1.1 Subsection [Times New Roman, 12, bold, left alignment and capitalize the first letter]

The text included in the sections or subsections must begin one line after the section or subsection title. Do not use hard tabs and limit the use of hard returns to one return at the end of a paragraph. Please, do not number manually the sections and subsections; the template will do it automatically.

1.1.1 Sub-subsection: Guidelines for Abbreviations and Acronyms

Define abbreviations and acronyms the first time they are used in the text, even after they have been defined in the abstract. Do not use abbreviations in the title or heads unless they are unavoidable.

1.1.2 Sub-subsection: Guidelines for Figures and Tables

Tables, figures, and graphics should be centred, numbered and accompanied by a legend. Figure captions should be below figures; table heads should appear above tables. Insert figures and tables after they are cited in the text. Use the abbreviation “Fig. 1”, even at the beginning of a sentence.

1.1.3 Sub-subsection: Guidelines for Page numbers and Footnotes

Please, do not add any kind of pagination anywhere in the paper. Avoid using headers and footnotes outside the page margins (2,5 cm of white margins).

1.1.4 Sub-subsection: Guidelines for References

The list of the references should be given at the end of the paper. Please use APA referencing style. The American Psychological Association (APA) referencing system is one of the most common in the social sciences. For those who are unfamiliar with the style, guidelines are provided at any of the following web addresses:

These url’s represent only a selection. The internet is full of custom written APA guides provided by universities for free.


Use as many sections and subsections as you need (e.g. Introduction, Methodology, Results, Conclusions, etc.) and end the paper with the list of references.
