Submission Guidelines

Articles, interviews and reviews will be received in Spanish and English. Papers submitted to the journal’s call for papers  must not be under  evaluation by any other publication and  will only be received throught the site for online manuscript submission  and review in ScholarOne: The editorial process and comunication between its actors will take place throught the e-mail system of ScholarOne.


Timeline and Editorial Process

Once the articles or interviews are received, the Editorial Board will evaluate their basic compliance with  the  editorial  requirements of Perífrasis. If approved by  this  committee, the document will be sent for double-blind review by two external  peers. Results of the review will be announced through a letter of acceptance, acceptance with changes, or rejection, which will be sent to the authors  by e-mail.

          If an article or interview is accepted and changes are requested, the author will have two weeks to work  on them.  Once  these  changes  are reviewed,  the  author will be informed about  the final approval and publishing  dates. During  reviewing times, Perífrasis may contact  the authors.

          The Editorial Board will determine, based on the result of the peer review, whether an article  will be published or not,  as well as which  articles  can be published in future  issues. The Editorial Board reserves the right to decide on copyediting when it deems it necessary.


Papers Accepted for Publication

Once  a paper  is accepted  for publication, the  author  must  sign a consent  form for the transfer of rights to Universidad de los Andes for the printed  version as well as the digital version of the journal. Authors  of accepted  papers will receive two copies of the journal where their manuscript appears.

            If the author would like to include  the article or interview in a different  publication, he or she must  wait at least six months  from the  publication date  of  Perífrasis to do so. The author  must request written  authorization from the Editorial Board and the journal editor, and declare Perífrasis as the original publication.


Papers Presentation Parameters

Articles and interviews length must be between  5000 and 8000 words, including footnotes, abstracts, keywords and the list of works cited.
