Scope Alpha, is a journal that is published every semester, founded in 1985 by professors of the Department of Humanities and Arts of the Universidad de Los Lagos (Osorno, Chile). Throughout this time, it has concentrated in its pages the interests in art, letters and philosophy with the common objective of building an academic space for the distribution of research about literary studies and the humanities, in general. Alpha is, therefore, an evident interdisciplinary proposal regarding the sciences, that is molded on the status of equality offered to specialists in these matters, from a transdiscursive perspective.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year.
