Instructions for Authors
Slovo a slovesnost does not accept texts already published or accepted for publication elsewhere. This also applies to foreign language versions of texts not solicited by the editorial staff.
Contributions should be submitted electronically as an attachment to e-mail, preferably in .doc or .rtf format. Visual material (e.g. diagrams) should be submitted in separate files in an appropriate format (e.g. .jpg). If the text includes drawings, graphs, less commonly used symbols or fonts, or other atypical graphic elements, we recommend that you also send the contribution in printed form.
Contributions to the Articles and Discussion sections should include an English abstract 100–200 words in length and a list of 3–10 key words in English and in the language of the article. The abstract should summarize the contents of the entire article, not just the results. In addition to the English abstract, a summary in another foreign language is welcome. There is no length limitation for this second summary.

When preparing the contribution, observe the following guidelines:
- Text which is to be typeset in italics should be written in italics in the electronic version.
- Slovo a slovesnost uses spaces between letters in individual words for emphasis, e.g. “language as a s o c i a l p h e n o m e n o n”. This should be marked only in the printed version of the text, not in the electronic version.
- Literature should be referred to in the text using the author’s surname, the year of publication and the page numbers, in parentheses (Jakobson 1971: 697); the list of references should be presented at the end of the text, should not be numbered, and should be in alphabetical order by author surname; if more works by the same author are listed, they should be put in chronological order; only literature cited or referred to in the article may be included in the list of references; in the Chronicles section, bibliographic information should be placed directly in the text (in parentheses); authors should adhere to the following reference list model:
