Calls for papers

Antípoda asks those who are interested to become informed of the journal’s ethical policies before presenting their writings, by consulting the website at: Política Editorial and to keep in mind the rules established for presenting texts, which should be unpublished original articles that are not submitted to any other journal. See here.

The articles that are received initially pass through a filter to verify their fulfillment of the criteria and ethical standards mentioned above. This filter will determine whether the text passes to the stage of valuation of academic quality and relevance by the Editor and the Editorial Committee. The results of this stage will determine whether the article is then sent to academic experts for external evaluation. The author will be informed of the results within a maximum period of six months from the end of the call for articles.
