Scope and policy


Ciencia, Docencia y Tecnología is a bi-annual, multidisciplinary scientific journal, published in paper and electronic forms. Its mission is to contribute to the knowledge and development of Argentina and Latin America. It publishes original research articles, scientific and academic communications, book reviews and documents on science, technology and society. The online edition is an open source publication.
Admission of articles:
All articles should be submitted to anonymous peer review by peers of recognised prestige, with the exception of articles submitted for publication along with Final Reports of UNER R&D projects, which include evaluators known to the public. The referees’ decision is final. The refereeing processes are determined by the number of articles on the waiting list and the availability of referees. The editorial board of the journal will inform authors on the processes of evaluation and publishing, where this is the case. The Board reserves the right to bring forward or postpone the inclusion of articles which, at the close of publication, have been approved without observations by at least two referees, to better organise the content of each issue. Additionally, the journal reserves the right to make any corrections to style and editorial changes it considers necessary to improve the work. Any unforeseen cases will be resolved by the Journal Board with the scientific editor.
Authors’ Rights:  The Universidad Nacional de Entre Ríos (UNER) requires authors of admitted articles to extend authorisation of publication to the printed version and relevant electronic version.



Form and preparation of manuscripts


General formal guidelines: Presentation in Spanish, on A4-size pages; single-spaced; Arial 12 type. Include on a separate page: Title, Abstract and Keywords (all this also in English), author(s), organization and country, details on the origin of the article and a contact e-mail. The file should be word-processed, with no type of format, indents or automatic notes. Acronyms should be spelt out the first time they appear in the text; e.g., the first time write: Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET), and each time after: CONICET.
Length: For Main articles: up to 25 pages including notes, bibliographical references and graphic material; abstract of up to 150 words and up to 5 keywords. For Communications: up to 15 pages; abstract of up to 120 pages, and up to 3 keywords. For Book reviews: up to 5 pages, including technical information about the work reviewed.
Citations and References: Do not include citations at the foot of the page; they should be numbered sequentially and be included at the end of the text, before the References.
*) For articles on Humanities and Social Sciences: Use the Harvard system with the variations of style adopted by this journal, observing the following examples:
-When reference is made in general to a work, write the author’s surname, year of publication and page number in parentheses (Gutiérrez, 2004) or in the case of two authors (Rodríguez & Sánchez: 2004); if there are more than two authors write (Sánchez et al., 2003).
-When the author is mentioned in a sentence, the year of publication is indicated in parentheses: As seen in Rodríguez (2004),...
The author of textual citations (in inverted commas) should be indicated in the same way, but adding the number of the page the citation is taken from:
...”the series of genuinely existent relationships at a given moment” (Baranger, 1997:4).
If two or more works by the same author published in the same year are mentioned, separate the first one mentioned as (Sánchez, 2004a), then (Sánchez, 2004b) and so on.
In Bibliographical references include only works cited in the text. Order alphabetically by author, and chronologically (in the case of various works). The surnames of authors should be written in uppercase, with only the initials of the first name; book titles and journal titles in bold. Examples:
-For books:
GRIZE, J. (1990). Logique et langage. París: Ophrys.
DOGAN, M.; PAHRE, R. (1993). Las nuevas ciencias sociales: la marginalidad creadora. México: Grijalbo.
-For articles in journals or chapters of books:
GIMENEZ, G. (2003). El debate sobre la prospectiva de las ciencias sociales en los umbrales del nuevo milenio, en: Revista Mexicana de Sociología, año 65, núm. 2:363-489. México: UNAM.
MORLEY, D. (1998). Debate mediático: interpretando las interpretaciones de las interpretaciones. En: CURRAN, J. et al. [comps.]. Estudios culturales y comunicación. (pp.447-454). Madrid: Paidós Comunicación.
-References to personal correspondence and unpublished work should be mentioned as personal correspondence, written in parentheses.
-When the number of authors of a citation is greater than six, in Bibliographical References indicate the names of the first six followed by et al.
-For references to web sites indicate the full URL of the work and date consulted:
ROMERO, E. (2005). Estudios sociológicos contemporáneos, en Sociología general, núm. 35, México: UNAM. <http://www.iis.unam.mx/biblioteca/principal.html> [22 January 2006.]
*) For articles on Exact and Natural Sciences: Use the Vancouver system for style variations adopted by this journal as indicated for Humanities and Social Sciences. In the text, the citations should appear with Arabic numerals in parentheses, corresponding to the number with which they appear in the bibliography.

Graphic materials: In the printed version only black and white photography and graphics in a single ink can be published. The use of colour in the same materials is only possible in the electronic edition. Black and white photographs should be clear and have good contrast. Pictures, charts and graphs may be submitted as laser prints, on official size or smaller (adjusted to the journal size), accompanying the electronic file on a CD or sending it by e-mail.


Sending of manuscripts


The submission of articles with the request for publication may be done by e-mail with an electronic file or by post with the file on a CD. In the submission note or e-mail, addressed to the Journal Director, indicate the title and author of the article submitted, stating that the material is original and unpublished and has not been submitted simultaneously for publication at another journal. State whether the author has any conflict of interest.
