Scope and policy


CDT is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed science journal. It publishes original research papers, scientific and theoretically-based academic communications, bibliographic reviews and documents on Science, Technology and Society, either in Spanish or Portuguese.  Articles do not express the opinion either of the publishing institution or the members of the Editorial and Advisory Boards.
Review Policy
All articles that at preliminary reading appear adjusted to the journal’s aims and formal requirements will be submitted to a double-blind peer reviewed process by experts of recognized prestige. Reviewers will be appointed among specialists in each subdiscipline and theme, able to read either in Spanish or Portuguese, according to the paper’s original language. Papers submitted to sections Research and Communications will have two reviewers, a third one being appointed in case of opposite verdicts. A minimun of two Accept Submission verdicts are required for paper admittance.  Book Reviews will be evaluated only by one specialist. Authors will be informed about the results of the review; referees’ decision is final, although authors will be able to present a new  version of the paper and their arguments in case of Revision required and Resubmit for Review verdicts, in order to proceed to a second review round, and eventually to a third round. Length of the review process will depend on  the number of articles for preliminary reading and for reviewers appointment, as well as how many review rounds are required by each paper and diligence of authors themselves.
Specialists participating as Ad hoc peer reviewers in each six-month period previous to a new issue will be mentioned under their consent, without linking to the paper reviewed and regardless it finally was   or was not accepted for publication.
The Editorial Board holds the rights to make style corrections and editorial changes to improve formal quality and  to resolve any unforeseen cases.
Frequency: biannual (May and November)
