Media Ethics will edit the texts presented at the VIII Congress

The organization of the VIII Media Ethics Congress intends to publish the texts presented in the parallel sessions that will take place between July 9 and 12.

The final works must be delivered by the deadline of September 8, 2024.

Texts will be peer-reviewed and can be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish and English according to the following rules:

Author Guidelines

Length
- Full articles and interviews should be 5,000 to 8,000 words, including title, footnotes and references.

- Both the title and the subheadings should not exceed 120 characters with spaces.

- The abstract should be 200 to 300 words and keywords should be limited to five.

- The biographical note should not exceed 150 words.

Formatting
Manuscripts should be edited single-spaced on standard pages (A4), font Times New Roman, 12 pt.

Graphs and tables must be editable.

Information structure

The manuscript’s first page should include the following information in Portuguese and English: title, abstract and keywords.

To ensure blind peer review, any information that may identify the author should be removed from the manuscript.  So, a separate document (with the article's title) should contain the following information:

1) author(s) name(s);

2) biographical note of up to 150 words, complete institutional addresses (including street, postal code, city, and country), email address, and ORCID. This data will be available in the published version, and by providing it, you consent to its disclosure;

3) complete information on the affiliation of all authors, including the name of the home institution at three levels (ex: Postgraduate Programme/Department/Centre, Faculty/School and University), city and country;

4) acknowledgements (optional) should include only references to funding and, eventually, to institutions that may have facilitated access to data;

5) individual contribution of each author according to the principles established in the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (CRedit) methodology. That does not apply to works with only one author or introductory notes.

Interviews must be accompanied by a declaration of consent from the interviewee, who must validate the transcription.

Texts in Portuguese must be consistent with the new Portuguese Language Orthographic Agreement of 1990.  Furthermore, considering the differences in spelling among Portuguese-speaking countries, it is recommended that the wording specificities of Portuguese spelling in all its variants (Brazil, Angola, Mozambique...) be respected, despite the new orthography.

Style guidelines
The publication follows the APA style (7th edition).

In-Text Citations and References

- Citations should be translated into the language of the text. The original version of the citation should not be footnoted.

- Citations should be within double quotation marks (" "), in plain text, not italic. Citations of 40 or more words should be detached from the body of the text by indented tabs, in lower case and without quotation marks.

- Bibliographic references for embedded citations follow the following format: (Kovarick, 2010, p. 134).

- Expressions such as idem, ibidem, apud, op. cit…are excluded.
