Scope and policy

Teología y Vida is a publication of the Department of Theology of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Four numbers are published annually. The publication has as its objective the diffusion of research and thought in the area of theology and related disciplines. The magazine is aimed at people of university level or similar interested in theological and related topics.

Form and preparation of manuscripts

The Teología y Vida journal publishes unedited articles that meet the criteria of scientificity, originality and depth. These must be submitted for publication in digital format in Garamond font size 12; for bled citations, Garamond 11; and for footnotes, Garamond 10. For Greek and Hebrew fonts, use the UNICODE format, which is not altered when editing the work. The maximum extension is 10000 words in letter size to a single space. Articles should come with an abstract of 10 to 15 lines. The bibliographic references of the works must be in footnotes. Articles will be accepted in other languages besides Spanish, such as English, French, Italian and German. The author must submit his or her full name, position and the institution in which he or she works.

For the complete structure, see

Evaluation procedure: The Editorial Committee requests evaluations of the work by two professors of recognized competence in the discipline that the article represents. If the two evaluators both give a positive response, the article is published. If one is negative, a third evaluator is asked to decide. Eventually the author may be required or given the recommendation to make certain corrections (in any case, the author will be informed of each step of the procedure, while the evaluators’ identities will be kept anonymous).

Sending of manuscripts

Manuscripts may be submitted through the journal's website by registering as a user (role: author). Articles appearing in Teología y Vida may be published later. A written request to the Editorial Board is required. After authorization, the article may be published with full reference to its origin (author, journal, year, volume, number of pages).

The opinions expressed in the articles and published works of Teología y Vida are the exclusive responsibility of their respective authors.

Articles and abstracts of issues published since 2000 are available at:
