Submission of manuscripts

Manuscripts submitted to Brazilian Journal of Infectious Diseases should be sent to the editor in chief login address. Each manuscript will be assigned a registration number, and the author will be notified that the manuscript is complete and appropriate to begin the review process.

EVISE is a system that allows submission of papers and of the editorial board in a fully web. The EVISE is based on access levels, so when a user submits a manuscript for review and approval, it remains only to display the author and the editorial board, keeping it safe from other authors who have not participated in the research and development work. It is crucial that the author who submits papers in the EVISE has registered an email which he uses, because all the information and notices concerning status, approval or refusal of work will be done by email. If the author changes the email, they can update their cadastral data through the section "Registration" on the navigation bar.
