Guidelines for SubmissionsEN BR

Instructions as for the formatting of the texts

The articles submitted to the RBEC must not have been published elsewhere and should be written in Portuguese, English or Spanish. They must range between 10-15 pages typed on Times New Roman, font 12, 1,5 spacing between lines, justified text. At the beginning of each paragraph, there must be 1,5 cm indenting from the left border (use the Tab button). Formal language should be used, and in the case of texts written in Portuguese, they should follow the new spelling rules. Since it is a periodical about Popular Music, please note that titles of songs should come between quotation marks (e.g. "Sampa"), and titles of LPs, CDs or DVDs, in italics (e.g. Dark Side of the Moon).


The title must be centralized, and only the initial letters should be in capitals (not the whole words in capital letters), in bold type and in font 14.


The name of the author(s) should come below and to the right of the title, using a 1.0 spacing between lines; on the line immediately below that one, insert the author’s email(s). The name of each author should be followed by a number referring to a footnote (format 1, 2, 3...), which will bring a brief résumé (max. 5 lines). The footnotes should be written in Times New Roman, justified text, font10 and 1.0 spacing between lines.


Two lines below the name(s) of the author(s) comes the Abstract. Use the ruler to start the text at 2.0cm from the left margin. Write the word Abstract, in bold type, followed by colon and, on the same line, insert the text, contacting 200 words at most, in font 11, italics. On the line immediately below, write Keywords, plus colon, and insert up to five of them. For texts in English or Spanish, besides the Abstract in the language it was originally written, the author(s) must include the Resumo, in Portuguese.

Introduction and Subsections

The titles of the parts that comprise the text must aligned to the left, using font 12 and in bold type (examples can be seen in these guidelines). They can be numbered or not, depending on the author’s choice. Even when the sections are numbered, the References must NOT be so.


The quotations must follow the author-date-page system (SILVA, 2001, p. 23). The author’s surname should be written in capital letters only when they come in brackets, after the text that was reproduced. In the body of the main text, the name/surname of the auhor(s) that have been mentioned should come in lower case, e.g.: “In his book, Silva (2001) defends the notion that (...)”. For quotations with up to 3 lines, one should use quotation marks, followed by the author-date-page reference in brackets. For quotations with 4 lines or more, there should be a 4cm border from the left, using font and 1.0 spacing between lines, followed by the auhor-date-page reference.

Highlights / Foreign Words / Book Titles

For a matter of uniformity, highlights and foreign words, as well as the titles of works in the Reference section, must come in italics, and not in bold type or underlined.
