Deadline for all Articles: Call for papers is now open.
Submission of Manuscripts
Please note that before an article is put forward for consideration in the GYIL, authors MUST confirm whether the article they wish to submit has only been submitted to the GYIL, that the article has NOT been previously published and is NOT currently under consideration with another Journal and/or Publisher.
Authors are required to submit an electronic version of the text to the editors via email at yearbook[at]internat-recht.uni-kiel.de.
Word counts for manuscripts vary by section and according to the nature of the subject matter discussed. These word counts are therefore intended as guidance to authors rather than as strict requirements. Submissions significantly above or below these ranges may be returned to authors for revision. All word counts are inclusive of footnotes.
- Forum, Focus and General Articles: 10,000-12,500 words
- German Practice Reports: 1,500-3,000 words
- Book Reviews: 750-1,500 words
Abstract and Keywords
Manuscripts intended for the Forum, Focus and General Articles sections should also include a 100-200 word abstract and up to 8 keywords which will be incorporated into the editors’ introduction and also be published in the GYIL’s online table of contents and used for indexing purposes.
Statement of Affiliation
Authors should provide a brief statement of affiliation in the first footnote of their manuscripts.
Style and Citation Requirements
Submissions should be saved in a standard format (Times New Roman or Arial) with unjustified right margins, 1.5 line spacing and without automatic hyphenation.
Articles should be according to the House Style of the GYIL and submitted in MS Word (up to version 2010) or WordPerfect (up to X5). Please refer to the GYIL Style Sheet for detailed information on preparing and submitting manuscripts.
All information quoted or relied upon from other sources (whether published or unpublished) must be fully and correctly cited in footnotes.
