Author Guidelines

Articles must use the BRAJIS template http://www.marilia.unesp.br/Home/Pos-Graduacao/CienciadaInformacao/template_brajis_atualizado.doc

Articles must be written in proper English, Portuguese or Spanish.

The journal cannot publish papers with poor writing, misspellings, and/or grammar mistakes.

Only occasional and minor errors can be allowed. Authors are responsible for the translation, style correction and costs.

Papers must be original and written by the author(s).

Do not include repetitive statistical data or lists in the body text. Use tables or appendixes for this purpose.

The editorial team is entitled by the author to make small changes of style and layout to adequate the paper for the journal.

The author knows that any violation of copyright, intellectual property laws and codes of ethics are unacceptable and forbidden in this journal.

All chapters, including notes, references and appendixes must be sequentially numbered according to the following format "1.1. ", "1.2. ", "1.2.1. "... Do not number abstracts, notes, acknowledgments and references. Do not use more than three levels of hierarchy for the headings.

Assign headings with the apply style option. To take off the automatically-generated number in the “Notes” and “References” chapters, use the backspace key.

Do not use underline, bold or uppercase in the text. Uppercase must be used only in orthographic convention and acronyms. Do not use spaces or periods in acronyms.

Italics must be used only to highlight terms written in other languages and bibliographic titles.

Figures can be included only if necessary (please do not illustrate the paper with too many webpages without a clear purpose).

Be careful if you generate images by utilizing the Print Screen key because these images usually result in poor quality.

In the text body, each image must have an indicative caption below, beginning with the word "Figure", a correlative number and a period (for example, "Figure 1. "). Use for this caption the style “Caption”.

If figures are wider than a column width, please include them at the end of the document in the “Appendixes” section.

Tables must include below an indicative legend beginning with the word "Table", a correlative Roman numeral and a period (for example, "Table I. ").

If figures are wider than the column width, please format them or include them at the end of the document in the “Appendixes” section.

Tables must include an indicative caption beginning with the word "Table", a correlative Roman numeral and a period below (for example, "Table I. ").

If the table is wider than a column width, please include it at the end of the document in the “Appendixes” section. Specify in the text between brackets: (Table n, in appendix).

For the table heading use the style “Table-Heading”, and, for the text of the cells, the style “Table-Text”. For table caption, use the style “Caption”.

Explicative notes must be exceptionally used only.

Please do not use the automatic function of the word processor. Insert a reference in the text body manually with a sequential number in brackets and include a "Notes" section at the end between the last section of the body and the reference section.

For the notes section use the style “Notes”.

Numbered and foot bibliographic notes are not allowed, these must be referred at the "References" section.

Web pages must be cited as references, and cannot be just included as notes.

In-text citations must include the surname of the author, the year of the paper, and, if necessary, the page number between brackets.

When convenient for style and writing purposes, the name and surname of the author can be placed outside the brackets.

If two authors have the same surname, use their second name or name initials.

If two or more papers by the same author have the same year of publication, use sequential letters beginning with 'a' after the year to distinguish them.

If there are several subsequent references, put them into the same brackets separated by a semicolon if they are by different authors, and by a comma if they are by the same author.

If you include a literal citation use double quotation marks (“”) at the beginning and end of the quote.

For example: "This theory is defended by several authors (Gallego, 1975; Christian and Chan, 1993) […]". "According to John Smith (1993, p. 24) […]". "Problems with the replication of the experiment have been encountered (Ismalin, 1994a, 1994b; Ismalin and Alonso, 1997)".

If the quote is longer than two or three lines, please use a different paragraph with the style “Quotation”. If you are omitting any part, include three dots between brackets (ellipsis) to indicate the omission […].

Bibliographic references must be arranged alphabetically at the end of the article, in the section called "References".

Please, use the style “References” for the format. References must follow the ISO 690:1987 standard with a punctuation as close as possible to the abbreviated ISBD (although removing blank spaces before period, comma, semicolon and colon).

References to web pages must be included in this part, not in the body of the article or in the 'Notes' section. Include every in-text citation used in the text in the 'References' section.

Do not include in this section references or further readings that have not been used in the body of the article (It is not a bibliography section).
