Submission guidelines



The journal Amfiteater publishes articles in the field of the performing arts in the context of different media, cultures, social sciences and arts. Articles are accepted in Slovenian and English languages. It is expected that any manuscript submitted has not been previously published and has not been simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. All submissions are peer reviewed. 


The recommended length of articles is approximately 30,000 characters including spaces. The author’s name, postal address and e-mail address are to be specified on a cover sheet along with a short biography for publication that does not exceed 550 characters including spaces. An abstract of up to 1,500 characters (including spaces) and a list of keywords (5–8) are to be added at the end of the article. A list of acknowledgements or funding should follow keywords.


Submit articles as an attachment file in Microsoft Word or Open Office format, in the Times New Roman font, 12 point, with 1.5 line spacing. Each new paragraph is marked with an empty line. Quotations longer than five lines are placed in separate paragraphs, in 10 point size, without quotation marks. Abbreviations and adaptations of quotations are marked in square brackets. Notes are not meant for quoting literature; they should appear as footnotes marked with consecutive numbers.


When quoting an author and related work within the text, state only the page numbers in brackets, e.g., (161–66). When the author of the quoted work is not mentioned in the sentence, state the author’s name and the page numbers in brackets without punctuation between them, e.g., (Reinelt 161–66). For different bibliographical entries by the same author, include a shortened title of the work, e.g., (Reinelt, Javno 161–66).



The in-text citations and bibliography is structured according to MLA style, 8th edition.
