Evaluation of manuscripts

 

Submissions are welcome year round. All submissions must be made through the online system, irrespective of the section.

Submissions that do not comply with the publication guidelines specified here will be returned. Additionally, articles that are a simple extract from a thesis or dissertation or that have excessive writing errors will be returned to authors.

Submissions accepted will be sent to external peer reviewers. Only those manuscripts that already have been made available as a preprint or whose reviewers and authors choose to make their respective identities known will not undergo double-blind review.

Articles will be evaluated based on originality, methodology (which must include bibliographic and/or documentary research supported by critical analysis based on historiographic methods) and its suitability to the journal’s scope.

Reviewers may request access to data and other materials on which the manuscript is based.

Reviewers may accept, propose improvement changes or reject the manuscript. Based on the reviews, the science editor will accept, request reformulations or reject the manuscript. The modified version may be subject to an additional peer review or be directly accepted or rejected by the science editor. 

Manuscripts submitted to the Interview, Sources, Images and Reviews sections are assessed by the respective section editors and one external reviewer. The final decision is made by the science editor. 

Proposals for dossiers or special issues should be sent to the science editor, following the rules described here. Proposals will be judged based on their academic relevance and the journal's schedule. The journal publishes one dossier and one special issue each year.
 

 

Compliance with best open science practices

 

Any manuscript submitted to História, Ciências, Saúde – Manguinhos must be accompanied by a completed Open Science Compliance Form.

Preprints
To further the open dissemination of knowledge, beginning in 2021 História, Ciências, Saúde – Manguinhos will allow the submission of articles previously published on reliable preprint servers that satisfy academically recognized criteria, such as SciELO Preprints and SocArXiv.  These criteria include: storage of articles that report the results of research, revisions and essays ready for submission to a journal; prior moderation of articles; assignment of a DOI and linking to the final published article.

Research data
During the manuscript submission process, or after its approval, we recommend that the authors, if it is possible in legal and ethical terms, store the data connected with the research in a reliable repository.

The following materials fall under the category of research data: the research proposal; reports submitted to funding agencies; a description of the archives used; tables, figures and statistical information not used in the article; and recordings or transcripts of oral interviews. If the author has already stored the research data in a repository, he or she should mention it in the Open Science Compliance Form. 

Options regarding open peer-review
Beginning in 2021, authors and peer reviewers may choose to reveal their identities during the evaluation process.

The peer reviews of accepted articles may be published with the article when both the author and peer reviewers agree. The open peer review option, in which the peer reviews are published together with the article, is intended to promote constructive criticism, reliability in scientific communication, dialog between researchers and recognition of peer reviewers. 

Acceptance, evaluation and approval of manuscripts do not depend on the choice made by authors or peer reviewers regarding revealing their identity or publication of peer reviews. 

 

Preparing Manuscripts

 

História, Ciências, Saúde – Manguinhos accepts contributions to all sections in Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Manuscripts should be submitted in DOC, DOCX or RTF format.
The text must be formatted in Times New Roman font, size 12, with line spacing 1.5

Manuscripts for all sections must be accompanied by a cover page that states:

  • name of the author;
  • ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) of the author; 
  • institution with which the author is affiliated;
  • position held at the institution;
  • city, state and country of the institution;
  • emailof the author;
  • funding received and acknowledgments.

When there is more than one author, provide the above information for each author. No other text in the manuscript should make identification of the author(s) possible.

Manuscripts for the Reviews section should have a title different than that of the work reviewed and no more than four references. The manuscripts must contain the complete reference, including the number of pages, of the work reviewed. An image of the cover must be provided in a separate file, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, in JPEG, TIFF or PNG format.

Manuscripts should be accompanied by an abstract in the language of the manuscript no more than 110 words long, explaining the objectives, chronological and spacial frameworks of the research, methodology and principal argument of the article.

Authors should provide three to five keywords representative of the contents of the article, in the language of the manuscript. We suggest usingHealth Science Descriptors.

In-text citations should indicate the author, year and page of the citation. All quotations from works in other languages must be translated into the language of the manuscript. Authors may choose to include the original in a note. Quotations of up to five lines should be enclosed in double quotation marks in the main text. Quotations of more than five lines should be single-spaced in a separate, indented paragraph with a 3-cm margin.

Authors should use double quotation marks rather than italics or bold to set off or emphasize terms or expressions. Italics are used only to mark foreign words and the titles of books or periodicals. To highlight sections within a citation, use single quotes.

 Illustrations include tables, figures, prints, graphs, and drawings in general. All illustrations should be provided in files separate from the main text. The suggested insertion location of each illustration, together with its caption and source, must be written in the body of the manuscript. Only four (4) illustrations will be published per article (except for the images section), and must be duly accompanied by authorization for publication.

Each image file should be clearly identified and numbered based on the order in which it appears in the text.

Images should have a minimum actual resolution of 300 dpi (not interpolated). They should be of natural size and saved in JPEG, TIFF, or PNG format with RGB color.

Tables and graphs should be editable. Tables should be in Word or Excel. Graphs and the underlying numerical data should be in Excel.

Rules of zoological and botanical nomenclature should be carefully followed. The same applies to abbreviations and conventions adopted in specialized fields.


Notes should be limited to an absolute minimum. They should be explanatory, numbered using Arabic numerals, and inserted as endnotes using the endnote function of the word processing program. Notes should not be used for referencing cited documents or works.

All works or documents cited in the main text must be listed in a separate section, entitled References, never in a footnote or endnote.

The references list primary and secondary sources together. References should appear in alphabetical order by author’s last name. Works by the same author should be listed in chronological order from most to least recent. When an author has more than one work published the same year, distinguish them by placing a letter immediately after the year, in alphabetical order (for example: 1980a, 1980b).

Authors’ first names should be written in full.

Do not abbreviate journal names.

Titles of books and journals should be italicized. Titles of book chapters and articles should appear between double quotations in the main text, but without any special punctuation in the references.
