Form and preparation of manuscripts


Publication Norms

The MLA Manual of Style is to be used for endnotes and bibliography. No tables, graphs or maps will be published. Spanish language is preferred, and there will be not translation of articles published in another language.

Presentation Guidelines

  • Font type should be 12-point Times New Roman for the title, name of author and paper body.
  • Margins should be one inch (2.5 cm) at the top and bottom, and 3cm at the sides of the document.
  • For endnotes, font type should be 10-point Times New Roman.
  • No underlining or bold letters will be accepted in the paper body; in case a word should be emphasized, italics will be allowed.  
  • No lines or graphs will be accepted to separate notes, paragraphs, quotations, etc.
  • One space should be left after each punctuation mark.
  • First Page
    • Small letters for the title (except capitals or proper names), and no full stops.
    • Names and last names of all authors, and institutional membership on the second line, after the title.
    • One-paragraphed length abstract.
    • Keywords in Spanish and English (no more than five).
  • Paper Body
    • Double-spaced text.
    • Each paragraph will be indented with no tabbing.
    • 12-point Times New Roman font for subtitles to separate different sections.
    • Italics will be used for book titles, newspapers, journals, films, words in another language or words to be highlighted.
  • Citation
    • Four-lined length quotations in the paper body should be written in standard-type letters, enclosed in quotation marks.
    • Quotations longer than four lines should be arranged in a new paragraph, written in 11-point italics with no quotation marks and one space from the paragraphs above and below.
    • References to a cited text should be done in the paper body: the author’s last name, date of publication (if two or more works from the same author is cited), and cited pages (if necessary) should appear enclosed in brackets. The full text will be acknowledged at the end of the paper, in the works cited list; for instance, (Suárez 1985: 93). When a piece of work has more than three authors, just the first given name will appear in first last name format followed by ”et al” (Johnson et al. 1970: 25-26). Letters in alphabetical order will be used when citing works written by the same author with the same date of publication (Alonso 1988a); (Alonso 1988b).
  • Endnotes
    • Endnotes should be numbered consecutively. The first one will acknowledge people’s contributions or any other information about the nature of the paper. It is advisable not to include unnecessary notes.
  • Works Cited List
    • Every cited work in the paper has to be in correspondence with the bibliography.
    • Bibliography references should be alphabetically ordered according to the author/s’ last name.
    • Italics should be used for the title of books followed by the number of volume, place of publication, name of the publisher, and date of publication. When there are two or more works by the same author to be cited, they should be listed chronologically by date of publication. In case there were many references to the same date, works should be listed alphabetically by title adding a small letter
    • Standard-type letters and quotation marks should be used for pieces of articles. Reference sources should be written in italics followed by volume number, issue number, publication date enclosed in brackets and number of pages.
    • When there are two or more authors just the first author’s name should appear reversed in the works cited list; for example,  Borges, Jorge Luis, Adolfo Bioy Casares (and not, Bioy Casares, Adolfo).
    • If the article is unsigned, the title should be given first. ‘NN’ or ‘anonymous’ entries should be avoided.
