Scope and editorial policy

Tópicos publishes original articles, reviews and discussions in Spanish and Portuguese which contribute to advancing knowledge of issues covered in the journal and contribute to the debate on current problems in theoretical philosophy, practical philosophy and the interpretation and criticism of history of philosophy in its broadest sense, or of thought and culture. The published works are therefore of interest to a wider audience than that of specialists in philosophical disciplines.
Tópicos has an editorial policy that is open access and free. It does not charge or pay any pecuniary rights to authors and / or readers. "Open access" is understood to mean its free availability on the public Internet, allowing any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or use the information for any legal purpose, without any financial, legal or technical barrier, except those which implies access to the Internet itself.

The evaluation of the articles follows the criterion of "double blind", that is, the evaluators are unaware of the identity of the authors, and the authors are unaware of the identity of the evaluators.
