Polis. Revista Latinoamericana aims to contribute to the development of an “open” university, where knowledge production is not the monopoly of an academic institution but is the collective task of the whole of society. Polis sets out to be a website for alternative reflection and research for new paradigms, and fresh proposals for analysis and in inter- and pluri-disciplinary knowledge. Polis is published three times yearly by the Université bolivarienne du Chili. It is referenced at national and international levels. For the opening of the journal’s website, four issues in full text and on open access will be available online. Contributions are mainly in Spanish.
