Dear subscribers,
As a result of the spreading crisis in connection with the SARS-CoV2 / COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, many universities, libraries and other institutions around the world have had to close for an indeterminate period. In addition, postal services in some regions are no longer able to function on a regular basis. For that reason we have decided to temporarily suspend overseas delivery of mexicon.
This affects the following countries: Australia, Belize, Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and the United States of America.
For the most recent issue of mexicon (vol. XIV, no. 1; February 2020) please use this link, where you can download the complete issue in PDF format:
Nevertheless, if you prefer immediate delivery by post, please contact us and give us your street address:
It goes without saying that we will immediately resume overseas postal delivery once the global situation has stabilized.
Thank you in advance for your understanding. Please stay healthy!
Your mexicon editorial team
Estimados suscriptores:
 A consecuencia de la situación de la crisis actual por la pandemia (Coronavirus; Covid19; SARS-CoV2) se han estado cerrando universidades, bibliotecas y otras instituciones en todo el mundo. Tampoco el servicio postal está funcionando adecuadamente ahora, por lo cual hemos convenido cancelar temporalmente el envío de ejemplares de la revista mexicon afuera de Europa y concretamente hacia Australia, México, Belice, Guatemala, Honduras, Nueva Zelandia, Canadá, Japón y los Estados Unidos de América.
A fin de que pueda consultar el tomo completo de la nueva edición de mexicon (vol. XLII, no. 1, febrero de 2020), le remitimos al archivo de pdf en el siguiente enlace:
En el caso de preferir en todas formas la version en papel, le rogamos nos contacte. Favor de indicar la dirección postal a la que desee se envíe en su mensaje.
Naturalmente reanudaremos el envío trasatlántico una vez se normalice la situación.

Ahora le agradecemos su comprensión y le deseamos manténgase en buen estado de salud!
El equipo editorial mexicon
