EURALEX 2008. Guidelines for contributors
1. General guidelines
All manuscripts should be submitted by e-mail as a MS Word or RTF file to the address email@example.com. If you use any special characters or a different alphabet, you may also send us a PDF file.
IMPORTANT! All the images, tables, graphs and figures included in the text must be sent in separate files together with the original text regardless of its format (Excel, JPG, etc.). It is not compulsory to insert them into the text; you can just mention the file name.
Format guidelines for submissions
Screen captures must be done with the best possible resolution. The free screen capture program XnView is recommended.
All works referred to in the text must be listed in the reference section at the end of the article or book chapter and should follow the guidelines below.
2. Guidelines for citing documents quoted in the text
Please give complete information including the name of all authors, place of publication, publisher, etc. For articles and book chapters, please indicate page numbers. The place of publication should be written in the same language as the article itself (e.g. an article written in Italian uses Parigi; an article written in Spanish uses Londres, etc.).
Write your references following the model:
Last name, First name initial. (Year). Book Title. [optional: edition number.] Place of publication: Publisher.
When necessary, use the abbreviation for editor or edited by (ed.) or (eds.), or director or directed by (dir.) or (dirs.) after the name of the author and before the year of publication. Include the name of the first author and use the abbreviation (et al.) only when the work has more than three authors.
Title. [optional: edition number.] Place of publication: Publisher, Year.
Dictionaries on floppy disk, CD-ROM or in on-line format must be cited as electronic resources (see below).
c. Book chapters
Last name, First name initial; Last name, First name initial. (Year). "Chapter title". In Last name, First name initial. (ed./coord./dir.). Book title. Edition number. Place of publication: Publisher. Vol. Page numbers.
Please note that the language used in the reference must coincide with that of the document being referenced. In each case, use the forms: Dins (Catalan), En (Spanish), In (English), etc.
d. Articles in a magazine or journal
Last name, First name initial; Last name, First name initial. (Year). "Article title". Magazine/journal title Issue number. Page numbers.
If the magazine is numbered using volume and issue numbers, include volume number and, in parentheses, issue number.
e. Electronic resources
Last name, First name initial; Last name, First name initial. (Year). Title [type of resource: on-line/floppy disk/CD-ROM]. Place of publication: Publisher. URL [Access date: DD Month. YYYY].
When available, information not explicit in the resource but inferable through other data -such as place of publication or publisher-, can be included in brackets.
3. Poster presentation
Posters can contain any information the authors consider relevant and should not be larger that 70 (w) x 100 (h) cm (portrait orientation). We recommend using a readable font size and visual elements to make it attractive and easy to read.
