Notes on spelling


In the course of the latest rule changes of the spelling reform in 2006, there are often cases in which the unambiguity of a spelling is no longer given. It is now up to the writer to decide which variant to choose. For example, you can choose between the two permissible writing alternatives ‘zu Grunde‘ and ‘zugrunde‘. The editorial staff of the ‘Kölner Zeitschrift für Soziologie und Sozialpsychologie‘ endeavours to use uniform spelling and therefore follows the recommendations of the ‘Duden‘, which have been highlighted since the 24th edition in 2006. We would like to ask our authors to adhere to these recommendations and to accept corrections concerning spelling.
