Submission of originals

The proposals for publication will be subject to review prior to being accepted and included in the programming, so that all books published will have undergone an anonymous peer review process. To this end:

1. An e-mail of introduction must be sent to with a 150-word summary of the work in Spanish and in English.

2. These summaries are studied on a weekly basis to determine whether the proposal fits the characteristics of the series of monographs.

3. Should that be the case, a request is made to the author for the manuscript and it is sent to the reviewers.

4. The manuscript must respect the rules of editing.

5. Once its publication is approved (which may be on the condition of making changes), proofs of the text are sent to the printers in order to correct any possible errors or problems with the typesetting. No changes can be made after the reviewer’s final report

6. The digital version of this paper will be published in the open archive 'e-Archivo' and a URI will be assigned as a unique and persistent identifier.

7. There are no charges for authors.

Editing Rules

1. The manuscript will be written in a single lettering type, font size 11 for the body and 9 for footnotes. Indented paragraphs must also be in font size 9.

2. Nothing will be underscored or in bold. To indicate emphasis, cursive will be used in a first instance and subsequently, small capitals. Furthermore, overuse of capital letters is to be avoided.

3. The text will include, at the end, a list of all cited works, in alphabetical order by author’s last name or by title if the author is anonymous. To this end, names will be written last name first.

4. Bibliographic references appearing in footnotes are to be abbreviated: author’s last name, first words of the title (in cursive) and, when appropriate, pages of interest. Last names are not to be all capital letters.

5. If illustrations are necessary to complete the information, those provided must be of adequate quality and have the corresponding copyrights.

Peer review process

All works will undergo an external, independent and anonymous peer review, carried out by specialists of renowned prestige in the subject matter.

The works may be accepted either with obligatory changes (and undergo a subsequent review) or with suggestions, or they may also be rejected.
