The journal Paidéia (e-ISSN 1982-4327) is linked to the Graduate Program in Psychology of the Ribeirão Preto School of Philosophy, Sciences and Languages of the University of São Paulo. Published since 1991, it adopted from 2018 the system of publication in continuous flow (rolling pass), it issues research that addresses a problem clearly related to Psychology, specifically in the areas: Psychology of Health, Developmental Psychology, School and Educational Psychology, Social Psychology and Psychological Evaluation.
In the Declaration of Responsibility and Copyright Transfer, the authors need to specify the category the submitted manuscript fits into.
Paidéia receives manuscripts based on different theoretical-methodological approaches acknowledged by Psychology. The authors are solely responsible for the papers published, whose opinions and judgments do not necessarily reflect the thoughts of the Editorial Board.
The abbreviation of its title is Paidéia (Riberão Preto) and must be employed in the references.
Resolution of conflicts of interest and ethical violations
Paidéia follows the code of ethical conduct in publications recommended by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (http://publicationethics.org) and the conducts of Best Practices of Publishing ─ Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (http://publicationethics.org/resources/code-conduct).
The editors will take the necessary measures to identify and prevent the publication of articles where research misconduct or ethical violations occur, including plagiarism, manipulation of citations and falsification / fabrication of data, absence of relevant authorizations, discrimination, among others. The situations and allegations that come to the knowledge of editors and reviewers will be taken to the Editorial Committee, which will take the appropriate measures, including referral to higher levels of the University, if necessary.
Publication types accepted by Paidéia
Paidéia strongly discourages multiple manuscripts on the same research.
Editorial board review
The editorial review process only starts if the submitted manuscript strictly complies with the conditions published in the Publication Guidelines. If this is not the case, the submitted manuscript will be refused and filed. If a manuscript fits into one of the publication categories specified above, it will be submitted to pre-analysis by the Editorial Board. After checking for compliance with all Publication Guidelines, it will be forwarded for review by ad hoc consultants, presupposing that: (a) it has not been published elsewhere or is not under other editors analysis, (b) manuscripts with similar contents should not have been published or be under any other editor’s analysis, (c) all listed authors approved its submission to Paidéia for publication.
The editorial process of Paidéia is based on double blind peer review, which means that the authors and ad hoc reviewers’ identities are not revealed. The process starts when the manuscript is submitted to Paidéia, followed by a confirmation receipt from the journal Secretariat. First, the Editorial Board analyzes the original, based on the following criteria: (a) contents in accordance with the journal’s editorial line; (b) originality, relevance of the theme and quality of the scientific method used; (c) compliance with the editorial standards the journal adopts; (d) if the manuscript is submitted in a foreign language, intelligibility and correction of the writing.
The result of this pre-analysis phase can be: (a) the manuscript returns to the authors for modifications, in case formal requirements are not complied with; (b) rejection or (c) continuation of the review process if the manuscript complies with the above criteria.
Next, the Editorial Board will analyze the submitted papers, supported by ad hoc reviewers of renowned competence in the specific knowledge area. The abstract is used to consult the reviewers. In general, between three and five researchers are invited to issue their expert opinion. In case an invited reviewer meets any impediment to pronounce him/herself on the manuscript (professional or financial conflict of interests, direct and indirect benefits), the Editorial Board should be informed. The first review round starts with the forwarding of the full manuscript to those reviewers who accepted the invitation. At least two reviewers assess the original version of the manuscript. The analysis will be based on the assessment instrument the journal adopts. After an accurate analysis of the submitted manuscript, the reviewers suggest rejection or recommend publication – which can be conditioned to recommended changes. Each reviewer issues an opinion on a standard form.
Acceptance of the submitted manuscript can be conditioned to modifications that aim to improve the text’s clarity or precision. The authors will receive the versions of the reviewers’ opinions. The Editorial Board can further comment on the manuscript and inform this to the authors. Manuscripts recommended for publication but subject to modifications should be reformulated with a view to final acceptance. The reformulated version should be returned within 30 days, together with a letter from the authors to the Editorial Board, submitted in an additional document, listing the changes that were made based on the criticism/suggestions in the reviewers’ opinions, and justifying any suggestions that were not accepted. The reply letter should NOT contain any identification of the authors such as name, institution to which they belong, city, etc. End the reply letter with the expression "The authors".
ATTENTION: the journal system adopts the London time zone. If the authors lose the deadline, the system shall not be reopened and the submission will be lost. To avoid losing the submission, we recommend authors to avoid waiting until the last day to submit the revised manuscript, as the system is not national and will expire in the day scheduled, according to the London time zone. The guidelines shall be strictly followed throughout all stages of the editorial process so that the submission is not discontinued.
