All contributions must be presented on a
diskette (using Word for Windows). All articles must have a summary of the
content in Spanish, or an abstract in English or a résumé in French.
These summaries must be between 10 and 15 lines. In the summaries in both
languages, the key words or descriptors must be indicated to facilitate
identification of the theme. All originals must also be accompanied by a brief
professional résumé of the author, living contact details (address, telephone
number, email address, etc.) Original documents which are not selected for
publication will not be returned.
Documents sent for publication in the
section “Studies and Research” will be examined and evaluated independently by
two different people (blind judges).
Articles will normally only be accepted
in Spanish. Exceptionally, however, articles will be accepted in French or
English and will be published in their original version. In these cases, a
summary in Spanish will be Essentials, as will the abstract or résumé (depending
on the language used).
Original texts must be typed according
too the following criteria:
Texts must be typed on document size A4, on one side Orly,
and, if possible be in Times New Roman, 2 Cpi, spacing 1.5. The length of
the article must be between 20 and 30 pages, approximately. We recommend
that you use the template designed by the REEC (Revista Española de
Educación Comparada- Spanish Journal of Compared Education), which is
set up ready to receive text. This template can be found on the web page of
the Sociedad Española de Educación Comparada (http://www.sc.ehu.es/sfwseec/normaspub.htm).
The title of the article (in capital letters) and the
name of the author(s) (indicating the institution represented) must appear
on the covering page of the article. Following this will be the body of the
text, with corresponding footnotes, if appropriate. Next will be the
bibliography, followed by a summary in Spanish and English or French. This
is the part which should have “palabras clave” in Spanish, “key words” in
English or “Mots Clés” in French. Lastly, we expect to see the
professional résumé of the author with the corresponding contact details.
If there are footnotes in the article, these should be
highlighted in the text in superscript and in successive order. Footnotes
should be used to clarify points in the text but should not be used for
bibliographic references, which must be placed at the end of the text.
Footnotes must be in Times New Roman, size10 Cpi, single spacing.
Bibliographic references, which appear at the end of the
text, must follow the following format:

possible, and must certainly never be used in article titles or epigraphs.
If acronyms are used, the first time they appear, they must be in
parentheses, preceded by the full name to which they refer. They
must not be separated by full stops.
Diagrams and tables must be used sparingly due to the
printing difficulties and costs. However, when necessary, the must be clear
and detailed and inserted in the text in the correct place. As it is not
possible to publish in colour, any Graphics must be presented in black and
white or in grey tones.
If time permits, proofs will be sent to the authors.
These proofs must be corrected and returned within the stipulated
timeframe. Once this time has elapsed, if the proofs have not been
returned, it will be taken to mean that the author accepts them as final
version. Corrections may not be substantial modifications to the
