ANDncartes is a multimedia digital journal in social sciences of the Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropología Social (CIESAS), El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (El Colef) and Instituto Tecnológico, de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO) and El Colegio de San Luis (COLSAN) whose purpose is to publish articles and reviews that are the product of research and contribute original results to this field. It will be published every six months, publishing a non issue in spring and a couple of issues in autumn. It is expected to disseminate research results in different audiovisual and multimedia formats; to encourage the publication of multi-code scientific essays, and to build a virtual space that generates interdisciplinary debate forums. Its design, although novel, responds to the indexing indexes 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.
