Studies are based on original research, solving the issue raised empirically, theoretically or methodologically.

The recommended length of the studies is 6000-8000 words, including footnotes and references with an abstract of up to 150 words, up to 10 keywords, and brief information about the author up to 100 words.
Book reviews introduce and critically evaluate new books emerging within the field of study. The author may choose to review one monograph or approach more of them together, usually if close in its key topic, methodology or conceptual basis.
