Author Guidelines

Author Guidelines

THERYA is an official electronic journal of the Asociación Mexicana de Mastozoología, Asociación Civil (AMMAC). The aims and scope of THERYA are to be an international journal devoted to the publication of articles on all aspects of mammals (Biology, Ecology, Genetics, Ethology, Conservation, etc.). Research contributions are accepted (articles, reviews, and notes), as well as editorials in which the central scope are mammals.

Online Manuscript Submission-

All manuscripts should be submitted to THERYA through the website To this end, please sign up as a user on the website by choosing the Authors tab. Then log in and go to the Authors tab in the personal area. Click on “Start a new submission” and follow the five steps indicated by the system. It is important to note that in step three "enter the metadata", the requested data for all the authors of the manuscript should be provided. The metadata entered in the THERYA webpage must match those in the article; any discrepancy may result in the rejection of the manuscript, which will be the responsibility of the authors.

The submitted manuscript should not have been published previously nor submitted for publication in any other journal (if this is not the case, provide a justification under Comments to the editor). Prior to loading/sending a manuscript to the website, the editorial standards of the journal should be reviewed thoroughly and followed in their entirety.

To keep the review time as short as possible (although we have no postal delays!), manuscripts should be submitted to THERYA web page “”, or through the web page of the journal “” using the option “envió de artículos”. In case you encounter any difficulties while submitting your manuscript on line, please get in touch with the responsible Editor-in-Chief (

Cover Letter: Authors should clearly indicate in a letter the type of manuscript being submitted (e.g., article, editorial comment, review, or research note).

Evaluation Process: The process consists of three main phases, Pre-check / prescreening, Pre-revision/ Screening and Revision /Review. The prescreening phase is the review of compliance with editorial standards, general style of the THERYA journal, and verification that the information requested in the THERYA website is complete. In case the manuscript does not match the journal format, the corresponding author will receive an e-mail with editorial comments about the manuscript, which should be corrected accordingly.

The manuscript screening phase is a preliminary academic assessment carried out by the Editor-in-Chief of THERYA. It is a first content review that will assess the manuscript quality and whether the scope of the research work is consistent with the profile of THERYA. If the manuscript is eligible after the screening phase, it will be assigned an internal code that comprises a consecutive numbering and two thematic key words; also, an Associate Editor will be designated (a specialist in the area of the research subject) that will follow up on the review process.

The review of the manuscript will be conducted by an associate editor with expertise on the subject. The review will be conducted through a double-blind evaluation process, which consists of removing the names, addresses and e-mails of the authors, as well as the acknowledgments and any letterhead. Through this process, THERYA ensures that the identity of authors and reviewers remains anonymous, thus strengthening the quality of manuscripts. The associate editor will send the manuscript to at least three reviewers that are highly renowned on the subject at national and international levels. When the associate editor receives two reviews with a consistent opinion, they shall send a notice to the authors through mail, or will await the resolution of the third reviewer. The author shall incorporate the recommendations into the manuscript, or is given the right of reply if they disagrees with any of them. The corrected manuscript shall be returned to the associate editor, who has the right to submit it to additional review, depending on the extent of the recommendations made. The associate editor may return the manuscript to the authors as many times as considered necessary until all its deficiencies are resolved and the manuscript is regarded as suitable for publication. During this process, the corresponding author may receive reminders to forward the corrected manuscript, with the aim of speeding up the revision process of the submitted manuscript.

When the associate editor considers that the manuscript is ready for publication, is will be forwarded with the respective recommendation to the Editor in Chief, who will make the final decision and will proceed with the final revision, editing, formatting and printing.

All articles that are by invitation or as special contributions to an issue to be published in THERYA will be subject to the blind peer review process, as is done for any other article.

Language: THERYA accepts manuscript submissions and will print in English and Spanish. We appreciate any efforts made to ensure that the language is revised and corrected before submission as it will greatly improve the legibility of your paper if English or Spanish is not your first language. It is recommended to consult with someone who is fluent in the respective language. In case of English, British or American English spelling and terminology may be used, but either one should be followed consistently throughout the article.

Types of manuscripts that may be submitted to THERYA

Three types of original scientific writings can be submitted for publication in THERYA: in-depth articles, reviews, and letters to the editor.

