Article Arbitration and Publication Procedure:

Anagramas, seeks to make useful and reliable contributions to researchers in communication. The traditional process of anonymous referees reviewing ensures the level of rigor and originality required. Anagramas is an arbitrated journal that uses the system of external review by experts, according to the publication rules of the American Psychological Association (apa). The fulfillment of these requirements facilitates their indexation in the main international databases, which guarantees a broader diffusion of published works.

Under the double-blind modality, all articles are reviewed by the Editorial Committee, which verifies the full compliance with the requested criteria found in these instructions. In case of not complying with any of these requirements, the author (authors) will be informed.

After this initial review, the documents are sent to expert peers who evaluate the scientific and academic quality of the works. Once the external academic peers’ concepts are received, a decision is made, which can be acceptance with adjustments, final acceptance, or rejection.


Anagramas stipulates the following times for the evaluation process:

a) Preliminary phase of manuscript acceptance or rejection (maximum 30 days)

b) Evaluation phase of manuscripts with their rejection or acceptance including adjustments (maximum 150 days)

c) Text editing in preprint (digital). Abstracts publication in English. (15 days)


Phases of the Peer Review Process

  •  Call for papers: The Journal makes four call for papers a year; In them the recommendations to the authors are presented and explained. The call is done electronically on the web in the different academic portals.
  • Preselection: The Editorial Committee makes a pre-selection of the material, notifying the authors that their articles will be submitted to an arbitration process by academic peers.
  • Arbitration: For the Editorial Committee, anonymity in the process is necessary, since the transparency of the process is guaranteed through the double-blind modality.
  • Guarantees: After obtaining the different evaluations on the part of the evaluating peers, the Editorial Committee meets and with the evaluation results, postulates the different articles to be published.
