BAR - Brazilian Administration Review

The journal publishes conceptual and empirical studies in the field of Administration. Different theoretical and methodological perspectives are acceptable as long as they are consistent, relevant, and potentially impactful for the global audience. Papers with potentially high impact may receive priority in the review process. We understand that such impact can be due to theoretical models or implications for Brazilian and global organizations, or also to comparisons between them. To be published in BAR, articles must convey relevant theoretical or applied contributions to the field of Administration.

The target audience of BAR is the Brazilian and the international scholarly communities in the field of Administration.

Areas of interest:

Accountancy, Entrepreneurship, Finance & Economics, Human Resources & Labor Relations Management, Management Information Systems & Decision Support, International Business, Logistics, Operations & Supply Chain Management, Marketing, Organization Studies, Public Administration, Science, Technology & Innovation Management, Social & Environmental Management, and Strategy.


Launched in 2004, BAR has an international scope in terms of topics of interest, target audience, and editorial boards. It is an A2-journal according to the Brazilian classification Qualis/Capes, which is thus a strong signal about the quality of published works and about the transparency of the editorial process. BAR follows the editorial principles available in document Best Practices of Scientific Publication, an initiative championed by the Brazilian Academy of Management (ANPAD) that seeks to assist journals to achieve high scholarly standards and enhance their impact as sources for theoretical and applied research. Furthermore, since 2013, BAR is a member of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics), what is another signal of efforts made towards adhering to the most rigorous ethical principles in academic publication.


BAR is published quarterly (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December), but it also adheres to continuous publication model.

Its abbreviated for is BAR, Braz. Adm. Rev., which should be used in cataloguing, footnotes and bibliographical references.
