“Glocalism”, a peer-reviewed, open access and cross-disciplinary journal, is currently accepting manuscripts for publication.

We welcome studies in any field, related to glocalization and globalization.

To submit a paper:


The journal does not have article submission charges (ASCs) or article processing charges (APCs).

The articles can be related either to the current CFP’s topic or to other topics about glocalization and globalization (for the journal’s  section ‘Other essays’).


Double-blind peer-review rules

  1. Every article submitted to the journal will be subject to anonymous review by two experts, who will be selected by the peer-review coordinators. The peer review process begins after each CFP’s deadline.
  2. The article must not have been previously published or under review for publication in other journals at the same time. Infringement of this rule means that future submissions will not be considered.
  3. Within two weeks after the CFP’s deadline, the author will receive an email communicating if the article has been rejected. Otherwise he will receive suggestions expressed anonymously by experts, for revisions to be made before the article is finally approved and published.
  4. The revised text must be submitted within two weeks of the first review. Otherwise the paper may be published in subsequent issues (in the section “Other essays”).
  5. Every year the list of referees involved in the selection process will be increased.



General guidelines for the authors

Papers can be in any language and of a length chosen by the author, while the abstract (around 250 words) and keywords (5) must be in English. Authors are asked to observe the following guidelines when preparing their text:

1) Use the same typeface throughout.

2) Number pages consecutively.

3) Leave additional spaces above and below section headings and above and below indented quotations.

4) Type all headings, both main and sectional, with initial capital for the first word only and without full points at the end.

5) Double quotation marks should be used, with single only for quotes within quotes.

6) Dates as 18 august 1990; 1914-18, 1898-99, twentieth century, and decades as 1990s without an apostrophe.

7) Where dictionaries give alternatives for words ending in -ise, -ize, use the -ise suffix.


Style guidelines for the authors

Please also observe carefully the following requirements for notes and references:

1) Footnotes should be used to convey information which comments briefly on, or explains, the text. Notes should be indicated by numbers super-scribed before punctuation and should be provided at the end of the article.

2) Glocalism does however expect references for quotations and information as an indication of the sources used.

3) To give references use author’s surname, publication’s year and, after colon, pages’ number, all between brackets (Smith 2005: 32-33). Use the year followed by a letter to distinguish different publications in the same year (Smith 2002a: 59; Smith 2002b: 12-27).

4) Complete book and journal references in the bibliography at the end of the text:

J. Haslam (1999), The Vices of Integrity. E.H. Carr 1892-1982 (London-New York: Verso).

R.C. Smail (ed.) (1956), Crusading Warfare (1097–1193), 2 vol. (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press), vol. II.

J.R. Young (2006), The Scottish Parliament and witch-hunting in Scotland under the Covenanters, in “Parliaments, Estates and Representation”, 26, pp. 60-91.

H.J. Cohn (2006), The Electors and Imperial Rule at the end of the Fifteenth Century, in S. MacLean, B. Weiler (eds.), Representations of Power in Medieval Germany 800-1500 (Turnhout: Brepols), pp. 295-313.

5) Contributors are especially asked to note that the initials (or first name) of an author should come before the surname, and that the surname should not have any kind of capital letter except for the initial.

6) Book references require place, date of publication and the publisher; journal references require both volume number and date of publication, but the number of the journal part only if pages are numbered separately from the beginning for each part.

7) Page ranges follow the house style: 1-9, 11-19, 20-29, 21-29; 100-109, 101-109.

8) Titles of archive materials, source collections and journals must be given in full at the first reference, accompanied by abbreviations to be used later, if wanted.

9) Usage within an article should always be consistent; typescripts that diverge considerably from these guidelines may be returned to the author for correction.
