Scope and Policy

The journal Estudos Históricos has an interdisciplinary profile, its goal being the publication of unpublished works by researchers in the fields of History, Social Sciences, Literature, etc., which have a historical perspective.

Estudos Históricos will only accept unpublished works in the form of articles, reviews and bibliographic analyses. All articles presented to the publishers will be submitted to two evaluators so that they can give an assessment. The process of evaluation by pairs is the system of blind review, in a procedure that keeps secret the identity of the authors and of the revisers. In case a conflict of interests on the part of the revisers is detected, the Editorial Committee will send the manuscript to another reviser ad hoc. In case there are disagreements in the assessments, the editors will send the text to a third party for evaluation.

The assessments of the revisers will recommend, alternatively:

a) complete acceptance;
b) acceptance with reformulations;
c) refusal of the submitted text.

In any of these cases, the author will be informed. The final decision on whether or not the manuscript will be published is always made by the editors, who also reserve themselves the right to decide on the necessity of introducing alterations in the composition of the originals. The alterations always aim at keeping the homogeneity and quality of journal, albeit respecting the style and the opinion of the authors. Therefore, the articles will express solely and exclusively the opinions and conclusions of its authors.

The texts written in foreign languages, when accepted by the Editorial Board, will be translated to Portuguese with permission of the author.
