Authors Guidelines

Scope and policy


Ciencia, Docencia y Tecnología publishes original research articles, scientific and theoretically sustained academic communications, book reviews and documents on Science, Technology and Society matters, in Spanish and Portuguese. The online edition is an open source publication. Content of articles do not express the opinion either of the publishing institution or the members of the Editorial and Advisory Boards.

Admission of articles: All articles that preliminary appear adjusted to the journal’s requirements will be submitted to an anonymous peer review process by experts of recognised prestige, with the exception of the reviews submitted for publication along with Final Reports of UNER R&D projects, which have public evaluation and will be published in the Supplement Scientific and Technological Research at UNER. The referees’ decision is final. The review processes are determined by the number of articles on the waiting list and the availability of advisors. The Editorial Board will inform authors on the results of the arbitral process and on publishing, where this is the case. The Editorial Board holds the right to bring forward or postpone the inclusion of articles which, at the close of publication, have been approved without observations by at least two referees, to better organise the content of each issue. Additionally, the Board reserves the rights to make any style corrections and editorial changes to improve the quality and to resolve any unforeseen cases.

Authors’ Rights: The Universidad Nacional de Entre Ríos (UNER) will require the authors of admitted articles to extend authorisation for printed as well as electronic publication.

-When the author is mentioned in the text, the year of publication should be indicated in brackets, i.e.: As seen in Rodríguez (2004).

-Quotation transcripts should go in inverted commas, adding page reference to the Author (year) citation; i.e.:
