REVISTA DE ECONOMIA CRITICA (REC) aims to facilitate and encourage the academic debate on Political Economy, and is therefore interested on publishing academic articles from critical, radical and/or heterodox perspectives. It includes, without limitation, manuscripts from political economists and other critical social scientists on marxist, post-keynesian, institutional, ecological or feminist economics, radical political economy, political ecology, critical development studies, international political economy and so on. Multidisciplinary and international approaches on those topics are specifically welcome.


Editor-in-chief and Associate Editors (thereafter, The Editors) are responsible for assuring the high-quality of articles published, authors’ freedom of expression and academic integrity.

The Editors are responsible for determining, after a peer-review process, whether the text fits the journal’s aims and scope and its general framework.

The Editors are committed to ensure that the potential for advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.

The Editors are responsible for revision of academic publishing rules and double-blind peer-review standards. The Editors are responsible for making sure the peer-review process is properly accomplished.


Authors are responsible for all submitted content to REC.

Author(s) should ensure that their manuscript submitted to REC is not under consideration (or accepted for publication) elsewhere. Where sections of the manuscript overlap with published or submitted content, this should be noted to the Editors, acknowledged and cited.

Every author listed on a manuscript submitted to REC should have made a significant contribution to the article.

Authors are expected to avoid any sort of plagiarism (“When somebody presents the work of others (data, words or theories) as if they were his/her own and without proper acknowledgment.”, Committee of Publications Ethics (COPE)) or self-plagiarism (the redundant reuse of your own work, usually without proper citation).

Data fabrication/falsification is an unacceptable academic malpractice: all data included in the manuscript must be accurate and representative of author’s research. Author(s) may be asked to provide supplementary or supporting raw data where required.

Authors are expected to declare any conflict of interest to the Editors upon submission, or during the peer-review process.

Author(s) should inform the Editors if there is a significant error in their published article, and work with the Editor-in-chief to publish an erratum or retraction where necessary.


The Editors shall ensure that the peer review process is fair, unbiased, and timely.

Once a received manuscript has been previously assessed for suitability by the Editors, it will then be reviewed by at least two external and independent reviewers, following a double-blind peer review process.

The Reviewers are expected to give unbiased consideration to each manuscript submitted for consideration for publication. Therefore it must be evaluated based on its merits, without regard to race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author(s).

The Reviewers should provide a constructive, evidenced, comprehensive, and substantial peer-review report.

The Reviewers are expected to call Editors’ attention to any significant similarity between the manuscript they are reviewing and any other article they are aware of.


The Editors shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred.

No plagiarism and no fraudulent data will be accepted, and any infringements of academic publishing ethical codes (such as those listed at COPE) will lead to the retraction of an article.

The Editors will always be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.


REVISTA DE ECONOMIA CRITICA (REC) is an open access journal. Henceforth REC provides full text, unrestricted access to all its contents immediately upon publication.

Author(s) are allowed to archive a copy of their own published articles on their personal web site or institutional repositories after publication, acknowledging journal source (Revista de Economía Critica) and for non-commercial use only.

REC guarantees the self-archiving of its published articles in databases, repositories, international directories and information systems.
