About the essays

a) Essays should be written in a clear, engaging, and simple style, with the goal of making them accessible to a wide audience without sacrificing philosophical rigour and argumentation. The goal of this essay is to present the depth and meticulousness of philosophy in an agile, provocative, and straightforward manner, including originality and creativity, without the density and technical jargons often found in traditional academic writing.

b) The first page should include titles in Spanish and English, abstracts in Spanish and English, and keywords in both languages. It should also include the name(s) of the author(s), academic affiliation, email address, and ORCID ID. Additionally, at the bottom of the page, a brief biography should be included, indicating all academic degrees, current occupations, and the last three publications. At the end of the essay, a list of references to the texts used should be included. The same criteria as the articles should be followed for the first page of the essay and for citing references within the essay and in the References section.

c) The essay will be evaluated following the same evaluation process as an article (editor, director, and peer reviewers), considering its relevance to the Editorial Policies of the Revista de Filosofía UCSC; the importance and relevance of the problem posed; the quality of the writing, which should be accessible, elegant, and rigorous; and the correct exposition of a specific problem.

d) The length of the article should be between 3,000 words and 5,000 words.

About the reviews

a) Minimum bibliographic data must be included for proper identification: title, author(s), editor(s) and/or translator(s), if applicable; publisher; place of publication; year; number of pages; and ISBN or equivalent code. For books reviewed in other languages, we respected the bibliographic data in the original language.

b) The review, regardless of its length, should provide an overview of the content, without neglecting any criticisms or observations that the author deemed relevant to make.

c) Avoid the use of footnotes. If a passage is referenced from the reviewed text, the location is identified in parentheses.

d) The author should include their full name (avoiding the use of abbreviations) at the end of the text on the left-hand margin, along with their academic affiliation (if they have more than one, mention the one with the closest connection to the author), and contact email.

e) It is recommended that the book being reviewed be no more than three years old.
