Scope and policy
The EAN journal (ISSN 0120-8160) is a publication of technical, scientific and cultural nature, published twice a year by the EAN University. Its main objective is the publication of works resulting from research or theoretical reviews that are articulated with the interest of both academic and business environments, and that contribute to debates in the field of social sciences, specifically in the area of economics and business.
Its target audience is professionals, academics, researchers, and students, who seek to keep up in content related to the thematic areas that are addressed in the publication.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
The articles that are sent to the EAN journal must be engaged within one of the following categories1:
1 The typology of articles presented here was taken from the specifications established by Colciencias -Publindex-.
General structure of the articles.
The data that is indispensable and that every postulated article must include are:
In addition, it is suggested for the article to be structured as follows:
Presentation format for the articles.
Other aspects to be taken into account.
The journal uses an adaptation of the American Psychology Association (APA) as a standard in terms of style, citation, reference, and presentation of figures and tables. The Manual of citation and referencing of the EAN University is suggested to be use as a specific guide, available in http://editorial.universidadean.edu.co/
They must be numbered with the decimal system (1, 2, 3, 3.1, 3.2, 3.2.1, etc.). They should not be capitalized, but use only initial capital.
All the photographs, images, and tables must have consecutive numbering, title, and their respective source. These, in addition to being presented in the body of the text, must be sent in an additional file in the format in which they were originally created and in gray scale, not in color. The resolution should be 300 dpi.
If there are statistical data represented in bars or cakes, they must also be presented in gray scale, so it must be taken into account that the information represented there must be clear and easy to identify.
They are located at the end of the document and must be organized in alphabetical order. All the texts, referenced contents, and authors that are mentioned in the body of the text must be registered in the reference list and vice versa.
The articles that are postulated to the EAN journal are subject to a complete evaluation process, with a general selection criteria that includes the thematic relevance, the scientific quality, the originality, the clarity in the argumentation, and the fulfillment of the parameters of article presentation established by the journal, in order to guarantee the quality and scientific rigor of the publication. The detailed description of this process is presented below:
Once the thematic axes of the editions of the year have been defined, as well as the projection of the editorial calendar by the Editorial Committee of the journal, the corresponding calls for national and international for the reception of articles are launched.
After the call is closed, the Editorial Committee gets together to carry out the verification process of the initial requirements for the articles, in relation to their typology, compliance with the journal guidelines for the presentation of articles, and the thematic focus hereof.
After this first evaluation filter, the corresponding notification is made to the totality of the authors, and those texts that have passed this first stage move to the review and evaluation phase in double blind mode, by external peers.
The evaluation is carried out using the format that is authorized by the journal, which is sent to the peers together with the text, the general instructions for completion, and the notification of the deadlines established for the corresponding review and evaluation.
The two axes around which the evaluation is articulated are the formal structure and the quality of the content, which in turn divide into a series of elements that are rated numerically - from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest value and 5 the highest-, and that in their final sum produce a score that determines the valuation and the concept in front of the publication of the article in the following way:
According to the concept that is issued by the peer, the notification to each author including the feedback of the observations and suggestions obtained through the evaluation are sent, as well as the request for adjustments, if required. In the latter case, a specific delivery period is determined and subsequently a verification process of these adjustments is carried out, under the responsibility of the evaluating peer.
Ethics and Publication Malpractice
Plagiarism is the textual or partial copy of ideas from others that are presented as your own. Therefore, it is understood as undue intellectual appropriation; it is a practice proscribed by law, reproached and repudiated by society.
Due to the above, each author, in his/her writings, must respect the right that arises on ideas, criteria and even figures, tables, and in general, all kinds of works that are taken from other authors; that is, you must give them their corresponding credit.
As for the self-plagiarism, it is about the previous publications elaborated by authors, who in turn, consider that they can use information of these materials without indicating that, first, they have already been published, and second, that it is from their authorship. This practice, from any ethical point of view, is inappropriate and rejected in the framework of scientific writing.
The articles that incur in any of these two situations - plagiarism or self-plagiarism-, will not be considered, under any circumstance, to supply the process of publication in the EAN journal. Given the case, the respective notification of rejection will be made, making the reason clear.
The EAN journal uses the Safe Assign Software for the verification of plagiarism and self-plagiarism in its articles.
