The e-rph magazine is directed to all professionals, institutions, administration centres and the general public interested in historical heritage protection.
Do to the fact that the aim of the magazine is to embrace the whole of the protection process, a series of sections have been developed corresponding to the different fields or actions that are linked to it. These sections are: Heritage Concept; Legislation; Management; Intervention; Diffusion; Heritage and Development; Citizen Initiatives; General Studies; Institutions and, finally, Bibliographical Reviews.
In each section, two types of work are developed: Studies and Experiences. The Studies aim is the analysis and general investigation over some of the protection matters, preferably with a national or international scale. The Experiences involve some specific studies over particular protection actions of interest.
The originals will be submitted in a data processing format, either by regular mail (Revista e-rph. Departamento de Historia del Arte, Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Granada. Campus Universitario de Cartuja, S/N 18071- Granada), or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The submitted contributions must be unpublished originals related to the themes of the magazine and ought to be able to fit in some of the sections mentioned above.
All works submitted, previous to their publication, will be subject to evaluation by researchers external to the magazine. The authors will be informed of the approval or disapproval of their article by e-mail.
II.- Main Text
As a general standard the text must be sent in Microsoft Office Word archive with no format (with single interlineal spacing, type of letter Time New Roman 12). If the submitters wish to present a more personal or detailed copy (structure, letter types…) an additional archive with a copy or a printed backup copy according to their preferences can be sent to the e-mail or address above.
The length of the paper depends on the type of work submitted: The Studies will be no longer, including notes an bibliographical references, than 50.000 characters (20 pages, with 35 lines per page and 72 words per line including blank spaces); The Experiences papers will be no longer than 25.000 characters (10 pages, with 35 lines per page and 72 words per line including blank spaces); The Bibliographical References will not exceed 5.000 characters (2 pages). Exceptionally, the Editorial Board may accept articles that do not adjust to these sizes if there are justified reasons to do so.
The paper must be structured as follows:
- Section of the magazine for which the article is written.
- Title: In bold and capital letters, English and Spanish.
- Author: The name must be accompanied by Academic rank and professional activity.
- Abstract: A summarized text of 50 to100 words will be submitted in English and Spanish.
- Key words: They will be submitted in English and Spanish.
- Acknowledgement: (optional)
- Text: See references in section 4
- Quotes: See references in section 5
- Authors C.V: Brief biographical data in which relevant information will be given about the lines of investigation, interests, academic and other studies and skills developed, and professional or academic rank of the author. Including e-mail address and/or the URL of the web page. The length must not exceed 10 lines and a recent photograph of the author must be included.
III.- Illustrations, figures and graphics
In order to include photographs, figures, graphics, etc. in the article, authors must differentiate the ones that will be placed within the text (and will be visualized with it), and the ones that will be placed as a link. A maximum of 10 for the Studies and of 6 for the Experiences are permitted to be inserted in the text. Their location in the main paper will be indicated through a reference in brackets properly numbered: (Illustration 1), (Illustration 2), (Figure 1) etc. The ones in Link mode (for which there is no number limit) will, as well, be properly indicated in the main text through a reference in brackets and numbered as seen before: (Link 1), (Link 2), etc.
These visual elements must come up as extra files in a separate folder. If they are photographs or maps they will be in JPEG format and will have enough quality to be published in a magazine; Figures and graphics will as well be in JPEG format. In all cases they will be accompanied by a file in Microsoft Office Word format with an illustration and link index and their corresponding footnotes that will also be sent within this separate folder.
Videos are also admitted as illustrations. They must be in flv format. The size will be: 15 stills; 320 X 240 pixels; best or high quality. Its location in the paper must be indicated in the text, as seen before, (Video 1), (Video 2), etc.
IV.- Text format
The text must be presented in simple spacing manner with one space between paragraphs. The titles and subtitles will be kept in lower case and bold letters and must not be underlined. Titles and subtitles must be separated from the text with one space.
The language used must be Spanish. Exceptionally, the Editing Board may accept papers which may be in other languages. In this case there must be an abstract in Spanish together with the original Text .
If the author includes references in the text, they can be either under quotation marks (“,”) or italics. If these should be longer than two full lines they can be placed in a separated paragraph with double spacing from the text.
V.- Quotations and references
Quotations and references must appear with their corresponding footnotes, marked in the text with subscripted numbering. It is recommended that these should only be used when it is totally necessary to reinforce the arguments of the text. If we are quoting a simple reference, that is, if it is lacking a comment, it is recommended to include it in the text through the Harvard system, for example (Llorens, 1979:30) referring to page 30 of the book referenced in the Bibliography section (that will be included in all contributions when needed).
LLORÉNS, Vicente (1979). Liberales y románticos. Valencia: Castalia.
If in the Bibliography we should find more than one contribution from the same author published the same year, they will be distinguished by a letter subscripted beside the year: (Lloréns, 1979a:30). Both last names of an author must be used to avoid mistakes in the case where two authors should have the same first name and first last name.
In the bibliographical footnotes quotations, these general standards are recommended:
- Reference to a Monograph:
GOMBRICH, Ernst H. (1992). Historia del Arte; Santos Torroella, Rafael (versión española), 15.ª ed. Madrid: Alianza Editorial.

6- Reference to electronic documents:
Electronic documents are those which are in electronic format, created, stored and spread by a computer system. Even though the norm ISO 690-2 specifies what elements must be included in bibliographical electronic quotations and establishes a compulsory order of elements of reference, we recommend the following arranging system: Author or authors, title (written in Italic if it refers to a monograph or complete works and with quotation marks for the titles of the articles or a part of a monograph), subject matter (for e-mails and press releases, type of medium (which could be: on-line, Cd-Rom, cassette, record, disk and must be allocated under quotation marks), publication data (optional), Date of revision and updating of the works and access to it (must be marked with angle brackets < > and, in all cases, explaining the type of protocol used: HTTP,FTP,TALNET,GOPHER), and the checking date (must appear under brackets).

7- If you choose to place a bibliographical index at the end of the text in stead of placing footnotes, please follow all the steps recommended above.

VII.- Reception, assessment and feedback to the authors of the articles.
In order to guarantee the quality, relevance and significance of the articles published in the journal, the received papers will be evaluated according to an expert assessment system (peer review), with the following procedure:
- The received articles will be revised, in a first assessment round by the Editorial Board, which is able to reject those articles that do not adjust to the editorial policies of the journal or do not comply with the Standards for the submission of original contributions. In exceptional cases the author could be required to make certain modifications, in order to allow the article to continue in the selection process.
- Once the article has been accepted for its evaluation, the author will be notified and the scientific review will begin using the peer review system. The articles will anonymously be sent to two different and prestigious external experts in the subject analyzed in the article. They will issue a brief, following a template in which a list of instructions for evaluation must be followed depending on the type of the article (Studies or Experiences).
- As soon as the expert briefs are received, the Editorial Board will decide what procedure to follow with the article, weather to publish, reject it or contact the author in order to modify certain aspects of the article according to suggestions given by the experts, in case the article has been accepted to be published under certain conditions. In any case, the Editorial Board’s decision will be notified and explained to the author.
- The reception and acceptance date of the articles will be included in the front page of the published article.
- The journal will keep record of all the articles received with its corresponding indication of acceptance or rejection. For confidentiality reasons, this record will not be of public access, even though it will be available on demand for researchers and institutions.
- A list of external expert evaluators will be published in the journal webpage, which will be regularly updated.
