Typology of articles to be published *

  1. Scientific and/or technological articles. Texts that present, in detail, the original results of completed research projects. They usually consist of four main parts: introduction, methodology, results or findings, and conclusions.

  2. Thought and reflection articles. Texts that show results of finished research work on a specific topic, resort to original sources, and are written from the author’s analytical, interpretative, or critical point of view.

  3. Revision articles. Texts that show the results of finished research work whereby the findings of other published or unpublished studies, on science or technology, are analyzed, systematized, and unified in order to report on scientific or technological advances and developmental trends. Revision articles typically include at least 50 bibliographical references.

  4. Brief articles. Brief texts presenting preliminary or partial original results on scientific or technological topics that, usually, need prompt diffusion.

  5. Case reports. Texts that put forth the results of studies on a particular situation in order to make known the technical and methodological experiences used on a specific case. They must include systematic comment of relevant literature dealing with similar cases.

  6. Revision of particular topics. Text produced as a result of the critical revision of a particular subject.

  7. Translation. Translations of classical or topical texts; transcriptions of historical documents relevant to the journal’s interests.

  8. Thought and/or reflection documents. Documents not derived from research work.

* Typologies that warrant the scientific quality of the magazine as established by the Bibliographic Public Index, PUBLINDEX, COLCIENCIAS.
