Brussels Studies only accepts scholarly articles, i.e. articles resulting from studies conducted using methods which are generally accepted by the academic community. The journal only publishes original works which have never been published.

The subject of articles must always be centred on an issue which clearly concerns Brussels.
The articles are written in a clear and accessible
language, adapted to a non-specialist public and free of jargon and unnecessary technical terms.
These elements are the object of an evaluation by the editorial staff when they receive the texts, and then by peer reviewers who are experts in the areas dealt with in the proposed articles.

The length of articles varies according to the collection. The articles submitted for the general collection in English, French or Dutch contain a maximum of 30 000 characters (with spaces) and are accompanied by a summary containing a maximum of 800 characters. The BSI Synopses are written by several authors from various institutions and disciplines, and contain a maximum of 60 000 characters. For its Brussels Studies Fact Sheet collection, Brussels Studies also accepts papers regarding empirical data in a short format of a maximum of 10 000 characters.

References must comply with the author-date system (see instructions for authors).
The editorial staff will return the texts to the authors if they do not comply with the requirements mentioned above and in the instructions for authors.

Brussels Studies takes care of the translation of the texts.

The journal does not charge APCs or submission charges.
