Linee guida per gli autori

      Norme redazionali/Normas de redacción/Normes rédactionnelles/Stylesheet

 

Stylesheet[1] 

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Contributors should submit one file (in Italian, Spanish, French or English) to the email address amonline@unimi.it (not to the editor of the issue or to other members of the Editorial Board).
  • The file should be named with the contributor’s last name and submitted within the deadline indicated in the CfP. Acceptance of contributions submitted after the deadline is at the discretion of the Board.
  • This stylesheet refers to the MLA Handbook Eighth Edition (2016). Please refer to this handbook as you are writing your contribution.
  • After the process of peer review and editing, contributors will have the possibility to revise their own contribution (typos only). The time allowed for revision is no more than five working days after the Board has sent the edited version with comments. In case the contributors fail to meet the deadline, it will no longer be possible for them to modify their contributions.

The file should be sent along with:

  • The contributor’s bio-bibliography, maximum 600 characters long, spaces included (both in the language of the contribution and in English, including: present/past scientific activity, main research interests and publications)
  • Email address to be published at the end of the article and to be used for communications between the Board and the contributor. (The email address will be used only for the purposes hereby expressed and it will not be used by AM or by any third party for purposes that have not been explicitly stated in this document).
  • The author’s ID ORCID number, with the following format: https://orcid.org/0000-0000-0000-0000

Only for papers to be published in the sections “Essays” and “Off the Record”, and Notes within the section “Highly Recommended”:

  • Abstract (in the language of the contribution and in English), maximum 1,500 characters long, spaces included.
  • Indexation of the text (in case the author does not provide the necessary data, the Board will leave the designated space incomplete).
    • Disciplinary field
    • Keywords, max 6, separated by a semicolon (in the language of the contribution and in English)
    • Geographic area
    • Time framework
    • Date of submission (first draft), dd/mm/yyyy

 

 

FORMAT AND LENGTH OF CONTRIBUTIONS

 

Length: no less than 25,000 and no more than 40,000 characters (spaces included).

Title: 225 characters (do not end the title or subtitle with a full stop.).

 

CONTRIBUTORS ARE REQUIRED TO:

  • Indent paragraphs (1 cm), except for the first paragraph
  • Use square brackets to enclose the three dots that symbolize ellipted material in quotations, to indicate clearly that these ellipsis dots were not present in the sentence originally. Example:

Jan Harold Brunvand, in an essay on urban legends, states, "some individuals […] make a point of learning every rumor or tale" (78).

  • Insert in-text citations in the body of the paper and not in the form of footnotes, using parentheses according to the modalities indicated.
  • Short quotations (2-3 lines long) are inserted in-text in double quotation marks “ ”. Example 1:
  • In-text citations:

Mother-infant attachment has been a leading topic of developmental research since John Bowlby found that “children raised in institutions were deficient in emotional and personality development” (Hunt 358).

  • Long quotations (longer than 2-3 lines) are separated from the rest of the text, written in a smaller font size (10) and indented on the left (1.5 cm). Do not use double quotation marks. Example 2:

At the end of Lord of the Flies the boys are struck with the realization of their behaviour:

The tears began to flow and sobs shook him. He gave himself up to them now for the first time on the island; great, shuddering spasms of grief that seemed to wrench his whole body. His voice rose under the black smoke before the burning wreckage of the island; and infected by that emotion, the other little boys began to shake and sob too. (Golding 186)

 

  • For an appropriate use of punctuation, please see MLA8 1.3.7
  • Footnotes1

1 Footnote numbers should be indented as in this example (1 cm indentation). There should be no gap between footnotes. Within the main text, the footnote reference number should follow the word it refers to or a punctuation mark, with no blank space. Footnotes should not contain bibliographical references, which should be indicated in the text itself.
