INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

Scope and policy

Both in its printed and digital (open access) versions, Perífrasis publishes research articles and reviews in Spanish and English. Articles submitted for the journal's call must not be in current evaluation process by any other publication and will only be received in digital form at the following e-mail address: revistaperifrasis@uniandes.edu.co within the timeline set by the journal.

Ethic Declaration

Author Responsibilities

Authors must sign the Responsability Form. In this form authors take responsibility for the content of the article and declare that their papers are original works, that have obtained the permission to reproduce material which is not their property, and that they have recognize its source.

Articles submitted to the journal's call for papers must not be under evaluation by any other publication and will only be received in digital form at the following e-mail address: revistaperifrasis@uniandes.edu.co within the timeline set by the journal. These must meet the Submission Guidelines criteria, which can be accessed, in English and Spanish, in the web site and in the printed version of the journal.

If an article is accepted and changes are requested, the author will have two weeks to work on them. Once an article is accepted for publication, the author must sign a consent form for the transfer of rights to Universidad de los Andes for both the printed and the digital version of the journal. In it, the author must specify the article authorship and that the article respects the intellectual property rights of third parties.

In case the author finds inaccuracies or errors in his or her article after being issued, he or she must publicly retract. Otherwise, Perífrasis will retract the article and will make public this information.

Editorial Responsibilities, Peer Review and Evaluators Responsibilities

Once the articles are received, the Editorial Board will evaluate their basic compliance with the editorial requirements of Perífrasis and will submit them to a plagiarism check. If partial or total plagiarism is detected, the article is not sent for evaluation and the author will be notified with the rejection reason. Once approved by this committee, the document will be sent for double-blind, external peer review. In the review form, reviewers must declare that they have no conflict of interest with the evaluation.

Results of the review will be announced through a letter of acceptance, acceptance with changes, or rejection, which will be sent to the authors by e-mail. If an article is accepted and changes are requested, the author will have two weeks to work on them. Once these changes are reviewed, the author will be informed about the final approval and publishing dates. During reviewing the review period, Perífrasis may contact the authors.

The Editorial Board will determine, based on the result of the peer review, whether an article will be published or not, as well as which articles can be published in future issues. The Editorial Board reserves the right to decide on copyediting when it deems it necessary.

As soon as an issue of the journal is released, the editor has the responsibility to make it available to authors, the institutions with whom exchange agreements have been established, as well as national and international indexation systems, repositories, and databases. The editor will also be in charge of sending the journal to active subscribers.

Form and preparation of manuscripts

Timeline and Editorial Process

Once the articles are received, the Editorial Board will evaluate their basic compliance with the editorial requirements of Perífrasis. Once approved by this committee, the document will be sent for double-blind review by two external peers. Results of the review will be announced through a letter of acceptance, acceptance with changes, or rejection, which will be sent to the authors by e-mail.

If an article is accepted and changes are requested, the author will have two weeks to work on them. Once these changes are reviewed, the author will be informed about the final approval and publishing dates. During reviewing times, Perífrasis may contact the authors.

The Editorial Board will determine, based on the result of the peer review, whether an article will be published or not, as well as which articles can be published in future issues. The Editorial Board reserves the right to decide on copyediting when it deems it necessary.

Articles Accepted for Publication

Once an article is accepted for publication, the author must sign a consent form for the transfer of rights to Universidad de los Andes for the printed version as well as the digital version of the journal. Authors of accepted articles will receive two copies of the journal where their article appears.

If the author would like to include the article in a different publication, he or she must wait at least six months from the publication date of Perífrasis to do so. The author must request written authorization from the Editorial Board and the journal editor, and declare Perífrasis as the original publication.

Article and Review Presentation Parameters

Article length must be between 12 and 20 pages (letter size), including footnotes. Charts, tables, and images are not part of an article's length; in order to use them, the author must make sure that their copyright is still valid. Review length must not exceed 4 pages, and reviews must comply with the same editorial requirements as articles. Moreover, reviewed texts must not exceed three years of antiquity in relation with the issue's projected date of publication.

Perífrasis bases its editing style on the seventh edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, and all articles must comply with the following rules:

  • Format: Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins.
  • The article must include on its first page an abstract in English and Spanish no longer than 100 words, and five keywords.
  • In order to ensure impartiality in the evaluation, the author's name must not appear in any of the article's pages. The author's contact information (name, address, phone numbers, e-mail address, etc.) and academic affiliation must go on a separate file.
  • Once an article is accepted, the author must send by e-mail his or her updated CV (titles, studies, current position, institutions he or she belongs to, and all publications done in the last three years in books and journals). The research project he or she belongs to and from which the article derives must also be specified.
