PHYSIS PUBLISHES ARTICLES IN THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:
ORIGINAL UNSOLICITED ARTICLES (UP TO 7,000 WORDS, INCLUDING ENDNOTES AND REFERENCES): unpublished papers resulting from research or bibliographical analysis. The Editor reserves the right to accept or reject any submitted papers, following the recommendations of its Editorial Board, based on anonymous assessment of reviewers - double-blind peer review - and according to space availability.
ORIGINAL ARTICLES AT THE EDITOR'S INVITATION (UP TO 8,000 WORDS, INCLUDING ENDNOTES AND REFERENCES): unpublished articles resulting from research or bibliographical analysis. The Editorial Board and the invited editor may either ask experienced authors to forward original papers on previously decided themes, according to the journal planning, or decide on the acceptance, based on anonymous assessment of two reviewers (double-blind peer review). Reviews and comments usually come at the invitation to the authors by the Editors. Articles that, due to their authorial characteristic cannot be anonymously assessed, will be analyzed by an anonymous reviewer (single-blind peer review).
REVIEWS (UP TO 4,000 WORDS, INCLUDING ENDNOTES AND REFERENCES): Physis welcomes unsolicited reviews and invites authors to send them as well. The Editorial Board will decide on the publication, considering the theme, quality of typescript and space availability.
Interviews (UP TO 4,000 WORDS): this section welcomes testimonies of people whose life stories or professional achievements are relevant to the journal's scope.
Presentation of articles and reviews:
Papers should be submitted online only at http://submission.scielo.br/index.php/physis.
Texts must be typewritten 1.5 spaced throughout, with the file in Word (6.0 version on) or RTF, using font Arial size 12, according to the number of words established for each section (comprising text, notes and references). Articles should not bring any information about authorship; information about authors must be provided in specific fields of the site.
Papers presenting the results of research involving human beings must contain a clear statement of compliance with ethical principles, according to the Helsinki Declaration and the Brazilian legislation issued by the Research Ethics National Committee (CONEP). Authors should indicate whether the research work has been sponsored, is based on a Master's thesis or Doctorate dissertation, and must as well disclosure any potential conflict of interest.
Physis welcomes articles written in Portuguese (preferably), English, Spanish and French. The Editorial Board reserves the right to make changes and/or cuts in the texts, following the standards of the journal, preserving, however, style and content. Authors are responsible for all concepts and information presented in the papers and reviews, which may not necessarily reflect the views of the Editors and Editorial Board.
Abstracts in Portuguese and English should be limited to 250 words and include the main objective, methods, most relevant results and main conclusions of the articles (except for reviews, interviews and letters). Three to five key works must be included, in Portuguese and English. The title must also be translated. The Editorial Board may review the translations. Titles, abstracts and key words must be inserted in specific fields of the site.
Figures must be presented in separate archives (tiff or jpeg, minimum resolution 200dpi, maximum size 12x15cm), consecutively numbered and titled, with the indication of units in which values are expressed. Tables may be prepared in Word. Corresponding references must be mentioned. Graphs and maps must be clearly drawn and all the data identified, using CorelDraw or Photoshop. These must be sent as supplementary documents, and authors must indicate the correct place to insert the figures in the text.
Endnotes must be numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals, before the references, with size 10 font. As succinctly as possible, endnotes must be exclusively explanatory. There is no limitation to the number of endnotes.
References should be cited and organized following ABNT style (NBR 6023, issued August 2000). In the text, cite the author's last name and year of publication, followed by page number in citations. All cited references should be listed at the end of the paper in alphabetical order, according to the examples below. Authors are responsible for the exactness of the references and correct citation.
Articles published in Physis are under a license Creative Commons Attribution 3.0. Articles are submitted and accepted for publication with the understanding that they represent original material, have not been published previously, are not under consideration elsewhere and all authors have granted permission for publication in Physis. To publish an article elsewhere after its publication in Physis, authors should mention the first publication in this journal. So the texts submitted to Physis should be followed by a "Statement of copyright transfer" (model provided by Physis), signed by the author(s), scanned and uploaded as supplementary document.
Given the growth in the number of co-authors in many articles referred to Physis, there will be enough rigor in assessing the real contribution of each author. The Editorial Board reserves the right to reject articles whose authors do not provide satisfactory explanations about this item, especially in texts with four or more authors. The responsibilities of all the authors in the preparation of the article should be indicated in the "Statement of responsibility" (see model), as approved by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, which acknowledges the authorship based on substantial contribution related to: (1) design and design or analysis and interpretation of data; (2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; and (3) final approval of the version to be published. This statement must also be signed by the authors, scanned and sent as a supplementary document. May be included an item of "Thanks" to quote institutions that somehow enabled the research and/or people who collaborated with the study but did not meet the criteria for co-authoring.
Upon publication of approved papers, and if requested by e-mail, one reprint is mailed free of charge to the corresponding author(s).M
Papers which do not comply with these guidelines will not be published, even if they have been approved on merit by the reviewers. The Editors reserve the right to ask authors to suit the articles to the standards above, or even withhold their publication. Any other observation should come in the field "Comments to the Editor".
Authors are responsible for all concepts and information presented in the papers and reviews.
The Editorial Board will decide on how to proceed for particular cases.
