ABOUT THE JOURNAL

Brief Background

 

The NERA Journal, created in 1998, is a publication of the Center for Studies, Research, and Projects on Agrarian Reform (NERA), affiliated with the Department of Geography and the Postgraduate Program in Geography of the College of Science and Technology (FCT) at São Paulo State University (UNESP), Presidente Prudente campus. It is a free, online, continuously published periodical, with an editorial focus on themes related to the agrarian question, land struggle, agrarian reform, socioterritorial movements, peasantry, agribusiness, agriculture, public policies, countryside education, rural-urban relationship, gender, labor and agroecology. The journal publishes original articles in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English.

Since 2015, NERA Journal has been undergoing a process of internationalization. With this in mind, international researchers have been included in the editorial board, such as Antonio Augusto Rossotto Ioris from Cardiff University, Hannah Wittman from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Wendy Wolford from Cornell University. The same applies to the scientific board, currently composed of researchers from Latin America, North America and Europe. In addition to international reviewers, it is important to highlight that, in the case of national reviewers, NERA Journal values regional and gender diversity in the composition of the board. Article evaluation forms are constantly updated to ensure the best possible evaluation of submissions to the journal.

In recent years, NERA Journal has also increased the number of articles published in other languages, particularly in English, in addition to expanding the dissemination of these works on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

The editorial team of NERA Journal has been actively participating in geography editor forums since 2015 (organized within the scope of the National Association of Postgraduate Studies and Research in Geography - ANPEGE) and at UNESP since 2017, with the aim of enhancing the editorial guidelines of the journal. Since 2020 the journal has been affiliated with the Brazilian Association of Scientific Editors (ABEC). Furthermore, since 2021, Digital Object Identifier (DOI) has been assigned to all published articles. Since 2018 NERA Journal has been competing in calls for proposals from the Vice-Presidency for Research (PROPe) with the aim of obtaining funding for DOI and article translation.

In 2017, NERA Journal was classified by QUALIS CAPES (2013-2016 quadrennium) as A2, and in 2022 (2017-2020 quadrennium), as A1.

 

 

Open Science Compliance

 

The NERA Journal is an Open Access journal, which determines that the author owns the copyright and has permission to place copies of the article in other repositories. It also corresponds to the condition in which the copyright holder of a Academic work grants use rights to others with an open license, allowing immediate free access to the work and allowing any user to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of articles, crawl them for indexing , transmit it as data to software or use it for any other lawful purpose. The NERA Journal uses the Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 Attribution 4.0 International. The NERA Journal offers all its published content free of charge to be browsed, downloaded and distributed. The NERA Journal follows the SciELO Brasil Open Science Compliance Form.

 

 

Ethics in Publication

 

The NERA Journal operates in accordance with the ethical principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Code of Ethics American Educational Research Association, the Code of Good Scientific Practices of the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the Council of Science Editors (CSE) regarding publication.

In order to promote research integrity, strengthen transparency in the process, and uphold ethical standards, all material submitted and published in NERA Journal must adhere to the Guidelines for Best Practices to Strengthen Ethics in Scientific Publishing and the Open Science Compliance Form.

The NERA Journal adopts the definition of misconduct as outlined by the Office Research Integrity (ORI), which consists of: i) Plagiarism: the appropriation of ideas, processes, results, or words of another person without proper credit. Self-plagiarism should also be avoided; ii) Falsification: manipulating materials, equipment, or research processes, omitting data or results, so that the research is not accurately represented in the research record; iii) Fabrication: inventing data or results, whether through recording or reporting.

These misconducts result in ethical violations, leading to works based on the presentation of falsified data, data manipulation, procedures, and results, as well as the improper appropriation of third-party ideas without proper recognition. Until February 2024, all manuscripts submitted to NERA Journal were checked using the plagiarism detection software "Plagius". Starting from March 2024, submitted files are checked using "iThenticate". Manuscripts with detected plagiarism are automatically rejected, and authors are notified. NERA Journal understands that good research practices and ethics also involve the evaluation process and therefore has guidelines for scientific assessment. Among the main elements are: conflicts of interest; non-disclosure of the manuscript to third parties; and the political importance of the assessment.

Manuscripts submitted to NERA Journal cannot be submitted to any other journal while under review. The practice of submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal is considered duplicate publication. The practice of improperly dividing study results into more than one article is understood as redundant publication and, if detected, results in the rejection of the article. Such actions constitute ethical violations.

