The reviewers perform the reviews objectively, with constructive criticism that to the improvement of the manuscript,  which in a period of 31 days inform their opinion (according to the "Evaluation form”).  The suggestion could be: Accepted for publications, Publication with modifications or  rejected expressing the reasons. In the event of a dispute, the Editor will submit the manuscript to a third reviewer for review, which will allow to make a decision. Editors are not involved in decisions about papers which they have written themselves. The participation of the reviewers in all cases is anonymous and ad honorem. Depending on the observations made by the reviewers, the Editor will decide the publication of the article, its rejection or the sending of suggestions to the author.

The reviewers can notify the Editor about the existence substantial parts of the work have already been published or, if known, if they are subject to revision for another publication, in order to avoid any similarity of the manuscript with other published works.

The reviewers must: (a) Comply with agreed and requested times for revisions; (b) avoid accepting manuscripts that are not of its competence, when it considers that it will not be able to do the review in the established time or when there is a link with the authors; (c) respect the confidentiality of the manuscript and the right of authorship, avoiding commenting or discussing the content of the manuscripts with other people. Reviewers remain anonymous to the author (s) throughout the process.

Publication Frequency

The journal Selecciones Matemáticas publishes a Volume of two issues per year.

1. The first issue is published in the month of July.

2. The second number is published in the month of December.

3. All articles published in the journal will be assigned a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number.

The publication schedule is strongly followed.

Code of ethics

The Selecciones Matemáticas Journal is committed to maintaining high standards through a rigorous peer review along with strict ethical policies. Any violation of codes of professional ethics, such as plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or false claims of authorship, is taken very seriously by the editors.

The Selecciones Matemáticas Journal follows the Code of Conduct of the Publications Ethics Committee (COPE), and follows the COPE flowcharts to resolve cases of suspected misconduct. And sign the ETHIC.

Authors who wish to publish in the Mathematical Selections Magazine must meet the criteria of the international standard for authors.

Plagiarism Detection Policy

Plagiarism is a fraudulent act that consists in the use of bibliographic material prepared by third parties without directly recognizing the authorship of others, suggesting that the text presented is their own, both partially and totally.

Authors should not use the words, figures or ideas of others without attribution. All sources should be cited at the point where they are used, and reuse of the wording should be limited and should be attributed or cited in the text.

Self-plagiarism refers to the practice of an author using portions of their previous writings on the same topic in another of their publications, without specifically citing it formally in quotes.

The Selecciones Matemáticas Journal establishes an anti-plagiarism policy that allows to ensure standards of originality in the articles product of scientific research, which is reaffirmed in our Code of Ethics. In this sense, we will be screened for plagiarism using TURNITIN plagiarism detection tools, account provided  in September 2020 by  the Vice President for Research. One cannot conclusively identify plagiarism, but can only get a similarity score which is a metric that provides a score of the amount of similarity between already published content and the unpublished content under scrutiny.

How are supervisors, reviewers or editors alerted to plagiarism? 

  1. Original author comes to know and informs everyone concerned. 
  2. Sometimes a reviewer finds out about it during the review process. 
  3.  Or, readers who come across the article, while doing research. 

The Selecciones Matemáticas Journal before the plagiarism check, immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Journal History

Journal of scientific dissemination in  mathematics and its applications of the Academic Department of Mathematics of the National University of Trujillo; which was created on October 12, 2005.

But it was not until 2014, when the Jouornal began its work under the appointment of the first Editorial Board through Dean Resolution No. 048-2014/FCFYM-UNT, in order to manage the operation of the journal Selecciones Matemáticas. Subsequently, this editorial Board proceeded to call for the presentation of research articles; For this, the National University of Trujillo, through the Research Management, implemented the electronic system of the journals in the University portal, using the OJS Web manager. In that year the first volume was published with two numbers, which were published in July and December of that year.

From the year 2014, and to date, the journal Selecciones Matemáticas has been publishing Research articles, Communications, Review articles.

Since January 06, 2017, Selecciones Matemáticas  was formally indexed to the Latindex Base, after an evaluation process of compliance with most of the requirements that this base demands. Latindex aims to disseminate bibliographic information on serial scientific publications produced in Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal.

With the aim of increasing the visibility of the journal and its contents, the journal Selecciones Matemáticas was submitted to evaluation in the Directory of Open Access Journald (DOAJ), who on January 30, 2018, informed us that our journal was indexed in DOAJ.

Following this same objective, the journal underwent a new evaluation by Dialnet, who on December 16, 2019, gave us the news of the indexing of our journal.

It should be noted that Dialnet is one of the largest free and open access bibliographic portals, whose main objective is to give greater visibility to Hispanic scientific literature on the Internet. It also has an exhaustive, interdisciplinary and up-to-date database, which allows full-text content to be deposited.

Subsequently, we submitted the magazine to a new evaluation by Latindex, in order to meet all the requirements stipulated by Latindex, and on March 23, 2020, Latindex informed us that our journal had complied with everything required, and therefore became part of catalog v2.0.

Throughout this period, the editorial committee implemented a series of requirements in order to achieve indexing in prestigious institutions, which we mention:

Latindex, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ),  Redib, Dialnet, Public Knowledge Project(PKP/Index), Scientific Indexing Service (SIS), Miar, Open Academic Journals Index(OAJI.net),   CiteFactor, Sherpa Romeo, ROAD, Eurasian Scientific Journal Index(ESJI), Cosmos Impact Factor, Directory of Research Journals Indexing(DRJI), Actualidad Iberoamericana, JIFactor, Google Scholar.

In January 2021, the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (FCFYM) of the National University of Trujillo, through Dean's Resolution No. 004-2021/FCFYM-Dec, resolves to institutionalize the Revista Seleccións Matemáticas, as an organ official of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, to publish in electronic format the research carried out in its area or related sciences.

On January 27, the Vice President for Research of the National University of Trujillo, through Resolution No. 003-2021-VIN-UNT, formalizes the Dean's Resolution on the Institutionality of the Mathematical Selections Magazine.
