LOVISOLO, Hugo Rodolfo. Journal Management: some considerations and suggestions for the debate. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.4, pp.708-714. ISSN 2179-3255.

The author observes the discrepancies between the quantity of articles readings and their qualifications in the evaluation system of CAPES (Qualis). He presents and discusses some practical effects, sometimes unwanted, derived from publications infl uences, operating modes of journals and peers through the SEER system. The author points out the already known risk of publishing more of the same. Then he stresses the entangled relationship between journals, researchers and postgraduate programs evaluation metrics. His goal is to contribute to the discussion of editorial policies in the field of Physical Education, although the questions and criticisms that are raised are also valid in other research field.
