The journal Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciências from 2012 onwards only considers online submissions. Once you have prepared your manuscript according to the instructions below, please visit the new, improved online submission website at https://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/aabc-scielo. Please read these instructions carefully and follow them strictly. In this way you will help ensure that the review and publication of your paper are as efficient and quick as possible. The editors reserve the right to return manuscripts that are not in accordance with these instructions. Papers must be clearly and concisely written in English.
Aim and editorial policy
All submitted manuscripts should contain original research not previously published and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The primary criterion for acceptance is scientific quality. Papers should avoid excessive use of abbreviations or jargon, and should be intelligible to as wide an audience as possible. Particular attention should be paid to the Abstract, Introduction, and Discussion sections, which should clearly draw attention to the novelty and significance of the data reported. Failure to do this may result in delays in publication or rejection of the paper.
Texts can be published as a review, a full paper (article) or as a short communication. Issues appear in March, June, September and December.
Types of Papers
Preparation of manuscripts
All parts of the manuscript should be double-spaced throughout. After acceptance, no changes will be made in the manuscript so that proofs require only corrections of typographical errors. The authors should send their manuscript in electronic version only.
Length of manuscript
Tables and Illustrations
The references should be cited in the text as, for example, ‘Smith 2004’, ‘Smith and Wesson 2005’ or, for three or more authors, ‘Smith et al. 2006’. Two or more papers by the same author(s) in the same year should be distinguished by letters, e.g. ‘Smith 2004a’, ‘Smith 2004b’ etc. Letters should also distinguish papers by three or more authors with identical first author and year of publication. References should be listed according to the alphabetical order of the first author, always in the order SURNAME XY in which X and Y are initials. If there are more than ten authors, use et al. after the first author. References must contain the title of the article. Names of the journals should be abbreviated. For the correct abbreviations, refer to lists of the major databases in which the journal is indexed or consult the World List of Scientific Periodicals. The abbreviation to be used for the Anais da Academia Brasileira de Ciências is An Acad Bras Cienc. The following examples are to be considered as guidelines for the References.
