Thematic proposals for an issue of the journal can be submitted by academic researchers in Mediaeval Studies from both Germany and abroad.

This interdisciplinary body, composed of international scholars, examines all suggestions and finally decides, after an evaluation process involving several stages, about the acceptance of a proposal.
