Guidelines for the presentation of manuscripts

We advise authors to present manuscripts according to the guidelines below in order to reduce editing time.

The font used shall be Times New Roman, size 12 for the text, and 10 for the footnotes. The following must be taken into account: the number of the footnote shall be placed before the full stop; the inverted commas before the full stop; no space between a word and the punctuation mark after the word or after the number. WARNING: Careless typing can lead to the rejection of the material!

The material shall be divided in: parts and paragraphs.
Headings shall be centered.
Subchapter titles shall be placed at the beginning of the line.
There is no full stop after titles; the same rule applies to chapter and subchapter titles; titles followed by subtitles are the only exception.
If the paper contains annexes, these shall be placed at the end of the paper, numbered.
Each study must be accompanied by an abstract (40-50 words) which specifies the intention of the analysis and the modes of work, by 5-7 key words and by a summary (one page and a half, size A4, in the above-mentioned standard format, containing the central part of the research and the results), all in English or in the language of the study in question.
Studies sent for publication must not be longer than 30 pp in the said format. Only exceptionally are longer materials accepted for publication. Such texts may be published in several numbers of the Magazine, following thus an older tradition of the Magazine. “Danubius” Magazine publishes materials in Romanian, English, French, German and Russian.

For an accurate writing, we recommend:
