  • East European Politics and Societies (EEPS) is an international, interdisciplinary journal for the examination of critical issues related to Eastern Europe. It serves as a forum for current work in East Europe studies, including comparative analyses and theoretical issues with implications for other world areas. Its geographical scope is the area that lies between Germany to the west and Russia to the east, and includes the Baltic region and the Balkans. The editorial board is composed of distinguished historians, cultural historians, literary scholars, political scientists, anthropologists, and social scientists.

    EEPS continues to publish special issues or cluster of papers dedicated to specific themes. However, due to page budget pressures, and our commitment to publishing the best individual research on the region, we will only consider those proposals that clearly demonstrate that the linked papers add up to more than the sum of their parts, whether by making a contribution to theory, extending the comparative and/or transnational reach of the journal, exploring interdisciplinary connections, or in some other way. Proposals should be discussed with the editors before submission.

    The journal does not normally publish book reviews, but may consider proposals for review essays, particularly relating to important work published in the region. EEPS sponsors the annual Michael Henry Heim Translation Prize for the best collegial translation of a scholarly article from an East European language into English; the winning article is published in the journal.

    Manuscript Submission Guidelines:

    Author’s Guide

    Manuscripts should be submitted in electronic format to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/eeps, where authors will be required to set up an online account on the SAGE Track system powered by ScholarOne. The standard manuscript length is normally 7-9,000 words including endnotes; authors should inquire first if a potential submission exceeds 10,000 words. Text and references are to be double-spaced with tables and figures appearing on separate pages. There is, of course, no set number nor a set length for endnotes to be utilized in a manuscript. Please consult the Chicago Manual of Style for the use of endnotes.

    Please keep in mind that posting working versions or conference versions of your article publically online could potentially compromise the blinding of reviews. If your article has previously been published on a conference website, social media website, university repository, or has otherwise been available online prior to submission to EEPS, please note this in your cover letter and in the SAGE Track questions about prior publication. Making an article available online prior to review does not necessarily disqualify the article from submission, but failure to note this may do so if such use is uncovered later in the review process.

    Authors should present figures and tables in electronic, final format. All manuscripts must include a 200 to 250-word abstract and a biographical statement for each author of up to 50 words. Manuscripts should adhere to the format of the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition. Authors who do not follow these instructions may have their manuscripts returned for revision before the formal review process.

    Manuscripts are normally sent to two reviewers for evaluation and comments. We allow two months for review, but the evaluation process may vary depending on reviewers' availability and responses. Normally, the Editors' decision is communicated to authors within four months from submission. Authors asked to revise their manuscripts have one to two months to submit a revised version. Revised manuscripts are sent back to the initial reviewers.

    Submissions must be accompanied by a cover letter containing contact information: the mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address for each author. One of the authors should be designated as the “corresponding author” whose mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address must appear on a separate title page.

    Submission to East European Politics and Societies implies that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content, nor is it under consideration by another journal. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the editors. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal.

    Manuscripts must include all necessary diacritical marks in both the text and the footnotes. Acronyms may be used in endnotes and text. Their first mention must be in spelled-out form: Popular Movement for the Revolution (MPR).

    Date form in endnotes and text is 17 October 1947.

    Endnotes should be double spaced at the end of the manuscript and numbered consecutively throughout the text. Endnotes will appear in the journal on the last page of the article. The first time any reference is mentioned, give full bibliographic information. References should be in the "notes" style of the Chicago Manual of Style.

    If the book, chapter, or article has more than one author, give the full names of all the authors. Use the original language of the reference. Titles in languages that do not use a Latin alphabet must be transliterated using the Library of Congress system.

    If you are using primary archival sources, give the source according to the relevant cataloguing system, and the location of the archive. Newspapers, government documents, and unpublished sources must be identified as completely and precisely as possible.

    In subsequent citations, only first author followed by “et al.” should be used [e.g., (Sechzer et al. 1996, 243).

    Please make sure that the names in the footnotes have all the proper diacritical marks.

    In the text foreign words and names should be spelled either in the original language or transliterated using the Library of Congress system. In general, it is easier to give common place names in their standard English form than in more complicated transliterations, but the original language may also be used. Include all necessary diacritical marks in your text. Words and names must be transliterated if they are not written in the Latin alphabet.

    Authors should also read the Style Guide for East European Politics and Societies, which provides an overview of the editing and copyediting process along with specific stylistic conventions adopted by the journal (See Style Guide).
