- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
- The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.

The author is fully committed to avoid the submission of articles that might be published in Estudios Fronterizos, to other journals simultaneously. The author(s) will attach a letter of document originality to their proposal, declaring that the proposed document is an original piece and that said document has not been fully or partially published in any printed, electronic, online or any other media publication before; they must also state that their sources are fully cited and referenced, thus proving that they own the publishing rights to the proposed document, as well as the contents and materials included in the article, or that they have been authorized by the owner, so that any claim is full responsibility of the author of said work.
The letter of document originality must be signed by every participating author and sent in PDF format to the following email:.firstname.lastname@example.org. Only documents with a maximum of three participating articles will be received; Proposals with a higher number of participating authors will be received as long as the complexity and length of the document justifies the amount of participants. In such case, the editorial team will require further documented proof stating that said article is the product of a researching team and its efforts.
Once an author’s work has been published in Estudios Fronterizos, they should wait at least three editions from the time their article was published to resubmit a new proposal, previously evaluated and approved by the journal. Estudios Fronterizo’s editorial team will translate those articles approved for publication, into English; the translated version will be sent to the author for further approval before its final publication.
The editorial coordination at Estudios Fronterizos reserves the right to make any style corrections or editorial changes they consider appropriate for the improvement of the document. Likewise, the editorial coordination might forward or delay any approved articles with the purpose of improving the thematic composition of each number. Estudios Fronterizos does not charge APCs or submission charges.
