3. The Stages of PARS Publishing Process

PARS is a blind peer review journal. All research articles in this journal undergo a rigorous peer review process, based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by at least three anonymous referees.

Please contact us in case of any issues at the following e-mail address: pars@ugal.ro.

Any additional information you can find on our official site: https://www.gup.ugal.ro/ugaljournals/index.php/pars

 3.1. Footnotes

The superscript numeral used to refer to a footnote appears in the text either directly after the word to be discussed or – in relation to a phrase or a sentence – following the punctuation mark (comma, semicolon, or period). Footnotes should appear at the bottom of the normal text area, with the automatic insertion of “footnotes”. The footnotes are used for additional information on a certain matter. All footnotes must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers) on each page; the settings are as follows: the number format is 1,2,3…, it starts at “1”, numbering: “restarts each page”. 

3.2. Citations and References

References and citations should follow the APA Citation Style, 7th Edition. For more details see the Book on the matter.

 3.3. Tables

All tables must be numbered consecutively (in Arabic numbers). Table headings should be placed above the table. Leave no blank line between the table and the caption.
