Editor Responsibility: The manuscripts are evaluated by the editorial committee with contributions from at least three external reviewers familiar with the subject matter. The authors may suggest names of the possible reviewers. The identity of the reviewers is confidential, unless they choose to disclose their names. The ultimate responsibility for decisions rests with the editorial committee.
Evaluation and Publication Process: The evaluation process takes between 5 to 7 months at a minimum. Once the manuscript has been received and registered, it is sent to external reviewers who evaluate it following procedures set out by the journal. A manuscript can be accepted with or without revisions. In the first case, the manuscript is returned to the author to be corrected and then returned to the editor within a 90 day period, including shipping. The authors must indicate clearly the changes they have made and clearly explain those that they did not heed. Once the corrections have been received, the editorial committee will deliberate and decide if the modifications render the manuscript suitable for publication. The authors will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their manuscript.
Author Responsibility: Authors are responsible for the ideas and empirical data included in the manuscripts, for the reliability and truthfulness of the information, for the accuracy of quotes and citations, for the rights to publish any material included in the text, and for submitting the manuscript in the required format. A manuscript submitted to the Chungara Journal of Chilean Anthropology must not be published in or presented in the same way to another publication media.
Shipping: The manuscripts must be sent to: Chungara Revista de Antropología Chilena via email to email@example.com. We require an electronic version in Word Format for Windows.
Proofs: Thesewill be sent to authors as third printing tests for correction only of typographical or editing errors. This proof must be sent back to the editor in no less than 48 hours, thus authorizing publication of the manuscript.
Offprint: The authors can purchase offprints of their published manuscripts; however these require a formal written request to the editor and payment for the printing costs up front.
2. OFFICIAL OUTLINE
2.1. Presentation and Manuscript Format: The manuscripts must conform to the following format and configuration: Letter size, with margins 2.5 cm wide. The text must be written with Times New Roman or Garamond font, size 12, double spaced and in line with the left margin (left justification).
2.2. Manuscript Divisions and Pagination: The manuscript must be paginated from the title page through to the tables at the end. It should contain the following sections that begin on separate pages: (1) Title and Título; (2) Abstract-Key words and Resumen- Palabras claves; (3) text-Acknowledgements; (4) Cited References; (5) Notes; (6) List of figures with captions in Spanish and English; (7) Figures; (8) Tables with titles in Spanish and English.
In the electronic version, the title page, abstracts (English and Spanish) with key words (English and Spanish), text, acknowledgements, notes, and figure lists must be in the same file. The tables and figures should be in separate files. The manuscript should not exceed 7,200 words, including all the above mentioned sections.
2.2.1. Presentation Page
On a new page present the abstract of the manuscript which should clearly represent the contents of the manuscript and the English version should be presented first if the text is in English and followed by the Spanish abstract (or visa versa if the main text is in Spanish). The words “abstract” should not be used - no subtitle is to be used here. This must not exceed 200 words. The abstract must be followed by key words. The key words are descriptions of the manuscript contents.
2.2.4. Acknowledgements: should beplaced at the end of the text, without starting a new page, before the cited references. This must be left justified, in italicized letters, followed by a colon that is not italicized (Acknowledgements: …). Here is where you mention all the institutions and people that supported, economically, intellectually and technically the preparation of the manuscript. It is recommended that you include the evaluators whether they remained anonymous or not.
2.2.6. Notes:Start a new page (see 2.5).
2.2.7. List of figures and figures: In the paper version, the list of figures goes after the notes, starting on a new page. In the electronic version, the figures must not be included in the main manuscript Word file. Figures must be placed in a separate file. It is required that the text of the figures is in both English and Spanish, with the translation placed below the language used for the main text (see 2.6).
2.2.8. Tables and their respective titles: Start a new page. Tables must not be included in the main manuscript Word file. Tables must be included in a separate file. The design of the tables must be simple, with limited number of columns, to facilitate the printing. It is required that the text of the tables is in both English and Spanish, with the translation placed below the language used for the main text (see 2.7).
2.3. Text Elements
2.3.1. Titles: The main title is the name of the manuscript and it is to be placed on the presentation page, with size 12 fonts for letters, capitalized, in bold and centered. Others are primary, secondary and tertiary subtitles. The primary subtitle must be in 12 font, in title case (capital letters for the first letters of main words), with bold letters, centered, without leaving an extra line between the subtitle and the text which follows.The secondary subtitles must be in 12 font, in a sentence format, with bold letters, justified left and without leaving an extra line. The tertiary subtitles are written with 12 font, in a sentence format, without bold letters, italicized, justified left and without leaving an extra line.
