About the journal

Basic information

 

Revista Brasileira de Saúde Ocupacional - RBSO - is an open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal edited and published by FUNDACENTRO since 1973, and aims at propagating original unpublished research articles on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) that can contribute to understand and improve work conditions, to prevent injuries and labor illness, as well as supporting discussions and defining public policies related to the theme.

The journal publishes updated and diversified OSH topics, as well as introduces, whenever suitable, systematized contributions on specific themes with the purpose of enriching technical-scientific debates among researchers, educators, legislators, and professionals not only in the OSH field, but also to related areas.

Since 2016, RBSO is no longer published in the format of numbered editions. It has changed to the rolling pass system, maintaining one annual on-line volume with manuscripts published one by one during the year. Special and thematic editions might be printed, besides coming out on-line.

Its abbreviated title is  Rev Bras Saude Ocup, to be used in bibliographies, footnotes, quotations as well as in bibliographical references and strips.

Instructions to authors

1. Scope

 

RBSO publishes original articles with scientific relevance in the field of Occupational Safety & Health (OSH). The journal adopts a multidisciplinary approach and covers several aspects of OSH in the different economic sectors of the formal and informal world of work including: the work and health relationship; conceptual aspects and analyses of occupational accidents; risk analyses; risk management and OSH management systems; epidemiology; etiology of occupational illnesses; exposure to chemicals and toxicology; relationship between the workers’ health and organization and working conditions, and environmental health; OSH education and training; behavior at work and its physiological, psychological and social dimensions; mental health and work; muscle-skeletal disorders, psychological conditions and their relationship to organizational aspects and productive sector restructuring; OSH professions and professional practice; health services organization and occupational safety  in public and private companies; labor regulation and laws; workplace inspection; social, organizational, and political aspects of OSH.

Authors are entirely responsible for the opinions they express in their articles.

 

 

2. Publication periodicity

 

RBSO publishes an annual volume on a continuous publication model (rollingpass). Each article published throughout the year is added to that volume, being posted online after proofreading and editing.

 

 

3. Open access

 

RBSO does not charge any submission or publications fees (article processing charges - APC). It is an open access journal, as defined by the BOAI (Budapest Open Access Initiative), with no embargo or access charge.

 

 

4. Alignment with open science practices

 

RBSO seeks to be aligned with the practices of open science, a current trend in scientific communication that aims at speeding up the spread of research outcomes and maximizing transparency and interoperability in all publishing stages.

4.1 Manuscripts previously posted on a preprint server
RBSO accepts the submission of unpublished manuscripts that have previously been posted on preprint servers considered reliable at the discretion of the Editors. The journal suggests the following preprint servers to authors: SciELO Preprints, MedRxiv and Europe PMC.

4.2 Research data repositories
Disclosing research data and other supporting content of the manuscript ensures authorship, use and citation of the data and corresponding paper, besides contributing to the understanding of the research and to its peer review, reproducibility, reuse and preservation.
RBSO encourages authors to deposit, previously or at the time of submission, the supporting content used in the research on national or international open access repositories recognized by the scientific community. RBSO recommends using the SciELO Data repository for deposition of research data of articles submitted and approved for publication. The document Lista de repositórios para depósito de dados de pesquisa [Research data repositories list, in Portuguese only], prepared by SciELO, offers suggestions for repositories in different research areas. Other options can be found in the FAIRsharing and Re3Data directories. Depending on the file formats and content, more than one repository may be required. Programming routines used in statistical analysis software can be posted on directories or submitted in complementary files for publication along with the manuscript.

Authors have to cite in the article the data sets and other supporting content posted on repositories and reference the directories used in the list of references. Information about data citation:     

SciELO -Guia de citação de dados de pesquisa (in portuguese);

NLM - Samples of Formatted References for Authors of Journal Articles – item 43;

IASSIST - Quick Guide do Data Citation;

USGS - Data Citation Frequently Asked Questions.

Authors should pay attention to the format of the data to be shared in repositories to avoid disrespecting ethical and legal aspects of confidentiality or anonymity agreements signed with the research participants. Data sharing in open access should have preferably been predicted in the research project and, when applicable, approved by a Research Ethics Committee.