The Editorial Board will assess the response letter with the justifications, the reformulated manuscript and the Editorial Board’s opinion on the original version. If necessary, these documents can also be forwarded to the ad hoc consultants, who will assess the reformulations in line with the opinions issued, also assessing consistencies in the authors’ arguments. After this analysis, it is the responsibility of the Board to judge whether the manuscript can be published or requires further changes, or if it will be rejected. If the Editorial Board decides that the manuscript needs further changes, a new reformulation will be requested, following the process described above. Manuscripts can be submitted to two reformulations at most.
In specific situations (inconsistent opinions, ethical issues, ambivalent judgment, among others), the reformulated version of the manuscript can also be forwarded to a third ad hoc reviewer. In this analysis, the reviewer can reject the manuscript, suggest further changes may find necessary or accept the reformulated version. The Editorial Board will analyze the opinions to decide on whether or not to recommend publication.
If the manuscript displays conditions for acceptance, the Editorial Board will submit the opinions and text to a final analysis, looking for any further changes needed. In this stage, new adjustments to the abstracts, the body of the text, citations, references, tables, figures etc. may be requested. Failure to comply with these adjustments and / or the authors' lack of response within the deadlines established by Paidéia may lead to the archiving of the manuscript.
After completion of the merit assessment (content), the manuscript will be forwarded for the standardization procedures.
The standardization process consists of sending the manuscript for bibliographic review by the journal’s librarian, followed by standardization by the Editorial Board and Technical Team of Paidéia, with a view to final formal corrections. In this stage, new adjustments to the abstracts, the body of the text, citations, references, tables, figures etc. may be requested. Failure to comply with these adjustments and / or the authors' lack of response within the deadlines established by Revista Paidéia may lead to the archiving of the manuscript. Small modifications in the text writing/structure can be made, upon the Board’s decision.
It should be clarified that, based on the opinions issued, the Editorial Board is responsible for making the final judgment on the manuscript’s acceptance or refusal, as well as for its recommendation for publication. The authors will be informed of this decision. Only after strict compliance with the procedures described above can the manuscript be considered approved and will be forwarded for layout.
The composition of the papers approved for publication is based on the diversification of authorship per geographical region and institution, which implies that acceptance of the manuscript is not conditioned to its immediate publication.
PDF files are forwarded to the librarian team for indexation and to a specialized professional to prepare the texts in the SciELO method. In the final issue of each journal volume, the list of ad hoc consultants who cooperated with the assessment of manuscripts in that year is published.
|PDF proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for the correction of the article artwork. The proof must return to the Paidéia secretary on the stipulated date. The absence of a response from the authors within the deadlines established by Revista Paidéia may lead to the archiving of the manuscript. The names of the authors should be checked, as well as the order in which they appear and the presence of all the authors, the institutional affiliation and each name in bibliographical citation. Only spelling, word exchange, and numeric data corrections are allowed in the tables and graphs. Other changes in the original manuscript will not be accepted at this stage. The inclusion and/or exclusion of sentences, paragraphs, images and references will not be accepted. The corrections should be indicated in the body of the PDF file itself by means of highlights and explanatory balloons, according to the available tools. The corresponding author must sign the agreement of the final art (text and illustrations), whose model will be sent together with the proof, on behalf of the others. If there is a need for any change other than a one-time error as referred to above, the manuscript will return to the previous step, leaving the agenda for publication. Under no circumstances will corrections be accepted after the article has been published.|
The Editorial Board authorizes free access to and distribution of published contentes, provided that the source is cited, that is, granding credit to the authors and Paidéia and preserving the full text. The author is allowed to place the final version (postprint / editor’s PDF) in an institutional/thematic repositor or personal page (site, blog), immediately after publication, provided that it is available for open access and comes without any embargo period. Full reference should be made to the first publication in Paidéia (Ribeirão Preto). Access to the paper should at least be aligned with the access the journal offers.
As a legal entity, the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto School of Philosophy, Sciences and Languages owns and holds the copyright deriving from the publication. To use the papers, Paidéia adopts the Creative Commons Licence, CC BY-NC non-commercial attribution. This licence permits access, download, print, share, reuse and distribution of papers, provided that this is for non-commercial use and that the source is cited, giving due authorship credit to Paidéia. In these cases, neither authors nor editors need any permission.
When deriving from research involving human beings or animals, manuscripts require mandatory approval by a Research Ethics Committee (REC). Authors should attach the digital copy of the IRB declaration of approval, according to instructions displayed further ahead.
Reproduction of other publications
Citations of more than 500 words, reproductions of one or more figures, tables or other illustrions should be accompanied by written permission from the copyright owner of the original work with a view to reproduction in Paidéia. This permission has to be addressed to the author of the submitted manuscript. Secondarily obtained rights will not be transferred under any circumstance.
