Instructions to authors


Scope and policy


All articles sent to be considered for publication in ENFOQUES must be original and unpublished and they cannot be sent simultaneously to other journals or editorial organizations to be published.
The manuscripts are peer reviewed by a member of the Scientific Advisory Board or another expert on the subject area, according to the specialty or orientation of the article. Since ENFOQUES has adopted the systems of anonymous peer review, the identity and other information that would identify the author will have to be written on a separate paper, including the author’s full names, institutional affiliation, title of the manuscript, complete address (including e-mail) and the résumé with publications, academic degrees, occupation and other basic information you may consider relevant.

The results of the peer review process will be informed to the author/s. The results may be the following: (a) the article is accepted without modifications, (b) the article is accepted with minor modifications, (c) the article is accepted with major modifications, (d) the articles is not accepted.
