INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Scope and policy
Reviews or articles may be submitted in Spanish. Articles must be the result of research projects and must include the project number or code, the project name and the funding or sponsoring institution.
All work submitted must be original and unpublished material. Texts that have been previously published or that are being reviewed for publication in another journal will not be considered.
Articles must comply with the basic requirements of the publication guidelines (ASA Style Guide) at the moment of submission. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in the return of the original paper. All authors must fill out two forms: a conflict of interest waiver and a declaration of the work’s originality and release of publishing rights.
All articles will be sent to two anonymous reviewers who are not part of our university but specialize in the topic addressed in the paper. In this “double-blind” review, neither the author nor the reviewer will be identified. The reviewer may: a) accept the article as is; b) accept it subject to changes; or c) reject the article. If the reviewers do not unanimously accept the article (either as is or subject to change) or reject it, the work will be sent to a third external reviewer. The reviewers will have a maximum period of one month to complete the evaluation.
The editor or coordinators of the issue will send the reviewers’ comments and suggestions on to the author, so that he or she may proceed to make the corrections and changes required for publication. The author will have two weeks from the date that the evaluation was sent to make these changes. The corrected, final version of the article should then be send to the editor or coordinators of the issue for publication. The author will receive a certificate or letter stating that the manuscript has passed the evaluation process and publication is pending.
Following the process of correcting and modifying the original text and prior to publication, the journal reserves the right to make minor amendments to the manuscript that under no circumstances will change the content or central ideas of the text. These edits relate to matters of format as well as spelling corrections, clarification in writing or any other change associated with the style guide.
The editorial board of the journal may reject an article without submitting it for review by external evaluators, if they think that the work does not conform to these standards or does not comply with the objectives and editorial policy of the journal.
Authors will be informed of the acceptance or rejection
of their articles within eight months of the date that their submission
