Scope and policy
The editorial policy of the journal is to publish academic articles on the domain of epistemology of social sciences, following the protocols of scientific journals.
The area of interest is the philosophy of social science, conducted by philosophers and social scientists, of any theoretical or methodological perspective, without discrimination.
The audience is the academic world interested in the domain of epistemology of social science.
Papers submitted for publication must be original contributions. When appropriate, the article should mention the research project funding to which it belongs.
Open Access and Copyright
The journal does not charge authors to submit articles nor once accepted. Readers can access their content for free. All articles are published under a Creative Commons cc-by license. The authors always maintain the copyright of their published articles and, therefore, maintains its unrestricted publishing rights.
The magazine uses DOCODE (docode.cl) software, created by academics from the University of Chile, to detect plagiarism in the proposed articles. Secondarily uses other software in their free versions (plagium, plagiarisma).
When to send papers
The journal receives articles at all times, i.e., the author should not wait for the next issue, but submit the manuscript as soon as possible. The journal has no special numbers and does make calls to publication.
Papers are refereed by peer reviewers from different Latin American universities (which have generally published in the magazine), in the double blind system. That is to hide the author's identity to the reviewer, and the author does not know who will be the academic or academics who will review their article.
Since the journal is well known in its area, it receives many papers, taking on average three months for evaluation.
The director first receives the article and makes the decision to send it for reviewing, reject it or ask for modifications before sending it to evaluation.
The basic criterion for selection is that the article addresses the problems of epistemology of social sciences. The experience of the magazine indicates that some academics send articles of philosophy, but of issues that are not related to the social sciences, as well as academics who sent the results of their research or projects in the social sciences, but their focus is not epistemology, which they are not oriented either to the purpose of the journal. The journal, put it in some way, it is in the dialogue of philosophy with social science and, therefore, both domains must be present in the articles.
Upon review of the peer reviewers, and if this is positive, the editorial team works with the author on possible modifications for later publication.
The magazine occupies the system of immediate publishing articles, that is, does not expect to complete a number, but first publishes articles and, when it reaches the closing date, gather all articles published at that time.
