BAEDE welcomes short works that, due to their content, do not require the extension of an article.

The maximum length will be six pages, body format in Times New Roman font, body 12, justified and double-spaced double-spaced, and two illustrations.

The selected papers will be sent to two External Reviewers and subject experts for their confidential evaluation. These evaluators will not know the identity of the author. In case of disagreement, the work will be sent to a third evaluator. The author will be informed of the final decision including the reviewer’s evaluation and possible changes.
