Author Guidelines

The ANGLISTICUM Journal follows the APA style of referencing (6th edition) examples of which are given below.

In the text, a reference to a publication is by the author’s name and date of publication and page number if a quote is included, e.g. (Gutiérrez, 1991, p. 14) or Gutiérrez (1991, p. 14) ‘concludes.......’ as the case may be. They should be cited in full if less than two names (e.g. Gould & Brown 1991) and if more than two authors, the work should be cited with the first author followed by et al. (e.g. Gould et al. 1991).

All works referred to or cited must be listed at the end of the text, providing full details and arranged alphabetically. Where more than one work by the same author is cited, they are arranged by date, starting with the earliest. Works by the same author published in the same year are ordered with the use of letters a, b, c, (e.g. Domínguez, 2003a; 2003b) after the publication date to distinguish them in the citations in the text.


GENERAL RULES

1) Authors’ names: 

    Use only the initials of the authors’ given names. 

    No full stops and no spaces are used between initials. 

2) Titles of works: 

    Use minimal capitalisation for the titles of books, book chapters, and journal articles. 

    In the titles of journals, magazines, and newspapers, capital letters should be used as they appear normally. 

    Use italics for the titles of books, journals, and newspapers. 

    Enclose titles of book chapters and journal articles in single quotation marks. 

3) Page numbering 

    Books: page numbers are not usually needed in the reference list. If they are, include them as the final item of the citation, separated from the preceding one by a comma and followed by a full stop. 

    Journal articles: page numbers appear as the final item in the citation, separated from the preceding one by a comma and followed by a full stop. 

    Use the abbreviations p. for a single page, and pp. for a page range, e.g. pp. 11–12. 

4) Whole citation 

    The different details, or elements, of each citation, are separated by commas. 

    The whole citation finishes with a full stop.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS

Soft copy of the manuscripts should be submitted in MS Word format only. The paper should conform to the style and format of the ANGLISTICUM Journal.

Manuscript title

The title should be concise and descriptive and preferably not exceed twenty words. Unless absolutely necessary, scientific names and formulae should be excluded in the title.

Address

The author’s name, academic or professional affiliation, e-mail address, and full address should be included on the first page. All correspondence will be only with the corresponding author (should be indicated), including any on editorial decisions.

Abstract

The abstract should precede the article and in approximately 200–300 words outline briefly the objectives and main conclusions of the paper.

Introduction 

The introduction should describe briefly the area of study and may give an outline of previous studies with supporting references and indicate clearly the objectives of the paper.

Materials and Methods

The materials used, the procedures followed with special reference to experimental design and analysis of data should be included.

Results

Data of significant interest should be included.

Using Figures, Tables, and Graphs

Figures need to be clean and free of extraneous details. Data must be plotted accurately. The grid scale, if any, must be proportioned correctly. The lettering must be large and dark enough to read and compatible in size with the rest of the figures. All figures must be prepared according to the same scale. The terms in a figure must be spelled correctly and all abbreviations and symbols explained in a figure legend must be consistent with those in the figure caption. The figures must be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and all figures must be mentioned in the text and integrated into the paper.

Tables should have short descriptive titles, be self-explanatory and integrated into the text. They should be concise and not larger than a Journal’s page. Values in tables should include as few digits as possible. In most cases, more than two digits after the decimal point are unnecessary. Unnecessary abbreviations should be avoided. Information given in tables should not be repeated in graphs and vice versa.

Graphs need to be carefully chosen for your data and the relationship that you want to show. Some good advice regarding the construction of graphs is to keep it simple. Remember that the main objective of your graph is communication. If your viewer is unable to visually decode your graph, then you have failed to communicate the information contained within it.

Discussion

The contribution of the work to the overall knowledge of the subject could be shown. Relevant conclusions should be drawn, and the potential for further work indicated where appropriate.

Footnotes, spelling and measurement units

If footnotes are used, they should be numbered in the text, indicated by superscript numbers and kept as brief as possible. The journal follows the spelling and hyphenation of standard British English.

Acknowledgements

Appropriate acknowledgments may be included.

Copies 

Two copies will be sent to the corresponding author’s address. Authors who require more copies may obtain them at cost provided the Editor is informed at the time of submission of the manuscript.
