GUIDE FOR AUTHORS
 

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Journal is published in English. The primary goal of Latin American Applied Research is to act as a forum for communications across all branches of Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry, Heat & Mass Transfer, Applied Mechanics and Control & Information Processing, and especially to facilitate interaction between theory and experimental set-up. Submission of a manuscript means it has not been copyrighted, submitted, accepted or published elsewhere. Articles and any other material published in Latin American Applied Research represent the opinion of the authors and should not be construed to reflect the opinion of the Editors and the Editorial Press. All manuscripts will be assessed by at least two independent referees. The names of reviewers are kept confidential and the manuscript will not be returned to the authors.

Manuscripts will only be accepted for evaluation when, according to the criterion of the Editor-in-Chief, its topic is strictly within the scope of LAAR. Authors can cite articles previously published in LAAR as a way to adapt the manuscript to the scope of the journal. Once a paper is accepted for publication, the author is assumed to have transferred its copyright to the Publisher. The Publisher will not, however, put any limitation on the personal freedom of the author to use material from the paper in other publications.

TYPES OF PUBLICATIONS

a) REVIEWS: Critiques of important areas of the subjects of interest, written to inform the general readers of the background, state of the art, and outstanding research problems.

b) RESEARCH PAPERS: Full-length papers describing important new experimental or theoretical results. Multiple part papers are discouraged. A small fraction of educational articles will be considered if they contribute to the enhancement of the main topics of the journal at the university level.

c) NOTES: These should contain comments or remarks submitted by readers or authors in connection with previously published material.
