INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Scope and policy

Tempo Social is open to the collaboration of well-known researchers from Brazilian or foreign Universities and Research Institutes. Its editorial orientations aims to provide space for the discussion of Brazilian contemporary sociological themes, from a comparative perspective with other countries, in order to encourage discussions and constant dialogue with fields akin to sociology, such as anthropology, political sciences, philosophy and history. Thus, it is not to be characterized as a departmental journal. Its main objective is to produce an exchange of ideas regarding Brazilian reality and its insertion as a South American country, in an ever more globalized and internationalized world, in its search for ways and proposals towards the transformation of our social and cultural reality.

1) Articles are the sole responsibility of their authors. Reproduction, total or partial, is allowed as long as the full reference is given.

2) Submissions are accepted for publication on the understanding that they have not previously been published and that they are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. They should preferably be written in Portuguese.

3) Ad hoc referees will read the papers after the Editorial Board has evaluated them, and they may accept, reject, or return the original manuscripts with suggested alterations. Referees will remain anonymous, as well as contributors.

4) TEMPO SOCIAL has the copyright of the published articles, including those of translated materials. However, future reproduction will be allowed with the proper reference.

5) Authors will not be submitted to APCs charges (chargers regarding the evaluation) and submission charges.

 

Shape and draft preparation

1) Articles should not exceed 51,000 characters.

2) The title of the paper (45 characters at the most) appears in the headline, and the name of the author(s) should have a footnote reference with information on the Department, Faculty and University where they work, or do their post-graduate studies.

3) Authors should submit their papers with:

a) an abstract, with the translation into English, including the title, of about 750 characters, which should synthesize the aims, methods and conclusions of the paper;
