Abstract and keywords
The title (and subtitle, if necessary) is written in bold type, book titles in italics and article titles within “double quotation marks”. No blank lines between paragraphs are to be applied. New paragraphs are introduced by shifting the left margin to the right (using the TAB key). Graphic design (style, framing, edges, pagination etc.) should not be applied. Uniform font style is used throughout the text (Times New Roman), the font size for the main body of the text is 12 and for footnotes 10. For notes, footnotes should be used; the same applies for quotation references, if quotation exceeds 40 words (see examples below). Otherwise, the “author-date” style of referencing should be used in the main body of the text by inserting the author surname, year of publication and page number in brackets at the end of quotation (Nietzsche, 1992: 31). Entire bibliography should be listed in alphabetical order and according to the year of publication (if more works by the same author are listed) at the end of contribution under the heading “Literature”, and should be limited to the scope of works directly referred to in text. Bibliography at the end of text should be put down according to the rules applied in the examples listed below, and organized alphabetically:
