Editorial charter

  • Authors

An author wishing to publish a guest post on the blog can contact us directly (, in compliance with the present editorial charter. Posts are written free of charge by the authors and published voluntarily by the students managing BLIP! SPC. Authors are not bound by any exclusivity. Guest posts published on Blip! SPC reflect the views of their authors. Publication of a guest post by Blip! SPC does not mean that Blip! SPC endorses the views expressed in the post. Authors should provide their names and optionally their affiliation.

  • Editorial rules

Guest posts should be sent as a .doc/.docx document. The length of the post should not exceed 10,000 characters. References should be made accessible via an hypertext link rather than by footnotes. All references should be quoted in brackets and italics.

  • Iconographic rules

Where a photograph or image accompanies the article for illustration purposes, the photograph or image should be in portrait format and in jpeg or png format. The photograph or image should be free of copyright or have received explicit authorization from its author in order to be published on the site.

  • Publication process

Once received the proposed guest post will be rapidly reviewed by the editorial committee for acceptation. Upon acceptation the post will be adapted for publication and sent back to the author(s) for approval before publication.
