INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS

 

From 2010 on, the process of submission and evaluation of submitted articles to the PHYSIS - Collective Health Journal will be done through the System SciELO / SEER. Until December 15, 2009 we will receive articles according to the "Instructions for Contributors" currently in force. The new instructions for submitting articles will be released in January 2010.

 

Scope and editorial policy

Physis is a quarterly scientific journal concerned with academic production in the field of Collective Health. Its editorial guidelines emphasize interdisciplinary critical and innovative approaches on themes considered current and relevant in the field of Collective Health. The journal is basically composed of unsolicited papers, as well as a section of reviews. The Editorial Board may occasionally propose specific themes, considered relevant, and publish papers of invited authors who are specialists on the theme, and which will undergo a process of peer review as well.

 

Preparation of typescripts

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ORIGINAL UNSOLICITED ARTICLES (UP TO 7,000 WORDS, INCLUDING ENDNOTES AND REFERENCES): unpublished papers resulting from research or bibliographical analysis.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ORIGINAL ARTICLES AT THE EDITOR'S INVITATION (UP TO 8,000 WORDS, INCLUDING ENDNOTES AND REFERENCES): unpublished articles resulting from research or bibliographical analysis.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.

Letters (UP TO 1,500 WORDS): this section reviews published on the journal or notes and opinions on issues of interest to readers.
