INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Scope and policy
Cuadernos de Historia receives original articles that meet the highest standards of quality and ethics for publishing, which are also applied in every stage of the reception, evaluation and edition procedures. We also accept unpublished documents that are relevant for historic research, and reviews of books that have been published within the three years that precede the printing of the biannual issues.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
Liabilities of the editors
Selection of articles: The works must be sent to the Director of Cuadernos de Historia, adhering to the ethical and editorial norms herein established. Only those that fulfil the formal requirements will go through the peer review, once the Editorial Committee establishes that the manuscript meets the high quality and ethical standard requirements.
Plagiarism and other types of behaviour that violates said ethics will be penalised.
The publication wil not have charges for the author.
Confidentiality and transparency regulation: The Director and the members of the Editorial Committee are prohibited of revealing the opinion contained within the manuscript or divulging and discussingits content with a third party.
Neither will they be able to use for their own research the material contained in the articles that weren't approved for publication, unless they possess the written consent of the author or authors.
No-discrimination regulation: The articles won't be discriminated against based on race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, nationality, political ideology or religious beliefs of the author or authors, who commit to certify that the material is original and that it hasn't been sent simultaneously to other media.
Liabilities of the evaluators
Selection and confidentiality regulation: The evaluation will go through a double blind arbitration of two members designated by the Editorial Committee that don't belong to the same institutions as the author, refraining from sending them to anyone who has any type of clash of interests.
The specialists will submit their reports within six months. In case of discrepancy between them, a third member will arbitrate them. The magazine board will inform the results only to the author.
Objectivity regulation: In case the evaluator or evaluators suggest changes based on reasonable arguments and criticism, including sources relevant to the topic that haven't been considered, the author or authors will be able to check the manuscript following the suggestions of the evaluators.
Publishing deadlines regulation: Only once the appropriate changes have been made, the director will communicate to the author the publishing date. The editors will also have the right to include the articles in the issue they esteem most convenient, as long as it doesn't exceed two years, and to apply any formal amendments to the original text that they consider necessary.
Intellectual commitment regulation: The author or authors are responsible for the content and opinions expressed in the text, which don't necessarily represent those of the editors.
The dates of reception and approval for publication will be detailed within the articles.
Liabilities of the author or authors
Originality regulation: The author or authors are responsible for presenting an original manuscript in which they will attempt to confirm the hypothesis of the investigation, clearly identifying the results and details of the sources or references used so that other researchers may resort to them or verify their context.
Authorship regulation: In the case of collective works, the main author will guarantee that all those who contributed significantly to the publication appear as co-authors and that said contributors have checked and approved both the final version of the manuscript and its presentation for publishing. They will assure, as well, that the work is personal and that it hasn't been plagiarised.
Non-ethical behaviour recognition and sanction regulation: If a breach of the ethical regulation is discovered, the Editorial Committee will inform the academic community by means of divulging the letter addressed to the author or authors condemning their proceeding. The sanction includes the inability to present a manuscript to Cuadernos de Historia again.
Transparency regulation: Any type of research financing must be recorded by means of a footnote with an asterisk (*) located at the end of the title.