4.3 Peer review
RBSO will progressively introduce the following peer review procedures:

  • Informing in each published manuscript the name (or names) of the editor responsible for its assessment.
  • Offering the possibility of disclosing or not the reviewers’ and authors’ identities.
  • Offering to reviewers the possibility of publishing their review reports, disclosing or not their identity. Published opinions will be indexed and may be cited.

Also aiming to enhance the peer review process, RBSO is now using the Publons platform, offered through SciELO. The platform allows users to search for peer reviewers based on data from Publons, Web of Science and SciELO and offers the Reviewer Recognition Service, which enables proper recognition of the work of reviewers who participate in the journal’s peer review process.

 

 

5. Manuscript assessment process

 

Manuscripts submitted accordingly to the instructions to authors and RBSO editorial policy are checked by the Executive Editorial Board, or appointed editors, in regard to their adequacy to the journal scope, originality, ethical aspects and scientific quality. Studies involving statistical methodologies will also be subjected to preliminary evaluation by the statistical staff of the editorial board. Manuscripts that do not meet the evaluation criteria required in this initial step will be rejected. Those that meet the initial requirements will be assessed by the Editor-in-Chief for scientific merit and study contribution. If the manuscript is considered appropriate, the Editor-in-Chief will designate an Associate Editor to coordinate and follow the peer review process. The Associate Editor will nominate at least two ad hoc reviewers for peer review. If the evaluations are contradictory, or considered insufficient to support his recommendation, the Associate Editor may invite one or more additional reviewers to evaluate the manuscript.

The peer review will take place as agreed by the Editor with the authors and reviewers, according to the following possibilities:

  • Double-blind format: the authors and reviewers’ identities are not mutually revealed; does not apply for manuscripts previously published on preprint servers.
  • Disclosure or not of the reviewers’ and authors’ identities, according to what was previously agreed between the Editors and them.
  • For approved manuscripts, possibility of publishing the recommendation documents, with or without the reviewers’ identity, according to what was agreed with them.

An evaluation form is made available to reviewers to be filled out online through the workflow-management system. The journal recommends that editors and reviewers follow the guidelines proposed by COPE – Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.

The Associate Editor will make his recommendation on the manuscript based on the reports issued by the reviewers and on his own evaluation, indicating refusal, acceptance or need for adjustments and corrections. The Editor-in-Chief will decide whether to refuse or accept the paper or whether the authors will need to comply with the Associated Editor and the reviewer’s recommendations, for further evaluation and final decision. A manuscript rejection can happen at any time, at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief, when a justification will be issued to the author.

Authors may appeal against editorial decisions by sending a message to RBSO executive secretary informing and justifying their disagreement. The message will go to the Executive Editorial Board for analysis and forwarding as deemed necessary.

 

 

6. Scientific Integrity Policy

 

RBSO adopts as references of scientific integrity policy the guidelines recommended by: the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing; the Council Of Science Editors,CSE’s White Paper on Promoting Integrity in Scientific Journal Publications; the SciELO, Guidelines on Best Practices for Strengthening Ethics in Scientific Publication.
Editors and reviewers commit themselves to acting with integrity, impartiality and confidentiality.
For editors: Editors commit themselves to adopting and ensuring editorial freedom and freedom of expression and that published manuscripts comply with internationally accepted ethical recommendations; and shall adopt procedures to identify and seek to prevent the publication of papers guilty of research misconduct. They also commit themselves to dealing appropriately with formal claims of scientific misconduct made by the editorial board or editors; and to seek constant improvement of the journal and its content, including the publication of corrections and retractions, as well as explanations and apologies, whenever necessary.
For reviewers: Reviewers who agree to participate in the peer review process are committed to assessing the work according to best academic and scientific integrity practices and pointing out scientific misconduct, when found. They also commit themselves to maintaining confidentiality of the documents they receive and of the process, during the assessment.
For authors:  When submitting manuscripts, authors commit themselves to respecting the scientific integrity conduct. The journal is committed to ensuring that submitted manuscripts and their associated files will be treated according to the scientific integrity recommendations adopted as standard.

