AMBIENTE & SOCIEDADE PAPER EVALUATION PROCESS
Paper evaluation process is as follows:
(1) Initial Screening: Assistant editors screen the paper for compliance with publishing rules listed online. Within this phase editors only suggest modifications to the authors according to the editorial criteria. The sooner the author suits its paper to the changes solicited, the quicker the evaluation process will be. It’s important that the authors are aware of the Journal formatting requirements. The author will be notified to make adjustments up to three times, and if the manuscript still doesn't meet the formatting requirements, the work will be rejected. At this stage, manuscripts that don't meet the scope of the journal will be rejected.
(2) Pre-analysis: The manuscript will be evaluated by the executive editors. Within this stage, some requirements are analyzed, such as relatedness to the scope of the journal, originality, method consistency, and interdisciplinary discussion. Failure to meet the requirements may result in rejection of the manuscript. Evaluation proceeds without author identification.
(3) Designation: Should the papers be approved at the pre-analysis stage, they will be designated to the associate editors. These are responsible for following up the evaluation and indicate peer referees who will proceed with the paper revision.
(4) Evaluation: In this final stage, the paper is evaluated by a pair of referees using double-blind methodology. In some cases, it undergoes the evaluation of further referees if the decision is tied. It is quite common for the evaluators to suggest a series of adjustments. The sooner the author delivers the adjustments, the faster the analysis process.
Important: Once a manuscript has been submitted to the Journal, it will go through all the steps previously described, receiving comments or requesting corrections by the editors. Compliance with these observations will require the authors to submit new revised versions of the manuscripts in the ScholarOne System that use Eastern Time, rather than Brazilian time. Therefore, authors must submit revisions and corrections by the day before the deadline set by the ScholarOne system and communicated by email to the authors.
Articles approved in step 4, and accepted for publication until August of the current year, will be published in the current volume.
Papers must be submitted on the online platform: https://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/asoc-scielo
Focus and scope
Ambiente & Sociedade is a annual publication of the National Association of Graduate Courses and Research in Environment and Society - ANPPAS, that contributes with the area of knowledge that articulates the interface between Environment and Society, within an interdisciplinary approach, highlighting the dialogue between the natural and human sciences and their connections.
The Journal publishes scientific work of national and international contributors, which are subject to evaluations by ad hoc reviewers.
The journal publishes articles and reviews of unprecedented books in the interdisciplinary area of interaction between Environment and Society, and presents original and significant contributions from a theoretical, conceptual, methodological and/or empirical point of view.
Articles of a strictly disciplinary nature, focusing on environmental or human transformations separately, or that do not have a discussion about the relationship between environment and society should be sent to other journals and will not be considered for publication, regardless of their quality.
