Author Guidelines

Authors are required to register on the Estudios de Filosofía website before beginning the submission process. If you are already registered as an author, just log in to submit your paper through five steps. Be sure to comply with the manuscript preparation guide as shown below, and also read the copyright notice. 
Estudios de Filosofía has adopted the APA Style (Seventh Edition) as the standard citation system for our papers. Helpful information may be found in APA Reference Style.
There is no publishing or article processing charge (APC).
The journal cannot consider more than one paper at a time from any one author, whether as the author or as co-author. So, until a final decision to publish or reject has been made on one paper, its author(s) will not be eligible to submit another paper for consideration.
The journal only accepts manuscripts from authors who have a Ph.D. or master degree. 
All manuscripts will undergo an initial review with an anti-plagiarism tool. Once confirmed with the anti-plagiarism report that the text meets the originality requirements, it will be submitted for initial review by the Journal Editor and the Editorial Committee to determine that it is appropriate to the journal's theme, scope, objective, and editorial guidelines. If the anti-plagiarism percentage reaches 30% self-reference, the text will be rejected.
Artificial intelligence (AI) can be used in order to improve the readability of the texts, but in no case to produce manuscripts. AI can produce content that is incorrect, false, biased, or even appropriate original work from another author without proper citation. Without pretending to ignore technological advances, this journal reiterates its commitment to the production of new knowledge, the authenticity of documents submitted to editorial processes, academic curatorship, integrity, and ethics in research and publication. Thus, Estudios de Filosofía will reject articles in which the indiscriminate use of AI is detected.
Once the manuscript is accepted for editorial consideration by the journal, it will undergo double-blind peer review to determine its potential publication. The author might be required to review the manuscript before publication, yet the right to refuse publication of articles is restricted to the editor or the director. All manuscripts must be submitted in MS Word 2003-2010 or .docx. The following information is suggested as a guide for organizing your submission.

All authors must attach, in addition to the paper, a file with a brief biography, including their studies, their institutional affiliation, and their lines of work and research.

In addition to publishing articles in Spanish, Estudios de filosofía also considers the publication of contributions in English. In the case of manuscripts submitted in English, as part of the editorial review process, the journal may refrain from publishing them when it considers that their writing in English is not optimal or is not clearly linked to the debate or context to which it wishes to contribute. Articles in English, whose authors are not native speakers, should be sent to the journal once they have been carefully reviewed by a proofreader and should follow the suggestions made by the editorial team during the publication process.
