Information for International Students
We understand that some universities have programs in which students go straight from secondary education to a five or six-year program. For authors enrolled in concurrent Bachelor’s/Master’s degree programs lasting five or more years, our only requirement is that you not have completed the fourth year of that program at the time of your submission.
Authors from three-year undergraduate programs (e.g. French Licence, Italian Laurea, etc.) are welcome to submit papers written during or before their terminal year of study. Authors who graduated early (e.g. completing a four-year undergraduate program in two years) are also welcome to submit papers written during or before their terminal year of study.
