Approaches from different disciplines, with a national, international, or global perspective, or with a comparative perspective are welcomed and encouraged.

Each accepted article will go through the traditional peer-review process of the journal. In the cover letter, the author(s) should mention that the paper will be part of the dossier “Homeopathy in Latin America and Spain: Local Developments and its International Networks”.

Article length should be less than 9,000 words. HCSM accepts submissions in Portuguese, Spanish, English, and French.
