Papers submitted to Cadernos de Etnolingüística should be emailed to: moc.liamg|sonredaconte#moc.liamg|sonredaconte. Authors are asked to submit:

  1. A PDF version of the article
  2. The version of the document used to generate the PDF (e.g. Word, RTF, or LaTeX)
  3. Any accompanying audio or video files the author wishes to include

In the message accompanying the submission, please supply:

  1. The names of all authors
  2. Their institutional affiliations
  3. Specification of the corresponding author with their email address
  4. An abstract of 100-150 words
  5. Five keywords identifying the paper’s subject matter.

Note that articles may be written in Portuguese, Spanish, or English, and that correspondence with the editors can also be carried out in any of these three languages.

Cadernos de Etnolingüística is able to publish audio or video files associated with articles. If an article is accompanied by audio or video files, please ensure that these are referenced clearly by filename in the text of the article so that the editors and reviewers can refer to them as needed. Permanent links to media files will be implemented in the final stages of production of accepted papers.

Manuscripts are reviewed anonymously by at least two external reviewers. For this reason, authors must not use their own names in a manner that identifies themselves. In particular, authors should cite their own work in the third person, rather than the first person, and acknowledgments and personal communications should be omitted in the review version of the manuscript, and replaced with placeholders like “Acknowledgments” or “redacted”. References to the author’s own work in the References section may be left under the author’s own name.

Formatting instructions for submission

Submissions for review may be formatted in any standard manuscript style, as long as they are clearly laid out and conform to the specifications given below. Papers that do not meet these specifications will be returned to the author for reformatting before being sent out for review. Once a manuscript has been accepted for publication, authors will be asked to prepare a version of their paper that conforms specifically to the Cadernos do Etnolingüística stylesheet for final submissions.

There is no absolute limit on article length, but longer manuscripts are likely to be reviewed more slowly, and one’s over a certain length may be recommended for publication in the Monografía series.

All manuscripts must meet the following formatting specifications:

Papers must be prepared using a 12 pt serif font (e.g. Times New Roman), left-aligned, with 1.5 line spacing used for main body text (single spacing should be used for examples, tables, and figures); page margins must be at a minimum 1 inch/2.54cm on all sides. Please use a Unicode font for all non-Latin characters (e.g. non-Latin IPA symbols).

Pages, examples, figures, and tables must be numbered consecutively to allow the editors and reviewers to refer to specific material in the paper while writing reviews. Authors should use footnotes, and all figures and tables should appear in the manuscript in the location where they should appear in print.

Authors should ensure that their data are presented in a uniform and standard way, following the general conventions of the field. Forms included in in-line text as linguistic data must be italicized; if they are words in a language other than the primary language in which the article is written (Portuguese, Spanish, or English), they must be followed immediately by a gloss enclosed in ‘single quotes’: “La palabra pankotsi ‘casa’ ilustra el uso del sufijo alienador.” All examples of more than a few words must be interlinearized and presented as a numbered dataset, following the Cadernos do Etnolingüística style for the formatting of interlinearized linguistic examples [add link].

Authors must cite the source of any linguistic data that are not the result of their own original fieldwork. Data from published sources must include a reference to a complete bibliographic entry in the list of references and a page number or other unique static locator.

The paper must contain a complete list of abbreviations used in examples and discussion, enumerated at the end of the paper.

The paper must contain a complete list of sources cited, given at the end of the manuscript (rather than citations placed in footnotes); only references actually cited in the paper should be included in the list of references.
