Instructions for authors

21: Inquiries into Art, History, and the Visual – Beiträge zur Kunstgeschichte und visuellen Kultur exclusively publishes original contributions in German, English, French, or Italian. Translations of writing that has appeared elsewhere in a different language will not be accepted. Moreover, the editors will operate under the assumption that you have proposed your text exclusively to the journal and are not submitting it simultaneously to other publications.

Submitted contributions will be evaluated initially by the editors prior to a double blind peer review process. The editors will make a decision about publication based on the recommendations of the peer reviewers. Authors submitting manuscripts will be informed six months after submission whether their contribution has been accepted for publication and which changes may need to be incorporated. The editors retain the right to make stylistic changes, if need be.

Submissions should not exceed 60-70,000 characters (including spaces and footnotes). Manuscripts are to be submitted as a doc. attachment via email to the editors: 21-inquiries@ikg.unibe.ch. In order for the document to be considered, please make sure it corresponds to the style sheet guidelines [PDF (German)] of 21: Inquiries into Art, History, and the Visual – Beiträge zur Kunstgeschichte und visuellen Kultur.
