Authors who decide to submit their papers for consideration for publication in EfI are invited to submit their manuscripts to the LIDA’s electronic management system by January 31, 2023.

PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS Organization of the paper and style of presentation Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are advised to consult a professional English language editing service or a native English speaker prior to submission. Manuscripts should be prepared with wide margins and double spacing throughout, including the abstract, footnotes and references. Every page of the manuscript, including the title page, references, tables, etc., should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections. Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face. Manuscripts should be organized in the following order:
Body of text (divided by subheadings)
Headings and subheadings should be numbered and typed on a separate line, without indentation.

All manuscripts should be submitted as anonymous papers (e.g. remove all the author names and affiliations under the title, the author data from document properties, all acknowledgments, etc.). Author data are entered under the segment Metadata. In this segment include the following data:
