The article heading will include the author’s name (in lowercase) with an asterisk at the end that makes reference to a footnote that will include the author’s position, place of work and email address. The article title will be included under the author’s name. Next, between the article’s title and the body of the text, the author will include an 8-line abstract, in Spanish and in English (in parallel columns), as well as five keywords in both languages. The abstract should clearly express the work’s objectives and results, and, if necessary, the methodology used.

Bibliographic reference footnotes will be organised in alphabetical order at the end of the article, as follows:
Articles that are not properly and precisely referenced will not be accepted. The original articles must include reference footnotes.
Literal citations (which must be relevant) will be included in italics. If these are more than four lines, the citation will be indented five spaces from the margin.
Only tables and graphics considered essential for the article will be published (photographs, drawings, maps, etc). In any case, these must be presented as originals and conveniently formatted for printing. Furthermore, they must be accompanied by a title and, if necessary, an explanatory footnote, and their sources must be clearly indicated.
The use of words in other languages will not be accepted if these exist in Spanish or may be translated into Spanish. Concerning spelling, writers must follow the guidelines included in the manual, Ortografía de la Lengua Española, (edition revised by the Academies of the Spanish Language) Madrid, Real Academia Española and Espasa Calpe, S.A., 1999.
The minimum length for the double-spaced articles is 10 pages, in din A4 format; and the maximum length is twenty-five pages. Longer articles will only be accepted in exceptional cases and will be published in one or various consecutive issues of the journal.

The manuscripts (articles, documents, revisions, debates, etc.) may be sent to the journal’s Consejo Editorial (Editorial Board) preferably by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or via the postal system (Revista de Historia de El Puerto, Apartado de Correos, 1006. 11500 El Puerto de Santa María).
The Editorial Board of The journal of the History of El Puerto will acknowledge receipt of the material using the same method used by the sender.

Once the article is definitively accepted, the authors must send the final version using one of the methods described above. If the author chooses to use the postal system, a CD copy of the original manuscript must also be included.
The authors will have 5 days to revise the printing drafts. In other words, they must verify that the drafts correspond to the originals. Neither changes nor additions may be made to the manuscript.
