Articles, essays and researches notes
1. First page:
1.1 Title of the article in English and Spanish (centered, in a 12-point font size).
1.2 Full name of the authors (right-aligned, followed by institutional affiliation. For example: Universidad de Buenos Aires. Facultad de Filosofía y Letras. Instituto de Investigaciones Bibliotecológicas; with postal code and e-mail of the author).
1.3 Abstract in Spanish and English (maximum 200 words).
1.4 Keywords in Spanish and English, up to five words.
2. Text: with double-line spacing, initiating each paragraph with no indentation, no tab characters, and keeping the same line spacing between the paragraphs. The text will be justified; words shouldn’t be hyphenated.
2.1 Subdivisions: For greater clarity, the different sections of the text can be separated by headings in a 10-point font size, coinciding with the rest of the text. The major headings must be written in a bold font, the subheadings in an italic font and subdivisions under subheadings in a regular font. Before each heading there must be two spaces and after just one.
2.2 Measurement units: Should be expressed according to the metric system, using abbreviations in lowercase letters with no periods included (5km, 15kg), except when unspecified amounts are used.
2.3 Numbers: Numbers over three digits should be written with periods (8.000, 152.000) and decimals with comma (12,5).
2.4 Abbreviations: Use only if it deems necessary. Abbreviations and acronyms of extended names of institutions are accepted (in uppercase letters, with no spaces or periods). The first time they are mentioned they should be written entirely, with the acronym between brackets. For example: Asociación de Bibliotecarios Graduados de la República Argentina (ABGRA).
2.5 Words in a foreign language: They will be highlighted with italics.
2.6 Verbatim transcriptions: In case there are textual quotations over two lines of extension, they should be in a separate paragraph with single-line spacing, left and right indentation of 1 cm, and with no quotation marks.
2.7 Citation in text: Bibliographic references should conform to the author-date system within the text. The author's surname, the year of publication and where appropriate the pages cited are to be indicated between brackets. For example: (López, 1985: 93), (González y Rubio, 1990: 110-111), (Rodríguez, 1990; Pérez, 1992). Works with more than three authors should be referred to first author, followed by "et al.” (Johnson et al., 1970: 25-26). When there is more than one work from the same author published in the same year: (Alonso, 1988a) (Alonso, 1988b).
To quote a work that has been divided in volumes, the volume’s number follows the year of publication (Waterman 1990, 2: 3-7). If only one volume is included in the bibliography, the number is not necessary in the quotation.
In case of paraphrase, indicate the year of publication between brackets: Smith (1950).
3. Notes: They should appear numbered consecutively at the end of the article. The acknowledgments of the work or any other clarification considered necessary should be collated in the first note. It is recommended to use notes sparingly.
4. References: Citations should follow APA rules and ChicagoB:
Bibliographic references should conform to the author-date system. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). If possible, provide the full name of the author or editor. The references should be listed alphabetically considering author’s surnames. If several pieces of work by the same author are quoted, they are to be ordered chronologically by the year of publication. If the author has two or more works published on the same year, lowercase letters (a, b, c) are added to the year. For example:
Briones, Carlos. 1987 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Briones, Carlos. 1988a xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Briones, Carlos. 1988b xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Briones, Carlos. 1990 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
