Scope and editorial policy
The journal targets the following audience:
College professors of History; other college professors, especially in the Social Sciences, History of Science, Education, Philosophy, Arts and Human Sciences in general; graduate students of History, Art, Music, History of Science and Human Sciences in general; specialists and high-school teachers of History, Art, Music and Philosophy; undergraduate students of History and Human Sciences in general; general readers interested.
Varia Historia is composed of four sections: thematic dossiers, articles, reviews, and critical edition of documents. A professor associated with one of the research areas of the graduate program in History at UFMG organizes, on a rotation basis and by invitation, the thematic dossiers. The articles, reviews, and critical edition of documents are submitted to two peer-reviewers from the board or ad hoc for evaluation concerning thematic pertinence, argumentation, structure, as well compliance with publication norms. The editors may return articles that do not meet the minimum standards set forth by the journal.
A specific form has been created for the submission of evaluations and a computerized control system has been installed to add entries and follow up articles through their several stages (evaluation, acceptance, modification, or refusal). At least two members from the peer-review board or evaluators ad hoc analyze the manuscripts and may turn them down on grounds of originality or focus, writing clarity, or adequacy of bibliographical references. The evaluators may suggest modifications. The editorial board is responsible for evaluating the pertinence or non-pertinence of the article publication as it takes into consideration, when necessary, the journal's thematic program.
As to authors, the journal Varia Historia requires specification of their institutional affiliation and academic rank. The author should hold at least a Master's degree. The journal does not publish manuscripts from students in the graduate program and limits the number of publications by professors from the department.
