Author Guidelines

The title Works Cited(or Obras citadas) should be centered, 11pts and bold. Then leave a 10pts space and begin your list in the following line. Your bibliography list should be 10pts, single-spaced and flushed left. Always use French indentation of your sources by 0,5 cms.

Sources usually fall within different categories: books; chapters in books, or papers in conference proceedings; and articles in a journal. However, other categories can be found too. Below you can find some examples of the aforementioned different types. Follow them strictly.
