About the journal

 

BASIC INFORMATION

 

Interface – Comunicacao, Saude, Educacao is an open, interdisciplinary, on-line journal published by Unesp (Health Education and Communication Laboratory - Public Health Department, School of Medicine of Botucatu).
It focuses on Education and Communication in health practices, education of health professionals (both university-based and inservice education) and Collective Health in its articulation with Philosophy, Arts and the Social and Human Sciences. Critical and innovative approaches and qualitative research are prioritized.

It was launched in August 1997 with the aim of stimulating debate and disseminating knowledge about the contemporary issues that challenge the field of Health and its articulation with Communication and Education.

Interface is a publication with international dissemination. It has been receiving an increasing number of contributions from authors in different countries, mainly Portugal, Spain, Latin American and Caribbean countries. To amplify this collaboration, the journal currently has diverse assistant editors from these regions.

Interface has rigorously maintained its periodicity without delays since its creation, in 1997, as a biannual journal. From 2004 to 2007 it was published three times per year and from 2008 to 2018  it became a quarterly journal.

Currently Interface adopts the continuous publication of its articles, with a DOI number, in a single volume per year, in an uninterrupted manner. In the electronic Summary of the journal, in SciELO and in its website, only the section to which the article was submitted is indicated.

Interface follows the principles of ethics in scientific publications that are contained in the code of conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics.

The Journal’s abbreviated title is Interface (Botucatu). This title must be used in bibliographies, footnotes, captions and references.

It publishes only original texts that have never been published elsewhere, in the form of free demand articles, analytical articles and/or essays, reviews of current themes, critical reviews, experience reports, debates, interviews, and also letters and notes about events and matters of interest. The Journal also publishes relevant and / or emerging topics, developed by invited authors, experts in the subject. Translations of texts published in another language are not accepted.

The submitted manuscripts have their scientific merit evaluated by peers considering the following criteria: theme originality and relevance, scientific rigor and theoretical and methodological consistency. Referees are selected among the Editorial Board’s members or ad hoc consultants, researchers in the scope of work area, from different regions, and education and/or research institutions. The editors reserve the right to make changes and / or cuts in the received originals to conform them to the norms of the journal, maintaining style and content.

Interface follows the principles of ethics in scientific publications that are contained in the code of conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), http://publicationethics.org , and uses the Turnitin system (licensed by Unesp) to identify plagiarism.

8 In the item Contribution to Current Literature, the author must answer the following question:
What does your text add to what has already been published in the national and international literature?

Note
. In this brief description, it is necessary to address the specificity of the research results and of the review or experience in the scenario of national and international literature about the matter, highlighting the original nature of the work and the dialogue with international literature. Manuscripts that focus on issues of local interest only and present essentially descriptive approaches to the problem are not this journal’s priority and should be avoided.

9 The author can indicate one referee (from Brazil or abroad) to evaluate his/her work, provided that they do not belong to the same institution as the manuscript’s author(s). If it is necessary, he/she should also inform about researchers with whom there may be conflicts of interest arising from the article.

 

 

EVALUATION OF MANUSCRIPTS AND PUBLICATION OF APPROVED MANUSCRIPTS

 

 Interface adopts the strict editorial policy of scientific merit evaluation by peers conducted in two stages: pre-evaluation and peer review.

Pre-evaluation: every manuscript submitted to Interface undergoes an initial screening to check if it follows the journal’s areas and if it complies with the editorial standards, and to identify missing documents in the submission process, including identifying plagiarism and self-plagiarism. Submission is only confirmed if all the journal’s standards are met and when all requested documents are uploaded in the system. The initial screening analysis is performed by the editors and associate editors. The texts that advance to peer review are those that:
– meet the minimum requisites of a scientific paper and comply with the journal’s scope;

  • dialogue with the international literature around the theme of the article;
  • present relevance and thematic originality and of results and adequacy of theoretical and methodological approach.

