Two abstracts are required: one in the language of the article and the other one in English, containing the title of the article in English. Length: 200-300 words.
Add 4-6 keywords after each abstract.

Articles are divided into numbered sub-chapters (1, 1.1, 1.1.1). Each of them shall have a heading (including Introduction and Conclusions).

For long quotations (3 lines and more), use the font size 11. They shall be separated from the surrounding text with a free line (before and after the quotation) and they shall not be placed in quotation marks.

The authors are referred to in the text according to the following models:

Footnotes shall be used for comments only, not for the references.

The general bibliography will appear at the end of the article. It will contain all and only the works cited in the article. The bibliography, with items listed alphabetically, will follow APA style. You will find detailed reference examples for journal articles, books, edited book chapters, online media and other types of resources at Textual Works.

The APA style shall be modified for the language of article as follows:

In becomes Dans in French and En in Spanish, Ed(s) becomes Éd(s) in French, & becomes et in French and y in Spanish, 2nd ed. becomes 2e éd. in French and 2a ed. in Spanish, etc.). Analogical adaptations should be done in other Romance languages.

Add the author's postal address at the end of the article (in the language of the author's country, i.e. Czech, Polish, German, etc.).
