions for impartial and external referees whom the author finds suitable.

Article length shall normally be 3000 to 8000 words. All contributions must be made anonymous, that is, all authors must ensure that any references to their own works or other statements identifying the author directly or indirectly are avoided or replaced by the reference ’xxx’. The responsibility for inserting this information after the expert peer review rests upon the author. The author is responsible for procuring permission to use illustrations and other materials. Figures and pictures must be of adequate resolution and format – preferably EPS or TIF, with a minimum of 200 dpi. Pictures of lower quality may be used in the initial document provided that higher quality versions can be produced if the article is accepted for publication.

Language, abstract, keywords and author details

The journal accepts manuscripts written in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. The first page of the manuscript must contain the full title, an abstract of up to 250 words, and a maximum of five key words. Author details and affiliation are submitted separately but are put back when and if the paper is accepted for publication. Degrees and titles (e.g. Dr., Ph.D.) are, as matter of style, not included in the name of author/s on the first page but are indicated in the issue biographical list of contributors and the article Indexing Metadata available to readers.   

Author-year style of referencing

Etikk i praksis – Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics follows its own author-year style that combines APA style and the so-called Harvard system of referencing. For examples, see citations and list of references in the most recent published articles in the Archives or set your citation management software (e.g. EndNote) to APA 6th. For legal documents, citation examples listed on http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/legal/ should be followed. You may request for an EiP EndNote style *.ens file. In addition, the following specifications apply:
  • Submitted papers should use the Times New Roman font, 12 point for the body text, with 1.5 spacing. Use indentation or a blank line (choose one) to indicate a new paragraph.
  • Avoid numbered headlines. Use bold 14 point type for first level headings, and italicised 12 point type for second level headings.
  • Leave the right hand margin uneven. Do not use manual hyphenation or page shift.
  • The number and length of notes should be kept to a minimum. Notes should be placed at the end of the document (endnotes).
  • For in-text citations, give the surname of the author and the year of publication. As a general rule, page references should be supplied after year of publication, separated by a colon. For example (Luhmann 1992: 16–20).
  • Do not use abbreviations such as ibid., op.cit., loc.cit., idem, or et passim.
  • Quotations must be indicated by quotation marks. Quotations that are longer than three lines must be organised as separate paragraphs using 10 point font, single spacing and an 0.5 cm indentation from the left hand margin. Use single quotation marks for a quotation enclosed inside another quotation. Use square brackets to indicate any shortening of a quotation: […]
  • Distinguish between the dash and the hyphen. In order to emphasise words, please italicise – do not underline or use bold type.
