Guidelines

Author(s) of original manuscripts who would like their work to be considered for publication in the European Pupils Magazine are invited to submit their paper as follows:

The articles must be written by students or teachers after their accurate personal or group research.

The topic of submitted papers has to be concerned with the History of Science and Technology or with Technology for Green Energy. Papers may be the result of either personal research or group or classroom practice in the covered topic.

Submitted articles should not have been published or being currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submitting an article with exactly or almost exactly the same content as found in publications of another journal or conference proceedings may result in the refusal of its publication. Submitted articles have to reach the editor in the Author’s mother tongue and in English one. Only if both versions are submitted and the submission form includes a list of 10 keywords (at least) in each language, it can be assured that the article is likely to be published. If you find a national referee for your Country, send your article and the submission form to the given e-mail address. Otherwise mail to

ngeorgol@otenet.gr, epmagazine@libero.it, epmitalian@hotmail.it and/or ganges@alice.it

 

Include in your mail:

  • The article in English (*.doc or *.rtf format);
  • The article in your mother tongue (*.doc or *.rtf format);
  • FOUR pictures per page (at least) in *.jpg format with good resolution.
  • Submission form (do not forget the keywords in your mother tongue, too) filled and signed both by students and the referred teacher.

 

Before adding the files as attachments, please make sure the tables and/or pictures are inserted in the proper place and the files can be opened without any problems.

 

Please, classify your manuscript into one of the following sections:

General teachers’ papers

News

Fun Pages

14 to 16 years old authors

17 to 19 years old authors (Secondary school)

19 to 24 years old authors (University)

Technology for Green Energy 14 to 16

17 to 19

 

For the students’ articles (14 to 1617 to 1919 to 24 sections), teachers are not allowed to work with the students as co-writers. Such a possibility is permitted for the General Section, only.

 

Formatted articles should not exceed 4 pages (Din A4) including all tables, formulae and pictures.

You have to be in the possession of the copy-right for submitted pictures and in order to avoid any problems with unauthorized reproduction we suggest exclusive use of your own pictures. Each image source has to be cited in the Iconography at the end of the submitted paper. The images must be numerated in the caption i.e. (fig. 1) and in the iconography as well. To avoid problems with the quality of your pictures in the printed version we ask to submit pictures with a resolution of 300 dpi. The EPM Editorial Board reserves the right not to publish all or some of the included pictures for copyright and/or layout reasons.

The last page of the submitted paper has to include the paragraphs:

Bibliography

Iconography

In addition, the optional paragraph Acknowledgements may be added.

To help you to submit a good article, we add some further recommendations that will avoid delays in publication and unnecessary work both for you as Author and for our Editorial Team.

 

Please use as few special formatting procedures as possible in preparing your manuscript in the text processor.

Texts should be written in a clear language without grammatical and/or spelling mistakes in order to make sure that the reader understands what you intend to say.

If you are not sure whether your work is likely to be published, do not hesitate to consult your national referee or the European Editorial Board before submitting the finished article. Have a look at the published articles in the multimedia CD and/or in the web-editions www.epmagazine.org or http:\\epmirrorsite.xoom.it/ and download a printed issue to see the layout of accepted articles.

The more your submitted article differs in layout and formatting, the more it causes delay and extra work.

Priority will be given to articles which are expected to interest a broader number of readers. This may particularly be the case when the covered topic corresponds with curricula in the European Countries.

In case different submitted articles cover very similar topics, the European Editorial Board will also pay attention to a balanced geographical distribution.

 

We are sorry to say that contributions without a clear scientific content, lack of originality, poor presentation and/or language, cannot be considered for publishing.
