Form and preparation of manuscripts


Articles should be organized in the following order:
-Author note: the author’s name, organization and e-mail address should be sent in a separate file, to be added to the article after acceptance. In order to ensure an anonymous and objective evaluation, the body text should avoid including information that might lead to the author’s identification. References to former works should be made in the third person. In the same way, acknowledgements and references to research projects or academic meetings should not be included in the file accesible to the referee(s).
-Abstracts and keywords: Articles should be headed by an abstract of a hundred (100) words at most and five (5) keywords. In both cases, authors are requested to send an English and a Spanish version, no matter the language in which the contribution is written.
-Body text: Times New Roman 12 pt., 1,5 spaces. Greek should be in Palatino Linotype. Quotations included in the main text should be put in double inverted commas. Longer quotations should go in a separate indentated paragraph, in Times New Roman 11 pt. Foreign words should be italicized. Quotations of classical texts should include a translation, excluding brief quotations or isolated words.
-Footnotes: Times New Roman 10 pt., single-spaced, without indentation. Bibliographical references should only include brief text-references, as follows: author’s last name, in small capitals, year and page numbers, in brackets.
Maranini (1994: 24). 
Barchiesi (1997: 213).
For abbreviations of classical works, please follow Liddel, H.J., Scott, D.D., Greek-English Lexicon and Glare, P.G.W., Oxford Latin Dictionnary.

Please write the author’s last name and inicials in small capitals, titles of books and journals in italics, and titles of articles and chapters in double inverted commas. Only publication date and city should be given. Journals should be referred to by their full titles or by the abbreviations used in L’Année Philologique.