2.3.2. Use of italicized letters: Apart from the tertiary subtitles the italicized letters are only used for scientific names and words different from the original language of the manuscript. Latin expressions of common usage such as, et al., ca, v. gr., sensu, locus, loci, etc must not be used with italicized letters. Proper pronouns and personal titles should not be italicized either, even when these are in a different language from the manuscript.
2.3.3. Use of Capital/Lower case letters: An initial capital letter is used for proper pronouns, mountains, rivers, countries, specific archeological and geographic areas. (Examples: Andes, Mesoamerica, Andean South Central area, Central Andes, Amazons). Also written with a capital letter is the initial name of a phase, period, culture, type, etc. Example: San Miguel phase, Archaic period, Chinchorro culture, Polished Black ceramics. Words such as phase, period, and culture should follow with lower case letters. Write in lower case letters directional, topographic and general geographic terms (e.g. southeast, north coast of Peru, river Lluta, valley of Elqui). The directional terms are only in capital letters when they are abbreviated (e.g. NE, S, W). For Spanish, in the case of oeste or west, the abbreviation should be written with the letter “W” so as not to be confused with the number zero, 0.
2.3.4. Common abbreviations are written the following way “for example” e.g., years before and after Christ and before the present BC, AD and BP. For BP “present” refers precisely to AD 1950. For texts in Spanish, use a.C., d.C. and a.p. respectively.
2.3.5. Hyphens: Are not used in compound words (e.g. Preceramic, Post Classic, Precolumbian, infrastructure, intrasite, intersite, interaction, sociocultural, agropastorial, etc.).
2.3.7. Numbers: Cardinal numbers are expressed with words if the number is between zero and nine (e.g. three ceramic fragments, eight sites). For numbers above nine cardinal numbers should be used (e.g. 53 lithics, 14 sites), however, these will be written out when they are found at the beginning of a sentence (e.g. “Ten projectile points were found…”). The numbers with more than three digits have a comma (e.g. 3,200 AD, 1,450 masl (meters above sea level) or msnm (metros sobre el nivel del mar in Spanish)). The ordinal numbers are always written with words (e.g. first, tenth, hundredth), except in the case of centuries (e.g. IV century). It is recommended that official nomenclature for archeological sites be followed (e.g. Az–14; 02-Tu-001).
2.3.8. Dates: Dates are written in the following ways: 320 years; August 7, 1953; Century III, fourth millennium, during the decade of 1950s, during the fifties (not during the 50s, nor the decade of the 50s). Radiocarbon or thermoluminescence dates published for the first time must follow the rules given below. For other dates a reference should be given for where they are published. Remember that in English, AD is placed before the number (AD 1900), and BC or BP after the number (1900 BC or 1900 BP), except when reporting calibrated radiocarbon or thermoluminescence dates, since these abreviations all follow the number (see below).
Radiocarbon Dates: Radiocarbon dates that are not calibrated are sited directly and expressed in years before present (“BP” in English or “a.p.” in Spanish). Do not convert them to BC/AD. Use the following order and separate the information with commas: (1) absolute date, (2) sigma = 1s, (3) laboratory number, (4) material dated, (5) add the value of d13C if it is available.
The calibrated radiocarbon date always should be identified as such. They should be expressed as a range(s) of calendar dates using the conventions “Cal AD” or “Cal BC” or in Spanish as “cal. a.C.” or “cal. d.C.” The type of calibration should be identified and if 1 or 2 sigmas were used. One should include more calendar age ranges when available and the probabilities give to each.
Thermoluminescence Dates: The TL dates should be given calendar dates, followed by sigma, and in parentheses the name of the laboratory and the laboratory number assigned to the sample.
English example: 1,350 ± 80 AD (UCTL 117).
If the manuscript includes more than three radiocarbon dates (calibrated or not calibrated) or more than 3 thermoluminescence dates published for the first time, these should be placed in a table.
2.3.9. Measures: Measurements must be expressed in Arabic or European numerals, with an abbreviated metric system, without a period and leaving a space between the number and the abbreviation (e.g. mm; 20 cm; 5 m; 13 km; 32 ha; 8 m2; 2 kg; 400 g. Note exception: 5 liters - liters is spelled out to avoid confusion between the number 1 and the letter l). Exceptions would include a general expression such as “some meters away” at the beginning of a sentence or another example would be “Eight miles to the south...”.
2.3.10. Quotations: Textual quotes of less than three lines are added to the paragraph and enclosed in double quotation marks. Single quotation marks are used only to indicate a quote inside another or if there are original quotations marks inside the quoted text. At the end of the quote indicate within parentheses: last name of the author/ year of publication/colon/page(s).
Quotes of three or more lines are separated from the text block, indented on the next line, and without quotation marks. At the end of the quote use the same method for citation as given for shorter quotes above.
