Nómadas has a permanent open call for the following sections:

For the section of “Creation Processes”

  • This section includes writings about the life and work of recognized scientists in the field of social sciences and of revered artists, related to any of the art scenarios. On one hand, it deals with the critical reflection about meaning, the significance and implications involved in the processes of construction of science and creation in art, and, on the other, it seeks to create an homage of the lives of those proposed for each issue.
  • The works –from the chronicle, the interview or the essay– will be elaborated by researchers or long-time scholars who are specialists in the work of the scientist or artist invited.
  • Although the presence of Latin American artists and scientists will be promoted, it is essential for one of these guests to be Colombian in each issue of the Journal.
  • Although this section is aimed at interviewing the invited guests, this does not prevent tributes to scientists or artists who have already passed away.
  • The texts must comply with a series of requirements. Consult the requirements here.

For the section of “New Nómadas”

  • The "New Nómadas" section contains the questions, reflections and findings of new Latin American researchers who, through important achievements, began their systematic journey in the world of knowledge construction. This section is thought of as a situation that not only allows these new productions to be known, but also encourages investigative vocations.
