Carlo Dickens aims at publishing essays both as html pages and as PDF files, depending on the nature of the contribution itself. A paper with several hypertextual links, especially if not long in size, or containing clips and sounds, will be published in html format, whereas a paper with a long text and no links will be published as an Acrobat file (PDF), which is not automatically manipulated by the reader's computer and whose copies are therefore identical all over the net. This allows scholars to cite precisely the number of the page when quoting from an article.

Although we do have a policy for text format, PDF files may not follow it if they are reprints of articles already published elsewhere on paper. In this case the PDF file format will closely follow the original paper version.
