Title, abstract and keywords should appear in the language of the article and in English, and, if necessary, in Galician, Portuguese, Catalan or Spanish.

Os textos revisados aqui apoiam a ideia de que «o português falado no Brasil será uma preocupação permanente do autor» (Ribeiro 1994: 274).

Para Ribeiro (1994: 274), «o português falado no Brasil será uma preocupação permanente do autor».

A relación de Cunqueiro co castelán probablemente foi moi influenciada polos feitos históricos:

De todo iso só pode deducirse que foi o estalido da guerra civil, que non o resultado, aínda que tamén, o que conduciu a Cunqueiro a utilizar o castelán como lingua literaria. E, con todo, uns poucos anos despois, tras retirarlle Juan Aparicio o carné de xornalista en 1947, regresa a Mondoñedo e recupera
o galego como instrumento literario, co fin de contribuír á consolidación da prosa narrativa nesta lingua (Valls 2012: 42).

Losada (2005a: 173) proposa «una nova visió de l’anomenat psicologisme de Clarice» a la llum de les seves col·laboracions a la premsa.

Bibliographic references should be limited to works cited, specifically in the body of the article, and at the end, in alphabetical order (by the author’s first surname). If the document has up to three authors, they should appear separated by semicolon’s (;), with name followed by the forename after. If the document has more than three authors, the inclusion of et al. should follow the first author’s name. If it is a collective document by an editor, compiler, organiser, etc, the reference must begin with author’s surname and the forename followed by his/her function in brackets: (ed.), (comp.), (org.).
If the first edition is not used, it should be shown in square brackets. Electronic references follow the same norms as bibliografic quotations and at the end indicate the format (online), the date of access between square brackets and the url.
Bibliographic references should be in indented paragraphs.
