Revista de Ciencias Sociales. as an essential part of the production and generation that currently is being made in the subject of the Social Sciences in Latin America and Spain; what is more, we have gained acceptance in Canada and the United States.

Said consolidation is more clearly shown through the acceptance of the Journal into two of the most important indexes in the world as the Citation Index (SSCI) from ISI-Thompson and the Hispanic American Periodical Index (HAPI) are.
