Manuscripts: The Editors of Lexonomica welcome initial approaches from prospective authors. Acceptance of articles is subject to an anonymous refereeing process. Articles submitted to Lexonomica should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publications at the same time. If another version of the article is under consideration by another publication, or has been, or will be published elsewhere, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission. Articles should be written on A4/Letter paper, double-spaced and with sample margins. The text, including the notes, references, illustrations, tables etc. should be in a »Garamond« font. All pages (including those containing only diagrams and tables) should be numbered consecutively. There is no standard length for the articles but 5,000–10,000 words (including notes and references) is a useful target. The articles should begin with indented and italicised summary of around 100–180 words, which should describe the main arguments and conclusions of the article. The author should provide brief bibliographical details including affiliation and full correspondence address, research interest and recent publications.

Style: Authors are responsible for ensuring that their manuscripts conform to the Journal’s style and are in good language. Minimal use of styles and formatting is recommended. Headings and sub-headings should be marked in a decimal classification style (e.g. 1, 1.1, 1.1.1, to the depth of no more then four units. Long quotations in the text of more lines should be indented. Short quotations should be inside quotes. Short quotations inside inside quotes should be inside inverted commas. Foreign words should be in italics; if used in brackets or quotes they should not be italicised. Authors are advised not to use bolding in the text and notes. The abbreviations should be used correspondingly (i.e., e.g., viz., etc.). Pictures, tables, diagrams and illustrations in the text should be correspondingly marked (title and source, if appropriate) and in a format permitting the adjustment of size.

References: The authors should follow The Chicago Manual of Style (15th or later edition) for quotations and references.
