Scope and Policy


The journal Estudos Históricos aims to publish original works, with a historical perspective, of researchers from the national and international academic community in the areas of History, Social Sciences and similar.

The journal will only accept unpublished works of doctors and doctoral students in the form of articles and bibliographic essays. It is editors’ responsibility to evaluate the manuscripts in advance, in order to identify any improper conduct related to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, conferring previous publications of authorship and third parties on the same subject. When the improper conduct is identified, Estudos Históricos will deny the evaluation of the article, informing the decision to those involved.

All articles submitted to the Editors will be submitted to two or more referees to issue their evaluation. Secrecy will be maintained concerning the identity of both the referees and the authors. The opinions may recommend: a) full acceptance of the text; b) the complete refusal; c) acceptance with minor modifications; d) acceptance with significant modifications, and the text, in the latter two cases, is sent back to the author for the changes.

The final decision on the publication of the manuscript will always be the Editors’, who value the geographical distribution of the authors to be published. The Editors reserve the right to request also changes in the original papers. The changes concerning standardization and writing, introduced by the Editors themselves, will always aim at maintaining the homogeneity and quality of the journal, while respecting the style and opinions of the authors. The texts in English and Spanish, when accepted by the Editors, will be published in their original language and, whenever possible, will be translated into Portuguese.

Each article submitted to the journal should be accompanied by a list of up to six keywords that identify the main topics and a summary in Portuguese, with English and Spanish versions, with a maximum of 100 words, clearly stating the purposes, methods used and the main conclusions of the study.

If the article results from research sponsored by a funding agency, it should be mentioned.

The articles published in the journal may also be available in different media and on the Internet.

The bibliographic essays should be structured around a critical analysis of relevant national and/or international bibliography produced in the last five years and related to the specific issue of the journal number.

After the publication of an article in Estudos Históricos, the author will be subject to a two-year period without being able to submit a new article proposal. The authors who collaborate as referees may not submit an article to the same issue of the Journal to which they contributed.
