Guidelines for authors
Espiral does not release or receive payments for the shipping, processing and publication of texts.
Espiral uses the APA citation style.
When citing fragments of works in another language, authors must offer their own translation to the Spanish in footnotes and specify that it is the author's translation. If it is offered a translation of another author, they must give credit, both in the citation and in the bibliography.
Latinisms: according to APA style, except the Latin abbreviation et al. Espiral does not use op. cit., id., ibid, or its form unlocked ibidem.; therefore, each repetition of a reference should be cited. Also Espiral does not use cf. or cfr., but their Castilian form.
REFERENCES IN TEXT

Author (year) considers that "citation…" (page number).
As Author considers: "citation…" (year, page number).
