 * The information provided in this article is the result of the Project Fondecyt number 1034321 titled: Digital retouching and photographic staging. Researcher: Nelson Montes H. Co-researchers: Juan Ruiz and Horacio Encina.

 

If the author has previously published an article about the same research, he should refer to that publication. Using the same resource described above, he must indicate all the data of the publication (title, journal, volume, number, publication date and pages).

 

2. ABSTRACT

 

All manuscripts must have a summary of 140 words containing a summary of the contents of the article. The abstract should state the purpose of the work, the methodology used, the results obtained and the conclusions presented in the document. The abstract should not include arguments that are not present in the body of the article.

 

All authors must remember that the abstract is not an introduction, but a synthesis of what is stated in the article.

 

 

3. TEXT

 

ORGANIZATION OF THE TEXT

 

The length of the manuscripts will be 3,500 to 4,000 words. Due to the cost of translations, this extension cannot be surpassed.

 

All formal aspects of the manuscript must adhere to the rules of the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA).

 

CITATION IN THE TEXT

 

Quotations must follow stipulations made by the American Psychological Association (APA). For both, literal quotations and paraphrases, authors must indicate the page number of the quoted fragment.

 

Example:

A recent study of rental prices in central neighborhoods concludes that "prices behave cyclically, without a stable pattern in the duration of ups and downs" (Bernardi & Moccione, 2010, p. 223).

 

When successively incorporating several ideas or arguments of another author, the source should be cited as many times as necessary to make the origin of the information clear.

When an author cites secondary sources, ie sources that did not consult directly but appear in another source consulted, he should follow the scheme proposed by the American Psychological Association (APA).

 

Example:

Ariès points out that the dead body became a source of macabre eroticism, becoming an object of desire, as can be seen in the popular literature of the time, which includes "scenes of sensuality and desire, starring the living who made love with the dead (as quoted in Jiménez Aboitiz, 2012, p.181).

 

When an author who writes in English literally quotes a piece of work published in Spanish, the original citation should be included in a footnote for the translator to use that extract.

 

USE OF NOTES

 

Authors may make footnotes to comment the text. Footnotes should not be used to annotate bibliographic references.

 

Footnotes should be indicated with Arabic numerals, in brackets, in superscript position, as shown in the following example:

 

 ... the faculty was forced to rethink the themes and the methodological and cognitive instruments when it happened to become a numerous entity (1). The teachers…

_________

  (1) In 1970, design schools registered 3,500 enrollees, a figure which remained stable until the end of the 1990s. From that moment on, the student population will grow steadily to reach 12,000 enrollees in the period 2005-2010.

 

4. REFERENCES LIST

 

The author should include the full references list at the end of the article. Entries must be sorted alphabetically, according to the author's last name. Source information should follow the guidelines proposed by the American Psychological Association (APA).

 

Examples:

Sánchez, J.C. (2014). Research and Design. Santiago, Chile: Ed. Universitaria.

 

Sánchez, J.C. (2016). Research methods applied to the creation of design projects. In J. Trujillo (Ed.), Applied Research (pp. 32-78). Madrid, Spain: Chair.

5. IMAGES

 

Authors will be able to illustrate their arguments with images (photographs, drawings, planimetry, maps, schemes, etc.). All images must be numbered.

 

CAPTIONS

 

The legend should describe the image and explain very briefly what arguments included in the article illustrates the image.

If the image refers to a design project or work, the author should add, along with the above, the name of the author, the name of the project, the date of creation and the credits of the image.
