Specific information

The Dixit Editorial Committee decides if the works received agree with the focus and editorial style of the journal. The Committee also determines which issue will include which works and which photographs will be attached to the texts.The authors are responsible for the content of their articles or art works.

The articles from section “Desde la Academia” are peer-reviewed according to a double-blind system, i.e. the author does not know the names of the referees nor do they know the author’s name.

This review system turns to consultants outside the Universidad Católica del Uruguay and also to specialist from the institution itself. Each article is assessed by two referees, who determine whether the article in question is “apt for publication”' or “apt for publications once corrections have been incorporated” or “not approved for publication”. When an article receives verdicts of "Publishable with corrections", Dixit's Editorial Committee is responsible of verifying that these corrections have been addressed. If the author declines to make any of the corrections, he must provide a written justification so that the Editorial Committee can analyze the case. When an article receives a verdict of "Unpublishable" and a verdict of "Publishable" or of "Publishable with corrections": first, the author must overcome the objections raised; then, Dixit's Editorial Committee ensures that the work receives a third arbitration. When an article receives two "Unpublishable" opinions, the work is rejected. In all cases, the judgments are sent to the authors. When an article is accepted, it is edited and proofread. The article is sent to the author for final adjustment, approval and gallery proof. Contributions sent to Dixit can not be submitted for publication in other journals. The judgment is delivered to the authors within a 60 days period, counted from the date the work was received.

In submitting their articles, the authors declare that they are original and unpublished and free from plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. Dixit will not accept works containing more than a 30% of self-plagiarism.
