Preprint publishing

The RBRH journal supports the good practices of Open Science that result in a more transparent editorial process. Accordingly, manuscripts deposited on preprint servers may be submitted to RBRH. The journal’s editorial committee will decide the peer review process for manuscripts from preprint servers.

Preprints are defined as an author's version for a research manuscript prior to formal peer review in a journal, which is deposited with a public servant. Preprints can be deposited at any time during the peer review process. The publication of preprints is not considered a prior publication and will not compromise the consideration of this journal.

Once the accepted manuscript is published in RBRH, the preprint version must be changed to include the link that directs to the final version published in the journal.

Authors can choose the preprint server. The journal’s editorial board recommends SciELO Preprints server at