If any research misconduct or unethical behavior is detected by the authors, the submission will be automatically archived. In cases of reports of research misconduct or unethical behavior by authors in already published manuscripts, the report will be internally investigated, and the manuscript will be removed from the system.

 

 

Focus and Scope

 

The NERA Journal focuses on publishing original articles that are the result of research on topics related to agrarian question (such as land struggle, agrarian reform, socioterritorial movements, peasantry, agribusiness, agriculture, public policies, countryside education, rural-urban relationship, gender, labor and agroecology). The aim is to contribute to knowledge construction through scientific communication and facilitate conditions for debate within Agrarian Geography. The NERA Journal publishes original articles resulting from research and critical reviews of books related to agrarian question. Authors are required to declare that their manuscript is unpublished and is not being submitted or under review elsewhere.

 

 

Digital Preservation

 

The NERA Journal follows the standards defined in the Digital Preservation Policy program of the SciELO Program.

EDITORIAL POLICY

 

Preprints

 

Authors are encouraged to preprint the articles submitted for evaluation on reliable preprint servers. A preprint is a manuscript ready for submission to a journal and deposited on reliable preprint servers before or in parallel with journal submission. This practice, along with continuous publication, serves as mechanisms to expedite research communication. In this case, authors should contact the editors of Revista NERA before manuscript submission for further information on the process and to sign the Open Science Compliance Form, available here. We emphasize that the manuscript should only be published after evaluation by the scientific board of Revista NERA.

 

 

Peer Review Process

 

Manuscripts submitted to Revista NERA undergo an initial desk review before being forwarded for scientific evaluation. Manuscripts are automatically archived when: i) they are not suitable for Revista NERA's scope; ii) they are not formatted according to the author guidelines; iii) they do not comply with Revista NERA's editorial policies (including absence of individual contribution statement and plagiarism); iv) they lack clear objectives and methodological procedures; v) they do not represent research findings.

Starting from November 2022, Revista NERA has adopted the informed peer review model, in which manuscripts will be published with the identification of the associate editor responsible for the editorial process of the article. All received manuscripts are sent to two members of the scientific board for evaluation. Reviewers do not have access to the authors' identities, and vice versa. In case of discrepant editorial decisions, the manuscript is forwarded for a third evaluation.

 

 

Open Data

 

The NERA Journal encourages authors to submit, whenever possible, databases and other materials for dissemination, serving as resources for further research. All tables, images, maps, and other graphic elements should be submitted as supplementary documents. Revista NERA follows the guidelines established within the framework of the Guide for promoting openness, transparency, and reproducibility of research published by SciELO journals. Additionally, we recommend the list of repositories for depositing research data recommended by SciELO Brazil.

 

 

Fees

 

The NERA Journal does not charge any fees for submission processing (submission fees, editorial processing fees, Article Processing Charges (APCs), or page fees), nor for the processes of review, publication, distribution, or download.

 

 

Ethics and Misconduct, Correction and Retraction Policy

 

The NERA Journal operates in accordance with the ethical principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Code of Ethics American Educational Research Association, the Code of Good Scientific Practices of the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), and the Council of Science Editors (CSE) regarding publication.

To promote research integrity, strengthen transparency in the process, and ensure the highest ethical standards, all material submitted and published in NERA Journal must adhere to the Guidelines for Good Practices to Strengthen Ethics in Scientific Publishing and the Open Science Compliance Form.

The NERA Journal adopts the definition of misconduct as outlined by the Office of Research Integrity (ORI), which includes: i) Plagiarism: the appropriation of ideas, processes, results, or words of another person without proper credit. Self-plagiarism should also be avoided; ii) Falsification: manipulating materials, equipment, or research processes, omitting data or results, so that the research is not accurately represented in the research record; iii) Fabrication: inventing data or results, whether through recording or reporting.

These misconducts result in ethical violations, leading to works based on the presentation of falsified data, data manipulation, procedures, and results, as well as the improper appropriation of ideas from third parties without proper recognition. Until February 2024, all manuscripts submitted to NERA Journal were checked for similarity using the "Plagius" software during the desk review process. Starting from March 2024, NERA Journal began using "iThenticate". Manuscripts with identified plagiarism are automatically rejected, and authors are notified. NERA Journal does not have a defined similarity rate considered acceptable, as the editorial board believes that each submitted manuscript should be individually assessed to determine the nature of the similarity.

