How to publish in this journal


The Newsletter seeks the active participation of national and foreign jurists, from a multi-institutional and international perspective, so that they can collaborate as arbitrators or send their papers to be published. Proof of this opening is that in both the Editorial Board and the Editorial Committee of the Newsletter, people from the most diverse institutions and nationalities participate. The official language of the Newsletter is Spanish; however, it receives and publishes written works in four other languages: English, French, Italian and Portuguese. It has four sections: articles, legislative studies, bibliography and information. Through the works published in these sections, this journal seeks to disseminate legal research focused primarily on the solution of national problems; provide scientific information on the different legal disciplines; provide support to teaching activities and research at UNAM and other institutions in the country or abroad.

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.


The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'.
