Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • Have read the Revista Guillermo de Ockham policy and agree to it (see Guide for authors).
  • Verify that the paper complies with all formal, ethical and legal requirements for authors and co-authors (see Ethical policy).
  • Fill out the submission form correctly and completely (Please refrain from using sustained capital letters in names and titles, both on the platform and in the formats).
  • Submit an unpublished manuscript; that is, one that has not been published in any medium (print or digital) and has not been submitted simultaneously to another journal and is not being considered for publication by another publisher.
  • Review the article by a style corrector. This ensures that the content arrives without typing, grammatical, semantic, spelling, linguistic and citation errors and reduces the probability that a peer reviewer may reject the manuscript with the argument that carelessness in writing impeded the communication and understanding of the results.
  • Download and fill out the Cover Letter completely and correctly. Verify the submission checklist inside and sign it after filling it out (download model here).
  • Download, read, answer and sign, individually, the Declaration of Interests. This should be done separately by authors and co-authors (download model here).
  • Attach the following files: 1. Manuscript 2. Cover letter 3. Declaration of interests of all authors. 4. Figures in their source format (jpg, png, tiff, etc.) with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch). This point applies if figures were used in the paper. 5. Research approval from the bioethics committee or bodies that approved the study. This item applies if the object of the study is humans or animals. 6. Informed consent for publication: if there are data, photographs, or material that identifies the study participants. This item applies if personal information (as indicated above) was used. 7. Authorizations for publication: permissions for partial or total reproduction of published material that is not in the public domain or licensed for use and that has been used in the paper. This item applies if the material that is not in the public domain or licensed for use was used.
  • Note: Subsequently, when the paper is positively evaluated by the peers and approved by the editorial committee, the authors will be required to fill out, sign, and send the assignment of rights.

Author Guidelines

See Guide for authors


The editorial is a document written by the editor-in-chief or by a guest editor considered pertinent by the editorial team. Its development may obey the presentation of the issue, deal with a topic of interest, analyze a social situation related to the publication or propose emerging issues, among other aspects that have a direct relationship with the journal. The editorial will not be peer-reviewed and will not have an abstract or keywords.

Research article

An unpublished document that presents, in a detailed and organized manner, the complete results of a finalized original research project. Originality is related to the dissemination of new knowledge or to the explanation of its contribution. Unpublished refers to the fact that it has not been published or made known to a community by any means (printed or electronic). It presents its final results in complete detail (not partial), i.e., it provides enough information to be reproduced by other researchers. Organized information means that the document follows a logical presentation (it is structured). This type of article follows the following structure: abstract, introduction, methodology, results, discussion and conclusions (AIM-RD&C).

Review article

A scientific or technical document that compiles, systematizes and analyzes the published literature on a given topic to provide answers to specific problems (Cué Brugueras et al., 2008). Its strength lies in the critical analysis of the available literature, using systematic methods to arrive at results that can be replicated. Unlike the research article, this type of article reviews a larger proportion of references (doubling or tripling its quantity).

Reflection article

Scientific or technical document that analyzes research results from an analytical, interpretative and critical perspective. The reflection is focused on a specific issue, of interest and topicality. Although it is based on a particular (author) or collective (group of authors) position, it must be based on evidence, argued and presented in a clear and organized manner, in such a way that it achieves thematic mastery, soundness in the exposition of arguments and orientation to new ideas or perspectives. A reflection article is presented by a researcher with experience in the subject and who has focused on it for a large part of his or her research career. Their position must be well justified and have clear consequences that can be derived from their opinions.

Book Reviews

A document of short length that makes a commentary or reflection on a book published in relation to the thematic area of the journal. This document discusses the objective and the contributions it has to the public and makes a critical analysis of the subject matter and its current relevance. It also mentions the importance and relevance for its disciplinary area and gives recommendations to readers.
