Please observe a maximum of two hierarchic levels of chapter headings.
Please limit special formatting to a minimum.

In the text, the Harvard referencing system must be used. Quote author and year in brackets in the text: (→ Mellink 1987: 203). Avoid ff. for citing more than two pages, but give the full page numbering (→ Mellink 1987: 203−208).
Footnotes are appropriate for extended bibliographic references or for further discussions. They should be 9 pt, justified, with the number of the footnote in superscript.

Tables, figures and plates must not exceed 4 pages in total (e.g. 8 half-page-size figures). All photos in grayscale mode. The min. resolution for photographs is 300 dpi and for line drawings 600 dpi.
Note that the print space is max. 19.5 × 13 cm, including the captions.
Figures and tables will be reproduced at the end of each paper.

The author has to possess the copyright and right to use of all parts of the work. Please clear all copyright issues before handing in the paper!
Tables must be prepared in an Excel-compatible format and submitted as separate files.

Citation style
For English publications, use Title Case (capitalization for all major words).
Italicize the Titles of Books and Journals.
Do not abbreviate the titles of journals or series (i.e. use Baghdader Mitteilungen instead of BaM/BagM).
