Scope and policy

CADERNO CRH, a Social Sciences journal published at four month intervals, accepts the free collaboration of unpublished texts of renowned academic interest and updated topics on Social Sciences, namely papers, bibliographic essays and reviews. Each number presents a thematic dossier on a specific topic, organized by invited writers of renowned academic experience and that represents an original contribution to debate, being submitted to the revision process carried out by their peers.

In both cases, it is essential that the papers be submitted to the editors in their final version, with theoretical consistency and a coherent background, besides being somehow original. Technical information shall be avoided in the body of the text, being limited to its background. The authors shall not simultaneously submit their papers to more than one national journal.

The publication of the texts is conditioned to the opinions of the Advisory Board and to the Editorial Board, ensuring the anonymity of the authors. Any future suggestions of modification of structure or content by the Editors will be previously agreed by the authors. Modifications or additions will not be allowed after the works have been submitted to typesetting.


Form and preparation of manuscripts

The journal accepts the following types of contribution:.

Thematic Dossier - the invited editor (organizer of the dossier) asks the authors to send unpublished papers related to the previously selected topic, pursuant to the journal planning, making the decision on the publication based on ad hoc reviewers.

Original papers by free demand-The texts are initially submitted to a preliminary revision to comply with the required publication standards (the non-compliance with the instructions will imply the interruption of this process).  The texts are then sent to the Advisory Board to analyze the nature of the paper and its suitability for publication that makes the decision on the submission.  Afterwards, they are sent to the reviewers, ensuring authors and consultants' anonymity.

The papers (dossier and by free demand) may undergo further modifications in form or content by the publishing company; however these shall be previously agreed with the authors. The journal will not accept additions or modifications by the authors after the final typesetting process has started.

Reviews - They can originate both from the free demand and from invitation, ensuring the program flow.  The Editorial Board and the review editor make the decisions regarding the publication, bearing in mind the topic, the present time and quality.
