Scope and aims

Izquierdas (Lefts) is a quarterly scientific publication (released in January, April, July and October of each year), published by the Institute of Advanced Studies of the University of Santiago de Chile.

Its main forms of papers are: Scientific articles from research sponsored by public or private funds; Scholarly communications: papers presented at public events such as conferences, seminars, symposia, interviews, etc.; Studies of sources and documentary collections; Reviews and book reviews.

In the broad field of historiography, its new fields, objects and approaches, Izquierdas welcomes all relevant production in relation to its main themes and subjects, be they social, political or cultural history; international relations; gender, queer, cultural, sociological, philosophical, philological studies; studies of sources.

Scientific articles, academic communications & sources and documents studies are submitted to reviewing on formal aspects as well as on contents. In the latter case, peer reviewing is in the form of “double-blind”.
