Translation of a quoted passage and titles

Authors presenting their translations should indicate in parentheses after the translation or in a note “my translation.” If the translation is by someone else, the name must be indicated.

In general, titles that are well known in their English translation can be cited in English first, with the original title in parentheses.

Italics are used for isolated words and phrases from another language, especially if they are not listed in a standard English-language dictionary like Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate

Figures: images are required – color or monochrome in RGB color mode. Please, set the resolution of images destined for web pages to 72dpi, and save images in .jpg or .png format only. Resolution: between 1500 and 2500 pixels wide. Don’t enlarge a small image to avoid pixelated images. The related images to incorporate into your paper should have permission from the image owner or use pictures in the public domain. You can choose royalty-free photos with a Creative Commons or similar license. Otherwise, you can create some images of your own. The editorial team will evaluate the images, and choose the most appropriate.

Captions for figures: Times New Roman 10 pt.

Works of art can be cited using this format:

Figure 1. Artist’s name, Title, Date, Medium, and support. City, Collection. License information.

But include the publication citation for where the artwork’s image was found unless you have viewed the artwork in person. Any image that is being reproduced publicly should consider adding copyright information, i.e., who owns the right to an image or if it is under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

In-text, the word figure is set in roman, lowercased, and spelled out except in parenthetical references, where the abbreviation (fig.) may be used, or the word Figure is capitalized or abbreviated in parenthetical references (Fig. 1). All text references to them should be by the numbers: “as figure 1 shows . . .”; “compare figures 4 and 5,” as Figure 2 shows, (see Figure 1), (Fig. 3) or (fig. 4).

Italics versus quotation marks

Titles of journals, magazines, pamphlets, reports, and similar freestanding publications are, like books, italicized when mentioned or cited in text or notes.

Titles of articles and features in periodicals and newspapers, chapter and part titles, titles of short stories or essays, and individual selections in books are set in headline-style and enclosed in quotation marks.

Titles of movies (or films) and movie series and of television, radio, and podcast programs and series are italicized. A single episode in a television, radio, or podcast series is set in roman and enclosed in quotation marks.

Titles of paintings, drawings, photographs, statues, and other works of art are italicized. Titles of world’s fairs and other large-scale exhibitions and fairs are capitalized but not italicized. Smaller exhibitions (e.g., at museums) and the titles of exhibition catalogs (often one and the same) are italicized.

Titles of websites and blogs mentioned or cited in text or notes are normally set in headline-style.

Peer-Review Process

Essays submitted to Art Style Magazine are subject to strict peer review and published online as soon as the two external reviewers have approved them.

The author should prepare a complete text minus any running headers of author names. It is essential to allow a blind review.

The author’s name is required on the title page and biography. For the review process, it will be omitted.

There is no problem if the author wishes to cite his or her publications in the bibliography. The works cited in the bibliography may include those of the author because without identifying the author’s name in the text, the reviewers have no way of knowing who among the authors in the bibliography is the author of the article under review.

Plagiarism

Papers submitted to Art Style Magazine are automatically checked for plagiarism; if a paper is plagiarized, it will not be accepted. All published articles go through the plagiarism scanner and must meet the ethical standards of academic conduct. If plagiarism is discovered in a published article, the plagiarized piece will be removed, and the author will no longer be able to publish in this magazine.

Research Publishing Ethics

Art Style Magazine outlines the best practice principles for our publications. We defend the best practices in our publications and follow top institutions’ directions on teaching, science, and research worldwide. With this practice, we wish to remember the fundamental values of recognition of merit and the originality of researchers and authors. Therefore, we present here the central notions of good conduct and research publishing ethics, based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the United States National Science Foundation’s policies and procedures, the European Science Foundation’s code of conduct, and the FAPESP São Paulo Research Foundation’s code of good scientific practice.

“Authorship credit should be based only on: (1) substantial contributions to conception and design, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; (2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and (3) final approval of the version to be published. Conditions (1), (2), and (3) must all be met. Acquisition of funding, the collection of data, or general supervision of the research group, by themselves, do not justify authorship” (ICMJE criteria 2000 and COPE 2020).

Art Style Magazine adheres to the recommendations of COPE and Wiley’s Best Practice Guidelines on Publishing Ethics, that state the following: “A short statement may be useful for any published article that lists editors or board members as authors to explain the process used to make the editorial decision.” In this sense, Art Style Magazine adopts strict procedures to guarantee a fair peer review and ensure the articles’ quality by considering the qualifications of its Scientific or Editorial Committee members in the fields of social sciences, humanities, and arts. 

The editor-in-chief is ultimately responsible for the journal’s scholarly content. Her responsibility is to direct the magazine’s overall strategy and verify the quality of submitted articles to ensure the publication’s overall quality (see Council of Science Editors, Editor Roles and Responsibilities, Role of the Editor in Chief).

Contributions will be well-evaluated within the principles of good conduct and the editorial ethics of research. Articles must be based on respect for basic human rights and fundamental freedoms.
