ISSN: 1130-5274


DEPÓSITO LEGAL: M.40.028-1990


Clínica y Salud is published three times a year: March, July and November.


Clínica y Salud was funded in 1990 by Colegio Oficial de la Psicología de Madrid and since then is being published on time. 


Clínica y Salud makes use of DOI, the international code allowing reliable and consistent access to content at any moment.


Clínica y Salud confirms the receipt of all articles submitted by the authors and keeps them informed by e-mail and on the platform of the admission/dismissal and acceptance/rejection process, as well as the editing process, in the event of acceptance. 

In case the manuscript presents format deficiencies or is not included in the thematic focus of the publication, the Editorial Board will dismiss the manuscript, without a re-submission option. No subsequent correspondence with authors of dismissed manuscripts will be maintained. However, if the manuscript’s deficiencies are superficial, it will be returned to the author for correction before the assessment process begins.

Manuscripts will be reviewed scientifically, anonymously, by two experts (on average) in the field. In view of these external evaluations, a decision will be made as to whether to accept or reject the articles for publication, as well as the possible introduction of stylistic changes and/or the need to trim texts that exceed the maximum length permitted, always respecting the original content.

Papers that are evaluated positively, requiring modifications (both minor and major), will be returned. All the authors will receive anonymous scientific evaluation reports so the relevant improvements or responses can be made.

The authors of accepted articles will receive the printing proofs for correction by e-mail in PDF format before final publication. The proofread, corrected versions must be returned within three days of their receipt. Only very minor corrections can be made regarding the content of the previously evaluated original manuscript.

Once the manuscript has been definitely accepted, the final version for publication must be returned with all proposed changes in English or Spanish (according to the original version). Before an issue is published, the papers will be given their own DOI in the « Articles in Press» section in the website of the journal.

 In general, once the external scientific reports have been read, the criteria that justify the editors’ decision to accept or reject submissions by Editorial Board are as follows:

  1. Current and new.
  2. Relevance and significance: advancement of scientific knowledge
  3. Originality.
  4. Reliability and scientific validity: verified methodological quality.
  5. Organisation (logical coherence and formal presentation).
  6. External support and public/private funding.
  7. Co-authorship and degree of internationalization of the proposal and equipment.
  8. Presentation: good written style.
