I am a Full Professor at the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México and visiting researcher at Universidad Nacional Autónoma. In addition, I'm senior consultant at Scientificomm. My specialties areas include social theory, editorial scientific processes, open access and scientific communication. I have collaborated in the development of current methods of evaluation of academic publications, such as the current law for open access in México, approved by the Mexican federal government in May of 2014. I'm currently member of the Editorial Board of the Colegio de la Frontera Norte and Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco. Since its foundation I coordinate the Red Iberoamericana de Editores de Revistas de Estudios Territoriales RIER.
