Authors Instructions


Texts will be written in Windows, Microsoft Word, B5 format, Times New Roman, 11, one line spacing, left-right alignment.

Margins: left: 3 cm; right, up, down: 2 cm.

The articles must be written on an even number of pages and should not exceed 12 pages (including the bibliography).

The first page must contain:

  • title of the article, centered (Times New Roman, 12, bold) in upper case;
  • 3 rows below, author / author’s surname and name (Times New Roman, 12, bold);
  • 1 row below, University / affiliation, under the author’s name (Times New Roman, 12);
  • e-mail address of the author, under affiliation;
  • 2 rows below, article abstract (10-15 lines) and 5 keywords (Times New Roman, 11) (in English and French). The word Abstract is written in italics (no tab), the compound word Key-words written in bold (no tab) and the actual key-words written in italics.
  • 1 row below, the text of the article (Times New Roman, 11).

In the text of the article, titles of books, magazines, newspapers, etc. will be written in italics. The titles of chapters, articles and short writings, such as poems or short stories, will be written in quotes.

The footnotes will contain only the supplementary information; the bibliographic references will be listed in the BIBLIOGRAPHY at the end of the article.

The chapters will be numbered with Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3 etc.) and the subchapters will be hierarchically numbered inside the chapter (1.1, 1.2, etc.).

The pages shall not be numbered.

Quotations in the text:

Each quotation should be placed between quotes (typographic “…”) followed by the author’s reference, the date of publication, and the page from which it is extracted (Author’s name, year of publication: page).

e. g. “According to Desiderius Erasmus, chief architect of Renaissance humanist educational theory, the main hope of a state lies in the proper education of its youth” (Bate, 2008: 126).

If the name of the author is previously quoted in the text on the same page, only the date of publication and the pages will be placed in brackets: e. g. (2008: 126).

If the title is mentioned in the text immediately preceding the quotation, only the pages should be indicated.

Quotations or examples exceeding three lines will be inserted one row after the article text, without quotation marks, at two tabs away from the left margin (Times New Roman, 11). The final punctuation is preceded by the parenthesis. The subtraction of a passage from a quote will be indicated by three points in square brackets.

The bibliographic list of the cited works will be at the end of the text (not in the footnotes), one row below from the last line of the text, after the word BIBLIOGRAPHY (Times New Roman, 11, bold).

The bibliography should include all the documents explicitly quoted in the text.

The bibliography should be organized strictly in the alphabetical order of the authors, then chronologically, then by title. Each reference must end with a full stop. For references, the following rules will be met:
