Popular Science

… investigates. SEISIDA tells you about it

The aim of this section is to familiarize citizens with and promote the diffusion of the results of science, technology and innovation, thereby shortening the distances between the scientific and technological world and society in general.

Topics that may be included in this section:

All the contributions in which researchers from any institution communicate their line of research to the general public and show how the result of their research can benefit society.

The popular scientific articles should consist of brief reviews of important aspects (new trends and results) and must to be based on documents (articles, protocols, trials….) published previously in the field of HIV and AIDS, in the usual channels and means available for scientific publication.

It is very important to use language that is informative and understandable for the general population.

Structure of the articles:

  • They should include title, abstract (maximum 50 words), text, tables, figures, references, photos or videos.
  • Images play a key role in scientific communication. Please select images that best illustrate their contribution. Send the artwork in digital format, as .tif, .gif, .eps, .jpeg, or .bmp files

Display mode:

The articles should be sent in Microsoft Word format or compatible. Maximum length of 5 pages including references, according to Vancouver standards. There should not be more than 10 bibliographic references.

Avoid the use of scientific-technical language; use equivalent terms in everyday language. When the use of more specialized language is inevitable or advisable, always define, precisely but simply, the meaning of the terms. Use the simplest language possible. Do not use foreign words if there is reasonable Spanish equivalent. Avoid neologisms, fillers and fashionable expressions.
