Article guidelines:

– it’s mandatory to use the official template

– the maximum length of articles – studies and researches – is about 30.000 characters, including spaces (and including graphics, tables, notes and bibliography);

– footnotes, if any, should be progressively numbered, and should have only an explanatory function (no bibliographical notes);

– the different paragraphs (with bold title, no numbering) and sub-paragraphs (with italic title, no numbering) should be clearly marked by leaving one line between title and text, and two lines between a paragraph and the following title;

– to highlight text portions or foreign words, italics should be used, never bold or underscored;

– In order to ensure a Blind Peer Review:

  1. The authors of the document have to delete their names from the text, with “Author” and year used in the references and footnotes, instead of the authors’ name, article title, etc.
  2. With Microsoft Office documents, author identification should also be removed from the properties for the file (see under File in Word), by clicking on the following, beginning with File on the main menu of the Microsoft application: File > Save As > Tools (or Options with a Mac) > Security > Remove personal information from file properties on save > Save.

– all references must be done according to the APA style and carefully checked for completeness, accuracy and consistency. See http://www.apastyle.org/ or http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ for details on APA style.
