Documents WITHOUT AUTHOR INFORMATION should be in Microsoft Word format, in a single space with symmetrical margins of 2.5 cm and paged. The total length of the documents should not exceed 7,000 words, including bibliographic references, notes and annexes. The footnotes of the documents should be numbered in ascending order.

The format of the text will be Arial 12. Under no circumstances shall underlining or bold type be used. The headings, numbered according to the scheme indicated in the model (1., 1.1., 1.1.1., 2...) shall be in Arial 12 format with verses, as included in the model (do not use capital letters). If you want to highlight a sentence or word in the text, it will be in italics. For decimal places the comma (in the Spanish texts) will always be used, dot (in the English texts).

The first page of the document will include the title of the work in both Spanish and English, the full name of the authors, their institutional affiliation and e-mail addresses, an analytical abstract in Spanish and English (about 100 words approximately), keywords in Spanish and English (between 2 and 5 words), and JEL classification (two-digit) (see model). Authors' names and personal references should not appear in the rest of the text, as they may make it easier for reviewers to identify the author. For the same reason, self citations should be avoided in the version of the article to be submitted for evaluation; they can instead be incorporated into the corrected version of the article once the evaluations have been completed.

The tables, graphs and figures included should be placed into the text in an orderly manner and with the references of the sources of origin. Each of them must be preceded by a title (Arial 12, verses), indicating the type (table or graph) accompanied by a number and ordered from smaller to larger. The font size for graphics and tables will be Arial 10 and if colours are used, please use grayscale and differentiate the lines with different symbols or strokes, as the copies are printed in black and white. The lines of the squares will be black and 0.5 point thick. The editing of all graphics and tables must be original, so it is generally not acceptable to include a graphic or image taken from another document. These tables or graphics must also be sent separately in PDF format.

Mathematical equations included in the text must be numbered. They will be edited with any equation editor, although MathType is the most recommended. Equations will be written in Arial size 12 and italics. All mathematical formulas, along with any other symbols that appear in the text, should be sent in PDF format.

Bibliographical references will be placed at the end of the text, with French indentation, in alphabetical order of the authors. References that have not been cited in the text should not be included, and all quotations from the text should appear in bibliographic references. The book style will be as follows: Surname. Comma. Name initials. Year of publication in parentheses. Two points. Title of the book in italics. Comma. Editorial. Comma. Place of publication. Comma. Date of first edition, if applicable, in brackets. The style for articles will be as follows: Surnames. Comma. Name initials. Year of publication in parentheses. Two points. Title of the article in quotation marks. Comma. Title of the journal in italics. Comma. Volume and issue of the magazine. Comma. Start and end page.
