Form and preparation of manuscripts
References: All works quoted in the text should be listed at the end of the article, according to the following sample:
Details about translations, editions, reprints, etc., should be mentioned:
For reprinted works, the details about the original edition should be given, but the pages can be just those of the reprinted edition:
Books containing articles are cited separately:
Please follow carefully the punctuation convention in the samples above, and be as complete as possible regarding the facts of publication.
Quotations: The author (date) convention should be used for quotations internal to the text:
Footnotes should not be used for normal quotations; these shoud be incorporated in the text, using the author (date) convention. For all articles or books quoted, the date used in the text should be the one of the original publication, and not the one of the reprint, even if the page references are to the reprint. Thus, an author referring to Putnam's "Mathematics without foundations" (originally published in 1967), using the second reprinted edition in Putnam's book Mathematics, Matter and Method (published in 1979) would quote from the first page of the article in the following way: "(Putnam 1967, p. 43)".
Short quotations may appear just enclosed in double quotation marks. Longer quotations should appear as indented material, preceded and succeeded by a line space, and should not be enclosed in quotation marks. The information about the source of the reference should appear as part of the indented material, after the full stop, according to the following sample:
Quotation of Classical Works: For classical works, authors might prefer to use an abbreviation instead of the date. For example, an author referring to Kant's Critique of Pure Reason could write "According to Kant (CPR, B 43)..." or "According to Kant (KrV, B 43)...". The abbreviation used should be mentioned in the reference section at the end, as in
Classical articles might be quoted by their name, enclosed in quotation marks:
Quotation marks: Single quotation marks should be used for mentioning a word or symbol, as in
For mentioning an expression within anoter one that is already enclosed in single quotation marks, please use double quotation marks as in
Otherwise, double quotation marks should be used only for quoting, or to suggest special usage (irony, etc).
Footnotes: For notes, please use footnotes (numbered with arabic numerals), and not endnotes. Quotations within footnotes follow the same conventions above.
Acknowledgement footnote: If the author decides to include an acknowledgement footnote, this should be referenced at the title, indicated with an '*' (i.e., not numbered).
Logical symbolism: Variables, predicate letters, Greek characters, etc. should be italicized.
Foreign words: Foreign words (to the language in which the article is written, of course) should be italicized.
