Papers submitted to the journal must comply with all requirements below. Otherwise, they will be rejected in the first instance.

1 – The Brazilian Journal of Rural Economics and Sociology (RESR) accepts original scientific manuscripts, written in Portuguese, English or in Spanish, related to agriculture, agribusiness and rural issues. Articles from other areas will have their relevance judge by the editors.

2 – To ensure anonymity during the evaluation process of the article, authors should not be identified in the text and should avoid any reference to their institution. The identification and institutional affiliation of the authors will be filled in on the appropriate field on the journal's website, and will only be accessible by the Editorial Board and editors of RESR.

3 – Each text can have 5 (five) authors, at most.

4 – Authors can submit 2 (two) manuscripts per year, as first author or as co-author. The submission of a third article submitted by the same author will be automatically canceled.

5 – Submitted manuscripts will be subject to a preliminary review by the editors, who will decide whether they should be sent to referees or not. The authors will be informed of this decision by email. If the manuscript is approved by the editors, it will then be reviewed by two external referees under the "blind review" system. In case of conflicting opinions, the editors will judge the manuscript and may consult the Editorial Board. In all cases, a decision to accept, reject, or request a revised manuscript will be communicated electronically to the authors, with a summary of the referees' evaluations.

The first page of the article must also contain a title, abstract and keywords in a second language - for example: if the article is in English, the data must also be in Spanish or Portuguese. In addition, if possible, articles should contain Introduction, Theoretical Foundation, Methodology, Results and Discussion, Conclusions and References. The manuscripts must be in “doc” or “docx” format and they can not be protected. Files which do not follow this format will be denied.

They will be putin the standard RESR format if the manuscript is accepted for publication.

9 – The author(s) should cite the sources of the data and models used and explain the methodology and estimation procedures adopted. The Footnotes should be numbered consecutively throughout the text. Bibliographic References must follow the rules adopted by the APA (American Psychological Association) and listed, in alphabetical order, at the end of the article. Only the references cited in the manuscript should be included.

10 – Authors are requested to send a letter to the Editorial Board of RESR, indicating if the text is a result of a graduation course study, master or doctorate, a research project of a research group, among other possibilities. There is also the need to detail financing sources, research and coordination teams, duration of the project and if there are preliminary versions released in scientific events. In this letter, the SIGNATURE of all AUTHORS is necessary. The letter has to be included in Scielo’s online system, as “Supplementary Document”. Submissions that do not follow this requirement will not be forwarded to referees.

As a way to standardize authorship, including the ID of ORCID when submitting papers is now compulsory, a decision by RESR’s Editorial Board. After the first analysis, before the paper starts to be evaluated, authors of manuscripts that do not have ORCID included will be notified to do so.
The ORCID identifier is free and can be obtained here: https://orcid.org/register.

The authors may accept the standard to present the ORCID ID, and include the complete URL, followed by "http://" in the enrolment, right after the e-mail. For example: http://orcid.org/0000-0002-1825-0097. Check here (http://www.sibi.usp.br/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Tutorial_ORCID_SIBiUSP_rev_Final_Dez_2016.pdf ) the tutorial for the enrolment. The ORCID registration is compulsory for all authors.


All articles sent must pay the processing fee in the amount of R$ 100 (BRL)/submission. Forwarded articles (with Reject and Ressubmit decision) must pay the processing fee again. Articles filed for a period of time will not be refunded.

The processing fee must be paid by Credit Card (http://ecpay.editoracubo.com.br/pay/resr/taxa-tramitacao?lang=en) and any information on this link can be clarified with the financial sector: billing@editoracubo.com.br

If the article is approved, the author must collect a second article processing fee (APC) or publication fee in the amount of R$ 600 (BRL)/article.

However, the payment of the publication fee will only take place after the authors receive the acceptance letter, in a private link and at the time of processing the article.


Authors can submit manuscripts to SciELO Preprints before or in parallel to submission to this journal RESR. This type of manuscript does not have a peer review formalized by a journal. In such cases, the manuscript is automatically uploaded when it meets the basic selection criteria or if approved after basic assessment by editors of the manuscript’s area and will receive a DOI assigned by SciELO Preprints.

RESR can also submit manuscripts already approved that are in the final process of evaluation, editing and publication. In these cases, the manuscript is automatically uploaded and will have the same DOI as the final journal article.


It is suggested that, before the submission, authors read and evaluate their papers answering the questions below, which increases chances for the manuscript to be accepted for publication. In case any answer is negative, arguments are recommended in order to explain the reason for that.

1. If the manuscript has preliminary versions presented in research conferences and seminars, does this version include suggested contributions?

2. What is the important contribution that the manuscript brings for the knowledge in the research area?

3. Does the paper mention other manuscripts released in Brazilian and international scientific journals?

4. Does the manuscript mention papers published in scientific journals over the last five years?

5. Does your paper present references and quotes from classic authors in the field of work?

6. Does your manuscript follow rules from RESR editorial board?

7. The methodology for research and the theoretical apparatus used are described in a desirable way?

8. Did your paper face a grammatical revision?
