The latter should be on recent publications of interest to the journal.
    2. Send an original on paper and two copies, written in MS Word, and a copy on a floppy disk or via e-mail.
    3. Each article should be headed with the Title and the author’s full name. Include an abstract in Spanish and English of no more than 200 words and 5 keywords, also in Spanish and English.
    4. The title page should include the title, name of author(s), a short CV of each author (including the following details: professional title, professional registration or license number where relevant, institution the author belongs to, academic position, postal address and e-mail address).

Authors will be notified if their work has been accepted or not. If modifications are suggested, these will be sent to the author, who must advise acceptance of the modifications within five days, in which case the author must send the definitive version within the deadline agreed between the author and the Editorial Committee.
