Scope and policy

Editorial policy

Mission: The mission of BAR - Brazilian Administration Review is to contribute to  deeper understanding of theories of Administration and its managerial implications by means of global dissemination of relevant papers in theory development and application produced by the Brazilian academia and the international scholarly community.

Scope and focus: BAR publishes conceptual, empirical and methodology-focused articles in the broad field of Administration. Innovative theoretical and methodological perspectives are welcome as long as they are academically sound. Papers with greater potential for having an international impact will be given preference. To be published in BAR, articles must bring relevant theoretical, empirical or methodological contributions.

BAR’s editorial scope does not include teaching cases or purely applied, practitioner-oriented material.

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

Requirements: Submitted articles must be unpublished and should not be under consideration for publication in any other journal. Previous publication of papers in conference proceedings would not violate the originality requirements, but we recommend that articles are significantly improved after conference presentation. Articles must be written in English.


Article review

1. Article review consists of two stages. In the first stage, the editor-in-chief and an associate editor (chosen by the editor-in-chief based on the article’s main topic and methods) verify the relevance of the submitted article, its alignment with the journal’s editorial scope, and other aspects including originality and contribution to the area of submission. Only articles the editors consider relevant to the academic community and, in particular, to the journal’s audience, proceed to further stages. Articles that pass the first stage of analysis are sent to double blind, peer review by at least two reviewers assigned by the associate editor.

2. Neither ANPAD nor its editors are responsible for the opinions, ideas and concepts included in published materials beyond concurring with the potential academic impact on the literature. The authors bear full authority and responsibility on their articles.

3. In order to be published, authors must sign the Copyrights Letter, which is sent to the authors by e-mail, thus granting rights, including on translation, to BAR.

BAR adopts iThenticate to control for plagiarism.

There are no fees for submitting, reviewing or publishing articles in BAR.
