in scholarly journals. I have read a lot about this topic and
insistently some of you guys talk about the need for an author to 
publish in "an International journal". But what is an international
journal? What features should have a journal to be international? It
really exist an international Journal?

book, or an international dissertation, or an international grey
literature. This way of thinking only show up with journals.
