Abstract

Welcome to the first issue of our twenty-fourth volume. It comes out within an environment of tensions and anxiety due to the indexing policies announced by Colciencias-Publindex and which have been questioned by Colombian scholars due to the implementation of evaluation criteria that are very much disadvantageous for publications in the area of human and social sciences. Those policies were issued in 2016 despite the critique and suggestions raised by editorial committees and academic communities of different Colombian universities and associations.
