The NHS-Bulletin is the newsletter of the NHS. It appears yearly and publishes a report of the latest NHS activities, short articles, interviews, book reviews, calls for papers, and other kinds of information relevant to Hartmann studies. We require the submissions to conform to a fixed format, and to undergo a peer-review process with at least one referee acquainted with Hartmann’s work.

Basic format requirements for articles:

  • An abstract of about 100-200 words.
  • When citations are provided in German accompanied with an English translation, only the English translation should appear in the body of the text; the German citation can thereby either be moved to footnotes or removed.
  • The language used to refer to books should be consistently homogeneous. For instance, would a paper mention two titles such as “Teleologisches Denken” and “Philosophy of Nature,” the author would be required to homogenize the language either by using only the German or by translating both into English.
  • German quotation marks („…“) must be replaced by English quotation marks (“…”), even for quotes in German.
  • For the sake of homogeneity, the texts should be submitted in American English. For instance, “behaviour” becomes “behavior,” “favour” becomes “favor,” etc.
  • The NHS-Bulletin follows the convention according to which periods and commas should be written inside the quotation marks. For instance: Hartmann introduced the concept of “superformation.”
  • Book titles and abbreviations of book titles should be in italics, and titles of articles should be in quotation marks.
  • Quotations of more than 40 words should be indented.
