Basic information

Full Name of Journal:

Revista de Administração Contemporânea - RAC.

Editor in Chief
Herbert Kimura (UnB)


RAC publishes theoretical and theoretical-empirical articles in the areas of Management and Accounting. Different theoretical and methodological perspectives approaching these themes are acceptable, so long as they are consistent and relevant to developing the topic areas (articles based upon single study cases can be accepted if they deal with organizations that are highly representative of their respective sectors or if they offer a significant contribution towards knowledge development). Even though RAC considers articles that contribute to managerial practice, it is not a journal targeting practitioners from the general market, but rather members of the academic community. As such, the journal doesn't accept works that only focus on applying managerial models or techniques in an organizational environment, case studies that don't make a significant contribution to the advancement of theoretical knowledge, or empirical research without clear academic implications. Articles with these profiles should instead be submitted to the journal Tecnologias de Administração e Contabilidade - TAC (Management and Accounting Technologies) at In addition to articles, RAC publishes reviews, bibliographic summaries, and manuscripts for community reflection.

Target Public: The target public primarily consists of professionals and students from Brazilian academy, and likewise, managers in public, private, and third-sector organizations that are interested in dialogue and innovation in Management and Accounting Sciences.
