All contributions must be presented on a diskette (using Word for Windows). All
articles must have a summary of the content in Spanish, or an abstract in English or a
résumé in French.
These summaries must be between 10 and 15 lines.
In the
summaries in both languages, the key words or descriptors must be indicated to
facilitate identification of the theme. All originals must also be accompanied by a brief
professional résumé of the author, living contact details (address, telephone number,
email address, etc.) Original documents which are not selected for publication will not
be returned.
Documents sent for publication in the section “Studies and Research” will be
examined and evaluated independently by two different people (blind judges).
Articles will normally only be accepted in Spanish. Exceptionally, however,
articles will be accepted in French or English and will be published in their original
version. In these cases, a summary in Spanish will be Essentials, as will the abstract or
résumé (depending on the language used).
