Articles submitted to the journal must be original contributions and not under consideration for any other publication at the same time. All contributors must conform to the style and reference technique of JH. Submissions are evaluated by at least two reviewers. Authors get feedback on the review process as soon as possible.

Technical presentation of manuscripts

1. Supply an electronic file (Microsoft Word).

2. Use Times New Roman (12 pt) and 1.5 line spacing.

3. Indicate paragraph breaks by leaving a line open. Manuscripts should be reasonably divided into sections and, if necessary, sub-sections. Clearly indicate the hierarchy of subheadings.

4. Cited forms should be marked by quotation marks and emphasized expressions should be marked in italics.
