TYPE OF ARTICLES PUBLISHED 

THEORETICAL ARTICLES

In the theoretical articles, the authors take previous research to present a new theory within the same line of the investigations found, a model, a theory, or a system is proposed to understand a phenomenon or set of phenomena, a concrete reality or a domain of knowledge. Normally, the author presents a new theory after expanding and refining the knowledge found. Another purpose of these articles is to analyze existing theories in certain fields in order to point out inaccuracies in previous works. It can also be shown that one paper is more valid than another, either because some papers are more comprehensive than others or because of the time lag of others.

This journal asks for the organization of the article in sections, preferably: introduction, methodology, development, and conclusions.

RESEARCH ARTICLES

The objective is to publish for the first time the results of a study carried out, describing a complete research project or a part of it. It is a scientific research that comes from the logical reasoning for its authors and provides new data, addresses residual gaps in knowledge, exposes aspects not previously considered, analyses complementary elements, or makes further deepening and expansion of previous research.

It uses the IMRyD structure, corresponding to the introduction, the methodology, the results, and the discussion or conclusions.

CASE STUDY

It is empirical research that studies contemporary phenomenon within its real context, where the boundaries between the phenomenon and the context are not clearly visible, and where different sources of evidence are used. It focuses on the detail of the interaction with its contexts, the uniqueness, and complexity of a particular case in order to understand its activity in important circumstances. The case study aims to develop hypotheses, explore, explain, describe, evaluate, and/or transform. Can produce knowledge or confirm theories that were already known. Is an inductive strategy or tool which goes from the particular to the general.

The case study has its principles and intentionality in the observation-description of the phenomenon, in the exploration of the reality for the regeneration of explanatory hypotheses on the behavior, the causes and the effects of the phenomenon, the contrast-justification of the proposed hypotheses in the idea of guaranteeing its true capacity of explanation.

It uses the IMRyD structure, corresponding to the introduction, the methodology, the results, and the discussion or conclusions.

1. LENGTH

We strongly encourage authors to keep original submissions to fewer than 6,500 words (Not including bibliographic references). This target is in keeping with our overall publishing goals, and it offers successful authors the freedom to increase the word count during the revisions process. We will allow original submissions of up to an absolute maximum of 8,500 words. Write to one space, in A4 page size. The font style to be used will be Times New Roman of 12 points.

2. CITATIONS

All submissions must follow the APA 7th edition in the body of the text and follow by a complete list of papers cited at the end. For any necessary clarification of the APA style, check out one of the many online guides on the APA style, or check out the journal's previous issues. Make sure that the list of cited papers includes all cited references and has full bibliographic details; Don't just import quotes from an external program without editing and correcting the list of cited jobs.

Bibliographic citations should appear in the body of the text in the following format: author's last name, year of publication used in the bibliography, page number(s), all in parentheses. If two or more references have the same author and year, they should be differentiated using lowercase letters (a, b, c) after the year. To paraphrase an idea, use the same citation format omitting the page number.

Two aspects must be taken into account when presenting an idea with its respective credit: if it is quoted verbatim (direct quote) or paraphrased (indirect), and what is the focus that will be given to it, if on the author (quote narrative) or about the idea itself (parenthetical quote).

Direct quote

Direct citations can be short (up to 40 words) or block (more than 40 words):

Short quote

Parenthetical

Anger is considered a simple human reaction, and the sin of anger depends on the degree to which it manifests itself: "When the instinctual passionate movement of anger is awakened, it blinds us, studies us, and turns us into a kind of stubborn beast. This excess is detrimental, but I believe that a point of anger is necessary” (Savater, 2005, p. 81).

Narrative

For Savater, as for many, anger is a simple human reaction, and the sin of anger depends on the degree to which it manifests itself: “When the instinctual passionate movement of anger awakens, blinds us, studies us and makes us a kind of stubborn beast. This excess is detrimental, but I believe that a point of anger is necessary” (2005, p. 81).

