Focus and Scope
Framed by the institutional fundamentals of the Universidad de La Sabana, and pursuant to the tenets of the curriculum of its School of Law, Díkaion is a serious, high-level journal dedicated to legal information on the fundamentals and current aspects of the various institutions concerned with private or public law, as well as background information, general remarks and opinions in the legal realm, both national and international. The Journal respects ideological positions and encourages continuous dialogue on them. Accordingly, its contents are intended to generate academic discussion and reflection aimed at validating possible solutions to the socio-legal issues being raised and their subsequent impact on the scientific and social environment.
Peer Review Process
All articles are reviewed by the Editorial Board to verify full compliance with the criteria requested in these instructions. Should any of the respective requirements not be met, the author(s) will be informed accordingly.
After being reviewed by the Editorial Board, the articles are sent to expert peers who evaluate their scientific and academic quality. The identity of the authors is not disclosed to the reviewers, nor do the authors know who is reviewing their work. Once the designated external and internal academic peers have given their opinion, a decision is made to publish the material with modifications, to accept the material definitively, as is, or to reject it.
The Journal will notify the author(s) within a prudent period that shall not exceed 60 days. After being accepted and once all adjustments or modifications have been made, if such be the case, the articles are submitted for copy editing. This process respects each author's particular style and, in no case, does copy editing imply any changes whatsoever in the contents of an article.
