Instructions to authors

 

Scope and policy

 

The section “Articles” contains unpublished work sent to the journal Prismas for publication. Selection for publication passes through the following steps: first, the articles are reviewed by the members of the Consejo de dirección (Editorial Board) of the journal, in order to ascertain that they are pertinent to the thematic content of Prismas –intellectual history in general and especially the intellectual history of Latin America- and that they comply with the journal’s norms concerning format. Once approved by the Editorial Board they are then submitted for evaluation to expert peers designated ad hoc by the Secretaría de Redacción (Secretariat) of the journal. In order to guarantee fairness the authorship of the article in question remains anonymous when received by the expert peers. Each article is reviewed by two peers, who can approve its publication, approve its publication with changes, or reject publication. When there is a stark discrepancy of opinion between the two peers, the article shall then be submitted to a third expert for judgment. As soon as the process of review has concluded, the journal informs the authors of its result.

The section “Readings” is made up of works which analyze two or more texts relevant to the field of intellectual history, and centering on a specific issue or problematic pertinent to said field. The evaluation of texts submitted to the journal is carried out, in this case, by the Editorial Board.

The section Book Reviews contains bibliographical essays discussing books which have appeared recently and that are related to the topics of intellectual history, understood in a broad manner (cultural history, history of ideas, history of mentalities, history of historiography, history of science, sociology of culture or of intellectuals, etc.). The decision to publish or reject reviews is taken by the Review Editors.
