Scope and policy


The journal Subjetividad y procesos cognitivosto contribute to the knowledge and research in the field of psychology. Our goal is to develop a field of convergence and debate between different orientations, with an emphasis on problems concerning theory, clinical issues, research methodology and critical situations. The journal is published twice a year and is thematic when possible.



Form and preparation of manuscripts


Collaborations should be written in Spanish, Portuguese, English or French on IBM PC or compatible processor Microsoft Word 97 - 2003 or later versions, the graphics in Microsoft Word (in grayscale, respecting as maximum 11 x 18 cm., in separate file). Authors are required to send: a) an email with the following data: name and surname, postal address and electronic address, title of the article, document name and program used, b) two printed copies at double space or a space and a half, in A4 or letter format, written on one side only, with reasonable margins and no amendments.

The illustrations (photographs, drawings, diagrams and tables) should be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals. The explanation of the illustrations must be written on separate page. The photographs must have good contrast (300 dpi and the scan saved in tiff or jpg format). The drawings should be done in India ink. The original drawings or a photograph copy of the picture is also accepted. Illustrations must be identified with the name of the author and the illustration number on the back. Tables should be numbered and have a numbered reference in the text. Each table must be presented on separate page.

Articles should not exceed 10,000 words, notes 3,000; bibliographic references 1,000. Articles exceeding these limits will be considered by the editor.

In the text, bibliography is cited by the name of the author and the year of publication of the original text between brackets. When an article has between three and six authors, all authors should be listed on the first quote of the text. From then on, only the name of the first author should be cited followed by et al. When an article has six or more authors, only the first author´s name should be cited followed by et al. for all citations. All references must be conveyed to the list entitled "Bibliographic References" which the author includes at the end of the article. Conversely, the items (or entries) from this list should correspond to the publications cited in the text. Redundant entries should be avoided. The Reference list should place authors in alphabetical order. Publications (if more than one is included for a particular author) will be in listed in chronological order. If two publications of the same author are of the same year the first will add "a" after the date, the second "b" and so on. When an author is mentioned in the References for his individual work and for others in which he is alphabetically the first author his individual work will precede his group work. "Ib.", "Ibid.", "Ibid" will not be used in the References (as the article or the book are recorded only once) and in the text they will be avoided where possible. To make a distinction between two or more places regarding the same reference state the pages in the text. Titles of books will be written in lower case (except the first letter of the first word and proper nouns), without quotation marks nor italics. Following the title appears the location of the publishing house, the publishing house and year of publication. Even when the author's article is not necessarily based on the original edition the two dates can be entered. For instance: Hartman, H. (1939) Ego psychology and the problem of adaptation. New York. IUP. 1958 (Translation Spanish: La psicologia del yo y el problema de la adaptación, Buenos Aires, Paidós, 1964)’.In case there was a translation in Spanish but complete reference wasn´t available, the following should appear (Spanish translation is available).

Titles of articles will be enclosed in quotation marks and not underlined. The name of the journal that includes it (in full text and underlined) should come next, then the volume number and year.

Notes should be inserted as footnotes, with continuous autonumber. Notes at the end of the article are not accepted, neither are asterisks or other marks or notes numbered manually by the author. The numbering should be the automatic one set by the word processor (in Word, deploy menu "insert" and then select "Footnote").

The article title, abstract and keywords must be in the language in which the article was written and in English.



Sending of manuscripts


Authors of articles and notes should present a summary not longer than 150 words. Two versions of the summary will be presented: one in the language of the article and the other one in English, and an updated résumé of not more than 150 words. Collaborators must enclose the summaries to their article and include them in separate files, as well as the résumé, in the diskette.

No additions or modifications will be taken into account once the article has been accepted by the Edition Committee. Articles submitted must be unpublished. Articles are initially examined by the Editorial Committee and generally sent to the peer reviewers anonymously. Information regarding the author´s identity will appear on separate page, in hands of the Edition Committee. Acceptance of articles will be notified to the authors 3 or 4 months before publication. After acceptance for publication, articles may not be reproduced without permission of the Editorial Board.
