The Federalism-Regionalism Review is an electronic publication under the rules of Open access. It uses formatting software that operates by means of the use of particular ‘styles’. For this reason the text must be set up as simply as possible:

-       Do not number pages;

-       Texts should be in Times New Roman 12 point with single spacing;

-       Different headings must be clearly distinguished; no more than three levels of these should be used, and according to the following format:

1.     Top level heading

1.1.   Second level heading

1.1.1.     Third level heading

-       Paragraphs should not be separated by a blank line; a new paragraph begins on the next line after the end of a paragraph.

-       Foreign words or words from ancient languages (e.g., Latin) should appear in italics. It is necessary to avoid using italics, bolding, or underlining in order to highlight words or phrases;

-       Tables, graphics, and images must be submitted in a separate document, with indications as to their respective position in the manuscript;

-       Quotations are enclosed by English-style quotation marks, without any space between the first quotation mark and the first word quoted, or any space between the last word quoted and the final quotation mark: (‘example’). The text in quotation marks should not be placed in italics.

Texts submitted must not contain grammatical errors. Capital letters must bear accent marks where appropriate.

Texts must be submitted in electronic form either as Word documents or in RTF format to the following e-mail address federalisme-regionalisme@misc.ulg.ac.be.

Texts will be sent prior to publication for evaluation to specialists in the matters covered, using the double-blind format. The anti-plagiarism tool of the University of Liège (based on Ephorus) is used for every submitted article before the peer-review process.

PREAMBLE

Fédéralisme-Régionalismeis an international academic electronic journal. It publishes original articles which address the political dynamics and the institutional structures of the complex political units which are regionalised or federal States, as well as inter- or supranational organisations. It is run by an Editor-in-Chief, a Sub-Editor and an international editorial board composed of researchers and teachers from various universities and research institutions as well as independent researchers. Through its publications, access to which is deliberately free of charge, it sets out to contribute to the dissemination of work on federalism and regionalism in the public as well as the academic arena. The Fédéralisme-Régionalisme journal is placed online on the PoPuPs website (www.popups.ulg.ac.be).

The Author has written a work of scholarly research (hereinafter referred to as ‘the Work’) in French/English/Dutch, which, after having been submitted to the editors and two anonymous reviewers, and where necessary corrected to meet the requirements of the comments made by the latter, has been accepted by the Licensee for publication in the Fédéralisme-Régionalisme journal.

ARTICLE 3: Scope of the licence

The licence is granted for a period of time equal to the ‘droit d’auteur’ (copyright) (the whole of the legal copyright duration) and world-wide, with no territorial limits.

This is a non-exclusive License.

ARTICLE 4: Sub-licence

The Licensee has the right to grant sub-licences to third party users of the ‘popups.ulg.ac.be’ website so that they might, whilst respecting the restrictions of the current Agreement, read, download and print the works published in the Fédéralisme-Régionalisme journal.
