Comunicación y Hombre has three different sections in its acceptance policy: Studies, Research and Reviews. Each of these three sections always has in its selection policy a first acceptance from the editor of the magazine and the editorial committee of the same; In addition, the article must pass a formal review in which it is verified that it complies with the Publication Standards. Otherwise, the article will be returned for adaptation to the guidelines that the journal follows; You must also pass an anti-plagiarism control tool; Once these steps have been completed, all articles will be subject to Double Blid Review.

In the case of acceptance with reservations, the article will be returned to the author for adaptation according to the evaluator’s suggestions. Once completed, it will be returned to the magazine to restart the evaluation process.
