Instructions to authors


Scope and policy


Estudios Socioterritoriales welcomes contributions on topics of Geography in all its fields and of social sciences overall.

It is required that the submitted works are unpublished, original and that have not been sent to other journals simultaneously. All articles are checked by the editorial board, which determines the thematic relevance and publication compliance. Failure to observe these rules, the article is returned to the author to make the appropriate changes.

The works that meet the above requirements will be subject to an evaluation process by two (2) academic peers (specialists) under double-blind review, ensuring the confidentiality and anonymity of both referees and authors.

Evaluators are selected for their expertise and make their assessment based on a form. The possible results are: a) adopted in its present form, b) approved with modifications c) disapproved.

In case of dispute, the editorial board shall appoint a third referee (also anonymous), who have no knowledge of instances for which the work went. Once we receive his/her evaluation, the editorial board will decide to publish the work or dismiss it.
