The Revista Aequitas. Estudios sobre Historia, Derecho e Instituciones has been created by the Asociación Veritas para el Estudio de la Historia, el Derecho y las Instituciones (Veritas Association for the Study of History, Law and Institutions).
The field of study of the journal aims to cover as broad as its name suggests: history, law and institutions and, in particular, the interrelationships between these three fields of study.
In terms of geographical frame, studies about Spanish or Hispanic History, Law and Institutions will be preferred, but not in an exclusive manner. Topics related to other nations will be published in the Revista Aequitas if the studies are presented in Spanish or any other language commonly used to spread knowledge, science and culture, in order to ensure that the text can be accessed by a reasonable number of readers.
The journal is published on an annual basis.