Any submission to the THERYA website should specify the type of contribution. Articles, reviews and notes should include the following sections: Abstract/Resumen, Introduction/Introducción, Methods/Métodos, Results/Resultados, Discussion and Conclusions/Discusión y Conclusiones, Acknowledgments/Agradecimientos, and References/Literatura Citada.

Articles and reviews will consist of extensive and in-depth scientific writings of more than 5 pages including extensive literature references to support the manuscript.

Letters to the editor will be straightforward brief communications addressing an issue of interest to the mammalogy community. These may be expressed from the author’s point of view, but shall make reference to precise and specific concepts, facts, figures, etc., to support a case. If necessary, literature references may be included in the text, with the respective References section. This type of publication shall avoid using a negative language, and shall focus exclusively on the analysis of subjects of interest to the community.

Manuscript Presentation: Manuscripts should be submitted as Microsoft Word documents (preferably as a .docx file). Please make sure that the file is submitted in the format corresponding to the respective language (Spanish or English); avoid using characters in another language format. The size of the file submitted through the THERYA website is constrained to be less than 1.8 MB. Accordingly, it is recommended to avoid including heavy figures in the manuscript; nonetheless, these shall be clearly visible and legible for review. Note that once a manuscript is accepted, images of a higher resolution may be requested, as needed.

Literature cited that are not easily accessed or available for review:

Some old journals are no longer published or have changed their name; the articles published in some of them contain relevant historical information. Another case refers to unpublished internal reports that include relevant data. In these cases, please indicate where or with whom these materials can be reviewed, using the following format:


Supplementary material should be collected in an Appendix, placed after the References section. Appendices shall be numbered using Arabic numerals.

Supplementary material

The supplementary material will consist of data supporting the analyses performed, with an extension that is unsuitable for inclusion within the journal format.


All photographs, charts, and diagrams should be referred to as a 'Figure' (please do not abbreviate) and should be numbered consecutively (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.). In figures including multiple parts, each should be labeled with lower case letters (Figure 1a, b, etc.). Please insert scale bars directly in the graphs when necessary, and avoid including the keys inside the graph; it is better to place them as figure legends. The text within graphs should be written using the same font type as in the rest of the manuscript (Times New Roman). Relatively small text and great variation in text sizes within figures should be avoided, as figures are often reduced in size. Provide a detailed legend (without abbreviations) to each figure. All figures should be cited in the text consecutively. Please place the legends of charts/graphs in the manuscript in a saperate page, with the title “List of figures”, after the References.

Note that the final size of figures shall be adjusted to the printing box of the journal. Authors are responsible for checking the lines and font in the figures considering the final size in the publication. Charts or graphs could be of either of two sizes (a) full box, obligatory size of 18 cm wide and up to 24 cm long, and (b) half box, obligatory size of 6.6 cm wide and up to 24 cm long.

Once the article is accepted for publication, each chart and graph should be sent in a separate file and shall be drafted using programs allowing easy format edition, such as CorelDraw and Excel. This aspect shall be considered in the drafting of the original manuscript.

In figures, please follow the guidelines below:

- Maps should only include decimal degrees or degrees, minutes, and seconds. UTM are not accepted. The degrees, minutes and seconds shall be separated from one another by one blank space. West (W) latitudes and South (S) longitudes shall be indicated with the sign “-“.

- All legends shall be included as footnotes and not within figures.

- Graphs sharing the “x” or “y” axis shall be drawn vertically in the first case or horizontally in the second, so that all graphs share the same “x” or “y” axis.

- In multiple graphs, please ensure that any colors or patterning are consistent across panels or figures, such that the same color or hatch pattern always refers to the same species or parameter (e.g., habitat metrics).

- In general, graphs and figures are published in column width; therefore, consider the respective measurements for font size and line width. As a minimum, these shall correspond to those published in two columns

Format of figures

During the evaluation process, figures shall be included at the end of the Word document submitted for evaluation. Once the general editor sends the final review of the manuscript, figures shall be sent in high-resolution files using TIFF or JPG formats including the latest modifications requested.

Color illustrations

THERYA offers options for reproducing color illustrations in your article.


Each table should be numbered consecutively (Table 1, Table 2, etc.). All tables should be designed using the table format; tables designed using tabulations are not accepted. Vertical lines within the table should be avoided and horizontal lines should only be used as necessary. In tables, footnotes are preferable to long explanatory material in either the heading or body of the table. Such explanatory footnotes, identified by superscript letters, should be placed immediately below the table. Avoid including more than 6 tables in the text. If the Results section is relatively short, avoid the excessive use of tables; in this case, choose to describe as text the content of result tables. Additionally, tables that include data supporting graphs can be included as supplementary materials.

