SCOPE AND EDITORIAL POLICY
The journal ‘Saúde em Debate’ (Health in Debate), created in 1976, is published by Centro Brasileiro de Estudos de Saúde (Cebes) (Brazilian Center for Health Studies), that aims to disseminate studies, researches and reflections that contribute to the debate in the collective health field, especially those related to issues regarding policy, planning, management and assessment in health.

Guidelines for the preparation and submission of articles
Every manuscript received by ‘Saúde em Debate’ is submitted to prior analysis. Works that are not in accordance to the journal publishing norms shall be returned to the authors for adequacy and new submission. Once the journal’s standards have been entirely met, manuscripts will be appraised by the Editorial Board, composed of the editor-in-chief and associate editors, for originality, scope, topicality, and compliance with the journal’s editorial policy. Articles recommended by the Board shall be forwarded for assessment to at least two reviewers, who will be indicated according to the theme of the work and to their expertise, and who will provide their approval, refusal, and/or make recommendations to the authors.
‘Saúde em Debate’ uses the double-blind review method, which means that the names of both the authors and the reviewers are concealed from one another during the entire assessment process. In case there is divergence between the reviewers, the article will be sent to a third reviewer. Likewise, the Editorial Board may also produce a third review. The reviewers’ responsibility is to recommend the acceptance, the refusal, or the reformulation of the works. In case there is a reformulation request, the authors shall return the revised work until the stipulated date. In case this does not happen, the work shall be excluded from the system.
The editorial Board has full authority to decide on the final acceptance of the work, as well as on the changes made.
No additions or changes will be accepted after the final approval of the work. In case the journal’s Editorial Board has any suggestions regarding changes on the structure or contents of the work, these shall be previously agreed upon with the authors by means of e-mail communication.
The typeset article proof will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author; it must be carefully checked and returned until the stipulated date.
Complementary information (should be sent in a separate file)
a) Conflict of interest. The works submitted for publication must comprise information on the existence of any type of conflict of interest. Financial conflict of interest, for example, is related not only to the direct research funding, but also to employment link.
