Scope and policy
The Revista Internacional de Investigación en Ciencias de Sociales is a peer review publication of academic, scientific and technical nature. It is published periodically twice yearly (July and December), with the objective of promoting the exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge generation in the fields of Education, Business, Law, Communication and Sociology.
The Journal is focused on the national and international scientific-academic communities that produce studies related to the thematic area of the journal. It is open to the outcome of original articles from research projects and other significant original investigations in the specific area of the journal. Contributions must be original, not previously edited and not under simultaneous postulation in other journals.
The articles received will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee composed of national and international external academic peers. The refereeing process will be carried out in the double-blinded mode, warranting confidentiality and anonymity of authors and referees. Referees or reviewers are selected according to their expertise in the themes involved in each article. The evaluation criteria are: original content, conceptual rigor, methodology aspects, clarity and consistency, quality of sources and references, knowledge contribution, good presentation of abstracts, title relevance and conclusions.
The function of the peers consists of evaluating the articles presented and pronouncing one of four options: 1) Accepted; 2) Accepted with modifications; 3) Returned for correction; 4) Refused. In those cases in which there is a wide discrepancy in the evaluations, the Director of the Journal will resort to the review by a third external referee. Even though the reviewers judge fellow peer articles, the final decision rests in the hands of the Director of the publication.
