Instructions for Authors
The Journal welcomes manuscripts of between 4,000 and 6000 words (exclusive of bibliography and notes) from research areas devoted to post-war European affairs.
Articles submitted to the Journal should not have been published elsewhere nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submission of a paper will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere. Submission of a paper also implies that, upon acceptance of an article by the journal, the author(s) will transfer copyright of the article to the publisher. It is understood that submission of the paper for publication has been approved by all of the authors.
Manuscripts should be carefully checked by the authors for errors before they are submitted. It is authors’ responsibility to ensure the accuracy of quotations and references, and to get permissions to cite another person’s work (where necessary).
Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be forwarded proofs for which they are responsible for finding possible errors.
Articles will be peer reviewed and if accepted, final pre-publication proofs will be forwarded to authors for verification and checking. Alterations and/or additions will not generally be accepted at this stage.
Where possible, authors should prepare their manuscript using Microsoft Word, Times New Roman 12 point font. Manuscripts should be double spaced with margins of at least 3 cm. with adequate margins for referee comments.
Headings should appear in bold on a separate line but otherwise use the same formatting as the text. Paragraphs should be separated by a blank line, be left aligned and NOT indented. Long quotations should be indented.
An abstract of no more than 150 words should be included at the beginning of the article, followed by at least four (4) key words arranged in alphabetical order.
Manuscripts must be submitted online using the ANZJES Submission Form.

Australian and New Zealand Journal of European Studies prefers UK-English, i.e. –ise rather than –ize endings; –isation rather than –ization, All non-English words should be presented in italics.
The Australian and New Zealand Journal of European Studies prefers the usage of the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) 17th edition, Notes and Bibliography (NB) style, using footnotes to document sources used in the text and, at the end of the paper, a complete list of references of those books, articles etc. cited in the text as per the examples below:
Sample notes show full citation (first mention), followed by shortened citation (if referenced again) for the same source. The sample bibliography entries follow the notes.
Multiple authors: If there are four or more authors, list up to ten in the bibliography; in a note, list only the first, followed by et al. For more than ten authors, list the first seven in the bibliography, followed by et al.
