Scope and policy
The mission of RAE-Revista de Administração de Empresas (Journal of Business Management) is to encourage the production and dissemination of knowledge about Business Administration
RAE is interested in publishing theoretical development articles, empirical studies and essays. The Journal accepts contributions from Brazil and abroad in the fields of Business Administration. We encourage a wide range of approaches and views. As a journal with a more general approach to the area we cover a broad spectrum of sub-fields of knowledge, views and issues. The public reader is comprised of academic body – professors, researchers and students – as well as a significant selection from the business community. Therefore, they represent an audience interested in sound analytical content and consistency.
Articles should be sent to RAE through ScholarOne, an online submission and paper management system which we operate in partnership with SciELO: http://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/rae-scielo.
Articles can be submitted in Portuguese, English or Spanish, observing the correct format, text positioning and style, as well as the standardization norms specific to the section the work falls into. It is essential to carefully read the RAE-publications Guidelines, especially the Format and Author sections, for an efficient preparation of the article.
The articles published in RAE are bilingual: Portuguese/English or Spanish/English. After approval, it is the authors’ responsibility to provide the English version when the text is submitted in Portuguese or Spanish.
Authors can only submit one article at a time (this rule also applies to calls for papers), i.e., during the time an article is being evaluated, its authors cannot submit another one, whether as the main author or a co-author. If the article is rejected in one of the steps of the process, the authors may submit the same article, provided it has been returned in the "reject & resubmit" status, or submit a new article.
RAE does not charge any fees for submission and publication of articles (APC-Author Processing Charge).
RAE does not accept articles whose underlying data have been published already, prioritizing a blind peer review.
Originality and exclusivity
Articles submitted for publication to RAE must be previously unpublished and cannot be undergoing a process of consideration by any other publication. Articles previously published in preprint repositories, or other forms of publication that may change the originality of the manuscript, are not accepted. It should be emphasized that works presented at Scientific Conferences are still considered original.
Articles submitted to the RAE first pass through a preliminary triage in terms of format (to see whether they meet expected norms and formats) and then pass through a system that detects similarities. They are then evaluated in a triple-blind system, performed in four stages:
Preparation for publication
After an article is approved, it is submitted for editing and revised for any spelling and grammar mistakes. The Editorial Office sends the final version to the authors for their approval and any updates, such as institutional affiliations.
RAE is going to publish articles in continuous flow maintaining the bimonthly periodicity.
RAE commits itself to contributing to the protection of authors’ intellectual property rights. This is why it:
