Requirements for Formatting Abstracts
Abstracts of no more then 8500 characters must be sent electronically in RTF format readable by Microsoft Word and in printed form (or PDF format) using a 13-pt. Arial Unicode font, 1-1/2 line spacing, 2 cm. margins on all four sides, 1 cm. paragraph indentation, justification, and no hard hyphenation at ends of lines. Emphasized text should be marked with italics or bolding (avoid underlining and the use of all caps for emphasis). Glosses, where needed, should be given in inverted commas (single quotation marks, ‘ ’). Bibliographic citations should be given in line in squares brackets, as follows:
[first-word-of-title publication-date, volume-or-edition-or-part-number: page-number]
Use additional title words where needed to avoid ambiguity. Full bibliographic information should be included in an unnumbered alphabetized list at the end of the abstract, following the subtitle “Literature.” Footnotes should be reserved for explanatory comments (not bibliographic citations), and should be formatting at the foot of each page (not as endnotes) using the automated numbering feature supported by Microsoft Word. If your abstract requires characters not available in the Arial font, please submit all additional fonts together with your abstract (either on a floppy disk for postal submission or as email attachments). The filename of your abstract should take the form
(for example, 2_Smith_tez.rtf). If you do not know your likely section number, use “0”.
