Author Guidelines

TEMPLATE: jotse.doc

JOTSE accepts reviewing scientific articles related to the journal's focus and scope. The papers can be sent in English or Spanish.

Papers written in English: Papers written in poor English we suggest a revision. Additionally we can ask you for a certificate of translation. JOTSE does not assume the cost of revision but offers the service. The authors should pay for this service.

Papers written in Spanish: If this manuscript is finally accepted this must be translated. The translation will be done by JOTSE and the author must pay for the service.

All papers, written in Spanish or English, must be original (not published in another journal or any other media).

Along the reviewing process, it is forbidden that the contribution follows a parallel reviewing process in another journal.

The articles may be sent in Word (.doc / .docx). The journal's editorial team will acknowledge the receipt of originals. In order to follow the formatting instructions, it is strongly recommended to use the journal's templates for contributors, available on doc format.

Full author name's, no initials: In academic publishing, it is crucial to maintain the highest standards of clarity and precision, and this includes accurately identifying the authors of a given work. As such, we require that all authors of an article provide their full names, rather than relying on initials. This is because using initials can introduce confusion and ambiguity, particularly if multiple authors share the same initials. Moreover, using full names allows us to identify the gender of each author, which is an important consideration in ensuring equitable representation in the academic community. In the interest of inclusivity and promoting diversity, it is critical that we accurately represent the gender identities of all authors, and this can only be achieved through the use of full names. We, therefore, request that all authors of a manuscript provide their full names in order to facilitate accurate identification and equitable representation. By adhering to this standard, we can ensure that our publications meet the highest standards of quality, rigor, and inclusivity.

Inclusive and non-sexist language: We strongly encourage authors to utilize inclusive and non-sexist language in their work. In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of using language that is free from biases and that is inclusive of all individuals, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or other personal characteristics. One important aspect of using inclusive language is to avoid the use of gendered language. This includes avoiding the use of words like "he" or "she" when referring to individuals whose gender is unknown or who identify as non-binary. Instead, authors should use gender-neutral language, such as "they" or "their". Additionally, authors should be mindful of the use of pronouns and other language that may be exclusive of individuals who identify as non-binary. It is important to be sensitive to the fact that individuals may have different gender identities and that language should reflect this diversity. Overall, the use of inclusive and non-sexist language is an important aspect of scientific writing. By using language that is free from biases and that is inclusive of all individuals, authors can help to ensure that their work is accessible and respectful to all readers.

Conclusions of the paper male/female differences: In academic writing, it is imperative to provide comprehensive and accurate conclusions that reflect the findings of the study. In some cases, the conclusions may differ based on the sex of the individuals involved, and it is important to acknowledge this potential variability in order to provide a more nuanced and accurate assessment of the results. As such, we require that authors include a statement in their conclusions that addresses the potential differences in findings based on sex. This may involve a discussion of any observed sex-based differences, or an acknowledgment of the potential for such differences in future research. It is also important to note that in some cases, it may not be appropriate or feasible to differentiate the conclusions based on sex. In these instances, authors should include a statement in their conclusions that explains that sex-based differentiation is not applicable or has not been studied, as it falls outside the scope and objectives of the article. By including these important considerations in the conclusions of the article, authors can ensure that their work is comprehensive, nuanced, and inclusive, reflecting a commitment to rigorous and responsible scholarship.

Acknowledgment (optional field): Authors can thank to people or institutions that have helped them.

Declaration of conflicting interests (required field): In this section the authors will declare if there is some conflict interest.

Funding (required field): Before the references section, authors should declare if some people or institutions have financed the research presented in the article. The funding agency(ies) and the code(s) of the project(s) within the framework(s) of which the research has been developed must be indicated which has resulted in the publication.

Bibliographical references: At the end of the main contents of the document (prior to appendices), authors should include the bibliographical references cited along the text. The references must be written in text using APA 5th edition style.
