Instructions to authors

 

Scope and Editorial Policies

  The scope of the Brazilian Journal of Nephrology (BJN) (Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia) is to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge and professional practice in Nephrology through the publication of relevant original studies in the areas of basic and clinical research.

The online journal is published in Portuguese and English and has open access under the Creative Commons attribution license BY (http:///creativecommons.org/licences).

The submission is free of charge. If accepted for publication, the copyright of the manuscript is automatically transferred to the Brazilian Society of Nephrology (Sociedade Brasileira de Nefrologia). The content of manuscripts must not have been previously published or submitted to other journals. To publish a part or the whole content in another journal, written approval from the editors is required. The content and statements of manuscripts are the authors’ responsibility.
 

 

Review Process

  The selection of manuscripts for publication is based on the originality, relevance of the topic, and quality of the scientific methodology as well as compliance to the journal regulations. Manuscripts submitted with a format other than that described in this document might be returned.

Submitted manuscripts undergo a preliminary evaluation carried out by up to two members of the editorial team. Manuscripts approved by the editorial team are sent to external experts. Based on the comments and recommendations of the external reviewers and the Associate Editor, the Editor-in-Chief makes the decision to: 1) allow the authors to review and resubmit the manuscript - Minor or Major Revision; or 2) reject and no longer consider the manuscript.

To submit the revised version of the manuscript, authors will be given 15 days for a minor review and 30 days for a major review.

The revised manuscripts are resubmitted to external reviewers, at the discretion of the Associate Editor. Upon receiving the Associate Editor's recommendations and external reviewers' comments, the Editor-in-Chief may accept, request further revisions, or reject the manuscript. It is worth noting that not all revised manuscripts will be accepted.

For the evaluation of manuscripts, the journal adopts the single-blind peer-review modality. Of the manuscripts submitted to the BJN, about a third are approved for publication.
 

 

Preprint

  The Brazilian Journal of Nephrology accepts manuscript submissions previously deposited in preprint repositories such as medRxic (https: // www. Medrxiv.org/). For the submission of these manuscripts, it is necessary that the authors indicate the deposit data in the Cover Letter.  

 

Legal and Ethical Considerations

  The BJN follows the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), entitled (http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/).

The journal follows the code of ethical conduct in publication, recommended by the Committee on Publication Ethics - COPE (http://publicationethics.org).
 

AUTHORSHIP

All authors should have had enough participation in the drafting of the manuscript to assume responsibility for its content. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends that authorship be based on the following criteria:

  • Substantial contributions to the design or development of the study;
  • Participation in the collection, analysis and interpretation of the data;
  • Participation in the writing of the article or in its critical revision;
  • Approval of the final version.

The full ICMJE recommendations are available at: http://www.icmje.org/recommendations/.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

A reliable peer review process and consequent credibility of published articles depend in part on how conflicts of interest are handled during writing, peer review, and editorial processes.

Conflict of interest occurs when authors (or the author's institution), reviewers, or editors have financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) their actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties).

The effect of such relationships can vary from negligible to having great potential to influence judgment; however, not all relationships are true conflicts of interest.
The potential for conflict of interest should be assessed based on the personal perception that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancy, stock ownership, payments, and expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and are the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, authors, and science itself. However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition, and intellectual passion.

BJN's conflict of interest policy requires authors, reviewers, and editors to disclose any financial or other interest (commitment) that could be construed as loss in an actual, potential, or perceived conflict.

Authors are required to declare in the Cover Letter any relationship or financial commitment in the last 36 months. Reviewers must declare the conflict of interest in the manuscript evaluation form, available on the ScholarOne System.

INFORMED CONSENT 

Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Patient identification, including name, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in the text, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent with such purpose requires that the identifiable patient sees the manuscript before it is submitted. Authors should identify individuals who provided writing assistance and disclose the funding source for this assistance. 
Identifications should be provided if they are essential. Complete anonymity might be difficult; however, informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note. 
The published article should inform when the informed consent was obtained.

ETHICAL PRINCIPALS

When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2013 (https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review board explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should indicate whether the institutional and national guidelines for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.

 

 

Manuscripts Submission

 

Manuscripts are submitted online to the BJN at: https://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/jbn-scielo.

The manuscripts may be submitted in Portuguese and/or English, and simultaneous submission, in part or in full, to other journals is not allowed. The BJN considers unethical the duplicate or partial publication of the same research. Tools for locating text similarity are used by the journal to detect plagiarism. In case plagiarism is detected, the BJN follows the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors do Committee on Publication Ethics - COPE (http://publicationethics.org/).

All authors must associate the ORCID registration number with their profile in the submission system (https://orcid.org/).

The submission of a manuscript to BJN must be accompanied by the following documents (via system - Step 5: Details & Comments):

  • Cover letter, signed by all authors, according to previously defined model (Download). If the signature of an author is missing, it will be interpreted as his or hers disinterest in or disapproval of the publication, and the name will be, therefore, excluded from the authors list;
  • Copy of the letter of approval from the Ethics Committee of the institution that approved the study - when referring to interventions (diagnostic or therapeutic) in human beings;
  • Main document (See Preparation of Manuscripts).
 

Language

  Manuscripts are written in Portuguese and/or English can be submitted to BJN, but English submissions are preferred. Brazilian authors are encouraged to submit two versions, one in each language.

For manuscripts submitted in Portuguese, authors must also provide title, keywords, abstract, tables, figures, and legends in English. In case of approval, the manuscripts will be translated into English and submitted to the authors' evaluation, at the time of proof review, together with the respective Portuguese versions.

For manuscripts submitted in English, authors are not required to provide title, descriptors, abstract, and captions of tables and illustrations in Portuguese. If approved for publication, manuscripts submitted in English will be translated into Portuguese, and the translated version will be submitted to the authors' evaluation at the time of the proof review.
