Article length should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words, including abstract (200-300 words), keywords (max. 10), notes, bibliography and author's/authors' institutional affiliation(s).
Footnotes, consecutively numbered, type face Times New Roman, size 10 pt., are strongly recommended.
The main body of text should be double-spaced, with one-inch-wide margins on all sides. Footnotes are single-spaced.
