Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

Standard Format of the articles

We accept articles in *docx, *.doc or *.rtf format, not longer that 30 standard pages (1800 signs per page), written in Spanish, English, Portuguese or French. The submission should contain the title (also in Spanish) and names of authors as well as their institutional affiliation, postal address and a brief CV.

Number all manuscript pages starting with the title page as page 1, do not use tabs.

Every paper for publication must be preceded by a title of the work, name of the author (s), indicating his/her title and affiliation and e-mail address (also the postal mail - if the author wishes to receive the  courtesy copy of the Journal issue).

E-mail addresses will appear in the article footnotes.


The title of the article – in addition to the title in the language in which it is written, the article must be presented in English (or Spanish for the articles in English).

It is required that the article is accompanied with at least two summaries, one in the language of the article, the other in English (in Spanish if the article is in English). The summary should be not longer that 200 words and should also contain 5-7 keywords in respective languages. The keywords should be separated with commas.

Keywords must be separated by commas.

The use of the italics will be reserved for the titles of the cited works, as well as for the terms in foreign language. To highlight some concept or idea the author will use quotes.

Reference System: The version of the APA reference system will be followed. This is the “surname system (date)”, which has to consistently be used within the text. It is enough to put the surname(s) of the author(s) in the general references followed by the date in parenthesis. If the precise reference from a textual citation is available, it is added after the date on the respective page.

For example: (Rojas, 1992: 5-6) o (Bacon, 1959) o (Rojas, 1992; Rodríguez, 2001).

Bibliographical references: A list of bibliographical references has to be included at the end of the article´s text that contains all of the references and only the citations within the text. References should be presented with all of the data required according to the APA methodology.

For example:

Monographs: Zea, L. (1978). Filosofía de la historia latinoamericana. México: FCE.

Articles: Calvo Buezas, T. (1978). Hispanos en Estados Unidos y cultura. En: Las culturas hispánicas en los Estados Unidos de América. Madrid: Asociación Hispano-Cultural Norteamericana, pp. 34-45.

Internet: is similar to quote as an article. Quote from the website with the exact link.

Diagrams and tables (in black and white only) should be sent in the graphic format compatible with MS Windows or in *.jpg.
