The Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (RAEI) publishes the following types of contributions:
Full-length articles on all topics within the field of English studies (linguistics, literary criticism, literature, teaching methodology, and translation and interpreting).
Reviews of recently published books.
Manuscripts should be sent to the Editor at University of Alicante, Department of English Studies, Ap. 99, E-03080 Alicante, Spain, and should be prepared in accordance with the guidelines provided below. Manuscripts not conforming with these guidelines will be returned to the authors for revision.
Besides, the RAEI does not support duplicate submissions: only manuscripts offered exclusively to this Journal will be considered for publication.
The only language of publication is English.
Authors are expected to provide two printed copies of their manuscript, typed single-spaced, with wide margins, on plain, standard A4, plus an electronic version of the manuscript (WordPerfect or Word format) emailed to RAEI@ua.es.
The following information should appear on the first page: full title, author's full name, affiliation, and address (including e-mail). An abstract of no more than 200 words should also be provided.
Originals will only be returned when asking for modifications. Authors should keep a copy of their manuscripts, since we cannot return them once submitted to RAEI.
Double quotation marks should be used for citations. Single quotes may be used to draw attention to a particular item in the text. Words from other languages, and words intended to be especially emphasized, should be italicized. References in the text to publications should include the author's surname, the year of publication, and, if necessary, page numbers, as in the following example:
As Wilson (1997a: 16) suggests ...
This has been pointed out by several authors (Wilson, 1996: 123-126; Thompson, 1998)
The bibliography should be included at the end of the manuscript, on a separate page.
Author's full first names should be used unless the authors themselves customarily use only initials.
References to two or more works by the same author in a single year should be accompanied by a lower-case a, b, etc. after the year of publication, both in the reference list and in citations in the text (see examples above).
References to books should include the place of publication and the publisher's name, and references to articles in journals should include volume, issue number (if necessary) in brackets, and page numbers, as in the following examples:
Carston, Robyn (1998): "Informativeness, relevance and scalar implicature". In R. Carston and S. Uchida, eds., Relevance Theory. Applications and Implications. Amsterdam: Benjamins, 179-236.
Carston, Robyn and Seiji Uchida (eds.)(1998): Relevance Theory. Applications and Implications. Amsterdam: Benjamins.
Poyatos, Fernando (1982): "Language and nonverbal behavior in the structure of social conversation". Language Sciences 4(2): 155-185.
Endnotes should be typed as normal text (i.e., not automatically generated by the text processor) at the end of the article before the references, and should be as few and as short as possible. Their corresponding numbers in the main text should be typed as superscripts.
Current (CG Times or Times New Roman) typefaces should be used, and special symbols should be avoided as much as possible.
Authors are kindly requested to check carefully their manuscripts before submitting them. Editors reserve the right to correct, or to have corrected, non-native use of English.
Upon publication in RAEI, authors of articles will receive a copy of the volume in which their article is published and a pdf file of their contribution. The authors of reviews will also be sent one copy of the volume.