Se trata de un poblado localizado en la parte alta de la ladera del cerro. La integran 106 estructuras de piedra emplazadas sobre plataformas, que incluyen estructuras de almacenaje y habitacionales. El poblado se encuentra rodeado por un muro perimetral doble. Desde este emplazamiento estratégico es posible tener completa visibilidad del valle (Guevara et al. 1988:24-25).
2.3.11. Citations in the text: Include last name(s) of the author(s) and the year (no comma between the last name and the year). Do not use the expressions Op. cit o Ibid.
Two or more references of the same author(s) in the same year:
Example: for Gonzales, Segovia and Aranguiz with two publications in 1999, the correct reference would be (Gonzalez et al. 1999a and b). The authors referred to as “et al.” must be added in the Cited References section.
Various quoted authors or references to the same author:
Example: (Mulvany 1994:190); Villagrán y Castro (1999:Table 3); Arriaza (1995:Plate 1).
When more than one page, table or figure are referred to, these are separated from each other with a comma or with hyphens when they are correlative (e.g. Nielsen 1997:343-345) and with a comma when they are discontinuous pages (e.g. Hourani 1990:69, 89-91). All the digits of the pages must be written out (e.g. 343-345, not 343-5).
Series of various volumes: The number of the volume is written with Roman or Arabic/European numerals according to the original and without spaces.
Examples: (Vargas 1997;I:48;II:65) or Vargas (1997;I:48;II:65)
Book or Journal Article:
Must indicate the printing date for the reference. Do not use “in press” in the quote of the text.
Book or Article in the press:
Must indicate some date of reference (date of submission for instance or date the manuscript was finalized). Do not use “in press” in the citation within the text.
(Guevara 2006) or Guevara (2006)
Personal communication without publication: (Juan Pérez personal communication 1986) o Juan Pérez personal communication (1986) Personal communications do not appear in Cited References section. Personal communications must be just that and not a quote of a personal communication published in another media or journal.
2.4. Cited References
References are to be written the following way: the first letter of the last name of the author (in capital letters) / comma/ first name initial with capitol letter/ period. In the next line the publication year is written followed by the title, from there the other characteristics will vary according to whether the reference is in a journal, book, chapter in a book, etc.

2.5. Notes: Notes must be written like a primary subtitle. The notes begin on a new page, following the cited references. Notes should be used sparingly and only to provide essential information that was not included in the main text, to avoid breaking the coherency of the argument with specific details. The notes must be numbered with Arabic/European characters, in Times New Roman or Garamond in font size 10.
2.6. Figures and List of Figures: Figures include maps, photos, pictures, graphics, and illustrations of artifacts. In the text they are indicated with the word figure (no abbreviation) and are numbered with Arabic/European characters strictly in the sequential order mentioned in the text.
List of figures: In a page apart, a list with the title of each figure must be included. The title must be brief and contain only essential information. Include references and authorship of the figures in case they do not belong to the authors, or if they are taken from another source.
All the figures must be original and of high quality. Electronic Versions are accepted if they have been professionally produced. The mailing of figures in electronic version will be used for the printing of the publication; however hard copies are also required (original and the copy you must send).
In the case of drawings of maps, graphics, or illustrations of artifacts, a digital design is preferred and must be printed on high resolution paper. These must be professionally produced and they are only accepted when produced in or compatible with the following computer programs: Corel Draw, Macromedia Freehand, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe illustrator. Scanned figures must be saved at a high resolution of 300 dpi, in TIF, JPG or GIF formats. Only black and white drawings are accepted, but in special cases color drawings may be accepted.
The maximum dimension of a figure must not exceed letter size paper (28 x 22 cm). Please note that the size of the majority of the figures is reduced in the printing process. Complex figures with small letters will not result in a visually clear finished product. The letters in the figures must be large enough and “clean” to be readable after their reduction. Avoid downloading pictures with much text. In maps, provide the symbol for north and a scale. A scale should be included in illustrations of artifacts as well. Figures may not include a title (titles go in the list of figures), however, all symbols used in the figures must be explained inside the figure. Titles for the figures must be in both English and Spanish with the translation following the title of the language used in the body of the text.
On the reverse of the originals must be written, without damaging the figure, the name of the author, title of the manuscript and the number of the figure.
2.7. Tables: The tables contain alphanumeric information. These are sequentially numbered in the order of their appearance in the text. Avoid the use of large and complicated tables. A table of 10 to 12 columns must be printed in landscape format. Do not insert tables in the text. These must be in separate Word files. The title of a table goes above each table. It is required that table titles be in both English and Spanish with the translation following the title of the language used in the body of the text.
