Our journal has no article processing or article submission charges.

Manuscript Submission Guidelines:
Manuscripts submitted to DETUROPE should be original contributions not under consideration for any other publication at the same time. If an article is under consideration by another publication, authors should clearly indicate this at the time of submission.
Manuscripts should normally not exceed 10,000 words and must be written in English, German or Czech, Hungarian or Serbian. Our intention is, however, to publish most papers in English language. Manuscripts should be typed double-spaced, including references. Manuscripts should be submitted by e-mail in Word file to the editors (contacts are found in the homepage of the journal). All general editorial formats, abbreviations, use of statistics in text, citations, and references should conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (5th edition,) see:

On the first page please include name of author(s) and title; author(s) note, including present position, complete address, telephone/fax numbers, e-mail address, and any acknowledgement of financial or technical assistance. The list of keywords should not contain more than 6 items that define the subject matter. A brief abstract of no more than 300 words should substantively summarize the article. If a paper is not written in English or German, then the title, keywords and abstract should also be given in either English or German.

Body. The text, with major headings centered on the page and subheadings flush with the left margin. Major headings should use all uppercase letters; side subheadings should be typed in upper and lowercase letters.

Tables and Figures. The data in tables should be arranged so that columns of like materials read down, not across. Nonsignificant decimal places in tabular data should be omitted. The tables and figures should be numbered in Arabic numerals, followed by brief descriptive titles. Authors should insert tables and figures in the text where these should appear. Authors may be asked before the publication of their papers to provide tables and figures as separate good quality files in JPEG or TIFF formats, or as EXCEL files.
Additional details should be footnoted under the table not in the title. In the text, all illustrations and charts should be referred to as figures. Figures must be clean, crisp camera-ready copies, black-and-white or colour.

Reference List Style. List references alphabetically, principal author’s surname first, followed by publication date in parentheses. The reference list should be typed double-spaced, with a hanging indent, on a separate page. Do not number references. Be sure that all titles cited in the text appear in the reference list and vice versa. Please see the specific examples below.
References in the text should be cited by the author’s name, year of publication, and if a direct quote, page numbers(s) in brackets e.g. (Airey, 1999, p. 22).
Where references include two authors, always cite both names every time the reference occurs in the text.
Where references include three, four or five authors, cite all authors the first time the reference occurs; in subsequent citations, include only the surname of the first author followed by et al. and the year if it is the first citation of the reference within a paragraph.
Where references include six or more authors the form (Airey et al., 1999) should be used.
A full list of references including all authors in alphabetical order should be given at the end of the paper. Some basic examples are given here:

Nash, D. (1989). Tourism as a form of imperialism. In V.Smith (Ed.), Hosts and guests: The anthropology of tourism (pp. 37-52). Pennsylvania: University of Pennsylvania Press.
