We have been able to ascertain on several occasions during 452ºF’s three year lifespan that the translation
work that goes on behind the scenes of each publication is not an element that
we wish to do away with, in spite of all the added difficulties that it brings
to the process. [+]
Asociación Cultural 452ºF is responsible for the edition of this
journal. Our efforts have concentrated in the need to creating a
Journal that will transfer literary and artistic knowledge to the
largest number of people possible, and with the additional guarantee of
an academic scientific board to value the contents of the journal.
Therefore we chose to develop an electronic journal, committed to
linguistic plurality and supported by the creation of an international
Advisory Board with several years of experience behind them. [+]
The journal’s Editorial board is composed of twelve
members. Each of
them is at least undertaking post-graduate studies on Literature at the
The Editorial board will be assisted in the process of selection for
publication by a well-formed Advisory board. It is conformed by
well-established academicians in the Comparative Literature field, as
well as many specialists in different aspects of culture and art. Their
support will guarantee the quality of the contents. [+]
452ºF is proud to include a translation and proofreader team of its own. The creation
of this group of translators and proofreaders goes hand in hand with the commitment to
becoming a social service, which bears in mind the linguistic plurality
that characterises this world. [+]
452ºF wishes to expand the high quality of its contents into the way
these are presented. For that reason we have gathered together an
exclusive illustration and layout team. The work of its members will be
focused on making the reading of the magazine not only intellectually
stimulating, but also visually. [+]
Any researcher willing to send an original piece or work for its evaluation and subsequent publication must consider the criteria given in the Style-sheet.
Authors are kindly asked to follow these regulations. If not done, the Editorial Board might leave the paper out of the selection process.1] General matters
2] General formatting information
- - Papers must be original pieces of work and have never been published before. The scientific content must reach at least 75% of the work, and the original content 40% minimum.
- - Authors must include their name and affiliation.
- - Papers can be written in Catalan, Spanish, Galician, Basque, English, French, Italian and Portuguese.
- - The minimum lenght is 8 pages and the maximum 15, and will include an 8-10 lines summary at the beginning, both in the language of the article and in English. Keywords should also be included in those two languages.
3] Graphic elements
- - Format: the text should be written in 12 point Arial. All text should be single spaced with no tabs. The left and right margins should be set at 3. The top and bottom margins should be 2,5.
- - The title should be centered on top of the first page, 14 point, boldface type. On the following line, right-justified, should be the name of the author. Below that, the author’s university affiliation should be placed.
- - Summary: It will be placed before the body of the text and below the title, justified. The terms ”summary” and “keywords” will be highlighted in boldface. The rest of the summary will have the same format as the body of the text. There will not be more than six keywords and they will be placed on the line below, leaving a space and separated by vertical bars, with this format:
Summary || This paper sets out the possibility of using the tale of the migrating journey as an object of study
Keywords || Comparative Literature | Migration | Comparative Literature
- - If needed, the body of the text will be divided in numbered section headings, using Arabic numerals, starting with 0 (followed by period and one space) for the introduction. The subsection headings will be numbered accordingly. All section and subsection headings will be left-justified (no tabs), in boldface, 12 point, separated by one blank line and with no final period. Example:
1. History of the text
- - In the body of the text, the paragraphs in the body of the text will be separated by a blank line.
4] Notes, quotations and parenthetical references
- - Images appearing in the text will be inserted using the specific tool of the word processor. They will be in jpg format. They should be outside the body of the text, centred, and the label will be in 10 point Arial, also centred below the image.
- - Notes will be placed in Arial 10 font, single spaced, at the end of the article. The call will be placed after the word and before the punctuation marks by means of superscripted Arabic numerals.
- - Short quotations will be included within the text between angle quotes “”. Long quotations will be set in a new paragraph, in Arial 10 font, 1.5 indented and single spaced. There will be a blank line before and after the quote. Ellipsis within quotations will be marked by three dots in square brackets: […]
- - Parenthetical references will follow the author-year system within the text, indicating, in brackets, the author’s last name followed by a comma, the year of publication of the work cited, followed by a colon and a space, and the page number. E.g. (Ostrom, 1948: 452).
- - References including an entire work should omit the page number. E.g. (Ostrom, 1948).
- - If the author has published more than one work in the same year, letters in italics are added: (Ostrom, 1948a; 1948b).
- - If the same work is referred to on many occasions, the author’s name can be left out, provided there is no ambiguity. Example: (1948: 452).
- - The works cited page will be included after the endnotes, in font 11, placed in alphabetical order following this system:
- • Books: surname of the author in capital letter, followed by the initial of the name, year of publication in brackets, title of the publication in italics, place of publication, publishing house and volume in Roman numerals (if any).
- · If there are two or more authors, they will be
separated by a semicolon and behind the last author “and” will be
written; if the number of authors is excessive, the name of the first
author plus the formula “et al." in italics can be used.
- · If
a compilation based on several collaborations is referred to, “various
authors” will be used, including, after the title, the name of the
work’s compilator or editor.
