Types of articles
The Journal publishes full-length research papers, short communications, invited review articles and letters to the editor.
Standard research papers: Should report complete and original work, in which the reproducibility of results is clearly established. The full text should not exceed 25 pages, including references, figures and tables.
Short communications: Should report conclusive results and not preliminary data. It is an alternative format to describe, more concisely, partial results of a larger work, or reporting conclusive results based on a smaller amount of data. The full text should not exceed 15 printed pages, including references, figures and tables.
Reviews: Should be an in-depth report on the state-of-the-art of a particular topic written at the invitation of the Editorial Board, with unlimited number of pages.
Letters to the Editor: Should present, in an informal way, technical and scientific topics of interest to the agricultural and biological sciences community. Their publication will be determined by the Editorial Board.

Manuscripts and short reports
Authors should indicate the area and subareas of the manuscript, before the title to facilitate the sending of manuscripts to the reviewers. At the bottom of this page are listed the areas and sub-areas of CERES Journal.
The manuscripts must have the following sections:
The FOOTNOTES should have the following information:
In AUTHORS CONTRIBUTION, it should be specified what was the contribution of each one of the authors in carring the research.
The title should have no more than 20 words, centered on the page and in bold. Only the first word should be with the first letter capitalized and the others in lowercase, except the necessary cases (for example, scientific names; Phaseolus vulgaris). When needed, the footnote is introduced at its final using superscript Arabic number (see footnote item).
The word “ABSTRACT” should be written in upper case letter, aligned to the left and in bold type. This section consists of no more than 200 words in one paragraph. The text should contain hypothesis, objectives, material, and methods; the achieved expressive results and conclusion. The abstract should start on the line following the title of this section.
Key words should not exceed a minimum of three words and a maximum of six words and should be cited in the paragraph following the abstract. The first letter of the key word is written in lowercase (except scientific names) and, separated preferentially by a semicolon without repeating the words contained in the title of the paper.
The title of this section, “INTRODUCTION,” should be written in the uppercase letter, aligned to the left. The introduction should be in the study itself, situating the reader on its importance, hypothesis of the study and the objectives, which are expressed at the end of the introduction.
MATERIAL AND METHODS
The title of this section, "MATERIALS AND METHODS," should be written in capital letters, aligned to the left. The "MATERIAL AND METHODS " section should be written in sufficient details so that the work can be repeated. CERES Journal requires that the statistical procedures be specified in the article, including the design used, the number of repetitions and the statistical technique used. When no design was used, the article should describe how the experiment was conducted, and which statistical technique was used for data analyses. When the treatments are made up of quantitative factors with three or more levels, the response variables should be submitted to analysis of regression. If the comparison of the levels of the standard or control is of interest, the Dunnett test of should be used. The Editorial Board will evaluate special cases.
Research involving animal experimentation or humans should explain the protocol of approval by any Committee and Ethics in Animal Experimentation or Committee of Ethics in Research with Human Beings – or similar - in the first paragraph.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
The title of the section, "RESULTS AND DISCUSSION," should be written in capital letters, aligned to the left. The text should be clear and concise, supported by the relevant literature. Results and Discussion are sections that may be written together or separate.
Note: The sections Material and Methods and Results and Discussion may contain subsections, indicated by subheadings written in italics and bold. The first letter should be capitalized and centered.
The title of the "CONCLUSIONS" section should be capitalized, aligned to the left. The conclusions should be concise and derived from the data presented and discussed. Each conclusion must be state in a new paragraph.

k) Citation in the text
References should be cited in the text, following the format: (Author, Year), (Author & Author, Year), (Author et al., Year) or (Silva, 1999; Arariki & Borges, 2003; Santos et al., 2007), always in ascending chronological order.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, FINANCIAL SUPPORT and FULL DISCLOSURE
Authors must inform if they were granted with financing or support from institution.
DECLARATION OF ORIGINALITY, SIMILARITY CHECK AND COPYRIGHT ASSIGNMENT
The faking of data is a serious misconduct.
The CERES Journal uses the CrossRef Similarity Check software as na antiplagiarism tool.
The originality statement is compulsory and should be attached to “additional documents.” It should be printed, signed by all authors and scanned. A statement for each author may be sent if a unique document will all signatures of all authors cannot be sent. Electronic signatures will not be accepted.
The Statement model is at the bottom of this page.
Norms for figures and tables
The figures and tables should be positioned after their citation in the body of the text.
The final diagramming of the manuscript can modify the positioning of the figures and tables in the text.
Figures and tables should not repeat the same data. Figures submitted in electronic format must have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, in JPG format. Any illustration that has already been published must contain, below the legend, data on the source (author, date) from which it was extracted.
The full bibliographic reference related to the source of the illustration should appear in the References section. The cost of printing colored illustrations will be charged.
The term refers to the set of alphanumeric data ordered in rows and columns. It should be constructed only with horizontal separation lines in the header and at the end of the table. The caption initially receives the word Table, followed by the order number in Arabic numerals, separated from the table statement by two points and is referred to in the text as Table. Columns made up of fractional numbers; these should be aligned with the comma.
The term refers to any illustration consisting of or presenting lines and dots: drawing, photograph, graphic, flowchart, layout, etc. The drawings, graphs, etc. should be very clear. The captions initially receive the word Figure, followed by the order number in Arabic numerals separated from the figure sentence by a colon and is referred to in the text as Figure.
