BARROS, Mauro Virgilio Gomes de; ROMBALDI, Airton José; BORGES, Thiago Terra  and  FLORINDO, Alex Antonio. Brazilian Journal of Physical Activity and Health: experiences and editorial processes. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.4, pp.746-751. ISSN 2179-3255.

In this paper we report our experience as editors of the Brazilian Journal of Physical Activity and Health (RBAFS), particularly from 2007 onwards, when the Journal became the official publication of the Brazilian Society of Physical Activity and Health. In this period, the Journal experienced substantial improvements: it started to be published every other month there was a sharp increase in the number of papers submitted and published; the management of submission and storage was moved to the SEER platform; the Journal was indexed in CrossRef, allowing the attribution of a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number for each article published. Besides, after 2013 the print version was no longer available and only the electronic volumes were published, resulting in ISSN alteration. These improvements now allow the journal to be eligible for indexation in Scielo.
