SOUTH-SOUTH COOPERATION IN LATIN AMERICA
AND THE CARIBBEAN
- The Editorial Committee will review the documents submitted and select the ones to be published.
- Papers will be accepted in Spanish, English, French, or Portuguese.
- All papers must be accompanied by the author’s personal details (name and nationality), a brief academic and professional résumé, and contact information (email and telephone number).
- The length of papers must not exceed 4,000 words. The latter should be submitted along with an abstract of no more than 200 words.
- The submission of the paper to INTAL for possible publication entails a commitment by the author not to submit it simultaneously to other journals.
- The papers must be accessible to a wider audience and not only targeted at a specialist community. It is, therefore, advisable to avoid mathematical formulas.
- Should it be necessary to include tables and/or graphs in the text, these must be sufficiently clear, without abbreviations and with specific indications of the units referred to. Decimal figures as well as numerical symbols must be expressed in the language in which the paper is written (e.g. “1,00”, if it is in Spanish; and “1.00” in English). Notes and sources must be included at the foot of the tables and/or graphs. Any table, graph, or diagram included in the Word document must also be attached in Excel format to enable complete editing. Any such tables and graphs should, where possible, be included on separate pages at the end of the paper, clearly labeling where they are to be inserted in the text.
- The Integration & Trade Journal reserves the right to make any editorial changes it sees fit.
- Prior to publication, the authors will be sent a “galley proof” in PDF format. Only minor corrections to the content will be accepted (editorial changes are not permitted), within a timeframe established by INTAL. If the authors do not submit their comments within this timeframe, the PDF file will be considered to have been accepted for electronic publication as it stands.
- All abbreviations are to be clarified, at least upon first use, in the text, and also in the bibliography, tables, and graphs. Any notes should be kept as brief as possible, and the inclusion of lengthy notes is discouraged. Notes will be numbered in succession throughout the work, using Arabic numerals. Any bibliographical references in the text must include the author's surname, year of publication, and any relevant page references: for example, (Herrera, 1974, pp. 10-12). Bibliographical references are not to appear in footers and/or endnotes, but are to be placed in alphabetical order at the end of the text as follows: (a) author’s last name and first name; (b) year of publication; (c) title of the article in quotes and, in italics, the name of the journal or title of the book where the article was published; (d) volume and number of publication; (e) city; (f) publisher; (g) date of publication. Examples:
Herrera, Felipe. 1974. América Latina: experiencias y desafíos. Buenos Aires: BID-INTAL.
Ons-Indart, Carlos. 1970. "El principio de reciprocidad en el tratado de Montevideo" in: Derecho de la Integración, Vol. III, N° 6. Buenos Aires: BID-INTAL. April.
