FORM AND PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS:

 

  1. ASSESSMENT BY THE EDITORIAL TEAM

 

  1. Sociological Teaching publishes articles by doctoral students. Different cases will be exceptional and evaluated individually;
  2. Submissions are only made via the Sociological Teaching website; 
  3. Submissions will be assessed by the journal's editorial team, who will carry out an initial screening. Those that are accepted will then be evaluated by at least two specialists in the subject who have no conflict of interest with the article. They will issue opinions without knowledge of their authorship (double-blind evaluation) and will remain anonymous to the author(s).
  4. Articles that show plagiarism or more than 20% self-plagiarism will not be accepted, and these will be duly referenced to the original work. The journal uses software and research methods to detect plagiarism. Ethical issues and good academic practices must be observed by authors, such as explaining the sources of funding and approval by ethics committees of the research generating the articles, when applicable. Authors are asked to make a declaration in this regard at the time of submission.
  5. The information, descriptions, analyses and other content of the articles are the responsibility of the authors;
  6. Authors will be notified via the journal's system of the final approval or rejection of their articles. 
  7. Any suggestions or indications of changes to the structure and/or content that may be necessary will be notified to the author, who will be responsible for making them within a maximum of one month. If these changes are not made to the author's satisfaction, the article will not be approved;
  8. No additions or modifications will be allowed once the texts have been submitted to the journal.
  9. The work must be presented in accordance with the cultured standard of the national or foreign language, and the author may be asked to have it revised by a specialized professional.

  2. The first page of the original should contain the title of the article (and subtitle, if any).
  3. All information and citations that can identify the authorship of the manuscript must be removed without detriment to the content or, in their respective places, the word "author" must be indicated (such as bibliographical references), since the evaluation will be double-blind. Measures to avoid conflicts of interest and preserve the satisfactory conduct of editorial procedures must be informed by the author(s) to the Editorial Team at the time of submission;
  4. Articles must be accompanied by an abstract in English of up to 150 words summarizing the objective(s), methods and main conclusions. They should also include five key words in English. Articles in other languages must include these same elements in the chosen language;

Reviews of works published in the last five years are accepted. The reviews will be presented with their own title, followed by the full reference of the book reviewed and, at the end, with the bibliographical references of the other works in dialogue that support their considerations.
  6. Interviews should be conducted with relevant researchers in the field of Sociology who are close to the reflections on their trajectories in the area of Sociology teaching. 
  7. Textual quotations will appear "in quotation marks" in the body of the text when they are shorter than three lines, and in a new paragraph, with indentation, body 10, when they are three lines or longer.
