The Dossier integrates a set of contents about a specific problem or topic that present advances in or results of research, reflection or thematic review from a critical and analytical perspective, giving an account of new trends in a specific area of knowledge.

Other Voices differs from the Dossier in that it includes texts that present research studies, reflections and reviews that deal with a variety of problems or topics.

Documents disseminates one or more texts on topics of social interest that are addressed in a reflective way, generally by authorities on the subject. Translations and transcriptions of relevant contents from different areas of the social sciences are also published.

Debate is a section that includes contents on specific topics, oriented to generating academic discussions from different perspectives, either through interviews or analytical writings.

The Revista de Estudios Sociales is an Open Access journal. The structure of the Journal responds to an editorial policy that seeks: to provide a space for different discourses on theory, research, current affairs and bibliographical information; to facilitate the exchange of information on the Social Sciences in Latin American countries and the world in general; to disseminate the journal among various reading publics rather than just among academics; to incorporate diverse languages such as the essay, the story, the report and the debate, so that the knowledge will have social usefulness; and finally, to demonstrate a flexible notion of the concept of social research, in order to accommodate expressions that are foreign to the specific field of the Social Sciences.

Keywords: social sciences, research, reflection, thematic review.
