The journal’s peer-review process considers submitted unpublished materials according to the typologies described below:
Scientific and technological research article: paper in which the author presents in detail the original results of finished research projects. The most usual structure includes four important parts: introduction, methodology, results, and findings.
Reflection article: paper incorporating the results of finished research about a specific topic in which the author resorts to original sources, from an analytical, interpretative, or critic perspective.
Review article: paper resulting from a finished research, that analyzes, systematizes, and integrates the results of published or unpublished research in the specific scientific or technological field, whose purpose is to shed light on the advances and new tendencies for development. One of its main features is a thorough bibliographic review and the inclusion of a substantial amount of references.
Short article: Brief document in which the author presents original results, preliminary or partial, from a scientific or technology research, or presents an artwork of his or her authorship. In the latter case, the artist exhibits, gives details or expound his or her thoughts on the work of art and its creation process. The artwork might be presented in diverse media: graphic (photography, engraving, musical score, etc.), sound (audio files), audiovisual (video files), including audiovisual registers of performances. The exhibition must include all technical references, an author’s biographical profile no longer than 100 words, and a brief text (500 to 800 words) in which the artist discusses his or her creative process and the questions orienting the artwork’s universe of construction. Depending of the features of the artwork and the length of the exhibit, it will be included in the printed or in the online version of the journal. Audio and video files will be published in the webpage at the “multimedia” section, while artworks presented in two-dimensional media will be included in a section called “fotoensayo”.
Essay: Critic analysis not derived from a research project. Its purpose is to explore, register, discuss and make a dissertation about an artistic topic such as: cycles of artworks, series of concerts, theater festivals, and art exhibitions, audiovisual and electronic festivals.
Interview: a written account of a dialogue between an important artist with a specialist of the topic, which purpose is to collect and explore in depth the artist’s memories, experiences and the aesthetic perspective.
Review: short and argumentative text describing or summarizing, from a critical perspective, the most distinctive features of books, papers, theses, audiovisual records (phonographs, videos, film shorts, and others) and musical or artistic events that have exceptional impact, such as: congresses, concerts, expositions, theater productions, exhibits, biennials, film festivals and others.

The referees might value positively the paper, suggest changes or recommend not including it in the journal. In the case of reviews, they are directly requested to highly recognized professionals by the editorial committee.
