Focus and Scope

Revista Facultad de Ingenieria started in 1984 and is a publication of the School of Engineering at the University of Antioquia.

The main objective of the journal is to promote and stimulate the publishing of national and international scientific research results. The journal publishes original articles, resulting from scientific research, experimental and or simulation studies in engineering sciences, technology, and similar disciplines (Electronics, Telecommunications, Bioengineering, Biotechnology, Electrical, Computer Science, Mechanical, Chemical, Environmental, Materials, Sanitary, Civil and Industrial Engineering).

In exceptional cases, the journal will publish insightful articles related to current important subjects, or revision articles representing a significant contribution to the contextualization of the state of the art in a known relevant topic. Case reports will only be published when those cases are related to studies in which the validity of a methodology is being proven for the first time, or when a significant contribution to the knowledge of an unexplored system can be proven.

All published articles have undergone a peer review process, carried out by experts recognized for their knowledge and contributions to the relevant field.

To adapt the Journal to international standards and to promote the visibility of the published articles; and therefore, to have a greater impact in the global academic community, after November 1st 2013, the journal will accept only manuscripts written in English for reviewing and publication.

Revista Facultad de Ingeniería –redin is entirely  financed by University of Antioquia

Since 2015, every article accepted for publication in the journal is assigned a DOI number.

Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to the journal for publication undergone a  follow-up system, which aims to keep control of the submission evolution until the final decision of their publication.

Once an article is received, no later than 15 days, the section Editor verifies that the content is related to the topics and purposes of the Journal, and that the article has been written according to the publishing instructions sent to the authors.

Upon recommendation of the Editorial Committee, the section Editor will send the article to at least three peers for revision. The would-be peers are selected from researchers' databases to which the Universidad de Antioquia's School of Engineering Journal has access. The peers will be active researchers in the areas of interest having a recognized trajectory in areas related to the topic of the article. These conditions are verified through their curriculum vitae and by reviewing their publications over the last two years.

Both peers and authors cannot belong to the same institution. Peers-to-be will be consulted about their availability to assess the article, and in the case they accept the revision, they will be provided access to the article and to the assessment guide in order to record their comments and recommendations about the acceptance or rejection of the text. It is expected that the peers who accept the assessment of the articles commit to carry out the assessment of the article within a month after receiving the document.

After the articles are evaluated for at least two peers, the editor of the Journal will send the evaluated articles to consideration of the Editorial Committee. When assessments are not sufficiently supported, or if there are discrepancies among concepts or arguments which are not clear for the committee, the concept of additional peers can be requested.

The Committee will make a decision regarding the publication of the article according to the assessments, bearing in mind the answers of the authors for the questions made by the peers and the editor, and supported by the criteria of their members based on the editorial policies. The decision can be one of the following: acceptance or rejection of the article.

The articles accepted by the Committee will be placed in a waiting list for their publication, taking into account the order of submission and approval. No more than one article per author will be published in each Journal issue. The Journal  will not publish articles of the same main author in consecutive issues. No more than three articles of authors that belong to the editing institution will be published per issue.

Publication Frequency

The journal has quarterly periodicity, it is published during the periods January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December. Once the editing processes of each issue have been completed, it will be available on the journal's website and social networks.