Please provide a caption (without abbreviations) to each table. Finally, please place the tables after the List of figures in the manuscript.

Supplementary material

The text of the manuscript should only include the main information related to figures and tables. The rest of the material shall be included in an additional file and submitted as a supplementary material. For the evaluation process, the supplementary material shall be included at the end of the manuscript, but in the final publication, it shall be submitted in a separate file.

Appendices are considered supplementary materials.


Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author. One corrected proof, together with the original manuscript, should be returned to the Editor in Chief by e-mail within three days.

Please take into account that the proof stage is the last revision phase where only minor changes are accepted. IN CASE OF MAJOR MODIFICATIONS, THE MANUSCRIPT SHALL BE TAKEN BACK TO THE EVALUATION PROCESS. The author is responsible for ensuring that the file to be sent for publication contains no major modifications. In case it is detected that the final file contains non-compliances with the requested format, it will be returned to the authors and will not be sent to the production list until the article is delivered in the correct format as requested by THERYA. The authors are also responsible for reviewing in detail the proofs and communicate to both the Editor in Chief and the Assistant Editor the accurate and detailed request of proof correction. ONCE THE ARTICLE HAS BEEN FORMALLY PUBLISHED, IT IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES TO IT.


THERYA, as an electronic journal, will not have offprints.


THERYA provides immediate free access to its contents at no charge. In THERYA, we work under the principle that making knowledge available with no restrictions stimulates global dialogue. Accordingly, we also receive articles for evaluations with no submission or processing charges. THERYA has no printing expenses per page or for color figures.


Authors will be asked, upon acceptance of an article, to transfer copyright of the article to the Publisher (AMMAC). This will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information under copyright laws.

The author is responsible for informing his/her co-authors on the submission of the manuscript and the written copyright relating the use of materials, data, sequences, or specimens not directly belonging to the corresponding author.


It is the responsibility of the author to obtain written permission from other author(s) to cite any unpublished materials (even those included in theses and internal reports).


THERYA maintains the highest standards of publication ethics and to supporting ethical research practices. Authors should observe high standards with respect to publication ethics ( as set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Allegations of misconduct will be investigated in accordance with the COPE Best Practice Guidelines ( THERYA takes publication ethics very seriously.

Therya does not consider for publication articles that have been published in substantial part or in full in a scientific journal, book, or similar entity or that are being considered for publication elsewhere. At the time of submission, describe in the cover letter data, figures, or text in the manuscript that have been published or that are in press, submitted, or soon to be submitted elsewhere. If any of the data in the manuscript have been included in other published, the legend of each table or figure containing such data must cite those manuscripts.

In submitting a manuscript for publication in THERYA, the authors attest that their research was done ethically and in compliance with relevant local, national, or international regulations regarding the collection, care, and use of animals. Authors must affirm that their research practices followed ASM guidelines by Sikes et al. 2016 ( for the use of wild mammals in research.

Manuscript without ethical use of specimens or practices or errors will be sent to the Editorial Board which will be evaluated and may be retracted from THERYA. Notifications of the retracted manuscript will be publishing in THERYA.

All specimens of all species must be treated and handled with respect and following the rights of animals. Each one of the authors and the work team involved in the research are expected to follow good practices and standards in the handling of specimens (Sikes et al. 2016) and follow the local and national legislation that applies in the study area. The information generated about this management should be with the purpose of producing knowledge for a better understanding of the species for their conservation, so the biodiversity of the place should not be affected in any way. Manuscript without ethical use of specimens or practices or errors will be sent to the Editorial Board which will be evaluated and may be retracted from THERYA. Notifications of the retracted manuscript will be publishing in Therya.

Post-acceptance Changes

If after acceptance a manuscript is changed substantially for any reason, it is the responsibility of the corresponding author to inform coauthors of these changes. After an article has been placed in an issue, corrections are allowed only through an “Corrigendum” to be published in a forthcoming issue. Errata are allowed only for errors that change the outcomes or conclusions. Therya do not allows the change of the authors names.


THERYA employs a plagiarism-detection system ( By submitting your manuscript, you accept that it may be screened for similarity against previously published works. If 15% or more of the manuscript is similar to other articles without correct citation the manuscript will be rejected.
