Scope and policy

Papers are published in Desarrollo Económico. Revista de Ciencias Sociales after they have been selected by the Editorial Board. Through the years, the latter has been made up by social scientists coming from the most important Argentine centers of research. The journal is completely opened to contributions from local and regional academic circles of all kind. At the same time, with the aim of supporting the task of teaching institutions and of contributing to scientific discussions, it promotes the translation into Spanish and publishing of relevant works in different fields. To fulfill its task, the Editorial Board - all of whose members work honorarily - designates referees from within its ranks or outside experts that are always acknowledged figures in the corresponding field.


Manuscript preparation

(2) The manuscript should be typewritten double-spaced in letter-size paper on only one side and sent with two copies. (Each page should contain 70 characters by line, and there should not be more than 30 lines in the page.) The printed copies should be accompanied with a diskette containing the paper in its electronic format, with indication of the word-processing program used.

(3) Length of works: Articles should have no more than 40 pages, while book reviews should have no more than 8.

(4) Each paper must include an abstract of its content, both in Spanish and English, no longer than 20 lines.

Data on articles will be similarly registered, with the exception that the article name should be between inverted commas, and the name of the journal in which it was published should be italicized. If bibliographical references are included in the main text, a complete "Bibliography" should be added, in alphabetical order, at the end of the work.
