References to article/papers should include- (I). The name and initials of the author(s) (followed by a comma); in case of an edited work, the name and initials of the editor (followed by a comma) and ed (followed by a comma); (II) Full title Italicized, with capital initial for all prominent words (followed by a comma); (IV).

    For Example :


    Lingaraja Gandhi, Connecting the Postcolonial. (New Delhi:  Atlantic  Publisher, 2006), pp. – 10 – 12.

    Articles in Journals:

    Sanjay Kumar, « L’ironie dans Mourir à Bénarès » , Caraivéti, III : 1 (2019), 11–19.

     For references to a quotation from an article, full page references should be given (unless reference has already been made to the article). Thus: Sanjay Kumar, «L’ironie dans Mourir à Bénarès », Caraivéti, III: 1 (2019), (p. 14).

    Articles in English should have double quotation marks instead of guillemets. Single quotation marks should remain same in French and  English.
  6. The title of an article should be written in capitals. Below to it in right side author name should be written and initials with first letters in capital and other letters in small.
  7. The researcher whose article/research paper contains slide/image should insure that they send it properly via C.D. or e-mail.
  8. For manuscript in French & English- Times New Roman Font, Title 16 point, Author's name 12 point Italic black, Text 10 point, Folio 10 and Footnote 9 point.
  9. References:

      Use footnotes rather than endnotes. All bibliographical information must be contained within footnotes.

      1. Quotations :

      Use double quotation marks; within a quotation use single quotation marks. Quotations of longer than fifty words should be indented and single-spaced. Always preserve the spelling, punctuation and grammar of the original. All omissions from quotations should be shown as […] to distinguish them from suspension points used by the authors quoted. Check your transcription of quotations carefully.

      1. For articles in French:

      Articles in French should follow the same guidelines as those for articles in English except for the following differences :

      Guillemets should be used instead of double quotation marks; single quotation marks should remain the same as in English.

      The opening guillemet should be followed by a single hard space, and a single hard space should precede :

      • The closing guillemet
      • Colons
      • Semi-colons
      • Question marks
      • Exclamation marks

      These rules also apply to references in the footnotes of articles in French as well.

      (Articles in English, however, should follow English punctuation rules for both French quotations and French titles.)
