Scope and policy
Alea: Neo-Latin Studies was created in 1999 with the aim of providing a framework for research exchange between the Postgraduate Program in Neo-Latin Letters and similar postgraduate programs in the country, thus promoting debate among researchers – both academics and students – and also between society and academia. Additionally, in the long term the journal also sought to forge close ties between the Postgraduate Program in Neo-Latin Letters and foreign universities, with a view to keeping abreast of current developments in the language and literature areas taught and researched at our university, whilst also serving as a platform to promote the excellent research work carried out in Brazilian universities in the field of modern foreign languages and literature, in particular work related to Neo-Latin cultures. One of the journal’s key features is its receptiveness to comparative studies around a central theme, which has made it possible to contrast what the languages and literatures studied in the Postgraduate Program in Neo-Latin Letters owe to, or offer, others; or how they rewrite universal issues or how their own issues are being received or rewritten by other cultures. To boost the journal’s circulation within Brazil and abroad we sought support from various academics and researchers from prestigious universities, all of whom happily agreed to collaborate with our editorial endeavour. Similarly, the journal gradually started to benefit from increased participation of researchers from foreign institutions, who collaborated either as authors or guest editors for special thematic issues. Also on board came many other researchers from across Brazil whose work is renowned in their specialist areas. From the second issue onwards, the journal has been including a dissertation and thesis review section, which has proved an extremely valuable tool to promote MA and PhD level research, and make it accessible to other researchers. Furthermore, we also continue publishing translations and critical reviews in order to promote recent publications in the field.
Created by the Postgraduate Program in Neo-Latin Letters (with support from Programa de Apoyo al Postgrado de la Capes), since 2001 the journal also receives support from Programa de Apoyo a las Publicaciones Científicas of the CNPq.

Sending of manuscripts
Submission of texts entails the immediate transfer of copyright to the journal at no expenses to it. The author continues, however, to hold the copyright for further publications, and should whenever possible refer to the first printing, at Alea. The author is fully responsible for the content submitted. The journal is not obliged to return submitted texts. Authors receive two copies of Alea, reviewers, one.
All papers sent to Alea are analyzed first by its editors, who decide if the work is fit to be peer-reviewed. The reviewers are well-established scholars in their field and will be chosen accordingly by the editors, by means of consultation on the CNPq database and based on the expertise of the Editorial Board. At first, the papers are sent to two reviewers. In the case of conflicting reviews, a third reviewer will be solicited. The editors reserve the right to decide finally, in all given circumstances.
Conflict of interests
If the author is related to any public or private institution and if from this relationship any conflict of interests may arise, this possibility must be communicated to the editors, so that it may be indicated on the published article.