6.1 Plagiarism policy and academic misconduct:
The submitted manuscripts will be checked for originality using plagiarism checker tools to identify plagiarism and inappropriate similarities.
When similarities are considered inappropriate or inadequately cited, the action to be taken by the journal or required from the authors will be defined according to the characteristics of each case.
Suspected misconduct of any kind in published or submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the editorial board and will be treated in accordance with COPE guidelines. Proven cases of scientific misconduct will be reported to the authors' affiliation institutions and to the research funding agencies.
Correction and retraction of published manuscripts: Whenever fraud, distortions, misleading statements or relevant academic inaccuracies are identified, measures for correction or retraction will be immediately taken by the journal. When necessary or requested, authors must provide corrections or retractions. For retracting or correcting published manuscripts, RBSO follows SciELO guidelines (in portuguese): Guia para o registro e publicação de retratação and Guia para o registro e publicação de Errata.

6.2 Ethics in research
Publication of articles resulting from research involving human beings must follow ethical principles (Declaration of Helsinki - adopted in 1964, in its most recent 2013 version) and comply with the specific legislation of the country where it was carried out.
In Brazil, authors must inform about the research protocol approval by the Research Ethics Committee and requirement of the Free and Informed Consent Form.
Research using information from databases that do not have open access or data from medical records must have a formal authorization from the institution responsible for these documents in order to conduct the research and publish its results.
When submitting the manuscript, the information regarding research ethics must be included in the complementary documents, and after its approval must be informed in the article methods section.

6.3 Conflicts of interests
Research support and funding: Authors must reveal all sources of material support and funding, public or private, received by the study presented in the submitted manuscript. Suppliers of equipment or material provided free of charge or at a discount should also be described as funding sources. When the study is carried out without funding, this information should also be declared by the authors.
Authors, reviewers, and editors must disclose any potential conflicts of interest concerning the elaboration or assessment of a submitted manuscript, no matter how unlikely they are. Conflicts may involve financial/commercial, academic, political, or personal interests.
Reviewers must also inform the editorial board whether there is any conflict of interest that may influence their opinion or analysis and inform when their participation as a reviewer of a manuscript is specifically inadequate or inappropriate.
RBSO meets the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommendation: the relationship of the editorial board with the journal's publisher and/or supporting institutions is based on the principle of editorial independence. Editors decide which articles to publish based on merit and scientific quality, regardless of the economic and political realities of these institutions.

6.4 Authorship Criteria
RBSO adopts the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors  (ICMJE) recommended authorship criteria.
Each author must simultaneously meet the four authorship criteria: (1) substantial contribution to study conception or design; or in collecting, analyzing or interpreting data; (2) participation in writing manuscript preliminary versions or its critical revision, with important intellectual contribution; (3) approval of the final version to be published; (4) agreement to be responsible for all aspects of the work and to ensure that issues related to accuracy or completeness of any part of the work have been properly investigated and resolved.
All those designated as authors must meet the four authorship criteria, and all those who meet the four criteria must be identified as authors.
Individuals who do not meet the four criteria mentioned may have their collaboration acknowledged as a thank you, but they should authorize the publication of their name in the acknowledgments of the paper (see item on Acknowledgments in “Preparation of manuscripts”).

6.5 Copyright and responsibility
The content of this journal is available under a Creative Commons CC BY License.
Manuscript submission to the journal implies the authors' agreement to its publication under this license, if approved for publication.
Authors have control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited. RBSO must be cited as the original source of publication of the manuscript.
The author is responsible for obtaining authorizations (from people, institutions, other authors and/or publishers) on copyright for the use of images, figures, tables, methods or other elements used in the manuscript to be published.
When submitting a manuscript, the authors declare that it is an original contribution that has not been previously published, whether in full or in excerpts, in any form of printed or electronic media, except on preprint servers, when applicable; and that it was not and will not be simultaneously submitted to other journals during its evaluation process by Revista Brasileira de Saúde Ocupacional (RBSO); and that, if approved, they agree with its publication in RBSO, under a Creative Commons CC BY, in electronic format or other media, as well as in bibliographic databases and in directories and repositories of scientific articles and journals.

6.6 Registration of clinical trials and research with animal models
RBSO endorses both policies for registration of clinical trials: the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), and recognizes the relevance of these initiatives for international registering and international dissemination of information on clinical trials through open access.
RBSO only publishes articles on clinical trials that have previously obtained an identification number in one of the Clinical Trials Registration Offices certified by WHO or ICMJE standards. Addresses of Registration Offices are available through ICMJE website. Identification number must be indicated underneath the abstract.
Research based on animal models must comply with the Basel Declaration and the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources, National Academy of Sciences, USA).

