FEU is created by the European Liberal Forum (ELF)


Each issue of FEU is dedicated to a particular topic, as described in the call for papers below. Unsolicited submissions are also encouraged and will be considered for future issues. Please write an abstract of approximately 300 words outlining your ideas for the article and send it to the editorial board via the submissions page. We welcome all contributions and ideas, but we cannot guarantee that an article will be published until the revision process is complete and the final version has been approved and accepted.  

FEU is a peer-reviewed journal. If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to submit the first version of your contribution, which will be sent out for double blind peer review by an expert on the topic. The final decision about the article will consider the opinion of the reviewer and will be taken upon receipt of a revised version, if any modifications are required. 

Keep the following factors in mind before submitting your abstract/paper

Is the paper worthy of attention and important for policymakers? Does it make a significant contribution that is topical, timely, and consequential for the policy sector?
Does the paper make a distinct contribution to current debates, present new arguments and supporting evidence, or approach the topic from an angle that enriches our understanding of more general trends?
Presentation and Structure
Is the paper structured in a consistent and logical way – with clear subsections – supporting the clarity of its arguments and analysis? Are the arguments and supporting evidence presented in a coherent and accessible way?
Liberal Perspective
Does the paper adhere to liberal values and principles? Does it advance our understanding of the topic from a liberal perspective and/ or offer compatible solutions to real-life problems?
European Relevance
Does the paper apply or contribute to wider debates about EU policies? (Not limiting itself to a national context.) If a national case study is used, is its link with the European level of analysis clearly defined?

All submissions must be made via our dedicated platform
