Submission Guidelines

Articles will be received in Spanish and English. Articles submitted to the journal’s call for papers must not be under evaluation by any other publication and will only be received in digital form at the following e-mail address: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


Timeline and Editorial Process
Once the articles are received, the Editorial Board will evaluate their basic compliance with the editorial requirements of Perífrasis. Once 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 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.


Articles Accepted for Publication
Once an article 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 articles will receive two copies of the journal where their article appears.

          If the author would like to include the article 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.


Article Presentation Parameters

Article length must be between 5000 and 8000 word, including footnotes, abstracts, keywords and the list of works cited. Charts, tables, and images are not part of an article’s length; in order to use them, the author must make sure that all copyright issues have been cleared.

          On its first page, the article must include an abstract in English and Spanish no longer than 100 words, and five keywords. In order to ensure impartiality in the evaluation, the author’s name must not appear in any of the article’s pages. The author’s contact information  (name,  address,  phone  numbers,  e-mail  address,  etc.)  and  academic affiliation must be placed on a separate file. Once an article is accepted, the author must send by e-mail his or her updated CV (degrees, current position, institutional  affiliation, a list of all publications in books and journals for the last three years), and the research project from which the article derives.

          Review length must not exceed 4 pages, and reviews must comply with the same editorial requirements as articles. Moreover, reviewed texts must not exceed three years of antiquity in relation with the issue’s projected date of publication.

           Perífrasis  bases  its  editing  style  on  the  eighth  edition  of  the  MLA  Handbook  for Writers  of  Research  Papers  and  all  articles  must  comply  with  the  previous  rules and the Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins format.