The NERA Journal understands that good research practices and ethics also involve the evaluation process, and therefore, it has guidelines for scientific evaluation. Among the key elements are: conflicts of interest; non-disclosure of the manuscript to third parties; and the political significance of the review.

Manuscripts submitted to NERA Journal cannot be submitted to any other journal while under review. The practice of submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal is considered duplicate publication. The practice of inadequately dividing study results into more than one article is understood as redundant publication and, if detected, results in the rejection of the article. Such actions constitute ethical violations.

If any research misconduct or unethical behavior is detected by the authors during the evaluation stage, the submission will be automatically archived.

In cases of reports of research misconduct or unethical behavior by authors in already published manuscripts, the report will be internally investigated, and if confirmed, the manuscript must be retracted by the authors. NERA Journal recommends reading the Guide for the registration and publication of retractions.

 

 

Policy on Conflict of Interest

 

Conflicts of interest can be of a personal, commercial, political, academic, or financial nature. Conflicts of interest may arise among authors, reviewers, or editors. Authors must disclose any and all conflicts of interest that have arisen during the development of the submission. Additionally, upon manuscript submission, authors are responsible for acknowledging and disclosing financial or other conflicts that may have influenced the work. If there is, even potentially, a conflict of interest, the author(s) must disclose it in a separate document signed and attached to the submission platform. For more information, see: Disclosure of Financial and Non-Financial Relationships and Activities, and Conflicts of Interest. The scientific board is instructed to disclose any and all conflicts of interest before accepting the task of scientific evaluation.

 

 

Adoption of similarity software

 

Until February 2024, all manuscripts submitted to NERA Journal were checked for similarity using the "Plagius" plagiarism detection software. Starting from March 2024, NERA Journal began utilizing the services of "iThenticate". Manuscripts with identified plagiarism are automatically rejected, and authors are notified.

All submitted manuscripts are checked for plagiarism using plagiarism detection software during the desk review stage (initial evaluation) before being forwarded to the scientific board. NERA Journal does not have a defined similarity rate considered acceptable, as the editorial board believes that each submitted manuscript should be individually assessed to determine the nature of the similarity.

 

 

Gender and Sex Issues

 

The editorial team of NERA Journal, as well as the authors publishing in the journal, must always adhere to the guidelines on Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER). The SAGER guidelines encompass a set of directives that guide the reporting of information on sex and gender in the study design, data analysis, and in the results and interpretation of findings. Additionally, NERA Journal observes a gender equity policy in the formation of its editorial board.

INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

 

Types of Documents Accepted

 

The NERA Journal publishes original articles resulting from research and critical reviews of books related to agrarian questions. The authors are required to declare that their manuscript is unpublished and is not being submitted or undergoing evaluation in another journal. Authors are encouraged to preprint submitted articles for evaluation on reliable preprint servers. In this case, authors should contact the editors of the NERA Journal before manuscript submission for further information on the process and signing of the Open Science Compliance Form, available here. We emphasize that the manuscript should only be published after evaluation by the scientific board of the NERA Journal.

 

 

Authors' Contribution

 

In articles with more than one author, it is necessary to attach as a supplementary document the individual contribution statement. All authors must participate in the discussion of the results and in the review and approval of the final version of the work. The NERA Journal recommends that authors consult the CRediT Taxonomy. Manuscripts without the document will be automatically archived.

 

 

Manuscript Preparation

 

Authors should provide, at the time of submission (metadata), the title of the research from which the manuscript originates. After the scientific evaluation process, the research title should be inserted in the final version of the manuscript.

 

 

Article Submission Format

 

Title: Título (and subtitle, if applicable): should be centered, in Arial 14 bold font, with only the first letter of the first word capitalized.

English Title: Title (and subtitle, if applicable): should be centered, in Arial 12 bold font, with only the first letter of the first word capitalized.

All illustrations, graphs, figures, photographs, maps, charts, and tables should be submitted along with the submission as supplementary documents and in their original format. In the case of images and maps, they should be submitted in files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Systematic and/or location maps of the study area should have a graphic scale, legend, coordinates, and indication of the projection used. Thematic maps should have at least orientation and a graphic scale. Additionally, if possible, we recommend that thematic maps also include coordinates and indicate the geographic projection used. The NERA Journal strongly recommends the use of other forms of language in the texts, especially cartography. Charts and tables should not have colored rows and columns.
