Author Guidelines

We accept submissions of manuscripts in English and Spanish, with a maximum limit of 12,000 words (including notes and bibliography) per article using the MLA formatting style.

Articles for publication sent to ConSecuencias should be original and not published or under consideration for publication anywhere else. All articles for consideration should have a 150-word abstract, in both English and Spanish. Please provide six keywords in both Spanish and English at the bottom of the abstract. Articles are reviewed anonymously, which is why the author’s name should not appear on the title page, and references to the author should be made in the third person.

Every work submitted to the journal undergoes a rigorous peer evaluation process. A member of the editorial board first reads the submission, then presents the essay to a member of the advisory board with expertise in the area. The two editors make the final recommendation for one of these options: rejection, revision and re-submission, re-submission with minor revisions, acceptance.

Articles must conform fully to style guidelines when submitted. Authors must obtain any permissions necessary to print images or other copyrighted materials.

Please use endnotes, and in the bibliography, cite only the works directly consulted.

Send the finished article as an email attachment (word, not PDF) to:
