The maximum length of discussions, records and historical documentation is 45,000 characters (with spaces), while reviews and reports may contain up to 16,000 characters (with spaces). Discussions and records are published with abstracts in English and Slovenian as well as summaries in English.

A English Microsoft Word template is also available for download: docx and dotx.

The articles should contain complete scientific apparatuses. Footnotes should be used for references to sources and literature. In the Sources and References list all of the sources and literature referred to in the footnotes should be listed in the alphabetical order. Archive sources, literature, magazines, online sources, oral statements etc. should be listed separately. The Chicago-style citation should be adhered to. When listing archive sources, the rules adhering to the Slovenian archive source citation guidelines (click here) should be observed.

The editorial board proofreads and edits the incoming contributions, and the authors must review the changes and authorise them. No additions to the text are allowed during correction. The editorship ensures the translation of the abstracts and summaries from Slovenian to English as well as from English to Slovenian. This journal does not charge APCs or submission charges.
