Basic information

Revista Brasileira de Saúde Ocupacional - RBSO - is an open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal edited and published by FUNDACENTRO since 1973, and aims at propagating original unpublished research articles on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) that can contribute to understand and improve work conditions, to prevent injuries and labor illness, as well as supporting discussions and defining public policies related to the theme.

The journal publishes updated and diversified OSH topics, as well as introduces, whenever suitable, systematized contributions on specific themes with the purpose of enriching technical-scientific debates among researchers, educators, legislators, and professionals not only in the OSH field, but also to related areas.

Since 2016, RBSO is no longer published in the format of numbered editions. It has changed to the rolling pass system, maintaining one annual on-line volume with manuscripts published one by one during the year. Special and thematic editions might be printed, besides coming out on-line.

Its abbreviated title is  Rev Bras Saude Ocup, to be used in bibliographies, footnotes, quotations as well as in bibliographical references and strips.