7.2 Proposals for thematic dossiers

  • Propositions for thematic dossiers to be published by RBSO are continuously open. Proposals will be evaluated by the editorial board and must be sent to rbso@fundacentro.gov.br with the following minimum content:
  • The proposal authors (name, degree, institutional affiliation).
  • The dossier theme and proposed title.
  • Short contextualization and justification for proposing the theme (with citations and references).
  • Contributions expected: manuscript types/ contents/approaches (inform also if there is an intention of including a discussion article).
  • Name and profile of possible collaborators (researchers and others, in case there are any) including the intended geographic coverage (national/international). It is important to note that a public call of papers for the dossier will be opened and all the submitted manuscripts will have to be assessed by the editorial board and peer review according to the journal procedures, including those submitted by invited authors.
  • Suggestion of RBSO Editors and of Invited Editors for the dossier. Attention: RBSO editorial board will necessarily appoint one of its members to join the dossier group of editors. RBSO asserts its right to refuse or suggest names (included or not in its editorial board) to take part in the dossier editorial board.
  • Proposed text for the public call for papers (one page)

7.3 Preparation of manuscripts
Manuscripts in Portuguese, Spanish and English are accepted. Authors are responsible for checking the grammatical correctness. The grammatical quality and the objectivity, clarity and precision of scientific writing will be considered in the manuscript assessment.
Submission of manuscripts in English is encouraged. The writing quality will be an eliminatory criterion for manuscript evaluation. RBSO encourages the presentation of a certificate issued by a professional or companies specialized in English scientific writing and will consider it as an evaluative criterion, but not as determining the manuscript acceptance.


7.3.1 Bilingual publication
An original English-language manuscript accepted for publication will be published in bilingual format, in English and Portuguese. The Portuguese version will be prepared based on the final text to be published in English, that is, after the RBSO post-approval editing revisions have been made. It may be prepared by the authors or by RBSO, and, in that case, it will be submitted for approval by the authors.
Manuscripts accepted for publication with originals in Portuguese or Spanish may be published in bilingual format, with an English version, at the discretion of the editor. Importantly, the decision on publishing the English version is highly dependent on the quality of the text in the original language. For this reason, the original text in Portuguese or Spanish needs to be correctly and objectively written. The English version of the manuscripts indicated for bilingual publication by the editor will be prepared based on the final text to be published in the original language, Portuguese or Spanish, that is, after the final post-approval editorial revisions made by the journal. RBSO will send to the authors the final text in Portuguese or Spanish that will serve as the basis for the English version to be presented by them. The version presented by the authors must be certified by a company or professional specialized in scientific writing in English. However, the presentation of the translation certificate is not decisive for its acceptance. The version presented will be evaluated by the editorial board, which reserves the right not to publish it if the quality is considered inappropriate for publication in RBSO.
All language versions of the same manuscript will be published simultaneously.


7.3.2 Writing and formatting
Aiming at improving the manuscripts assessment and editorial process, we request the authors to check carefully the following important topics before submitting their manuscripts:

  • For the elaboration of the manuscripts, whenever pertinent, follow  EQUATOR – Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of Health Research recommendations, as well as its references and guidelines, specially:
  • for systematic reviews - PRISMA and MOOSE;
  • for observational studies in epidemiology - STROBE;
  • for different kinds of qualitative studies - SRQR and COREQ.
  • Check if the manuscript has the size stipulated for its modality type.
  •  The manuscript must be formatted in font 12 with 2.0 spacing between lines.
  • Review the whole text giving special attention to:
  • the use of correct language and consistent verbal tenses in the whole text.
  • the writing must be straightforward, avoiding repetitive or long sentences.
  • titles of tables, charts and figures must allow the reader to identify their aims as well as their time and geographic delimitation.
  • methods must be clearly described broaching the population and the sample, statistic methods (when applied), research instruments and tools, collecting procedures and data analysis; each one with its respective references.
  • references must be suitable, updated and appropriate to the study and correctly cited.

