Basic information

INTERAÇÕES - Revista Internacional de Desenvolvimento Local is a periodical of the Universidade Católica Dom Bosco (UCDB) and has its aims: retrieving and divulging systematized information and constructive experiences linked to the idea of Local Development; giving information to researchers and scholars who work with this theme, for the adoption of new local forms of social behavior; offering efficient forms for the generation of endogenous development, according to means, rules and appropriate strategies, respecting cultural diversity and autonomous management of resources and technical characteristics of territories.

The area of interest of INTER is Local Development in the context of territorialities and has as sub-areas, Local Development in territorialities of micro and small enterprises and Local Development in social-communitarian dimensions with attention to traditional communities (indigenous peoples, communities of the descendents of runaway slaves, survival fishermen, riverside populations, religious communities, amongst others).

With the implantation of the Post-Graduate Program in Local Development - Academic Master's Degree, in the second semester of 1998, the production of a scientific journal of international ambit became imperative. Thus, the first issue of the Journal, in September of 2000, constitutes a commemorative landmark, in that a new factor permitted the inter-relationship of activities of the program with the international scientific community and the community in Mato Grosso do Sul.

The name of the journal makes clear, implicitly, the specifications of the place within its relationships with the global, as the word, "interação" (interaction) exists in a good number of western languages: interaccióninteractioninterazioneinteraktion; nevertheless, the title of the journal brings two specifications in the Portuguese language, which are the tilde and the ç (cedilla), which by the way are emphasized in the composition of the cover. Furthermore, in relation to the interaction of the countries that follow the linguistic norms practiced in Portugal, the Brazilian idiom also brings a specification of spelling. Thus the intention is to suggest the character of diversity present in the notions of nature amply shared on a global sphere.

Also the photograph on the cover makes clear one of the greatest concerns of the researchers in the area of knowledge in question: the development on a human scale, or man placed in the center of the development process.

INTER is a semiannual journal. There are two publications per year, being one from January to June and one from July to December.

From 2000 to 2007 INTER published 118 articles (more than 35% international), seven praxis, three interviews and 87 summaries of dissertations from the Post-Graduate Studies Program in Local Development - Academic Master's Degree defended between 2002 and 2006.
Arlinda Cantero Dorsa is the editor of INTER.

Its abbreviated title is Interações (Campo Grande), which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
