List of Authors
Include the full names of all authors, one per line. Use superscript numeric references to relate affiliations, and an asterisk "*" to indicate the corresponding author. Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, according to our editorial policies, should only be included in the acknowledgments.
The journal Gestão e Produção also recommends the adoption and submission of the ORCID ID for all authors. Example:

Second Author Name (*1

List of Affiliations
The list of affiliations should follow the authors’ names, with one affiliation per line, according to this template:
1Group, Laboratory, Program, Department, Institute, College or School, University - Abbreviation, Address, PO Box, Zip CodeCityStateCountryE-mail. (Items in bold are required).

Contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship, according to our editorial policies, should only be included in the acknowledgments.
The identification of the authors must be present in a separate document from the main text, named authorship.docx. This document should contain:

The following statements should be prepared as directed in editorial policies:

  • Declaration of funding sources: Any support that has been received should be described, including agency and project data, e.g. "This work was supported by FAPESP (projects xxxx, yyyy); and CNPq (project zzzzzz)." If the work has not received financial support, include the following statement: "This work did not have specific funding from institutions or bodies in the public, private, or non-profit sectors."
  • Declaration of Conflict of Interest: Develop the statement as described in our editorial policies. In the event that there is no potential conflict of interest, authors should state "The authors declare no relevant conflicts of interest."
  • Data availability statement: Follow editorial policy guidelines and make a statement about whether the data used is available and how it can be obtained, or a statement of the reason for not making the data available.

The manuscript.docx file should contain the main body of the manuscript, including the following:

Avoid using acronyms or formulas. Keep in mind that the title of your article will often appear in search results, so keep it informative and concise. After the title in the primary language of the research, include your translated version. Texts in English should include the translation of the title into Portuguese, and vice-versa.

Abstract and keywords
Compose an unstructured abstract, of between 150 and 250 words, which can stand alone without the need for references, and without using abbreviations. If acronyms are absolutely necessary, they must be defined at the earliest opportunity.
Include 3 to 6 keywords after the abstract.
Texts in English should include translation of the abstract and keywords into Portuguese, and vice-versa.

Separate and organize your text clearly into numbered sections. The subsections should be numbered 1.1 (after 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract should not be included in the section numbering).

Graphic figures, images, flowcharts, drawings, etc. must be cited in the body of the text in Arabic numerals and present a resolution of 300 dpi. Figures may be inside or outside the document, provided only one copy of each figure cited in the text is presented. Figure captions should be just below them. If there is text in the figure, ensure it is in the language of the article.
Because Gestão e Produção is a priority online publication, authors can use colors in the preparation of their figures. Figures will not be redrawn or edited and therefore should be prepared, preferably by a professional, with care so that they maintain uniformity in the type and size of source used throughout the whole article. We recommend that all ICJME guidelines be followed for preparation of illustrations for submission ( Images should not be manipulated or adjusted in a way that could result in misinterpretation of the information. We recommend observing the tips and examples published in "What's in a picture? The temptation of image manipulation" (Rossner and Yamada 2004, Journal of Cell Biology, 166: 11).
The graphics, photographs, diagrams, illustrations, etc. are considered figures, and should be sent in TIFF or JPG formats, with a minimum size of 2500 pixels wide, in addition to allowing the perfect reading of all texts and symbols used.
If you use arrows, symbols, letters, or numbers to identify parts of the figures, be sure to clearly identify them in the legend.

These should always be editable, that is, made using the ability to create tables in MS Word. Use tables to present quantifiable data and pictures to present non-quantifiable information. Tables and pictures should always be cited in the text, using numeration in Arabic numerals and in the order in which they appear in the text.
The tables and graphs must be inserted in the article after the "References", always preceded by their respective caption.
The caption should be a brief description of the table, and specific explanations of values or abbreviations should be inserted in its footer.

The magazine Gestão e Produção does not use footnotes under any circumstances.

Mathematical equations and expressions
Simple formulas displayed online can be expressed as plain text when possible. All mathematical expressions must be editable, using the native MS Word editor or MathType, and numbered in Arabic numerals and quoted in the order they appear in the text.

Language features
In decimal numbers for texts in Portuguese or Spanish, use commas, not decimal points. Foreign words that appear in the text should be in italics (for example: et al.).

Please make sure that all citations are in the reference list and vice versa. All citations made in the text should be referenced following the standard set forth in the sixth edition of the American Psychological Association's Publication Manual.
Citations made in the body of the text should always be followed by the year of publication of the reference: Donaire (1999) or (Donaire, 1999).
When two authors, indicate the surnames of the authors separated by "&": Ackermann & Eden (2001) or (Ackermann & Eden, 2001).
If there are more than two authors, cite the surname of the first, followed by the expression "et al.": Manso et al. (2015) or (Manso et al., 2015).
If there is more than one article by the same authors published in the same year, make the distinction with lower case letters: Manso et al. (2015a, b).
To separate two or more quotations, use the semicolon: (Manso et al.; 2015, Ackermann & Eden, 2001; Donaire, 1999a, b)

The list of references will be reformatted to the APA style; however, authors may submit in any of the most established international formats (APA, Harvard, Chicago, etc.), provided that it is presented in alphabetical order of the last surname of the first author followed by the using the lowercase letters (a, b, etc.) when necessary. References should include the names of all authors, and names of journals should be indicated in full. Here are some examples formatted according to the APA standard:
