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 footnotes, 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.
1. 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.

Keywords in Spanish and English (no more than five).
2. Paper Body
Double-spaced text.
Each paragraph will be indented with no tabbing.

Italics will be used for book titles, newspapers, journals, films, words in another language or words to be highlighted.
3. 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 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, abbreviated title 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. 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” (Eco et al. 25-26).

7.1. Every cited work in the paper has to be in correspondence with the bibliography.
7.2. Bibliography references should be alphabetically ordered according to the author/s’ last name.
7.3. 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 alphabetically
