Scope and policy
The Yearbook of Regional History and Borders publishes original articles containing the original empirical research, to present theoretical innovations on debates in historical performance or develop historiographical balances; reviews and bibliographical essays, translations of articles published abroad in languages other than Spanish and transcripts of archival sources with an explanatory introduction are also published.
The Journal reserves the copyright, so, if an item you want to be included later in another publication, the data shall be clearly identified in the original publication in the Yearbook.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
Upon receipt of an article, the editorial board evaluates if it meets the requirements outlined below, as well as their relevance to be included in a publication of historical character. All contributions are subject to evaluation. If there are comments by the evaluators, the author must do the suggested changes or make the adjustments it deems necessary for overcoming the difficulties indicated. The authors will have a maximum of fifteen (15) days to deliver the final version of their texts. The editorial committee reserves the final say on the publication of articles and the issue in which they will be published, said information will be notified to the author as soon as it is known. That date shall be effective provided the author submits the documentation that is required within the indicated term. The journal reserves the right to make style editing. Both during the evaluation process and during the editing process, email is the preferred means of communication with the authors. The authors will receive two copies of the issue in which had their article published.
Articles should be sent to the editor of the Yearbook of Regional History of Universidad Industrial de Santander by email, in Word format, to any of these addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
The author's information should be listed in an attachment and include his or her name, address, telephone number, email address, academic degrees, institutional membership, current positions, ongoing studies and publications in books and journals. It is also useful to indicate, if relevant, which research the resulting article comes from and how it was funded.
Articles should not exceed 25 pages, including footnotes. They should be written in Times New Roman size 12, single spaced, and in letter size paper. Footnotes should be in Times New Roman size 10, single spaced. The bibliography, charts, graphs, illustrations, photographs and maps are not included.
You must enclose a 200-word abstract in Spanish and English and a list of three to six keywords that fit the Unesco Thesaurus Se (http://databases.unesco.org/thessp/). The abstract should be analytical, that is, show the objectives of the article, its content and results. Reviews should consist of no more than three single-spaced pages in Times New Roman, size 12 in letter size paper.
Article or text body:
The articles should not exceed 50,000 characters without spaces, including footnotes and the bibliography page. They should be written in Times New Roman 12 point, with single spacing, paginated and in letter size paper. The subdivisions in the text (chapters, subchapters, etc.) must be unnumbered. The Latin terms and foreign words must appear in italics. The first time an abbreviation is used, it must be enclosed in parentheses after the complete abbreviation is used; on the further occasions, only the abbreviation will be used. The quotations that exceed four lines should be placed in the form of long quote, quotation marks, single spaced, font size 11 and small margins (1 centimeter on each side.) The omitted information of a quote should be marked with brackets and ellipsis (...).
There must be double spacing between paragraphs; these will have no indentation. Pictures, graphics, illustrations, photographs and maps must appear referenced and explained in the text. Likewise, they must have titles, and they must be sequentially numbered and accompanied by their respective captions and source(s). They will be located immediately after the paragraph where mentioned. The images will be delivered in digital format of good quality. It is the responsibility of the author to get permission for the publication of figures that require it. Footnotes: Notes must be footnotes, Times New Roman font, size 10, single spaced and they shall be established following the requirements presented below. They must appear in Arabic numerals and must be numbered sequentially, excluding asterisks. The footnote number must appear immediately (without space) after the last word of the sentence and before the punctuation mark. A space must be left between the quotation index footer and the point where it begins
At the end of the article, the bibliography must be written in Times New Roman size 11, single spaced and without indentations. It will be organized in primary and secondary sources, presenting the former in the following parts: file, publications, books. Titles should be in alphabetical order following the same parameters as for the footnotes. In the bibliography, the complete references of every source used in the article should be included, not including titles that are not referenced in the footnotes.
For the next issues, the Yearbook editors have decided to make some changes and propose an adaptation from the Chicago Manual of Style, according to issue number 15 related to Humanities Style. This involves separating two ways of writing references, one for Footnotes (Fn.) and another one for the Bibliography (Bibliogr.) Some examples are shown.
More than three authors:
Article from a book:
Article from a journal:
Archive source: The quotation intends to provide the reader with enough information to access the document in the file where it can be found.
Brochures and monographs are cited like books. The CDROM publications are cited like book by adding [CD-Rom], at the end of the reference.
In footnotes: Ibid will be used when the reference is the same than the one immediately preceding. The number of the page or pages cited will be indicated provided that these are different from those mentioned in the immediately preceding note.
Op. cit. will be used when the work has been cited before, but not in the immediately preceding footnote. It shall be cited like this: SURNAME, Given Name, op. cit., p., pp.
When the text of an author is used several times, the first words of the title are transcribed from the second reference on, intending to collect in one sentence the meaning of the title like this: Surname, Given Name, First words of the title, p. o pp.
1 The first time it is cited.
2 They are written at the beginning of the next references, without parentheses or stops.
