Author Guidelines


The Editors of ATLANTI welcome prospective authors' initial approaches. Acceptance of articles is subject to an anonymous refereeing process. Papers submitted to ATLANTI should be original contributions and should not be under consideration by another publication or have been or will be published elsewhere. The authors should indicate this at the time of submission.

Each manuscript should be submitted via e-mail to the email of the editors. Articles should be written on A4/Letter paper, double-spaced, and with sample margins. All pages (including those containing only diagrams and tables) should be numbered consecutively. There is no standard length for the articles but 6,000 – 8,000 words (including notes and references) is a useful target. The articles should begin with an indented and italicised summary of around 100 words, which should describe the article's main arguments and conclusions. The author should provide brief bibliographical details, including affiliation and full correspondence address, research interest, and recent publications.


Authors are responsible for ensuring that their manuscripts are aligned with the journal style.

Sub-headings should be in capitals (or Roman numerals); sub-headings in lower case italic.

Quotations should be in single quotation marks, doubled with a single. Long quotations of five or more lines should be indented without quotes. Capitals should be used sparingly, principally for proper titles and where they may be necessary to avoid ambiguity.


Simple references to be inserted in round brackets at the appropriate place in the text, stating the author's surname, the publication date of work referred to, and relevant pages. For example: (Adams, 2006: 34).

Comments appear as notes, indicated consecutively through the article by raised numerals corresponding to the list of notes placed at the end of the manuscript.

The reference list should be after the list of notes:

  • Containing all the works referred to,
  • all works should be listed alphabetically by the author's surname (or name of sponsoring body), stating the author's surname, name and/or initials, date of publication, publication title, edition, place of publication and publisher, and pages if relevant.
