Scope and policy
Aquichan journal publishes articles in Spanish and some other languages, not published yet (on electronic or printed media), as a fruit of a research, a reflection or a review, regarding Nursery and its wide range of working areas. The content of such articles must consent to the Mission-Vision of this journal, and they must fulfill its criteria of originality, innovation and methodology as well. Authors are exclusively responsible for their own opinions which do not reveal our politics as a journal. Every paper must include a texts’ originality declaration made by each one of the authors by filling in the form below, also available on the journal’s web page: http://aquichan.unisabana.edu.co
Form and preparation of manuscripts
Every single article is reviewed by the Editorial Committee, which verifies the entire fulfillment of our criteria, registered in these guidelines. The Committee will inform the author/authors if the article does not respond to any of these requirements.
After this first evaluation, documents are sent to a Peer in order to review their scientific and academic quality. Authors’ identity is not revealed to evaluators, neither vice versa. Once the Committee has received External and Internal Academic Peers judgments, it makes a decision that can be one of three: accepting the articles with some adjustments, accepting them definitely, or rejecting them. Aquichan takes 90 days at most to notify the authors.
Once the articles have been accepted and necessary adjustments or arrangements made, they must be corrected, respecting each author’s style. It means that correction is made on form, not on contents.

Works must have 25 pages at most, in Microsoft Word, 8.5 x 11 paper size, double spacing, no additional line-skipping between paragraphs and titles. Times New Roman, 12 points; 1.18 inches for top and bottom margins; and 0.98 inches for right and left margins.
