Scope and policy
The main objective of the Anuario Colombiano de Historia Social y de la Cultura is to disseminate research work in Colombian history; however, it welcomes comparative articles on Latin America and the world, as well as historiographic and theoretical analyses. The journal accepts only original unpublished articles; therefore, it does not accept translations, papers, or parts of works that have previously been published in any manner whatsoever.

Authors residing abroad may send their contributions to the journal’s e-mail addresses.
If the article is the result of a research project financed by an institution, the following information must be included: name of the project, institution, code, and date of approval. The journal accepts only original illustrations, not photocopies.
Digital photographs must have a resolution higher than 300 dpi. Tables and figures must be unpublished; otherwise, the author must obtain the corresponding authorization to reproduce them and cite the source in the caption.
Italics are used for emphasis and for foreign words. Boldface is reserved for the article’s titles and subtitles. Words should not be separated at the end of a line. Quotations longer than five lines should be indented with no quotation marks.
With respect to citations and references, the journal follows the Modern Language Association of America citation style regarding footnotes. See Joseph Gibaldi, MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 6th ed. (New York: MLA, 2003), or www.utoledo.edu/library/help/guides/docs/MLAstyle.pdf.