The text must include:

a) Title in Portuguese or Spanish and in English. It must be pertinent, complete, and abridged. To be detected with greater effectiveness and relevance by online search engines, it is recommended that the title contain a descriptor directly related to the content and be as short as possible. (up to 30 words).

b) Abstract: Manuscripts must have the abstract in two languages. One of them will always be in English. The other will be in Portuguese or Spanish, according to the manuscript original language. The English version, preferably, prepared by a native translator or company specialized in translating scientific articles. Abstracts must have a maximum of 200 words for each language and their content must be compatible with each other. Research article, review article, Report on experience, case report and Short communication must present a structured abstract: Introduction (optional), Objectives, Methods, Results, Discussion and / or Conclusion). In the other manuscript types, the abstract should preferably be presented in a structured form. The abstract should summarize the main point of each corresponding item in the manuscript; conclusions should be limited to the object of the study. Discussion, Book review, Letter and Response do not need an abstract.

c) Keywords/descriptors: From three to five descriptors, presented in each abstract language and compatible with each other. The authors should preferably use the structured vocabulary of the DeCS/MeSH Health Science Descriptors - available at the Biblioteca Virtual de Saúde (Health Virtual Library) and/or at Medical Subject Headings - MeSH.

d) The text structure must follow the conventional format of scientific article writing.

e) Citations and references: RBSO adopts the Vancouver style, according to the National Library of Medicine (National Institutes of Health). The maximum number of references per manuscript is 40 (forty)Review Articles may exceed this limit. Citations shall be numbered consecutively with Arabic number (superscript) in accordance with the order they appear in the text. References shall be listed in the same numerical order.
Authors are fully responsible for the references and citations accuracy. RBSO can refuse a manuscript due to inadequate or inaccurate citations and references.

f) Tables, charts and figures: The total number of tables, charts and figures is restricted to 5 (five). They must be presented one by one, on separate sheets at the end of the text or in separate files. They must be paginated sequentially in Arabic numbers in the same order as they are mentioned in the text. To each one should be given a synthetic title contextualizing the presented data. Figures should not repeat data presented in the tables. No vertical lines should be used in the tables. The minimum internal spacing between the rows of a table must be 1.15. Each table should not exceed 1 page. Larger or supplementary tables, if necessary, may be submitted as extra documents. These parameters do not apply to Review Articles. Each Table, Chart or Figure must be mentioned in the text. Sources, notes, observations, abbreviations and acronyms concerning the tables, charts and figures contents must be presented under their main body. Figures (diagrams, photos. charts etc.) should also be presented individually in separate files. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, the figures will be required in a high quality electronic file format. Photos and illustrations must have a high image resolution, over 300 dpi, and must be in jpg or tiff or eps files. Photos and illustrations will only be published if their quality is considered satisfactory.

g) Acknowledgment (optional): It refers to those who collaborated intellectually to the study, either by providing scientific assistant, or by producing a critical review of the manuscript, or even by collecting data, but who did not meet the authorship criteria, and as long as the nominated persons agree in having the name published in this condition. The nominated persons' permission should be forwarded to the journal by the authors.  Institutions which offered financial, material, or any other support may also be included. Acknowledgment information should not be included in the main manuscript document upon submission; it must be submitted in a separate document, which should be classified on the ScholarOne platform as “supplement file not for review”.

 

 

8. Sending the manuscript

 

Simultaneous submission of the same manuscript in more than one journal is not allowed as well as to submit to another journal at the same time the evaluation process is in progress in RBSO. Neither is it allowed to publish the same results of a research, in whole or in part, in more than one journal. It is also not allowed to publish the translation of manuscripts already published in other journal or media.

Manuscripts must be electronically submitted by using ScholarOne Manuscripts.

The platform has an English HELP Page for authors.

Further explanations can be obtained by e-mail: rbso@fundacentro.gov.br.

 

 

9. After-approval reviews

 

Approved manuscripts will be subjected to the revisions required for publication. RBSO safeguards its rights to make grammatical corrections and adjustments in order to improve understanding, grammar and the quality of scientific writing. Authors will have the opportunity to check and approve the reviews before the manuscript is published. After this review process, the electronic files needed for the on-line publication will be produced. RBSO adopts the rolling pass system where the approved manuscript is published on-line as soon as it has been revised and the electronic files produced.

9.1 Electronic backup and file preservation

RBSO articles published in SciELO are preserved by Rede Brasileira de Serviços de Preservação Digital - CARINIANA Network.
