The receiving of the papers is in continuous flow according to order of arrival. The evaluation period may take from one to six months. The deadline for publication can take from 12 to 18 months.
The online journal is open to the entire scientific community through SciELO. To ensure a democratic space in the journal, each author and/or coauthor may publish only one paper per year/issue.

3 The papers must be unpublished (preferably in Portuguese, English or Spanish), and the journal shall be solely responsible for its publication. They must meet the following criteria:
3.5 Reviews should contain no more than two pages and should be written by no more than two authors.

For example, if the journal is being published in 2012, the work must have been published in 2012 or 2011.
4 Acceptance and revision of the texts: the papers received are sent (excluding the name of the authors) to two reviewers belonging to the Advisory Board of the ABPEE who will indicate the acceptance, refusal or reformulations required. In case of opinions contrary to acceptance, the paper will be analyzed by the editors that define or not its publication based on the indications of the opinions. The revision of technical standardization is carried out by the editors.

In the second stage, two reviewers of the advisory board will assess the merits of the paper content. Should one of the reviewers deny the publication, the paper will be submitted to a third reviewer. If two reviewers reject the publication, the paper will be denied.
The Journal adopts the Turnitin software for identification of plagiarism and/or self-plagiarism.
