Instructions to authors
Economía, Sociedad y Territorio (EST) is a journal open to all disciplines related to social science in the context of specific regions and cities. It is also open to different viewpoints and methodologies; however, it has no responsibility for to the content of its papers.
The originals of the manuscripts submitted to be considered for publication will undergo an editorial process comprising several stages. It is therefore necessary that they follow certain norms in order to facilitate their edition and avoid delays in publication:
The manuscripts submitted to EST must have an eminently academic character. Due to the nature of the journal, it is impossible to accept journalistic or general comment papers about any subject.
The name of the author(s) or any other form of identification must only appear in the cover page.
The collaborations must be submitted in their final and complete version, since it will be impossible to accept changes once the refereeing and production processes have started.
Once it has been decided that the paper complies with the requirements established by the journal, it will be sent to two referees who anonymously will determine whether the article will be: a) published without changes, b) published once minor corrections have been made, c) published once a major revision has been made or d) rejected. In the case in which both results differ from each other, the article will be sent to a third referee, whose decision will determine the result of the refereeing process. In all cases, the results are unappealable. The articles submitted by staff of an academic institution will always be submitted for consideration to referees external to it.
The authors agree to grant EST permission to distribute their material in the journal, as well as in magnetic and photographic media. The patrimonial rights of the papers published in EST are transferred to El Colegio Mexiquense, A.C. after the academic and editorial acceptance to publish and distribute the manuscript, both in print and electronically. Likewise, the authors retain their moral rights as established by law. The main author will receive a copyright transfer form that must be signed, with the understanding that the rest of the authors have given their agreement. The authors also retain their right to use the material in their papers in other works or books published by themselves, provided that they cite EST as the original source of the text. It is the responsibility of the authors to obtain the corresponding written permission to use material in their papers that is protected by Copyright Law.
The authors must take into account the diversity of readers they are addressing. The manuscripts must be written in a clear, easy-to-read and well-structured manner.
