Apuntes del Cenes now indexed in Scopus


For the editorial team it is a source of pride to share the positive result of the Scopus selection committee, who have accepted the journal to be included in the bibliographic database after a second application and having met all the requirements and criteria quality.


Apuntes del Cenes, which since its foundation in 1981 by the professors of the UPTC School of Economics, thanks to the different editors and editorial teams, has established itself as one of the best journals dedicated to disseminating theoretical and empirical research on related topics with all fields of the economy at the national level.


The journal has been publishing various articles that address local cases as well as international investigations and the validation by the Scopus selection committee has confirmed this characteristic. For this reason, we hope to continue fullfilling the quality criteria of this database as well as the journal's mission, as it is, to continue contributing to economic and academic development, as well as to the progress of the sociopolitical environment of the Ibero-American countries and the rest of the world, based on the quality of published research.


At the moment we have only received the acceptance letter and we hope to be visible on the Scopus and SJR platforms soon.
