The title of the article must be accompanied by a reliable English translation of it, which will appear right below the original title. The manuscript must also include an abstract and up to 5 keywords in the language in which the article is written plus an English version of those same abstract and keywords. The abstracts should not exceed 100 words.
The first line below the author’s name in the first page of the submitted paper must contain the academic affiliation of the author. If an author wishes to give acknowledgements, these should be placed in the first footnote marked by an asterisk.
After the conclusive remarks/section, the author must include a bibliography of the entries quoted in footnotes, written following these guidelines. Please notice: only elements referred to in the paper can be included in the final bibliography of the article. Bibliography must not be added to the manuscript, but uploaded on the OJS platform during the submission process, following this link (after having logged in): http://www.uco.es/ucopress/ojs/index.php/refime/author/submit/1
