Scope and policy
The Engineering Magazine is a bi-annual publication of the Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad de los Andes which is setting out to serve as a medium for publishing original and unpublished articles based on the results of the academic and professional activities, with high scientific or technological quality in the different fields of engineering.
The Engineering Magazine hopes to be one of the principal vehicles for publishing the knowledge of Engineering in Colombia and Latina America and to be highly consulted and recognized in the academic and scientific circles of the region.
The Engineering Magazine, by focusing on topics of engineering, is directed especially at the national and international academic and scientific community. Nevertheless, the Dossier section will cover specific themes relevant to society and therefore will reach a more general audience with interest in such topics from the focused perspective of the different discipline areas of engineering.
Article’s selection process
The evaluation process (which lasts from 3 to 6 months) consists of a pre-selection of articles by the editorial committee and afterward a double blinded evaluation will be performed by a pair of academics specialized in the topic. The articles are graded as: Accepted, Accepted with minor corrections, Accepted with major corrections, or Not Accepted. Once the editorial committee has the evaluations, a letter is sent to the author(s) with the verdict and a document with the evaluations and the suggestions and changes to be made (content and form) as suggested by the evaluators. The authors will have two months from the sending date of the verdict to make the necessary changes and to send it back. Once the second version has been received, the editorial committee will once again send it on to the evaluators to give their final verdict. According to this final verdict, the editorial committee will make their final decision regarding the publication of the article. Once approved, the author receives notification by email and will have to sign a publication authorization authorizing the intellectual property rights and the publication in the optical, magnetic and electronic mediums, on network, and the incorporation of the title, author(s), abstracts and the complete texts of the articles in the national and international databases or WebPages. In accordance with copyright laws, each collaborator will receive two copies of the issue in which the text will be published.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
The Engineering Magazine is a bi-annual publication of the Engineering Faculty of the Universidad de los Andes in which the most outstanding research brought forward by researchers and docents will be presented to the community as well as new technical proposals and documented revisions on current topics in the different fields of engineering.
Each issue of the magazine will have three main sections: The Technical Section , which includes articles on diverse engineering topics; the Dossier which will be focused on articles based on specific proposals made by the editorial and scientific committees; and the A Look Back Section in which milestones which have taken place at the Universidad de los Andes are presented.
Academics and professionals are encouraged to send their unpublished articles on outstanding papers and research for the Technical Section as well as the Dossier . We also encourage our readers to write and send us articles responding to previously published materials which will serve as a response, analysis or deeper exploration of these articles. These will be included in a Public Forum Section.
The articles should be sent in printed and magnetic format to the following address:
Original and unpublished articles will be considered (in Spanish or English) written in Word or Latex which are no longer than 8 letter-size pages (including images and graphs) with symmetrical margins of 2.5 cm., without columns, written in Times New Roman font size 12 and single spaced.
The images should be in black and white and have a high resolution (300 dpi in actual size) and should be sent within the text and in an independent electronic file (jpg or tiff format). The tables, charts and graphics should be sent in their original file so as to be able to make modifications.
The articles should be presented in the following format:
*The bibliography corresponds to the cited or referenced texts used in the article and only appears at the end. Each citation should end with a number in brackets in ascending form that corresponds with each reference.
