:: Submissions and formatting guidelines
Submissions to the e-Journal of Portuguese History should be sent attached to an e-mail message
to the Editors.
Submission of a paper to e-JPH will be taken to imply that it presents original and unpublished work
not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

(maximum 100 words, in Portuguese
and English each one), 5 keywords (in Portuguese
and bibliographical references.
Papers may also include images, figures, charts, or appendices that should be sent on separate files.
Whenever needed, the author should provide the legal authorization of the reproduction
of these materials.
Footnotes should be also in Times New Roman, single-spaced, 10 pt font.
The footnotes should be kept to a minimum and may include source references or brief general
comments about an idea expressed in the text.
Authors are kindly requested to send a short biographical note in the body
of the message
accompanying the paper submitted. This note should include
the author's affiliation, e-mail address,
and permanent address for correspondence. All texts must be submitted in English.
Authors who do not feel totally confident in their English version must have their papers
translated professionally. Editors reserve the right to introduce a final review aimed at uniformity
of texts according to international standards.

:: Refereeing system
All papers submitted to e-JPH will be assessed through a double
blind refereeing system.
The Editors will endeavour to inform authors
as soon as possible about decisions on papers submitted.
Contributions will be acknowledged upon receipt but contributors
must be expected to wait up
to 6 months before notification of acceptance,
conditional acceptance, encouragement to revise
and re-submit or rejection.
:: Referencing system
References should follow the Harvard system, with bibliographical references
within the text
listing the author's last name, date of publication
and number of page, e.g. (Boxer 1969: 146).
Complete references should be listed at the end of the article

:: Practical observations
Where quotations in languages other than
English are required, authors are asked to provide
a translation into English
in the main text or in a note. The use of original Portuguese terms
(e.g. regimento, corregedor, sesmarias) is permitted whenever they have been
explained to English readers.
In these cases, a gloss may be added. Glosses should be set enclosed in parentheses.
Use italics (not boldface type) to show emphasis in text. Do not use italics in place of quotation marks.
Because this is primarily an online publication, hyperlinks may be included in the text.
Titles of persons are capitalized only when preceding and used in conjunction with the name of a person
(e.g. King Manuel I, and the king of Portugal).
Terms referring to governments and other military or organizational bodies may be capitalized
only when referring to one specific body in a context where only that body is meant
(e.g. Old Regime or Council of Regents).Spell out ordinal numbers (e.g. the seventeenth century,
and NOT the 17th century).
