We welcome manuscripts on all philosophical aspects of chemistry. Please note our Copyright Agreement. No author fees will be levied.

Before you are planning to submit a paper to HYLE, check our Review Form (pdf file) to see how referees will judge your work.



   
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically by e-mail attachment to the editor (editor@hyle.org). The preferred text file format is Word for PC with all images embedded as low resolution JPEG files (ca. 150 dpi). Make sure that your e-mail attachment does not exceed 1MB.

The first page of the manuscript should contain the title of the paper, an abstract of 100-150 words and 4-5 keywords. Each page of the manuscript should be consecutively numbered, including pages of notes, references and captions. The title of the paper, the author's name and full affiliation address (including e-mail) are to be supplied on a separate page to ensure anonymous reviews.

Articles should preferably not exceed 10,000 words including notes and references. Divide up the text into numbered sections with instructive headings, starting with Introduction and closing with Conclusion.

Unsolicited book reviews are welcome, but suitability should be discussed before with the editor; they should not exceed 1,500 words and contain complete bibliographic details including number of pages and ISBN.

Symbols and formulas should preferably be typewritten and transferable into ASCII; if that is not possible (e.g. chemical formulas) reproducible figures are required for each formula (s.b.).

Quotations should contain no punctuation marks not found in the original passage. Use double quotation marks only for real quotations with page reference, otherwise use single quotation marks.

Notes should be numbered consecutively and placed at the end of the text as endnotes.

References should be listed at the end of the article in alphabetical/chronological order. A journal reference should comprise name, initials, year of publication, full title of paper, name of journal (no abbreviations), volume number, and first and last pages in the following style:

  • Nigel, D.: 1995, 'What is It Like to Be a Chemist', Journal of Philosophical Insight, 9, 432-445.

A book reference should comprise name, initials, year, full title, publisher, place of publication, and page in the following style:

  • Hale, R.T: 1993, Varieties of Chemicism, Ed. Química: Santiago de Chile, p. 22.
  • Newman, Y.: 1923, 'Wise old chemists', in: R.P. Oldman (ed.), The Book of Wise Women, New York: Marker & Blow, pp. 1432-1434.

In the text, references to articles or books by more than two authors should be by the first name and 'et al.', year and page (e.g., Dummy et al. 1991, p. 34); but the authors' names should all be given in the Reference section.

Figures and illustrations should be selected carefully and numbered consecutively. For accepted papers, high resolution graphic files (>300 dpi) are required. Note that electronic publication requires figures to be not too detailed and not too large. Provide an instructive caption to each figure at the approximate location in the manuscript, and refer to all figures explicitly in the text.
