Code of Ethics. Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica adheres to the “Guide to good practices for journal editors” and other ethical guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), as well as the provisions of Habeas Data-Statutory Law 1266 of 2008, for the management of personal information in databases.

Peer Review. In the process of publishing the journal Cuadernos de Lingüística Hispánica, once the original article (manuscript) has been received, the Editorial Committee will define whether it meets both the technical standards established by the journal and the relevance, scientific and writing quality. Likewise, this will be reviewed by a plagiarism detector software, to determine its originality. If the document complies with these standards, it will be subject to review and evaluation by reviewers specialized in the particular thematic area, under the "double-blind" system, that is, throughout the evaluation process the identities of both the authors and the reviewers are concealed. Once their evaluation has been completed, the reviewers will send their opinion through the journal's portal. The evaluated article may have one of these three results: publishable, publishable with adjustments, or not publishable. When this is considered publishable with adjustments, the author is informed, who decides whether to commit to making them, and will communicate her/his decision in writing to the Editorial Committee

Simultaneous submission. The authors should not simultaneously submit the same manuscript to another journal, since this potentially compromises the originality and rights of a manuscript. The submission of the manuscript must be done strictly, following the rules for authors.

Use and Dissemination of Articles. It is essential that the authors, if they are researchers and university professors, actively participate in the dissemination of their articles among their students and colleagues in the area. The authors can get involved in dissemination strategies so that part of the scientific knowledge in their articles is communicated more pleasantly and its understanding and assimilation by a broader public is facilitated.
