Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • 1. The submission is the result of the author’s/authors’ own personal research and nobody else has been involved other than the stated author(s). The submission has not been previously published or submitted to another journal while under consideration by the editors of ES Review.
  • 2. The article is to be sent in as a Microsoft Word document.
  • 3. If the article contains images, illustrations, figures or tables, the author has checked that they are in their proper place within the text and not at the end. The author must also have the permission required to reproduce all images.
  • 4. The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines. See section ‘About: Submissions.’
  • 5. When submitting to a section of the journal, the instructions in ‘Ensuring a Blind Review’ must be followed.
  • 6. When submitting an article in Step 3: ‘Introduction of Metadata,’ the author must make sure that his/her first name and family name, as well as email, are included. In addition, the title of the article and keywords, as well as the abstract in Spanish and English, must be included along with the submission. In order to include this information, select Spanish at the top of the page and include the information in Spanish, then select English and include the information in English. Authors must also give the information about their affiliation, the postal address of his/her institution, her/his academic position, and if he/she has one, should include their ORCID number.

Author Guidelines

1. Proposals must be submitted online, using the link above ("Login or Register to make a submission") and the following template: template for articles / template for reviews.

2. Authors must ensure that all identifying markers in the text and in the document properties are removed from the submitted proposal. No personal details may appear in the text of the manuscript or in the properties of the file.

3. Authors of reviews must submit a brief CV (to be uploaded at the same time that they upload the review).

4. Authors of articles are asked to provide the following information in a separate file (to be uploaded at the same time that they upload the article):

- Author’s full name*:

- Institution/Affiliation:

- Department:

- Position:


- Institutional address:

- Institutional e-mail:

- Statement that the article is not under consideration in any other publication.

*If there is more than one author, please include all the information from each.
If authors do not comply with these preliminary requirements, their proposals will be returned.

5. The proposals should address theoretical or empirical issues related to the research areas within the journal's scope.

Article proposals should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words in extension including all sections (i.e. abstract, keywords, text, tables, illustrations, acknowledgements, footnotes and references).

Book reviews should be from 1,500 to 2,000 words in extension (books reviewed should have been released in the last two years).

6. Each article proposal must be accompanied by a 100-word abstract and 5 keywords or phrases, both in English and in Spanish. The abstract and the keywords should convey the essential aspects of the contribution. A summary of the various sections of the article must also be provided.

7. Whenever possible, articles should follow an internal structure similar to that of the IMRyD model (Introduction-Method-Results-Discussion) for the communication of scientific results. This way, the evaluators can rate the work considering the following rubric:

-Introduction. The introduction should be understood to offer the object of study, describing the problem it attempts to address, the method of analysis and the primary and secondary sources utilized.

 -Development. The central part of the text should be used to analyze the object of study. Authors may utilize as many epigraphs and sections as necessary.

 -Conclusion. This section should be utilized to concretize in a systematic and precise way the results of the research. Important and original contributions offered by the research results should be emphasized, as well as possible research lines offered by the findings that can contribute to the debate of the historiographical community.

8. Requirements of article proposals to be considered for publication:

    8.1. The articles must be original and include relevant critical reflections concerning any of the topics relevant to ES Review.

    8.2. The articles must be adequately and clearly written, following the style sheet described below.

    8.3. The articles must present a sound theoretical approach, a well-designed methodology, well-supported statements and results, as well as reasonable conclusions.

    8.4. The book reviews should include a concise and accurate summary of the book under consideration, providing a clear idea of the contents.

9. Style sheet
