Organizationand preparation of the manuscript
1. Organize the article in TITLE, ABSTRACT, RESUMO, INTRODUCTION, MATERIALS AND METHODS, RESULTS, DISCUSSION, CONCLUSION(S) (the last three preferably as separate chapters), Acknowledgements, Conflict of interest statement, and REFERENCES:
a. The TITLE should be concise and indicate the content of the article; inform details of scientific identification in the MATERIALS AND METHODS.
b. Names of authors with several first and family names should be shortened, e.g., simplify Claudio Severo Lombardo de Barros to Claudio S.L. Barros or Barros C.S.L. The Corresponding Author should be one who guarantees contact with the Editorial Board of PVB. Elevate once more the asterisks for the call to the footnotes, so they appear larger.
c. The Heading of the ABSTRACT should contain the shortened and inverted names of the authors, the year, the title [in brakes when translated], and the postal address of the laboratory or institution where the main part of the research was done (Always compare the authors of the paper and their listing in the Heading of the Abstract to avoid discrepancies).
d. The footnote of the first page should contain the complete professional address of each Author (in the language of the Author's country where to correspondence could be posted, Portuguese, Spanish, English, etc.) as well as the underlined e-mail of the corresponding Author.
e. The ABSTRACT should be a well-explained version of the Portuguese RESUMO, followed by "INDEX TERMS," which should include terms of the title, as they are not only Additional Index Terms.
f. The RESUMO should contain (1) the title [within brackets and in bold type (2) what has been investigated, indicating (2) materials and methods used, (3) the most important results, and (4) the conclusion, followed by "TERMOS DE INDEXAÇÃO" (which also include words of the title, as they are not only Additional Index Terms).
g. The INTRODUCTION must be short, with citation of the specific literature, followed by the research's objective.
h. In MATERIALS AND METHODS, provide all data necessary to repeat the study.
i. In RESULTS presented the data obtained in a concise form.
j. In DISCUSSION, confront the results with the literature. Avoid mentioning research development or future planning to avoid the journal's commitment to publish the results.
k. Base the CONCLUSIONS only on your results.
l. Do not mention Acknowledgements in the text or footnotes, but after CONCLUSIONS.
m. State any conflict of interest or "none" if t is the case.
n. The REFERENCES should include all citations consulted and presented chronologically in the text. Write the list of References in alphabetical and chronological order, beginning with the first author's family name, followed by all other authors of the respective reference, in high and low case letters. Each Author divided only by a comma, followed by the year, title, and the data of the publication (extensively in case of doubt about abbreviation), according to www.pvb.com.br.
2. The style of the journal has to be met as follows
a. Font Cambria at 10 pitch, simple space between lines; page format A4, with 2cm margins (superior, inferior, left and right), text in one column justified. Place Figure captions below the list of Reference List; do not repeat the captions along with the images of the Figures. Submit Figures and Tables separately.
b. ABSTRACT and RESUMO are written in only one paragraph and should not contain references.
c. The articles should be concise and, Palicourea marcgravii) at the beginning of each chapter (Title, Abstract, Resumo, Introduction, etc.) when they appear for the first time, followed with the abbreviation of the genus (p.ex. P. marcgravii).
d. The scientific names should be presented in full (p.ex. Palicourea marcgravii) at the beginning of each chapter (Title, Abstract, Resumo, Introduction, etc.) when they appear for the first time, followed with abbreviation of the genus (p.ex. P. marcgravii).
e. In the Title of Tables and Figure captions, write the scientific names in full.
f. In the text, calls to footnotes are given in Arabic numbers, in crescent order through the whole paper, without using "Insert final note" of Word. Note: Don't use spaces between numbers and their units to avoid separate them into two lines (p.ex.: 100ppm, 10mm, 50cm, 18x10cm, P<0.05. The abbreviation for the number is “nº” and not “no”; for degree Celsius “oC” and not “ºC”.
g. Tables and Figures should be cited in the text with their respective numbers in crescent order.
