The articles, which are published in the Monographic or Miscellaneous sections, will have a maximum of 40,000 characters including spaces, footnotes, figures/tables (to be inserted in their corresponding place) and bibliography.
The reviews/notes, which are published in the Final section, should not have more than 10,000 characters including spaces, although exceptionally larger extensions may be admitted (for example, reviews of two or three publications dealing with the same subject).
Regarding layout, styles and format, articles and reviews/notes must be written in accordance with the Template for articles and the Template for reviews/notes, which can be found at the end of this webpage, in the section of downloads, as well as on the platform of Revistas UVa, respecting margins, spacing, fonts and typefaces, etc.
Articles must include a title (and, if appropriate, a subtitle, differentiating both), an abstract not exceeding 100 words (indicating objectives, methods or perspectives and conclusions of the article) and up to five keywords. The title, the abstract and the keywords will be presented in Spanish and English (and additionally in the language of the article, if it is neither of these), avoiding the use of acronyms, abbreviations and symbols. If applicable, the first page will also include the corresponding acknowledgements, identifying the people or institutions that have supported the work, provided some technical assistance or economic or material support.
The body of the article should be structured into sections and, where appropriate, sub-sections, which should never immediately follow the section heading. They should be numbered consecutively in Arabic characters (1, 1.1., 2, 2.1, 2.2.). It is recommended, as far as possible, to follow the IMRAD structure (Introduction, Methodology, Results and Discussion), and it is essential in all cases to include a section on conclusions. The use of capital letters or the emphatic use of quotation marks, bold or underlining should be avoided as far as possible, while italics should be used only for foreign words. Clarifications should be enclosed in parentheses or long dashes and, if they are of a certain length or are collateral to the speech, in footnotes, which should be numbered consecutively with superscript Arabic characters. Acronyms and abbreviations, except those of absolutely recognized use, should be avoided if possible, specifying their meaning in any case (by means of parentheses, after their first appearance in the text).
Tables and figures (illustrations, graphs, etc.) must be inserted in their corresponding place within the text, accompanied by a caption starting with the designation ‘Table’ or ‘Figure’, as appropriate, with sequential numbering in Arabic characters. The caption must contain all information necessary to understand the table or figure and the source (or that of the data used to compose it). Tables shall be drawn up in the same fonts and style as the text, adjusting the font size to ensure correct reading. Figures must be of enough quality, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. References to tables and figures within the text should be enclosed in parentheses.
Reviews/notes will first include the full details of the publication, event or project that is reviewed. They will be composed preferably in the form of a plain text (without sections), avoiding as far as possible the use of footnotes, citations and bibliography.
