Texts sent to the journal should comply with the guidelines detailed hereafter.

Presentation of bibliographic references

Please DO NOT use the “Harvard” system, with references such as (De Waele, 2000: 21) in the tekst and full bibliographical references at the end of the article.

Please put the references in footnotes respecting the standards below.

  • Authors’ names without capital letters (except the initial), preceded by the initial (or initials) of the first name (for the initials of the first name, we indicate the consonant(s) of the beginning followed by a period: P. for Peter; Chr. for Christian; J.-Fr. for Jean-François).

  • Title of works in italics.

  • If it is an article published in a journal, italicize the name of the journal and put the title of the article in quotation marks (model “S. Saurugger” below).

  • If this is a contribution to a collective work, see the « D. Flore » model below.

  • Do not forget the place of publication (city) for the books, the year of publication, the indication of the pages to which the reader is referred.

  • Use the abbreviation OJ for the Official Journal of the European Union and indicate in letters the month of publication.

Example

K. Lenaerts and P. Van Nuffel, Constitutional Law of the European Union, London, Sweet & Maxwell, 1999, p. 533.

S. Saurugger, “Sociological Approaches to the European Union in times of turmoil”, Journal of Common Market Studies, 54/1, 2016, p. 71.

D. Paternotte and P. Ayoub, “Challenging Borders and Imagining Europe: ILGA and LGBT Activism in Central and Eastern Europe”, in J. Bickham Mendez and N. Naples (eds.), Border Politics, Social Movements and Globalization, New York, New York University Press, 2014, p. 231.

OJ, n° L 2, 2 January 1989, p. 13.

When a source that has already been cited is still mentioned later, the following will be done: in the case of a book, the author's first and last name, as well as the title of the article, if any, is given, and then op. cit., to end with the relevant page and paragraph directions;

  • in the case of an article, the same rule applies, but you can replace op. cit. by loc.cit.;

  • if the same author is cited two or more times in succession, simply place ibidem (or ibid. or idem or id.) after the first quotation;

  • in the case of a document or a judgment, the reference is normally resumed, leaving it short (no longer giving the date of the judgment or the full title of the case);

  • in general, one can specify the first time the source is cited, for example, op. cit. supra note 4.
