Every paper submitted for publication must contain the following:

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 quotes should be used.

Reference System: The version of the APA reference system will be followed. This is the “surname system (date)”, which has to consistently 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, for example: (Bacon, 1959). If the precise reference from a textual citation is available, it is added after the date, for example: (Rojas, 1992: 5-6).

Bibliographical references: A list of bibliographical references has to be included at the end of the article and contain all the references used in the text. References should be presented with all of the data required according to the APA methodology, for example:
