In case of using own or somebody else’s previously published material, it should be cited and referenced according to this journal’s guidelines.

The Boletín has a strict antiplagiarism policy. The manuscripts received are screened using specialized software, which identifies the levels of similarity to other published texts.

The Boletín also supports the Committee on Publication Ethics, COPE (www.publicationethics.org), and applies its protocols to study and make decisions regarding situations denounced or detected by the Editorial Team.

The authors are responsible for the legal right to publish the material submitted, specifically regarding figures, audios, videos, and any other data protected by the legislation in force in the corresponding country.
