Aside from the title page (see below) please remove all identifying references: this includes both direct references to yourself and indirect references to colleagues, co-authors, and collaborators that would make it easy for a reader to deduce your identity.

If the argument of the manuscript depends upon the citation of your own previous work, then please voice those citations in the third person and include the works in the reference list as you would for any other author.

Please make certain to repeat the title of your essay on the first page of the text (after the title page) so that reviewers reading the anonymous version of the text will know its title.

We strongly encourage authors to keep original submissions to fewer than 8,500 words (a total that includes all notes and references). This target is in keeping with our overall publishing goals, and it offers successful authors the freedom to increase the word count during the revisions process. We will allow original submissions of up to an absolute maximum of 9,000 words (all inclusive). Write to one space, in A4 page size. The font style to be used will be Times New Roman of 12 points.



All submissions must follow the APA style in the body of the text and followed by a complete list of papers cited at the end. For any necessary clarification of the APA style, check out one of the many online guides on APA style, or check out the magazine's previous issues. Make sure that the list of cited papers includes all cited references and has full bibliographic details; Don't just import quotes from an external program without editing and correcting the list of cited jobs.

Two aspects must be taken into account when presenting an idea with its respective credit: if it is quoted verbatim (direct quote) or paraphrased (indirect), and what is the focus that will be given to it, if on the author (quote narrative) or about the idea itself (parenthetical quote).

Direct quote

Direct citations can be short (up to 40 words) or block (more than 40 words):

Short quote


Anger is considered a simple human reaction, and the sin of anger depends on the degree to which it manifests itself: "When the instinctual passionate movement of anger is awakened, it blinds us, studies us, and turns us into a kind of stubborn beast. This excess is detrimental, but I believe that a point of anger is necessary” (Savater, 2005, p. 81).


For Savater, as for many, anger is a simple human reaction, and the sin of anger depends on the degree to which it manifests itself: “When the instinctual passionate movement of anger awakens, blinds us, studies us and makes us a kind of stubborn beast. This excess is detrimental, but I believe that a point of anger is necessary” (2005, p. 81).

Block Quotations


In short, the settlement of whites, mestizos and some slaves was due to the policies of aggregation and segregation of land for the exploitation of livestock and crops:

Legally, the assault on the lands of the Indians was justified. Between the years 1750 and 1800, when the indigenous communities of eastern Colombia were the object of a policy of aggregation-segregation of land, the number of sales of some 68 reservations was approximately 110,308 pesos. In 1778, Moreno and Escandón reported from San Gil that the sale of only 18 towns had represented an income to the treasury of 45,560 pesos (Tovar, 1986, p. 23).


The settlement of whites, mestizos and some slaves is directly related to the policies of aggregation and segregation of land, which Tovar warns, for the exploitation of livestock and crops:

Legally, the assault on the lands of the Indians was justified. Between the years 1750 and 1800, when the indigenous communities of eastern Colombia were subject to a policy of aggregation-segregation of land, the number of sales of some 68 resguardos was approximately 110,308 pesos. In 1778, Moreno and Escandón reported from San Gil that the sale of only 18 towns had represented an income to the treasury of 45,560 pesos (1986, p. 23).


Indirect Quotation

Finally, rurality can refer to rural development, in which strategies of attention to marginalized, vulnerable, disarticulated populations, etc., are contemplated (Dirven et al., 2011).

Finally, Dirven et al. (2011) define rurality based on rural development, which includes strategies for caring for marginalized, vulnerable, disarticulated populations, etc.



Explanatory notes should be kept to an absolute minimum. Final versions of articles must use footnotes.



The primary style goals are clarity and consistency. Authors may use either UK or US spelling, but they must do so consistently. For punctuation, please follow the standards for US English. This entails:

  - using  double quotation marks, for quotes

  - placing all inverted commas within other punctuation

  - for the grammatical dash, using an en dash  without spaces before and after the en dash

The article must be well structured: introduction, methodology used, development, results and a solid conclusion.

Separation of sections should be done using ordinal numbers








Authors should strive for clarity and concision and should assume a broad, interdisciplinary audience of non-specialists. Therefore, manuscripts should explain complex concepts, local reallity, clarify and introduce special terminology, and avoid gesturing allusively to broad and dense literatures that are not explicated fully in the text.

Finally, to ease the job of the reviewers, manuscripts should be single-spaced, with clear delineation of new paragraphs (please use either a double paragraph break or a single paragraph break followed by an indented first line, but do not use both), and with pages numbered consecutively.




The article must be written using APA citations.

Full references will be included at the end of the article according to the American Psychological Association (APA) and in ALPHABETICAL ORDER.

For two authors in an APA citation of journal, first give the information for the first author followed by a comma, then use an ampersand (&) and list the information for the second author. For three to seven authors, separate the author names with commas and again use an ampersand before the final author name. In APA citation of journal articles never list more than seven authors. If there are more than seven authors, list the first six names separated by commas. Then, after the sixth author and a comma, instead of an ampersand use an ellipsis (…) followed by the final author name.



For a corporate author in APA citation of journal, use the publishing company in place of the author name in the citation. Place the name of the publishing company at the beginning of the citation just as you would the author’s name with proper capitalization.


If no author is given, to create the APA citation of journal use the title of the article in place of the author information. Then provide the publication date and publication name without repeating the article title.
