Do you accept paper submissions for forthcoming issues?
No, we do not. Concilium’s issue planning starts three years prior to publication at its annual meeting where themes are chosen. Assigned teams then develop these themes, shaping how each issue is framed. Generally, Concilium invites authors directly and does not accept unsolicited submissions due to the rigorous planning process.
However, if you would like to propose a text of your own, you can send it to the Managing Secretariat (, which will forward it to the board for general evaluation. The text should not exceed 3,000 words/20,000 characters including spaces and must be in one of the following languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Dutch, Italian. Please consult the style sheet of Concilium.
Do you publish book reviews?
At the moment, we do not.
