Brussels Studies only accepts academic articles, i.e. articles resulting from studies conducted using methods which are generally accepted by the university community.
The subject of articles must always be centred on an issue which clearly concerns Brussels.
The articles are written in a clear and accessible language, adapted to a non-specialist public and free of jargon and unnecessary technical terms.
These elements are the object of an evaluation by the editorial staff when they receive the texts, and then by peers who are experts in the areas dealt with in the proposed articles.
The articles proposed for the general collection in French, Dutch and English contain a maximum of 30,000 characters (with spaces) and are accompanied by a summary containing a maximum of 800 characters.
The articles submitted for the ‘Strabismus’ collection contain a maximum of 15,000 characters. They are published with a commentary of 7,500 characters, written by an expert in the area in question who is selected by or who works in collaboration with the editorial staff. The initial author will have the possibility to publish a final response to the commentary of 5,000 characters.
The footnotes must comply with the author-date system (see instructions for authors).
The editorial staff will return the texts to the authors if they do not comply with the requirements mentioned above and in the instructions for authors.
Authors are invited to consider illustrating their articles with multimedia material such as images, sound, video, slides, etc. The editorial staff carry out a rigorous examination of the quality of the sources provided. Furthermore, in accordance with their editorial policy, the editorial staff have videos made at their own expense, to be integrated into certain texts with the author’s agreement.
Brussels Studies takes care of the translation of the texts.
