INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope and policy

The editorial line of RAE-Revista de Administração de Empresas

Mission
The mission of RAE-Revista de Administração de Empresas is to encourage the production and dissemination of knowledge about business administration.

Focus
RAE
is interested in publishing papers that are theoretical in their development, empirical works and essays.

We accept contributions from both Brazil and abroad in the fields of business administration and related areas. We encourage a wide range of approaches and views.

As a journal of general interest in the business administration area it covers a broad spectrum of sub-areas of knowledge, perspectives and issues.

RAEs main readers are academics - professors, researchers and students

Submission
Articles must be sent to the Editorial Office by Internet through ScholarOne, an online submission and paper management system which we operate in partnership with SciELO: http://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/rae-scielo.

Articles can be submitted in Portuguese, English or Spanish, observing the correct format, text positioning and style, as well as the standardization norms specific to the section the work falls into. It is essential to carefully read the RAE-publications Guidelines, especially the Format and Author sections, for an efficient preparation of the article.
The articles published in RAE are bilingual: Portuguese/English or Spanish/English. After approval, it is the authors' responsibility to provide the English version when the text is submitted in Portuguese or Spanish.

Authors can only submit one article at a time (this rule also applies to calls for papers), i.e., during the time an article is being evaluated, its authors cannot submit another one, whether as the main author or a co-author. If the article is rejected in one of the steps of the process, the authors may submit the same article, provided it has been returned in the "reject & resubmit" status, or submit a new article.

Originality and exclusivity
Papers submitted for publication in RAE-Revista de Administração de Empresas must be original, hitherto unpublished and not being considered by any other publication.

Review
Articles submitted to the RAE first pass through a preliminary triage in terms of format (to see whether they conform to expected norms and formats) and then pass through a system
that detects similarities. They are then evaluated in a three step process:

Desk review conducted by the Editor-in- Chief, who examines whether the work fits into the journal's general scope and whether it has potential for publication;

A preliminary evaluation by a member of the Scientific Editorial Board, who seeks to identify the article's contribution to its specialty; the consistency of its scientific methodology and the sample used; as well as its relevance and whether its bibliography is up to date. In this step, the scientific editor decides whether the article should be rejected or should continue on to the next step in the process; and

The double blind review: coordinated by a member of the Scientific Editorial Board from the article's specialty, consists of the interaction between the authors of the paper and two
specialists who in evaluating the work make comments and suggestions to improve it. Usually the scientific editors and the Editor-in- Chief add editorial advice to the reviewers' suggestions to improve the article for publication. This step involves continuing reassessments and gathering resources to improve the article.

Preparation for publication
Once approved, the article is submitted for editing and language revision. The Editorial Board submits the final version for authors' approval and any updates, such as institutional affiliation.

From 1 January 2018, if an article is submitted in Portuguese or Spanish and approved, the authors are responsible for providing its translation into English, thus ensuring its bilingual publication.
