INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Scope and policy
In order to submit and publish an article to Ingeniare, no cost should be paid. In addition, there are no charges to the author for the manuscript processing, so the entire process is free of charge.
The authors interested in publishing in Ingeniare. Revista chilena de ingeniería must send their works adjusted according to the rules and formatting stated bellow.
The topics must be related to engineering fields: electronics, electricity, computing, mechanics, industry, metallurgy, chemistry, engineering teaching and other related disciplines.
When submitting a paper the authors should do the following:
Selection process for articles submitted for publication
The editor will first verify that the content of the article is appropriate for this journal and that the manuscript is set in accordance with the journal's standards. The editor may reject, at his discretion, submissions that do not comply with the general directions, are poorly written or do not possess sufficient scientific or technological merit.
Articles that pass the preliminary selection are sent for peer review by specialists and scientists having known research work in areas related to the article. Upon assessing the article, peer reviewers write a report including comments and suggestions recommending its acceptance or rejection.
In the process of evaluation of the article, reviewers will consider the soundness of the experimental design, verifying that the conclusions coincide with the statistical and experimental data. Reviewers will also evaluate that the sources consulted by the author(s) were the most pertinent or relevant to the topic discussed. Wording and writing correctness as well as graphic quality will also be assessed.
During this process, the identity of the reviewers will not be known by the author(s), but the latter's will be available to the reviewers.
After assessing the reviewers' recommendations, the editor will make a decision based on the following options:
Accepting the article, subject to minor revisions: The editor will return the article to the author(s) with a list of suggestions for minor corrections, including his own as well as those made by the reviewers. Once the modified manuscript is received by the editor, a confirmation of acceptance of the article and the publication date will be sent back to the author(s).
Minor revisions in an article include: typographical errors, page numbering, articles cited in the text that are not in the bibliography and vice versa, slight discrepancies between the summaries and the abstract, as well as moderate corrections to the text.
Returning the article for major revisions: The editor will return the article to the author(s) with a list of suggestions for major corrections that must be made before the article is eventually accepted for publication.
Major revisions include: analyzing data using other statistical tests, adding or redoing figures and tables, replicating experiments, rewriting the discussion of the problem using additional literature and making substantial changes to the text. The revised article will be returned to the author with the observation "not publishable".
The author should return the article to the Editor, complying thoroughly with the observations, stating that the changes were made, in order to be accepted for a new evaluation by the editor and eventually peer reviewers.
Evaluation of the article, in this stage, will result as final acceptance or rejection.
Reject: The editor will return the article with the result of peer evaluation, reporting the reason(s) for the rejection. This decision will be final (in most cases).
Reasons for rejection of an article include: inappropriate content, manuscripts not complying with the requirements for publication and/or lacking scientific or technological merit.
