Consideration of manuscripts

Original articles submitted for consideration will be analyzed firstly by the Editorial Desk for compliance to editorial standards, internal coherence, relevance to the journal's editorial line, and contribution to innovation in its field of knowledge. Important notice: in this stage, the original manuscript must not exceed 40,000 characters with spaces.

If approved in the preliminary stage, the manuscript is forwarded for a merit analysis of its contents. This is the peer review stage, where both the consultants and the authors remain anonymous. The manuscript is analyzed by the journal's assessment tool. Expert opinions submitted by the consultants are reviewed by the Editorial Desk for compliance with the rules of publication, content and relevance. After this process, the manuscript is sent back to its authors with a statement of acceptance, reformulation or rejection.

There is no fee for submission and review articles.

The moral and intellectual rights of articles belong to the authors, not being property of the journal.

Submission of manuscripts

Original articles may be submitted for consideration by e-mail, at, or online via Scielo (Scientific Electronic Library Online).
