The author must send two files to
1. Author and article data

First file only: A page with information about the author. (Download Template: Author Form)

2. Anonymous version of the article

The second file only article content: title, abstract, keywords, introduction, methodology, results, discussion and conclusion, references.

|The second file will be sent to peer reviewers, so the author's name should not appear|

APC Article-processing charges

CICSHAL-RELIGACIÓN, Center for Research in Social Sciences and Humanities of Latin America, finances the work of Revista Religación, however, as a private institution, it asks the author for a contribution to sustain the processes of the journal that goes beyond the technical part and the production of the article.
Religación is an Open Access Gold Journal, which allows free access to all its documents immediately. The magazine does not charge any value for sending articles. Therefore, once the peer review process is completed and the article is approved for publication, a contribution request will be sent to the author's mailbox. This will allow us to support the editorial process (editing, design, anti-plagiarism software, DOI, software licenses such as Microsoft, Adobe, etc.)
In some cases, CICSHAL may subsidize part or all the contribution requested by the author. In no case will the economic aspect be a limitation for the publication of the approved article.

APC: 100 USD