h. Abbreviations of institutions, when presented for the first time, should be put within parentheses after the institution's full name.
i. Citations of the literature in the text are given by "author and year" (p.ex. Caldas 2005). Cite papers with two authors busing the two names (p.ex. Pedroso & Pimentel 2013.) Cite papers with more than two authors in the text by the first Author's name followed by "et al." and the year (p.ex. Brito et al. 2015). If two articles' citation is identical, make the distinction by adding small letters after the year of publication (p.ex. Barros 2017a, 2017b). The citation order in the text should be chronological (p.ex. Barbosa et al. 2003, Armién et al. 2004).
j. Consult the full text of all cited articles; if not possible, cite the original reference in the manuscript text as, p.ex., Bancroft (1921); and then, in the List of References, it should appear as Bancroft 1921. .......... title. ... journal …. (Apud Suvarna & Layton 2013). Also, include this in-full-consulted reference in the List of References.
k. The use of "personal communication" and "unpublished data" should be exceptional and cited in the text as Author and Year (Barbosa 2016), and in the List of References: Barbosa 2016. Personal Communication (Universidade Federal do Pará, campus Castanhal, Brazil).
l. Figure captions (p.ex. "Fig.3. ………..") should be sufficiently informative for understanding (because Figures are independent of the text).
m. Title of Tables should be written in bold, and the Heading (titles of the columns) should be in clear (not bold), written in high and low case letters, and separated by two long horizontal lines. There are no vertical lines and no grey bottom; exceptionally can exist horizontal lines. The calls for footnotes should be in small letters or other signs, but not in Arabic numbers. Tables should be submitted in Word (not as images) to allow corrections according to the journal's style.
n. Submit complex data should as graphics (but referred to as Figures) in 2D without grey bottom and horizontal lines. Write graphics, including text, with Cambria at 10 pitch.
3. Figure presentation
a. Format and dimension. Format and Dimension. Images must be in TIFF format, RGB channel, 85mm long, and 300 dpi resolution (pixel/inch) resolution for color and black & white figures (graphics and maps).
b. Numbering. The TIFF files of the figures must be named and identified separately by numbers in the order in which they are cited in the text (Fig.1, Fig.2, Fig.3...). Do not use letters (Fig.1A, 1B, 1C....) to identify the figures.
c. Identification of structures. If it is necessary to highlight specific structures within the image, use font "Cambria 8 points", black or white, or black or white arrows depending on the background of the figure.
c. Grouping of figures. Figures can be grouped on boards. Make sure all figures are named sequentially. All figures that will compose the board must be sent separately and, preferably, have the same dimensions. If necessary, a sketch with the layout can be suggested, however the final grouping will be done by the image editor.
d. Identification of structures. If it is necessary to highlight specific structures within the image, use font “Cambria 8 point”, black or white; or discrete black or white arrows contrasting on the background of the figure.
e. Micrographs. Scale bars are not mandatory.
f. Figure legends. Each figure must have a self-explanatory legend. It should contain what is in the image, followed by additional information. Example of figure legend format:
g. Subtitles. Each figure must have a self-explanatory legend. It should describe what is seen in the image and explain any abbreviations or symbols used. Example of caption format: “Fig.1. Description of the image. Diagnosis, organ or tissue, animal species, case number. Histochemical staining method (HE, PAS, etc.) or immunohistochemical (S100, Ki67, Vimentin, etc...)”. When describing immunohistochemistry results, use the term "immunolabeling" instead of "staining" or "positive." Indicate where "immunolabeling" occurred (nuclear, cytoplasmic, and membranous) and to what extent. Finally, the objective lens used in micrographs, must be indicated (obj.10x, obj.20x, obj.40x, etc...). Figure legend must appear in the main manuscript file, after the References.
4. All references cited in the text should be included in the List of References. Before submitting the paper, discrepancies have to be corrected by the Author. The system ScholarOne blocks automatically if such disparities exist).
