Each article must be preceded by a short abstract in English, regardless of the language used for the main text.
The title must use the same language used in the text.
The qualifications of the author must be indicated under the title. They must always be in English whatever language is used for the article.
Each article must be divided in paragraphs and have a length between 20,000 characters (minimum), and 300,000 characters (maximum).
A brief summary of each judgment reviewed is required. It must always be in English, even when the article has been written in another language.
As ERDAL is an international journal, it is essential to avoid abbreviations that may not be understood outside the geographical and cultural area in which they are routinely used and known. Therefore, abbreviations are not recommended unless they are essential.
Footnotes should be numbered consecutively. Their numbers should appear as superscripts in the text and reported in the footnotes. The footnotes should be placed at the bottom of the text column in which they are cited.
The articles must be written in paragraphs, and structured in the following manner:
