Call for Papers for the third volume of

The editorial board of the journal Derecho y Crítica Social [Law and Social Criticism] (DCS) invites submission of manuscripts for publication in the fifth volume, belonging to the year 2019. We welcome contributions from scholars with institutional membership and independent academics, as well as from university students. The call to publish in DCS is permanent and manuscripts can be sent at any time; as a suggestion, we recommend sending contributions until June 30 for inclusion in the first issue of this year.

DCS is a platform for critical examination of the legal from the most diverse disciplinary perspectives. DCS is a Latin American, multidisciplinary journal that is published in electronic format, and is subject to a strict policy of peer review. DCS will publish original articles in Spanish or English that are the result of original research, and Spanish translations of relevant articles previously published in other languages. However, it also seeks that the papers published in it produce a reflection beyond the academic space about the social problems affecting Latin America. In particular, DCS is interested in identifying the role that law plays as a cause, condition or possible solution to these problems.

Manuscripts submitted to DCS must follow the general guidelines for academic publications, including an abstract describing its contents; an introduction that identifies the objectives of the work and the methodology that it will deploy in their achievement; they must develop adequately its argument, as well as having a conclusion; and will have to comply with the ethical norms about authorship attribution.
