Aims and Scope

The Brazilian Journal of Chemical Engineering publishes papers reporting on basic and applied research and innovation in the field of Chemical Engineering and related areas. The journal publishes original papers, short communications and letters to the editor. Review articles reporting relevant discussions and conclusions of published papers will also be considered for publication. Papers previously published elsewhere cannot be accepted for the journal. Exception can be made for papers previously published in proceeding of conferences. The acceptance for publication lies with the editors and is based on the recommendations of at least two ad hoc referees, and of the editorial board, if necessary.
