Tecnura is a peer-reviewed journal with a double-blind peer-review process. The periodicity of the conformation of its Scientific and Editorial Committees is subject to the publication of articles in internationally indexed journals by their respective members.
The Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, its directors, the Editor, the Editorial and Scientific Committees are not responsible for the opinion and criteria expressed in the content of the articles and these are published under the sole responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the thoughts of the Editorial Committee.
Considering the quarterly periodicity of the journal, the Editorial Committee calls for articles four times a year, approximately in February, May, August and November. Articles will be received up to the maximum date established in each call for papers.
Each article submitted to Tecnura is reviewed by two academic peers external to the authors’ institution, through a double-blind “Peer-review” process, guaranteeing the anonymity of the authors and evaluators; all work received is considered confidential and the evaluators are required to do so.

Once the original manuscript is received, according to the requirements of the Journal, and after verification of the checklist, the study will be evaluated by a member of the editorial committee who will define if it is within the topics that are part of the scope of the Journal; subsequently, it is sent for peer review in the following eight days. All papers are evaluated anonymously.
The RCOG editorial team believes that the duty of any scientific journal is to ensure the dissemination and transfer of knowledge, guaranteeing rigor and scientific quality, with a high ethical commitment. The Journal has as reference the Code of Conduct and Good Practice for Editors of Scientific Journals of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE: Committee on Publication Ethics), of which we are members since 2016. The RCOG rejects plagiarism and uses instruments for its detection.
As the highest decision-makers of the Journal, RCOG editors are committed to: strive to meet the needs of readers and authors; constantly improve the journal; ensure the quality of the material they publish; ensure freedom of expression; maintain the academic integrity of its content; prevent commercial interests from compromising intellectual standards; be ready to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when necessary.
Section that gathers research or review articles on various topics. The texts present the results of research carried out from primary sources, methodologies and updated bibliography.
When the current call for papers closes, the articles are reviewed by the editorial team. In the first filter, the editorial team takes into account the following criteria: title, abstract (appropriate to the IMRyD structure), theoretical framework, conclusions, sources and bibliography. The articles that meet the conditions of the first filter pass to a second filter that corresponds to the evaluation by external peers. This is a double-blind peer review process carried out by two academic peers, who in most cases are external to the publishing institution. In case of contradiction in the concepts, a third evaluator will be appointed. The estimated time to notify the concept of the article (accepted or rejected) is approximately 6 months from the date of receipt of the contents.
The journal is aimed at researchers, professors, professionals, graduates and students of humanities and social sciences. It aims to foster a fruitful dialogue between scholars from Latin America and the Caribbean, transcend national and period boundaries and contribute to the construction of a Latin American community interested in the reflection of a connected and global transnational history.
