Guidelines for presenting manuscripts:

It includes articles of original research and documentary testimonies, as well as critical reviews on publications of its subject.

Manuscripts submitted to the Editor must not have appeared previously in another publication and should offer an original, relevant contribution on its field. All manuscripts will be subject to confidential review by two experts on the article's subject, and the Editorial Board reserves the right to request the author for changes or to reject the contribution.

The Editor shall acknowledge receipt of contributions within fifteen days of having received them and will notify the author of the Board's decision within approximately four months.

The author will be supplied with twenty offprints of the article and a copy of the journal.

New contributions must be presented in letter-size paper, printed on one side; text should be double-spaced, font size 12 points. An electronic copy of the text on a Word format file, in an adequately labeled cd should also be included. Articles are accepted in English and Spanish only.
