ANDncartes is a multimedia digital journal on social sciences of the Center for Research and Higher Studies in Social Anthropology (CIESAS), of El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (El Colef) and of the Technological Institute and of Higher Studies of the West (ITESO) whose purpose is the publication of articles and reviews that are the product of research and provide original results to this field. Its publication will be biannual, publishing a non-issue in spring and a couple in autumn. It is planned to disseminate the research results in different audiovisual and multimedia records; encourage the publication of multi-code scientific essays, and build a virtual space that generates interdisciplinary discussion forums. Its design, although novel, responds to the indexing indices of conacyt and international. The publication of this material is subject to rigorous, scientific and impartial arbitration. Likewise, the journal has a forum for dialogue and scientific discussion with other disciplines and knowledge that seek the wide dissemination of scientific knowledge.
New electronic platforms can be used to publish incorporating innovative languages, genres and forms of interaction. Encartes integrates various ethnographic records to which anthropologists resort in their research processes, including audiovisual material (audio recordings, videos or photographs) that, when inserted, complement the material of the magazine.
We propose to make Encartes an alternative to the existing Spanish-language social science journals linking the word and the image in a novel effort to broaden the fields of academic dialogues and debates, which we consider to be sources of stimulus for the production of knowledge. We contemplate making use of contemporary technological offers to establish a bridge between academic generations of literacy and image production and reading. When inserting, we include, because dialogue has to bring together all voices if it is to fulfill its purposes of opening and expanding the horizons of creation. With these purposes of including and accompanying the magazine begins its journey.
