Preparing the text

Author(s) name, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation must be included in the submission form. The text must not include data that would allow the identification of authorship, otherwise it will not be considered for publication.

The writing of all submissions must follow the style guide established in the criteria of the University of Barcelona ( 

ARTICLES. Papers included in the Monographic and Miscellaneous sections should be between 4.000 and 7.000 words in length and should have a descriptive and meaningful title appropriate to the paper submitted. They should include five keywords and an abstract  of 150-250 words reflecting the structure of the article, i.e. introduction, corpus and methods, analysis, discussion and conclusion; this is known as a structured abstract. The title, abstract and keywords must be in the language of the paper and in English; if the text of the contribution is in English, the second language may be Galician, Portuguese, Catalan or Spanish. 

-In case the article is accepted for publication, if applicable, a note will be included just before the bibliography cited section, specifying the acknowledgements and the source(s) of financing. In addition, in the digital edition, the source(s) of funding must be indicated in the metadata of the article, field "Collaborating organisations".  

-In papers with multiple authorship, the names of the authors may be listed in order of relevance in relation to the creation of knowledge and, in the event that the paper is accepted for publication, the specific contribution made by each author may be indicated in a note before the bibliography cited.   

REVIEWS. All texts included in the Reviews section should be between 1,500 to 2,500 words. They should have a title and, following, the complete information on the book reviewed. Name and institutional affiliations should be included at the end.

FOOTNOTES. These should be as short as possible. Solely bibliographic notes will not be accepted.

TABLES AND FIGURES. These should be incorporated at the precise location in the text. In addition, copyright free images may be included in a separate file, in print quality (in .jpg format).

FORMAT OF QUOTATIONS IN THE TEXT OF THE ARTICLE. Reference to bibliographic sources in the body of the text always follow the author-year system (author’s surname first followed by year of editions and, if necessary, the page number after colon).


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.