Peer review: the text whose submission is confirmed follows for double-blind peer review and is evaluated by, at least, two referees considering the following criteria: theme originality and relevance, scientific rigor, and theoretical and methodological consistency. Referees are selected among the Editorial Board’s members or ad hoc consultants, researchers in the scope of work area, from different regions, and education and/or research institutions. The material is returned to the author if the referees suggest small changes and/or corrections. In this case, there will be a second round of evaluation of the revised manuscript.

Notes
. In case of divergence of opinions, the text is sent to a third referee for arbitration.
. The Editorial Board (editors and associate editors) is responsible for the final decision about the work’s scientific merit.

Approved article edition: after the article’s approval, the authors receive a correspondence with specific guidelines on sending the final version of the text in order to begin the editing process for article’s publication. These guidelines include:
– updating all the authors’ data, confirming their institutional affiliation or professional education, and the OCID ID, as already indicated in item 3 of SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS;
– final review of the text, including title, keywords, citations and references, and of the abstracts (Portuguese, English and Spanish) by specialized professionals, highlighting the corrections made in this last version in a different font color;
– in case of an article with two or more authors, adding the item Contributors before References in the text’s final version, specifying the individual responsibilities of each one of them in creating the manuscript, as explicitly indicated in item 6 of SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS;
– in case of acknowledgments to people or institutions, inserting them also in the text’s final version, before References, under Acknowledgments.

The approved article’s editing process includes standardization, desktop publishing and review by Interface’s technical team and approval of the final version by the authors.

All approved articles are continuously published in the SciELO collection with a DOI number. 

The authors are responsible for their texts. The texts do not necessarily coincide with the point of view of the journal’s Editorial Board.

Note
. Should they be interested in publishing their manuscript in English, authors must express it and immediately contact the journal’s Office for information on deadlines, costs, contact with accredited professionals, etc. These expenses shall be borne entirely by the authors. Both versions (Portuguese and English) will be published in SciELO Brazil.

 

 

PROCESSING OF MANUSCRIPTS IN OPEN ACCESS

 

Interface is an open-access electronic journal. The international open-access initiative aims at providing universal access to a benefit that should belong to all human beings: knowledge. The production costs of journals under this open-access model require public funding, since they are not financed by readers.
For 19 years, Interface was maintained almost exclusively with public resources. As this fundraising partially covers its costs, the journal has adopted a publication fee for approved manuscripts, in order to ensure regularity, quality and open-access to published articles.
Publication fee
Procedures for paying this fee will be informed by the journal’s office after the article’s approval. This fee will only be charged for approved articles for the following sections: Dossier, Articles, Review and Open Space. 

1 For manuscripts with up to 5,000 words: R$ 800.00
2 For manuscripts with more than 5,000 words: R$ 900.00
This fee amount must be deposited in the following bank account:

Fundação para o Desenvolvimento Médico e Hospitalar 
CNPJ: 46.230.439/0001-01

Banco Santander
Branch: 0039
Checking Account: 13-006625-3
The amount does not include costs of translation of the article into English, if interested. The article’s authors are responsible for bearing this cost.
This fee may vary depending on whether more or less public funds are raised.

 

 

VANCOUVER SYSTEM: citations and references

 

Interface adopts the Vancouver system for the style of citations and references in its manuscripts.

CITATIONS IN THE TEXT 
Citations should be numbered consecutively, according to the order in which they are presented in the text. They should be identified by superscript Arabic numbers.
Example:
According to Teixeira1
According to Schraiber2 ...

Specific cases of citations:
1 Reference with more than two authors: in the body of the text, only the name of the first author should be cited, followed by the expression "et al."

2 Literal citations: These should be inserted in the paragraph between quotation marks (Double quotation marks), and accompanied by the citation page in parentheses, with the point at the end.
Example: 
Starting from this relation, we can affirm that the nature of educational work corresponds to "[...] the act of producing, directly and intentionally, in each singular individual, the humanity produced historically and collectively by all men" 2 (p. 13).

Notes
If the quote comes with double quotation marks in the original text, replace them by the apostrophe or single quotation marks.
Example
"The 'Uniform Requirements' (Vancouver style) are largely based on the style standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), adapted by the NLM” 1 (p. 47).
