Instructions to authors


Scope and policy


    • The  Editorial Direction will receive original submissions and review them under two criteria:
    • Formal aspects (see below) regarding length of the article, type and font size, spacing, et cetera will be assessed.
    •  Pertinence, structure and clarity will be taken into consideration. On this basis, the Editorial Direction may accept, reject or suggest changes on submitted articles. Should the latter be the case -and should the author agree-, adjustments must be made by him/her and the article resent to the Editorial Board for another revision.
    • Once works have been accepted they will be sent to two evaluators, who will be either part of the publication's Peer-review Comitee or will have been selected among acedemicians of validated expertise in the field the article deals with, and then a third that will settle what difference of opinions may arise between the former two.
    • Once evaluations have been turned in, the Editorial Board shall notify the author of the results in a single report, witholding reservations as it may see fit. During the evaluation stage authors and evaluators will have no information of each other.
    • Once the article has been accepted, the publishing date will be decided by the editorial directors in accordance to the order in which the submissions have been received and the pertinence of the topic in the general context of each issue. In every case, the author will be informed of which issue will showcase his/her contribution by the Editorial Direction.
    • Works must be unpublished and, once sent, authors agree to refrain from sumbitting them to any other publication.
    • Only one work per author will be published, individually written or in co-authorship.
    • Authors will agree to proofreading changes deemed necessary for a better understanding of the articles. These changes will not affect content in any way.
    • Authors will be accountable for the content of their sumbissions. Sources for figures, charts, graphs, et cetera, must be named in the manuscript either as a caption or among acknowledgements.

The length may include captions, charts, tables, pictures and acknowledgements .
  • first page should include: article title, name of author or authors, brief background and institutional association information. Second page should include article title, abstracts in English and Spanish and no more than five keywords in each language. From this page forth until the end of the article the name of the author should not be included and there should be no header of any kind, only page number on the bottom left of the page.
  • TEXT: Font size 10 must be used with 1.5 spacing aligned left, no word division between lines. All headings must be typed uppercase (with grammatical stresses), using no tabulation, no underlining and no bold, left aligned, two blank lines from preceding text and one blank line from following text. Subheadings must be typed lowercase bold, no tabulation, left aligned, two blank lines from preceding text, one  blank line from following text. Should it be necessary to number headings and subheadings, Arabic numerals should be used (1, 1.1, etc.). Paragraph beginnings should not be tabulated or indented and there should be a blank line between paragraphs. Text must be left aligned and there should be no word division between lines. Whatever the author may need to stress, words or expressions in other languages not currently used in Spanish (including scientific names of plants and animals) must be written in italic or cursive typeface.
  • PICTURES: charts, tables, diagrams and graphs (with their numbering, scales, titles and/or inscriptions) should be submitted as separate files in Word or Excel format, Arial font size 9, of a width no larger than 15 centimeters.  Photographs and/or maps should also be submitted as separate files in JPG format. These should preferably be black and white, 300 dpi or pixels per inch resolution. Their size should not be smaller than 4 centimeters and should not exceed 15 centimeters. Readabilty of information proportional to size should be taken into account. In the main body of the article the location of each of these pictures should be indicated using the reference figure 1, 2, 3, etc. located in the place where the corresponding picture would be inserted, including a blank line before and after. For image files (JPG), inscriptions should be included in the main text under the corresponding reference. In every case, source of information must be mentioned.
  • NOTES: should be consecutively numbered using Arabic numbers and placed at the end of the text (footnotes are not allowed). Notes should not indicate or hint at the identity of the author(s) of the article.
  • BIBLIOGRAPHY: all works referenced or quoted in the text must be mentioned in the bibliogrphy and vice versa. Bibliographical quotes will be indicated in the text between brackets including their author's last name, printing year and page(s) if necessary, using small caps for last names. Examples: (Harvey, 1985: 676-8); (Castells - Borja, 1992); (Auge, et al. 1974: 120-140). Should more than one work of the same autor be quoted, and these published on the same year, alphabetical indications will be added to the publishing year. Example: (Weber, 1985a: 711-8). Corresponding bibliography will be included at the end of the text in the same font and size and in the following order: last name first in uppercase followed by given names of the author or authors in lowercase, both in bold, followed by the printing year between brackets, and the title of the work afterwards in italics for books and between inverted commas for papers, articles, theses or reports (should an article or a paper be quoted, the work or meeting whence it was taken should be specified in cursive afterwards).  Lastly, the publisher or institution responsible for publishing and year of printing should be cited.
