Deadline for submitting the abstracts: 15th of July 2021

Deadline for submitting the first draft: 10th of September 2021

Categories: Emerging Technologies, Rule of Law & Democracy, Environmental & Energy Policies 

Concept of the publications: 

Policy papers containing original research results that have not been published elsewhere. They should provide an insight into a topic of interest that belongs to one of the three categories. They should focus on a policy issue and offer specific policy recommendations, on the premises of fact-based argumentation.  

Style and format: APA format guidelines

Length of the article: 3000 to 8000 words including references; the articles may be written in collaboration with other authors and the number of words can be extended to a maximum length of 8000 words.

For the purpose of consistency, all papers submitted must have a minimum length of 3000 words, regardless of the number of authors (the word count includes title, abstract, tables, figures, and reference list). 

Guidelines for peer-reviewing the articles: Submitted papers will be evaluated by a double-anonymous peer-review model, in which authors remain anonymous to the reviewers throughout the review process. Independent reviewers will be asked to judge the validity, significance, and originality of the submitted work. 

Colloquium format: Dedicated session prior to the Eurosfat 2021 Forum. Fellows will present their research in a public workshop which will be held online. Each track will be moderated by a member of the Europuls team.
