NOTES FOR CONTRIBUTORS

Spelling
Use antisemite, antisemitic. Capitalise North, South, East and West when used globally but use northern, western, south-eastern etc. Use per cent rather than percent or %. Hyphenate ‘post-war’ and ‘post-memory’. We prefer to use the ‘-ize/-ization’ ending for words such as organize, marginalization. Use First World War/Second World War not World War I/II.

Please also note the following points:
1. Hyphenated titles are capitalized in both parts, i.e. Vice-President.
2. For geographical locations, caps are only used if it is a defined geographical area, e.g. South Africa, but western Europe.
3. Brand names are capitalized, but not put in inverted commas.
4. For institutions, use upper case if it is an institution, i.e. the Roman Catholic Church, Parliament, but ‘a church’ (building), parliamentarians. Use upper case for ‘the Church’ and ‘the State’ when describing the institution.
5. Political parties are capitalized, but schools of political thought are not, i.e. the Labour Party, the Conservative government, but communism, fascism, conservatism, socialism (except Nazism, which should be capitalized).
