  • All communication between those involved in the evaluation and publication processes (authors, reviewers, and editors) will be done by electronic means only. The author responsible for the article will be automatically informed by e-mail of any change in its status. 
  • Photographs, drawings, and figures must be inserted into the text and, when requested by the editorial team, must also be sent separately, in a JPG file, in high quality (minimum 300dpi), zipped, inserted in "Figure or Image" (Step 2).
  • It is the sole responsibility of the person submitting the article to make sure that each author is aware and agrees with the inclusion of his or her name in the submitted text. 
  • ABMVZ will automatically notify each of the registered authors, via the Electronic System, of their participation in the article. If one of the registered authors does not agree, in writing, to participate as an author, the article will be considered as "Withdrawn" by one of the authors and its processing will be terminated. Omission cases will be analyzed by the Editor-in-Chief for deliberation.
  • The period for adaptation to the ABMVZ Guidelines is 30 days and, after this period, the article will be considered as "Withdrawal by the author".
  • ABMVZ encourages authors to deposit and share research data that support the publication of the article in a Preprint repository. Research data refers to any and all observations, experimental notes, reports, and other products that make it possible to generate the results of the research. An example of a repository is Scielo Data
  • The author responsible for submitting an article needs to inform about the deposit in a Preprints server and obligatorily forward the corresponding DOI to ABMVZ. The manuscript must inform the license that authorizes sharing the material in any medium or format (Creative Commons - CC-BY). Scielo Preprint and Emerging Researcher Information are examples of national servers and Medrxiv is an international server.
  • It is the responsibility of the author of an article accepted for publication to inform the Preprints server of the link to the ABMVZ publication.
  • Evaluators' opinions may eventually be published, if there is interest from the ABMVZ Editorial Board, always with the agreement of the authors and the evaluators.

Use horizontal lines to separate headings and at the end of the table. The table title initially receives the word Table, followed by the order number in Arabic numerals and period (e.g.: Table 1.). In the text, the table should be referred to as Tab followed by a period and the order number (e.g.: Tab. 1), even when referring to several tables (e.g.: Tab. 1, 2 and 3).
