Author Guidelines


The Swiss Review accepts submissions on a rolling basis. However, we consider it in the interest of both authors and editors if submissions are published without too much delay; thus, if the next three issues of the Review are already full, we accept submissions only in exceptional circumstances and if the submission in question will not require updating before publication.

Please send your submission by e-mail to the Managing Editor (

For submission, our Author Guidelines (click here) must be respected and our Word template (click here) should be used.

Please note that only submissions conforming to the requirements set out below will be considered. Nor do we accept work-in-progress for consideration: All submission should be ready for publication (with the exception of corrections or required alterations). As a rule, it is not possible to substantially alter or extend your submission after it has been accepted for publication.

Your submission will subject to a single blind peer review. The reviewer will recommend either acceptance, acceptance conditional upon revision, or rejection of the paper. If your paper is accepted, you will be able to read the proofs before publication; again, this serves merely to ensure that your text is printed correctly, not to implement significant changes.

Authors of articles and practice reports will receive five copies of the issue in which their contribution is printed. Authors presenting their thesis will receive two copies. All authors will also receive a PDF version of their contribution for personal use. Please contact our publisher Schulthess should you require offprints of your submission. Simultaneously with the print issue, contributions will be made available electronically on  HeinOnline and Swisslex. In accordance with the guidelines of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Swiss Review also allows authors to make their contribution available, after a delay of 12 months from publication, in an institutional on-line archive (repository) of their choice.