Block Quotations

When including a long quotation in a paper, indent it as a "block" quotation instead of using quotation marks

Parenthetical:

In short, the settlement of whites, mestizos, and some slaves was due to the policies of aggregation and segregation of land for the exploitation of livestock and crops:

Legally, the assault on the lands of the Indians was justified. Between the years 1750 and 1800, when the indigenous communities of eastern Colombia were the object of a policy of aggregation-segregation of land, the number of sales of some 68 reservations was approximately 110,308 pesos. In 1778, Moreno and Escandón reported from San Gil that the sale of only 18 towns had represented an income to the treasury of 45,560 pesos (Tovar, 1986, p. 23).

Narrative:

When including a long quotation in a paper, indent it as a "block" quotation instead of using quotation marks

The settlement of whites, mestizos, and some slaves is directly related to the policies of aggregation and segregation of land, which Tovar warns, for the exploitation of livestock and crops:

Legally, the assault on the lands of the Indians was justified. Between the years 1750 and 1800, when the indigenous communities of eastern Colombia were subject to a policy of aggregation-segregation of land, the number of sales of some 68 resguardos was approximately 110,308 pesos. In 1778, Moreno and Escandón reported from San Gil that the sale of only 18 towns had represented an income to the treasury of 45,560 pesos (1986, p. 23).

 

Indirect Quotation


Parenthetical
Finally, rurality can refer to rural development, in which strategies of attention to marginalized, vulnerable, disarticulated populations, etc., are contemplated (Dirven et al., 2011).

Narrative
Finally, Dirven et al. (2011) define rurality based on rural development, which includes strategies for caring for marginalized, vulnerable, disarticulated populations, etc.

 

3. FOOTNOTES

Explanatory footnotes should be kept to an absolute minimum.

 

4. STYLE

The primary style goals are clarity and consistency. Authors may use either UK or US spelling, but they must do so consistently. For punctuation, please follow the standards for US English. This entails:

          - using double quotation marks, for quotes

          - placing all inverted commas within other punctuation

          - for the grammatical dash, using an en dash without spaces before and after the en dash

Separation of sections should be done using ordinal numbers

1. INTRODUCTION

    1.1 Subtitle

    1.2 Subtitle

     1.2.1 Subtitle

    2. METHODS

    2.1 Subtitle

    3. RESULTS

    4. DISCUSSIONS

    5. CONCLUSIONS

    REFERENCES

 

 

Authors should strive for clarity and concision and should assume a broad, interdisciplinary audience of non-specialists. Therefore, manuscripts should explain complex concepts, local reality, clarify and introduce special terminology, and avoid gesturing allusively to broad and dense literature that are not explicated fully in the text.

Finally, to ease the job of the reviewers, manuscripts should be single-spaced, with clear delineation of new paragraphs and with pages numbered consecutively.

 

5. BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES

The article must be written using APA citations.

Full references will be included at the end of the article according to the American Psychological Association (APA) and in ALPHABETICAL ORDER.

6. RECOMMENDATIONS to authors

 

  • Save your article as a DP-short version of the article title.docx
  • Write the article only in the third person.
  • For the use of quotes and citation forms, check the journal’s website in the quotes section or https://columbiacollege-ca.libguides.com/c.php?g=713274&p=5082923
  • Avoid self-citation as much as possible.
  • Avoid using non-academic language and making subjective statements. Try to be clear and explicit.
  • Avoid short or too long paragraphs (100 to 200 words maximum). Alternate the use of connectors that join the different paragraphs.
  • It is recommended that for your foundation use relevant, current authors, at least 30% of your references should come from authors and journals present in Journal Citation Reports (JCR), Scopus, REDIB, Dialnet Métricas, ERIHPLUS
  • Do not capitalize the names of sources or authors cited (ROMO, 2008, p. 9). They should always be written in sentence style (Romo, 2008, p. 9)
  • Tables and graphs: Whether it is a table or a graph, you must announce that a resource will be used. For example: The workflow for the production of a journal involves several aspects, as shown in figure 1.
