Authors are encouraged to submit their paper in the respective EDQ template, available here. The template provides a recommended structure of the paper, all necessary formatting guidance, and examples of citing datasets and other sources.

Use endnotes to cite a source in the text and/or provide clarification.

For the referenced sources EDQ applies the Chicago Manual of Style. Please consult the Guide at A quick guide is available at

At the end of the referenced source include its DOI number. If a DOI is not available, include the most recent working URL of the source.

Create a bibliography at the end of the paper. That facilitates automatic indexing of the paper and its citations and, thus, the visibility of your publication in EDQ. Note that referenced sources are described differently in the endnotes and in the bibliography.