The attribution of authorship is based on the substantial contribution of each person listed as an author, concerning the conception and planning of the research project, data collection or analysis and interpretation, writing and critical review. The inclusion of names whose contribution are not in accordance with these criteria is not justified.The indication of the authors’ names, immediately below the article title, is limited to six. Further collaborators should be listed under acknowledgements. Each author shall indicate only one institutional affiliation. Only one submission is allowed per authors, i.e., the author cannot have two or more simultaneous manuscripts under evaluation, whether as main author or co-author. Paidéia does not publish more than one article of the same author (both as main author or c-author) in the same year (volume). This procedure aims at diversifying the themes and collaborations from national and international authors. Originals will be accepted for assessment provided that they were not sent to any other journal and/or previously published in scientific events.
The Journal will check, through plagiarism detection tools OriginalityCheck, FeedBackStudio and SimilarityCheck, all manuscripts submitted before sending them to the peer review. Paidéia considers double or fragmented publications of a same review to be an ethical infraction.

General orientations for submission
ATTENTION: The non-fulfillment of ANY of the items described in the instructions to authors and in the checklist for authors is sufficient for the REFUSAL of the manuscript at any stage/round of evaluation, which is why the Editorial Commission strongly recommends the authors to make a thorough review/formal adaptation of the manuscript before submission.
The journals’ office will verify it: (a) compliance of the manuscript with instructions to authors (publication norms); (b) compliance of the manuscript with the authors’ checklist. If there are any pending issues, the authors will have TWO OPPORTUNITIES for adaptation. Manuscripts pending more than twice due to inadequacy of the instructions to authors (publication norms) and the checklist will not be able to be submitted/received again.
Manuscripts have to be submitted exclusively through the electronic publication process management system (ScholarOne) available at http://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/paideia-scielo.
When submitting, he following files should be attached in the system (in the specific field):
In the submission, in the proper field, the author's ORCID® (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) registration number must be included in the system. All authors must have an updated record in ScholarOne, associated with ORCID. Remember that only the owners of their accounts can fill in or validate the ORCID with their own password. It is not possible for third parties to fill in and / or validate.
Manuscripts submitted via ScholarOne receive a numerical identification protocol.
Paidéia fully adopts the publication standards of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition, 2010). The APA orientation prevails over any possible omission of information in the following detailing. It is important to observe some steps before submitting the manuscript: (1) carefully revise the text for grammatical correction, typos and bibliographic errors, also considering the items included in the submission; (2) check whether all requisites of the Publication Guidelines were complied with the submission checklist.
When submitting, the manuscript should be submitted to Paidéia in Portuguese, except for the cases of full foreign authorship (English and/or Spanish) one.
Texts should be formatted as follows: double lining (distance of 1 cm between lines), justified, in font Times New Roman, size 12, across the text, respecting the page limit. The manuscript should be numbered. The A4 format should be adopted, with 2.5cm margins (upper, lower, left and right) and indentation of the first line of the paragraph: tab = 1.25cm.
The presentation of the papers has to follow a specific order, considering:
Examples of citations in the body of the manuscript
Citation of papers with multiple authors
Citation of papers based on a secondary source
The paper uses a reference that discusses another reference, without having fully read the original one (e.g. Flavell’s study, cited by Shore, 1982). This kind of citation should be avoided and limited to specific cases, which should be informed and justified to the editor in a separate message. In the text, the following citation format should be used:
In the References, inform the secondary source (in that case, Shore), using the appropriate format.
Citation of re-edited century-old publication
Author (date of original publication / date of consulted edition), as in Franco (1790/1946).
Orientations for bibliographic references
References should be arranged according to the following general rules. Papers by a single author and the same authors are ordered per publication year, from older to newer publications. Single-author precede multiple-author publications if the surname is the same. Papers in which the first author is the same but the co-authors differ are arranged by the co-authors surnames. Publications with the same multiple authorship are arranged per date, from the older to the newer. Papers with the same authorship and data are displayed alphabetically by the title, ignoring the first word if that is an article or pronoun, except when the title itself contains an indication of order; the year is immediately followed by lower-case letters. When repeated, the author’s name should not be replaced by a hyphen or other signs. The formatting of the bibliographic list should be appropriate for review and editing, with double lining and font 12. Each reference should be placed in a new paragraph, with an indentation of half centimeter from the left margin on the second line. Carefully check the Publication Guidelines before preparing the references. The authors are fully responsible for the exactness of references. Below are examples of common reference types.
Quick communication may also be done via: Phone: 55 16 3315.3829, or e-mail: email@example.com
If you are the author of a manuscript submitted, when directing email to the journal secretary insert in the title of the message the number of the manuscript in the system.
