3)         Titles of paragraphs and sections are in italics, 14 pt, and introduced by Arabic numerals (normal, full size). Bold type is not allowed.

 

4)         Italics is used for foreign language words if they are not part of a quotation. Use single inverted commas (‘hello’) for emphasis.

 

5)         Quotations up to five lines are cited in quotation marks “hello”. Single inverted commas are used only if they appear in the passage quoted, e.g.: “Batman said: ‘I’m gonna stop you Joker!’”. Quotations over five lines come as block quotes (normal, 12 pt, justified) formatted as a separate paragraph, detached from the main text by blank lines; first line indention and angle brackets are not used.

7)         Footnotes: in the text, numbers are in superscript and in sequential Arabic numerals; they follow quotation and punctuation marks (e. g.: “As soon as she saw him, she started screaming”.2)

 

8)         Bibliographical references: SQ follows the Chicago Manual of Stylehttp://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-2.html
