Submission guidelines

Languages

Poljarnyj vestnik publishes articles in English and Russian.

Style

Authors should follow The Chicago Manual of Style and use the Author-date system for bibliographic references.

Transliteration

Please use the Library of Congress transliteration system. For linguistic articles, the scientific transliteration system is preferred. Geographical names with Anglicized spellings should be rendered using their common appellation, i.e. Moscow, Warsaw etc.

Quotations

Quotations in Slavic languages should appear in the text in the original, with English translation in a footnote. There is no need to transliterate Cyrillic text. Bibliographical references to both original and translation should be given; please state where translations are your own.  Linguistic examples should be numbered consecutively throughout the text.

Technicalities

Please do as little formatting as possible. Use italics for emphasis. No underlinings.

Quotations of four lines or more should be indented. Do not use quotation marks for indented quotations.

Do not use tabulators for indent or at the start of a new paragraph.

Use double quotes (“ ”) for (non-indented) quotations, single quotes (‘’) for quotations within quotations.

Quotation marks follow full stop, comma, question mark and exclamation mark, whereas they precede colon and semi-colon. (ie: “quotation,” “quotation.” “quotation!” “quotation?” “quotation”; “quotation”:)

Footnote references follow all punctuation marks.

No space between initials, e.g. A.S. Pushkin, not A. S. Pushkin

Use a hyphen for hyphens (e.g. nineteenth-century literature), an n-dash for dashes between digits (e.g. 1858–1910 or pp. 137–57), and an m-dash (—) to mark a pause in sentences.
