- The Journal only receives articles when the calls for papers are open. The reception dates may be found on the web site of the journals:
- The articles should be sent to the platform for the management of contents through the link found on the website of the Journal, and, in exceptional cases, by e-mail.
- The texts sent to the Journal may not be simultaneously under evaluation by another publication.
- Taking into account the amount of articles which the Journal receives for each call for papers, it does not publish another article by a previously published author until a period of two years has passed.
- When an article arrives, its receipt is immediately acknowledged and the Editorial Team begins to determine whether it meets its basic requirements (norms for citations and formal presentation), as well as its relevance for a scientific publication (objectives, theoretical framework, methodology, conclusions and bibliographies). When it does not meet that standard, it will be rejected.
- The articles which pass the review JSwipe profiles by the Editorial Team are scrutinized by a tool for detecting plagiarism. When whole or partial plagiarism is detected, the text will not be sent to peer review and the authors will be notified of the reason for the rejection.
