The text of an article, review or interview that is not in the formatting required above will not be sent to the reviewers for evaluation and will be returned to the author to make the necessary adjustments.

Important: the texts that are accepted for publication with changes suggested by the referees should be sent to our e-mail with the necessary corrections, and all of them (formatting, grammar, orthographic, conceptual, theoretical and methodological) must be indicated in a separate document. (in Word) and sent with the text.

The content of the publications is the sole responsibility of the authors. When submitting the article, review or interview for evaluation by the Editorial Board, the author will agree with this norm.
