Form and preparation of manuscripts

Revista Brasileira de Economia (RBE) publishes analytical studies, both theoretical and empirical, which present original research into the field of General Economics. The journal also publishes book reviews, which critically comment on books related to Economics, edited in Brazil and abroad.

All the papers submitted to RBE are analyzed by external reviewers, and the authors will be notified about the acceptance or refusal of their work. The articles are sent to two reviewers; on very rare occasions, the articles are sent to one reviewer only. In such case, the editor will also review the articles. Associate editors help in different fields of Economics, in the choice of some reviewers and, sporadically, in editorial decisions.

Papers submitted to RBE must comply with the following requirements:

  • In the initial submission, the manuscripts must be sent as a pdf file;
  • If accepted, typesetting will only be free of charge for those manuscripts sent in LaTeX format (article category). For manuscripts in doc (Microsoft Word) or rtf, the authors will be charged a fee of R$ 12.00 (twelve reais) per page. No other file format will be accepted.
  • The manuscripts must include abstracts in Portuguese and in English, containing no more than 100 (one hundred) words, keywords, and JEL codes;
  • The title page must include the following authorship information: name of the author(s), affiliation(s), and address for correspondence;
  • References must be formatted according to the Brazilian National Standards Organization, known as Associação Brasileira de Normas Técnicas (ABNT, NBR-6023), and listed at the end of the manuscript. When the manuscript is sent in Latex format, the references must be included in a separate bib file so that they can be processed by BibTeX;
  • The manuscripts must be sent only through the online submission system.
