Translation of a quoted passage and titles

Authors presenting their translations should indicate in parentheses after the translation or in a note “my translation.” If the translation is by someone else, the name must be indicated.

In general, titles that are well known in their English translation can be cited in English first, with the original title in parentheses.

Italics are used for isolated words and phrases from another language, especially if they are not listed in a standard English-language dictionary like Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate


Images are required—color or monochrome—in RGB color mode. Please, set the resolution of images destined for web pages to 72dpi, and save images in .jpg or .png format only. Resolution: between 1500 and 2500 pixels wide. Don’t enlarge a small image to avoid pixelated images. The related images to incorporate into your paper should have permission from the image owner or use pictures in the public domain. You can choose royalty-free photos with a Creative Commons or similar license. Otherwise, you can create some images of your own. The editorial team will evaluate the images, and choose the most appropriate. The images are the authors’ sole responsibility. All images published by Art Style, Art & Culture International Magazine are available under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).

Captions for figures: Times New Roman 10 pt.

Works of art can be cited using this format:

Figure 1. Artist’s name, Title, Date, Medium, and support. City, Collection. License information.

Please, include the publication citation for where the artwork’s image was found unless you have viewed the artwork in person. Any image that is being reproduced publicly should consider adding copyright information, i.e., who owns the right to an image or if it is under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).

In-text, the word figure is set in roman, lowercased, and spelled out except in parenthetical references, where the abbreviation (fig.) may be used, or the word Figure is capitalized whenever it appears with a number, or abbreviated in parenthetical references (Fig. 1). All text references to them should be by the numbers: “as figure 1 shows . . .”; “compare figures 4 and 5,” as Figure 2 shows, (Fig. 3) or (fig. 4).

Italics versus quotation marks

Titles of journals, magazines, pamphlets, reports, and similar freestanding publications are, like books, italicized when mentioned or cited in text or notes.

Titles of articles and features in periodicals and newspapers, chapter and part titles, titles of short stories or essays, and individual selections in books are set in headline-style and enclosed in quotation marks.

Titles of movies (or films) and movie series and of television, radio, and podcast programs and series are italicized. A single episode in a television, radio, or podcast series is set in roman and enclosed in quotation marks.

Titles of paintings, drawings, photographs, statues, and other works of art are italicized. Titles of world’s fairs and other large-scale exhibitions and fairs are capitalized but not italicized. Smaller exhibitions (e.g., at museums) and the titles of exhibition catalogs (often one and the same) are italicized.

Titles of websites and blogs mentioned or cited in text or notes are normally set in headline-style.

Citing sources in the text rather than in the notes.

The notes allow space for unusual types of sources as well as for commentary on the sources cited, making this system extremely flexible. Because of this flexibility, the notes and bibliography system is preferred by many writers in literature, history, and the arts. As long as a consistent style is maintained within any one work, logical and defensible variations on the style are acceptable if agreed to by author and publisher. Another way to reduce the number of notes is to cite sources (usually in parentheses) in the text. This approach can work well for a string of consecutive citations that refer to the same source (with or without the use of ibid.).

Text citations:

One author:

In this way, the development of an everyday aesthetics (Berleant 2017) in this analysis…

Thus, discovering the “reconciliation image” through cinema, Schoolman (2020) positively develops the concept…

Aesthetic identity continuously becomes different (Schoolman 2020, 167).

According to Schoolman (2020, 213), we can discover the reconciliation image in film…

Thus, each ideological state apparatus is itself ideological (Althusser 1976).

Two authors:

Meyer and White (2021) or (Meyer and White 2021)

Two authors and different works:

(Meyer 2020, 84; White 2021, 54–60)

Three authors:

Cohen, Meyer, and White (2021) or (Cohen, Meyer, and White 2021)

Four or more authors:

Cohen et al. (2021) or (Cohen et al. 2021)

Reprint editions and modern editions—more than one date

(Althusser [1970] 1976)

Quotations should be single-spaced and separated from the text.

After a displayed quotation, the source appears in parentheses after the final punctuation:

What to look for in the reference section

Key questions you can ask yourself while including the references:

Are the references relevant?
Are the references cited correctly?
Is the use of each reference valid?
Are there any significant references missing that should be included?
Is there extensive self-referencing? Please, avoid out-of-place citations or more than 10-15% self-referencing.

Author Biography: your full name, recent position, and institution, and a short bio with no more than 150 words, e-mail and/or website, and ORCID ID.

The author should prepare a complete text minus any running headers of author names. It is essential to allow a blind review.

The author’s name is required on the title page and biography. For the review process, it will be omitted.

There is no problem if the author wishes to cite his or her publications in the bibliography. The works cited in the bibliography may include those of the author because without identifying the author’s name in the text, the reviewers have no way of knowing who among the authors in the bibliography is the author of the article under review.

The author is responsible for the images used in the article, attending to the recommendations indicated in this guide, besides using the image under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).

Authors should also be informed about the following procedure of publication:

Peer-Review Process

Authorship and Contributorship

Editorial Policies

Research Publishing Ethics

Terms & Conditions

Art Style Magazine essentially considers the recommendations of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).

For the current and upcoming submissions, we ask the authors to provide their ORCID IDs.

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a globally establishing standard for the unique assignment of scientific authors to their own publications. The ORCID iD as a persistent identifier allows the unique differentiation of authors, e.g. in the case of identical names, name changes or different spellings. It is independent of location and reflects changing affiliations. It thus contributes to the better visibility of authors and their publication output. Increasingly, publishers and research funders require an ORCID iD for the submission of publications or applications.

Checklist for authors submissions:

  1. Confirmation that the authors have read and understood the guidelines;
  2. Funding information (institutional support, or if the author is an independent researcher);
  3. Competing interests declaration;
  4. Permission obtained for use of copyrighted material from other sources (including the Web);
  5. Documentation for any citations to unpublished work (eg, articles in press/personal communications);
  6. Information about previous submissions to other journals (eg, name of journal, reviewer comments);
  7. Confirmation that the manuscript has been submitted solely to Art Style Magazine and is not published, in press or submitted elsewhere;
  8. ORCID iD.

Before you submit your extended essay or scholarly article, please ensure your manuscript is ready for submission. Papers submissions that do not meet these recommendations will be returned.


Papers submitted to Art Style Magazine are automatically checked for plagiarism; if a paper is plagiarized, it will not be accepted. All published articles go through the plagiarism scanner and must meet the ethical standards of academic conduct. If plagiarism is discovered in a published article, the plagiarized piece will be removed, and the author will no longer be able to publish in this magazine.

License and Publishing Agreement

Authors are required to sign a License and Publishing Agreement, when a paper is accepted for publication, retaining copyright while allowing the Art Style Magazine to publish under the terms of that agreement. Authors of Art Style Magazine are invited to accept and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of  Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).
