BAR - Brazilian Administration Review

BAR is a scholarly journal on business and public administration published quarterly since 2004 by ANPAD (Brazilian Academy of Management). It is a fully open-access online journal that abides by the principles of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and DORA (San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment). It does not charge authors, readers or institutions in any way and does not organize special issues as per the request of individuals, institutions or conferences. BAR is available in most indexing services, including SCOPUS.

Areas of interest:

Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance & Economics, Human Resources & Labor Relations Management, Management Information Systems & Decision Support, International Business, Logistics, Operations & Supply Chain Management, Marketing, Organization Studies, Public Administration, Science, Technology & Innovation Management, Social & Environmental Management, and Strategy.


Launched in 2004, BAR has an international scope in terms of topics of interest, target audience, and editorial boards. It is an A2-journal according to the Brazilian classification Qualis/Capes (second highest rank), which is evidence of the quality of published works and transparency of the editorial process. BAR follows the editorial principles available in document Best Practices of Scientific Publication, an initiative by the Brazilian Academy of Management (ANPAD) to assist journals in meeting high scholarly standards and enhancing their theoretical and applied impact. BAR is also a member of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and signatory of DORA (San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment), what are additional evidences of BAR's commitment to the most rigorous ethical principles in scholarly publication.

According to the Brazilian indexing service SPELL (Scientific Periodicals Electronic Library, spell.org.br), there are more than 100 Brazilian journals that publish original studies in the fields covered by BAR. BAR stands out in this scenario due to meeting world-class editorial standards, such as the commitment to editorial deadlines, the application of theoretical and methodological rigor in the review of manuscripts, the scholarly reputation of the editorial boards, and the strict use of English throughout the entire editorial process. Actions like these have been contributing to the image of BAR as home to unique intellectual production.

BAR’s editorial process is highly structured, with systematic procedures intended to assist the editor-in-chief, senior editors, associate editors and reviewers in the editorial process. Besides the editorial board, the journal also has an experienced office staff supporting all processes in order to assure publication quality, timeliness and adherence to other requirements of indexing services such as Scopus, SciELO, and Spell. The office staff checks submissions for originality, formatting standards, APA norms and English usage, communicates with authors, reviewers and editors on ordinary routines, and builds statistics from the various indexing platforms where BAR is present - and the office also feeds those platforms with data from BAR.

As part of the constantly improving editorial process, in 2012, BAR adopted the practice of publishing articles ahead of print, i.e., online publishing of accepted articles before the complete full issue is published. Also, in 2014, BAR started to encode articles in XML, a due action for all journals indexed by SciELO. In 2015, BAR adopted a CC-BY Creative Commons license, also following SciELO standards. That license is used by different publishers and titles to make it easier to access information and disseminate knowledge. In 2016, the ahead-of-print practice evolved to a continuous publication model, a model that was championed by BAR in its field in Brazil. That is, BAR publishes articles in final form and sends them to the indexing services as soon as they complete the full editorial process and independently of the other documents to be published in the same issue. In an era of digital technologies, BAR thus quickly reaches the reader and disseminates knowledge from highly relevant scholarly studies to an audience keen on innovation and advancements in the frontiers of science and practice.

BAR is present in many of the most prestigious indexing platforms, such as Scopus, Cabell’s, SciELO, ProQuest, DOAJ, EBSCO, Gale/Cengage Learning, IBSS, Latindex, Ullrichs, Spell, Sumários.org, and Redalyc.


BAR is published quarterly (January-March, April-June, July-September, October-December), but it also adopts the continuous publication model. The idea is to streamline the publication process so as to make documents available as soon as their editorial process is complete. BAR is a Brazilian pioneer in its field in using the continuous publication model.

Its abbreviated for is BAR, Braz. Adm. Rev., which should be used in cataloguing, footnotes and bibliographical references.
