Form and preparation of manuscripts

(NdT: Sugiero Formatting and Style of Manuscripts)

CITATION STYLE

  • All titles including movies, poems, anthologies, paintings, movies, photography, sculptures, magazines and newspaper are written in Italics, both in-text and works cited.
  • The general way to use in-text quotation is mentioning the last name of the author, year of publication, and the relevant page number, all in braquets, such as in the following example: (Foucault, 1997:143).
  • If the author is mentioned in-text, only the year of publication and the relevant page Lumber is included in the citation, also in brackets, such as the following example: Michel Foucault (1997: 143) stands that...
  • If the paragraph is clear about which author and what article is being cited, only the relevant page number in brackets is needed: (143).
  • If two or more articles from the same author share the same year of publication, they must be ordered alphabetically and must be cited in the text as 1997a, 1997b, 1997c, etc.
  • If the quotes are extracts of less than 40 words these can be put in quotation marks. If more extensive, this must be written as a different paragraph, justified and with a right margin of 10 spaces. If the quote is used to emphasize a certain aspect, make a referencer whether it belongs to the original or not, as in the following example: According to Heidegger: Only when there is a word there will be a world; that is, a circular area, with a radius that is constantly variable, of decisions and procedures, of acts and responsibilities, and even of arbitrariness and riots, falls and riots. And only when there’s world, there is history (1994: 27, this is our own emphasis).
  • If the reference extends for more than two pages, it can be done as the following: (288-9). This means that the reference belongs to pages 288 and 289.
  • Ellipsis in the beginning, middle or end of the quote must be written with suspension points and a space, all in square brackets:[...].

FOOTNOTES AND WORKS CITED

  • Footnotes with bibliographic references of cited texts are not appropriate. All bibliographic information must be provided at the end of the article in a list of references.
  • A footnote is only necessary to clarify a concept or a context that might alter course and the form f the article.
  • The final list of references must only include the titles that were actually quoted.
  • The citing style varies according to the nature of the work: novel, short-story, article, Internet text, video, etc. The general arrangement of the information is the following:
