Sobre México Economic Journal publishes peer-reviewed articles that cover a wide range of applied economic topics relevant to the understanding and design of economic and social policy in Mexico.
Original articles that have not been published and that are not being submitted simultaneously for publication in another medium will be considered for possible publication. Articles must be rigorous and must research relevant issues.
Articles must be evaluated by the Editorial Committee and reviewed anonymously (double-blind). The Editorial Committee will decide if the article meets the basic requirements of a scientific piece and if it matches the editorial line of Sobre México.
Once the first evaluation has been completed, the Editorial Committee will select two external reviewers, who will be national or international researchers and/or academics with recognized experience in the area of the article to be evaluated.
Within a maximum period of 6 weeks, the reviewers will issue a report, based on relevance, originality and academic quality. They may suggest modifications related to the content, structure, methodology, data, references and others that they consider relevant. There are four possible evaluation results:
If the article requires modifications, the author(s) must send the article again within a maximum period of 1 week for minor corrections and 3 weeks for major corrections, from the moment the notification was received. The reviewers should verify that their observations have been incorporated and issue a new report. They will have a maximum period of 3 weeks. If the referees determine that the article does not incorporate the requested modifications, the Editorial Committee may decide to request a new revision to the authors or to reject the article.
In the event that one reviewer accepts the article and the other rejects it, the Editorial Committee may request the opinion of a third reviewer. The Editorial Committee is responsible for the resolution of any dispute.
Accepted articles will pass to the style correction phase. If necessary, the authors will be asked for style corrections, which must be sent within a maximum period of 1 week. Finally, the article will proceed to the diagramming and layout phase.
The articles must be sent in electronic version through the Submission System, creating a user or accessing with a previously created user: with this link
