2) Maximum length of the abstract is 300 words.


If the manuscript includes images they should be attached in a separate file in high quality jpg format. If the images are not sufficiently clear, the editors reserve the right to exclude them from the publication. The author must also send the corresponding permission to use the image if it does not belong to the author or is not free of copyright.


The author must clear the file of metadata in order to guarantee the blind review.

Typography and others

All text in Times New Roman font, size 12 point and single line spacing.

The different sections of the text should be numbered and in bold. Do not inden the section title.

Neither bold nor underlining should be used inside the text.

Footnotes in Times New Roman font, size 10, single line spacing.

Do not indent the beginning of paragraphs.

Important: The titles and subtitles in Spanish should only be capitalized in the first letter of the first word. You should not start each word with a capital letter, except for proper names. Also do not use capital letters for the entire title. In English you can start the word of the titles in capital letter but following the rule for English titles.


References should appear at the end of the document under the heading of "References" and organized in alphabetical order.

The Author-Date System must be used.

VERY IMPORTANT: You must indicate the DOI registration for references (all articles, books, reviews, etc.); if it is not possible, indicate the entire URLs, for example:

Only those publications that have been used for the manuscript and that are specifically cited in the work should be included.

According to the style indicated, the bibliographical references must be inserted within the text, indicating in parentheses only the author's surname, year of publication and the page (s).

The bibliography should come at the end of the article in alphabetical order, repeating the surnames in the case of several books or articles by the same author, followed by the year of publication corresponding to the bibliographic reference indicated in the article. Texts by the same author must be ordered according to their order of appearance.

Citations within the text of the manuscript (Author-Date Style)

When the quotation has less than 40 words, it should be included within the text, in quotation marks and without italics. A period (full stop) should be written at the end of the quotation and its data.

If the citation has more than 40 words, the text is written as a block, without quotation marks, on a separate line, with indentation. At the end of the quotation the period is placed before the data.

The volume of quotations should not exceed 10% of the total text.

Footnotes (Very Important)

Notes should be placed at the bottom of the page and numbered consecutively.

We recommend keeping the number and length of footnotes to a minimum. It is preferable that each footnote should be no longer than two lines and that the total number of footnotes in the article should not exceed 10.

We recommend not including bibliographical references or citations in footnotes.



Tables, graphs, figures and charts

Tables or charts should be presented in the body of the text. They must be accompanied by their corresponding title and legend and numbered consecutively, in Times New Roman font and size 10 point.

The figures or graphs should be presented in high quality PNG or JPEG files.


The submitted book reviews must be from recently published books, from the current year.

A full book review may concern only one book or monograph or several works. Its length is about 750-1000 words (use 12-point Times New Roman, and defer to the Author-Date Manual of Style for questions of formatting). It should give readers an engaging, informative, and critical discussion of the work.

The most important point in developing a book review is to address the Journal’s readership: international and interdisciplinary. The review should consider:

  • The intended audience for the book and who would find it useful;
  • The background of the author;
  • The main ideas and major objectives of the book and how effectively these are accomplished;
  • The soundness of methods and information sources used;
  • A comparison with other works on this subject;
  • Constructive comments about the strength and weaknesses of the book;
  • For edited books: dominant themes with reference to specific chapters as appropriate; and implications of the book for research, policy, practice, or theory.

The header of your review should include:

  • Author(s) or editor(s) first and last name(s) (please indicate if it is an edited book)
  • Title of book
  • Year of publication
  • Place of publication
  • Publisher
  • Number of pages
  • Price (please indicate paperback or hard cover) if available
  • ISBN

At the end of your review, please include:

  • Your first and last name
  • Email
  • Institution affiliation
  • A brief biographical
