Manuscript submission is to be done by email attachment to: [email protected]. The article should be sent in two different versions. One of them formatted in Rich Text Format (.rtf) or Microsoft Word (.doc), including the author name and institutional address. The other one is requested in Portable Document Format (.pdf) and prepared for anonymous refereeing, with all the identifying information removed. If symbols or other technical apparatus are used, relevant fonts have to be sent in the attachment or, alternatively, the PDF file should contain embedded fonts. Papers published in THEORIA do not exceed 10,000 words including abstract, footnotes, and references.

THEORIA also accepts book reviews. Reviews should not exceed 1,400 words and should neither be divided into sections nor include footnotes.
