Revista Española de Micropaleontología considers original manuscripts of international rank dealing with any micropalaeontological aspect. If they are consistent with the instructions given below, papers will be sent to at least two referees.

Revista Española de Micropaleontología

TEXT:Articles should be written in Spanish or English. Other languages may occasionally be accepted (with abstracts also provided in Spanish and English). Typescripts should be submitted on a good-quality paper of International A4 size and prepared on a word processor. Authors writing in other than their own native language are requested to have their manuscripts thoroughly checked linguistically before submission to the Editor.

Title page should include the name(s) of the author(s), affiliation(s) and the e-mail address(es). In case of more than one author, please indicate to whom the correspondence should be addressed. The title should be short but informative, with indications about the fossil group, the age and the geographic area. It should not include the names of new taxa.

A concise abstract of no more than 300 words should summarize results of the paper and must mention all new systematic names. Abstract should be written in English and Spanish. Also provide 4 to 6keywords placed beneath the abstract.

In the sistematic work, the level of the highest taxon is at the discretion of the author, but must always be accompanied by authority and date. Example:

Order FORAMINIFERIDA Eichwald, 1830
Family THOMASINELLIDAE Loeblich & Tappan, 1984
Genus Thomasinella Schlumberger, 1893
Thomasinella punica Schlumberger, 1893
Use italics rather than underlining for genus/species names.

Keep tables few and simple. Plan them so that take up the entire width of the printed page (180 mm) or the width of one column (85 mm). Captions are to be typed separately.

References in the text should be cited with the name of the author (in lowercases), followed by the year of publication. Use ampersand ('&') for two authors and 'et al'. for more than two. References should be listed at the end of the text in alphabetical order of authors' names; journal and book titles are written out, not abbreviated. Examples:

Bengston, P. 1988. Open Nomenclature. Palaeontology, 31, 223-227.

Bolli, H., Beckmann, J.P. and Sanders, J. 1994. Benthonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy of the South Caribbean Region. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 408 p.

Müller, A.H. 1979. Fossilization (Taphonomy). In: Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology (Eds. R.A. Robison and C. Teichert). The University of Kansas Press & the Geological Society of America, Boulder, 2-78.

ILLUSTRATIONS:Drarwings, diagrams, photographic text-figures and plates should be compiled on separate sheets and numbered according to their sequence in the text. Good quality illustrations, ready for reproduction, should be not larger than double the final size. When reduced they must not exceed the type area of a page. Plates and photographic text-figures should be submitted at publication size. Typewriting is not acceptable on text-figures. Illustrations should be referred to in the text, and their placement should be indicated in the left-hand margin of the text.

SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPT:Manuscript should be submitted in triplicate (original plus two copies) to the Editor. All copies should include high quality copies of all the figures. Submission of an article is understood to imply that the article is original and unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. After acceptance and last corrections of the manuscript, text should be sent as computer files with indication of name and version of the word processing program, the type of computer on which the text was prepared and the format of the files.

PAGE PROOFS:One set of proofs will be sent to the corresponding author, to be checked for editing. The author is not expected to make changes or corrections that constitute departures from the article in its accepted form.

REPRINTS: Fifty reprints of each article are supplied free of charge. Additional reprints can be ordered on a reprint order form, which will be sent to the corresponding author upon receipt of the accepted article.
