INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope and policy

The editorial policy of INTER has as its principle, the registering and divulging of knowledge from the national and international scientific community. For this, it stimulates and develops interchange among researchers, teachers, students and professionals, who are active within the theme of local development, facilitating the approximation between scientific knowledge and the community. Another slant of the journal is to foment the interchange of information and experiences within the ambit of local development and related themes with other institutions, thus establishing a channel for the transmitting of studies and recent progress in the various areas of knowledge which converge on the themes in question.

The areas of interest of INTER are directed towards local development within the context of territoriality, which touch on micro and small undertakings: business chains, systems and local production arrangements, agro-forest systems and animal raising, productive chains, focusing on  processes which are interactive, cooperative, innovative and sustainable. Also of great interest to the journal are publications focusing on social-community dimensions with attention to traditional communities: the theory of social grouping, traditional communities (indigenous peoples, communities made up of the descendants of slaves, primitive fishermen, riverside populations, religious communities, amongst others), with a focus on their way of life, accumulated traditional knowledge and ways of territorial use for local development.

INTER publishes articles which can focus on local development, via theoretical reflections and reports of experiences, establishing a productive interaction between praxis and concepts (articles, interviews, reports, praxis-concepts). The summaries of dissertations are occasionally published which have been presented in the Post-Graduate Studies program in Local Development - an academic Master's Degree at the Dom Bosco Catholic University.

The evaluation of INTER is carried out semiannually by the members of the journal, by the Counsel for the Program of Post-Graduate Studies in Local Development, on which occasion the articles published are analyzed, with suggestions which bring about constant improvements in the journal.

The reading public of the journal are teachers, students, recent graduates, professionals in diverse areas of knowledge, business managers in public and private institutions, local, regional, national and international governing bodies. Also there is a system of exchange with other institutions.
