How to publish in this journal


The "Universidad y Sociedad" (RUS) Journal in its electronic version, was born on the eve of the XXX Anniversary of the University of Cienfuegos "Carlos Rafael Rodríguez" (2008), with the aim of promoting the exchange in areas of social, humanistic, economic, technical and others sciences with an interdisciplinary character and it is integrated nationally and internationally. To do this, it integrates a community of experts, teachers, researchers and professionals with interests in those profiles. It also develops collaborative spaces in the field of knowledge management and innovation for the development of society through the publication and dissemination of scientific results and the generalization of experiences in academic and research institutions. Since its beginning, it has changed its appearance and technology twice in order to maintain an image and access consistent with the open source that Web 2.0 allows; with an evolution both technical and aesthetic. The Journal dedicates eighty percent (80%), or more of the volume of each edition to the publication of original articles; and the rest to issues related to the dissemination of science and innovation.
