Article Submission Instructions

We welcome short articles on

a) concepts and theoretical approaches that are central to the study of the history of experience

b) the methodology of the history of experience

c) short empirical case studies and source analyses on the history of experience.

The editorial board will judge the suitability and relevance of submitted articles according to the interests of the Digital Handbook of the History of Experience. You are welcome to discuss your submission with the editors beforehand. Articles are peer-reviewed (non-blind, within the community of HEX scholars) for both academic quality and content relevance.

Articles should be between 5000-10000 characters including spaces and references. Please use footnotes with the short-title system according to the Chicago Manual of style.

You are free to include hi-resolution images with your article, but all rights must be secured in advance by the author and credit/caption lines provided with the image file. Please send the images in a separate attachment/file and their location clearly marked in the text (for example: “image 1 here”).

Please submit your article proposal to:

HEX Handbook Style Guide

Individual authors are responsible for ensuring the fluency of English grammar, spelling and style. The HEX Handbook does not have resources to correct for language, beyond a style check for consistency of spelling and referencing. Articles will not be accepted for publication until the editors are satisfied that the language level is satisfactory.

Please submit in Times New Roman, 12 pt, double spaced. 

Use British English spelling and punctuation throughout. Use single quotation marks for quotes and article titles and double quotation marks only for quotes inside quotes. Terminal punctuation usually falls outside the quotation marks. 

Use -ize endings 

Use figures for numbers 20 or less, and write in words for higher numbers. 

Date format: 31 August, 2022 

Abbreviations only carry a period if they do not end in the terminal letter of the word. Hence Mr, Dr, eds, are unmarked but trans., ed., etc., carry the period. 


Use the short-title system, citing each reference in full in a footnote at first mention and then using author surname and short title for additional references to the same source.
