History

In 1992, the Director Board of the School of Public Health of the University of São Paulo (FSP - USP) and of São Paulo’s Public Health Association (APSP) have partnered to carry out an editorial project. From this initiative stemmed the Journal Saúde e Sociedade, which is at present a consolidated reference of the interface between Social and Human Sciences in the fields of Public/Collective Health.

Instructions to authors

 

Scope and Policy

 

Editorial Policy

To disseminate scientific output at the interface of social and human sciences with  the Public/Collective Health field; to publicize new social approaches to health, including those that understand the field of health as an object of social analysis; to host the technical output with relevant results for the progress and improvement of health systems and forms of care; to stimulate the debate on challenging health topics and struggles for quality of life.

Areas of interest

Since its creation, Saúde e Sociedade has published works from different fields of expertise related to or concerned with Public/Collective Health. It aims to encompass the output from different branches of the human and social sciences, incorporating both the scientific and theoretical production and that related to proposals for intervention and institutional practices.

Types of articles

All types of manuscripts must rigorously follow the rules of presentation available in the section "Preparation of Manuscripts", as well as the section "Ethics in scientific publication and plagiarism policy".

For word counting purposes, we do not include Abstracts. Remember that the Abstract(s) must be present in the body of the article, even if it is not part of the word count.

Saúde e Sociedade publishes original material of research and knowledge update, in the form of:

a) Articles - analytical texts resulting from original theoretical or empirical research, related to topics of interest to the journal (up to 6000 words);

b) Essays - texts based on theoretical, methodological or thematic discussions, eliciting innovative aspects or discussing issues at stake in the range of interest of the journal (up to 7000 words);

c) Comments - short texts responding to previously published material in the journal, offering complementary information, contributions or respectful and constructive criticism, in order to foster the academic and technical debate of the field output -- by indicating the type of material on the Scholar System, please identify it as Letter to the Editor (up to 1000 words); and

d) Interviews - testimonies of personalities or experts of the field aiming both the restoration of Public/Collective Health history and the update of topics of interest to the journal (up to 6000 words).

The Journal publishes both spontaneous contributions fitting its editorial policy and experts’ articles written by request. At the invitation of editors, Saúde e Sociedade may thus publish:

  • Dossiers - essay-like or analytical texts resulting from original studies or research on a topic indicated by editors and at their request;
  • Editorials - thematic texts under the editors or invited researchers' responsibility (up to 2000 words);
  • Short comments, news or reviews of published books of interest to the field, at the request of the editorial board;
  • Annals - of congresses or other scientific events pertaining to the journal editorial guidelines, at the request of editors.
  • Supplements – Special issues, with a set of articles on a specific theme or issue, submitted for evaluation by the journal by its proponents.

Peer review procedure

The selection of articles for publication assesses the scientific merit and their compliance to the editorial norms adopted by the journal. All text sent for publication is submitted to  pre-assessment of the Editorial Board. Once approved, it is forwarded for peer review (at least two ad hoc referees). Both the identity of authors as well as referees shall be kept confidential. The material is then returned to authors if the reviewers suggest changes and/or corrections. In the case of divergent reviews, the text is forwarded to a third referee for arbitration. The final decision about the merit is under the Editorial Board's responsibility (editors, associate editors and ad hoc associate editors).

The texts are the responsibility of the authors, and do not necessarily correspond to that of editors or the journal Editorial Board.

On the originality of material

The contents of the articles submitted for publication must not have been previously published or simultaneously submitted to any other journal. 

Copyright transference

By submitting an article, the authors agree to transfer all copyright related to the manuscript approved to the journal, being permitted its complete or partial reproduction in any other mean of publication, printed or digital, since the source is cited, conferring the due credit to the Saúde e Sociedade.

Ethics in scientific publishing and plagiarism policy

The detection of plagiarism implies the immediate exclusion of the assessment system.

Saúde e Sociedade takes the practice guidelines and the plagiarism policy elaborated by the Committee on Publications Ethics - COPE as a reference and, since 2019, it adopts specific softwares to measure textual or content similarity between the material submitted to assessment/publication and other publications, including those of the authors.

The intellectual output disseminated by the journal must be authorial and original. The editorial board will ascertain inadequate practices for scientific purposes, according to the aforementioned principles, without prejudice to the critical academic production and the expression of freedom of thought.

The Journal emphatically refutes all forms of plagiarism or any attempt of misappropriation of others' intellectual work, including self-plagiarism based on the demands of academic productivism, which is incompatible with the responsible knowledge sharing. The originality of pieces submitted to assessment/publication is considered both with regards to the authorial sources of the developed and/or referred contents and to the formal aspects of writing.

Upon submitting the texts, we request the authors to ponder about the actual need to include the name of co-authors in manuscripts, including the cases of participation of academic research supervisors and coordinators. There must be a particular caution regarding works derived from Master's, PhD's and post-doc research, so that the authors do not commit self-plagiarism. Even in the cases of manuscripts inspired by or derived from stricto sensu research, it is important that the sources of contents, while preserving the identity of authors during the assessment process, are duly referred to and the text is effectively original.

Funding

In case the text results from research funded by public or private entities, this information must be mandatorily provided in the final version of publication, but not in the submitted manuscript.

On Authorship

People designated as authors must have participated in the preparation of the papers, so that they may take public responsibility for its contents. To be qualify as author, they must have taken part in the conception, design, analisys or interpretation of data, or must have written the paper or participated of its critical review and approval of the version to be published.

At the end of the article, the individual contributions of each author for the paper must be specified.

In the file of the manuscript, the authors and their contribution must be left out, for the proper blind peer review. The manuscript file should not present data that lead to the identification of authorship, such as: authors' names, which must also not appear in the name or identification of the file; identification number of the ethics committee's opinion; name of research; funding source, among others. If you want to send this data in a separate file, it can be included as a file NOT for review.
