Guidelines for submission
Manuscripts must be sent as a WORD document to the following email address:
[email protected]
before January 15, 2011.
Manuscripts may be submitted in English, Spanish or Catalan. The font must be
Times New Roman size 12, with one and a half line spacing.
All the text, including quotations and footnotes, should have right margins justified.
The beginning of each paragraph will be indented 1 cm, with no blank lines between
Quotations of up to three lines will form part of the text and will appear between
double quotation marks “...”.
Longer quotations will be separate from the text, with one line spacing and a blank
line preceding and following them. The font used should be Times New Roman size
11, with a 2-cm indentation, single spacing and no quotation marks.
Footnotes must always appear at the end of the page, using Times New Roman
size 10, and one line spacing. Raised footnote numbers to indicate a footnote must
follow punctuation marks.
Foreign words will appear in italics. The same applies to words which need to be
highlighted because unusual.
Headings will appear in Times New Roman and in bold. Authors will decide on
typesizes depending on the number of heading levels involved. The first level will
correspond to the chapter’s title. The second and third levels will be preceded by
two blank lines and followed by one, unlike subsequent levels, where no extra lines
should be inserted. Authors will avoid having more than four heading levels
whenever possible. For clarity’s sake, levels should be numbered in Arabic
numerals (without a full stop after the number), as in the following examples:
Language Attrition
1.1.1 Models and Theories
Figures, diagrams, tables and other graphics should be submitted in a separate file
from the rest of the manuscript (in jpg format, tiff format, etc., with a minimum
resolution of 300 dpi). Figure captions must not form part of the figure, and should
be supplied as part of the text. The position of artwork relative to the text should be
indicated by expressions of the type “Insert Table 1 near here”.
References in the text should always be by the author's name and year of
publication, as in these examples:
(Belsey 1980: 74)
(Barker 1999; Collins 2003)
(note chronological order)
(Glenberg, Meyer and Lindem 1987: 57)
(Barker 1999, 2001)
When the authors are more than three, only the name of the first author will be
used, followed by ‘et al.’, in the bibliographical references in the text, while all the
authors will be mentioned in the bibliography section at the end.
(Du Bois et al. 1993)
References should be set out in alphabetical order of the author's name in a list at
the end of the chapter. They should be given in standard form as in the examples
