Title of the article: articles must contain the title in Portuguese, English and Spanish, the first one is the language of the paper; only the first word and proper names should start with a capital letter. On the next line, title translated into English and followed by the Spanish, if the article is in Portuguese. Article written in English must provide translation into Portuguese followed by the Spanish. Article written in Spanish must present English translation, followed by the Portuguese.
Resumo, abstract and resumen: Each one should contain no more than 250 words and present the purpose, approach, methodology, results and conclusions in a single paragraph in the corresponding language, following the same order of languages of the titles.
Palavras-chave, keywords and palabras clave: minimum of 3 and maximum of 5, beginning with a capital letter and separated by a full stop and in the same language as the article.
In the text: this should begin below the items outlined above, without page breaks. The conventional order of a theoretical and empirical scientific article should be an introduction, theoretical and reference framework, methodology, results and analysis, conclusion and references. Theoretical essays should be formatted in coherence with the approach adopted by the author.
Number of submissions: the editorial policy of Cadernos EBAPE.BR limits the number of submissions per author to two per year, irrespective of contribution to the authorship; modified versions of rejected articles are also not eligible for submission.
Number of authors: Since June 2020, the maximum number of authors per article is 4; no alterations to authorship are permitted (inclusion or substitution) after an online submission has been made. Requests to change authorship will result in the article being shelved.
Identification of authors and co-authors: submitted articles should not identify the author or co-authors. If it is possible to identify the author in the text or in the references, the article will be shelved.
The authors should be identified in a separate file containing the title of the work, the full name(s) of the author(s), the institution(s) with which they are connected, the position(s) they hold, an e-mail address and academic background. When a work has been written by more than one author, their names should be listed according to their contribution to the article.
Overlapping publication: the publication of two articles with considerable overlapping is not acceptable, even in different academic journals. Several publications with a single set of data can only be permitted: (a) if it is not possible to write a single article in a maximum of 30 pages; and (b) if the articles have different purposes and approaches. The editor must be informed upon submission if the article is in some form available online.
Originality of the article: articles and reviews submitted should be unpublished elsewhere, either in Brazil or overseas, and should not be under consideration for publication and/or published in any other journal or other media source, except for works presented in Proceedings of conferences.
Articles will only be forwarded for blind review by members of the editorial committee if they fit in these submission rules and have been submitted through the online submission system. The same procedure applies for the submission of book reviews.
Book reviews: are critiques of national or international books and scientific publications or publications of scientific interest in the field of Administration. A review should summarize, analyze, compare and criticize the work in question, thereby constituting a theoretical or scientific contribution to the field. In this sense, a review does not only mention the publication or existence of the work, but should offer some contribution either to the field or theme in question by way of critical analysis.
The first page should contain the title, names of the authors and publishing data of the reviewed work (location, publisher, year of publication, number of pages and ISBN) without identifying the author of the review. The review should be no longer than three pages and should include a scan of the book cover on the last page.
Case Studies & Teaching Cases: the documents must obey the same rules of submission of the journal regarding the minimum and maximum number of words and formatting/standardization. The work should be divided into two parts: one formed by the case itself and the other in which the teaching and/or research notes will be presented.
When an article, book review, and case studies & teaching cases is accepted for publication, the copyright (including translation rights) are ceded by the author(s) to Cadernos EBAPE.BR.

How to get your article published: a brief guideline
How to get your article published: a brief guideline
Considering that standards are high and getting published is not easy, we have set out these few tips on how to get published.
Why should you consider publication?
You have something relevant to say; i.e, your work is innovative and you will contribute to the theory filling a gap, or to building a better society or organization.
Why should you consider Cadernos EBAPE.BR?
Journals are not alike. So make sure that you submit your article to the right one. Thus ask yourself
For instance, Cadernos EBAPE.BR does accept both theoretical essays and empirical research, but, for instance, we are not dedicated to Public Administration. These topics may be used merely as a background for broader discussions.
Furthermore, make sure you have followed our guidelines (word limit, formatting). Should you have a question, go to guidelines or do not hesitate to contact us.
Is my article relevant?
If you are still not sure if your article is relevant; so ask yourself a few questions:
High risk and low risk submissions
Our colleagues at Sage distinguish submissions as high or low risk. They understand that a high risk submission is a conversion of a big report or monograph. Do not misunderstand us, we are looking forward to reading your thesis or dissertation, but be sure that your artcile is not a cut and paste.
An article is also considered high risk:
Said that, what would be considered a low-risk publication?
What should I do to prepare my manuscript?
First, and above all, read the guidelines; furthermore
Conventions of academic writing
"TEACHING CASES – guidelines for submission"
Cadernos EBAPE.BR’s Case Studies & Teaching Cases section aims to promote the production and use of teaching cases in administration, contributing to the dialogue among scientists and technological production, and the application of this teaching and learning methodology in undergraduate and graduate programs in business and public administration.
Teaching cases must present the following basic structure:
(a) Initial description of the context and problem (introducing the characters/actors involved, decision-making context, company situation, etc.);
(b) Background of the company object of the process under analysis (history, sector of activity, main products and/or markets, financial indicators, etc.);
(c) Detailed description of the context and problem;
(d) Conclusion of the case;
(e) Teaching notes and case application.
What happen next?
As all submissions are online, right after submitting your manuscript, you will receive and acknowledgment and reference number. Keep it! You will need this number to follow up on your manuscript.
First, we will check if your manuscript has followed all the guidelines.Then it is forwarded to the Associate Editor and the Editor-in-chief for desk review. There are two possible outcomes: your manuscript can be accepted and forwarded to double blind-review or rejected right away.
Desk reject occurs when the editors identify that the paper does not fit with the journal, in case of non adherence to the conventions of academic writing, poor presentation (grammatical errors, incorrect formatting), weak methods or literature base.
If the article is pre-approved by editors in the desk review, the percentage of similarity will be analyzed using the Crossref Similarity Check software (Anti-Plagiarism System). If the percentage is higher than expected by the editors, the article will be rejected or returned to the author(s), so those parts identified as similar to previous research can be rewritten.
A new similarity check will be carried out if the article is approved for publication.
After the reviewers have analyzed the paper, there are four possible outcomes:
What happens once your paper is accepted?
Once your paper is accepted for publication, it will be forwarded to the production team for processing. You will have to sign a contributor agreement form “Statement of Responsibility and Copyright”.
The article will be added to a waiting list or directed to a specific edition. The article must be revised to meet the language standards and must follow the journal’s formatting rules. Following the journal’s guidelines regarding the language of submission, the authors are responsible for sending translated versions (English, Portuguese, or Spanish), choosing service providers, and paying the related costs. Before being published, a new verification of similarities (anti-plagiarism) will be applied, followed by layout verification and validation by the author(s).
