The Brazilian Journal of Public Administration (RAP), was launched in 1967 and has been published continuously since then by the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration of the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV EBAPE). The journal is published in three languages (English, Portuguese and Spanish) and it is the leading journal of public administration and public policies studies in Brazil. In recent years, RAP has attracted international academic contributions, especially from Ibero-American countries.
The editorial process of RAP, from manuscript submission to publication decision, involves several parties: author(s), editor, associate editors, editorial board, reviewers, and editorial staff – thus, complying with the ethical standards applied by the journal at all stages of the editorial process is mandatory.
RAP, as a journal with national and international reach, is grounded in the ethical practices provided for by the regulations of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) – Criteria, policy, and procedures for admission and permanence of scientific journals in the SciELO Brazil Collection – and the National Association of Graduate Studies and Research in Administration (ANPAD) – Good practices of scientific publication – a manual for authors, reviewers, editors, and editorial board members, which set parameters for good editorial practices.
Each member of the journal’s Editorial Structure, while pursuing her/his duties, takes responsibilities based on ethical practices in relation to gender relations, religion, and politics, ensuring her/his neutrality throughout the editorial process.

Safeguarding the editorial ethics of the studies submitted and published, RAP uses the software for checking content similarity/plagiarism (Crossref Similarity Check). Also, it resorts to the collaboration of expert reviewers, who, during double blind review, notify the editorial staff about any significant similarity between the manuscript submitted and articles already published or simultaneously submitted to other journals, as well as other information deemed relevant.
Every stage of the editorial process, estimated deadlines, etc. are informed in the flowchart, available on the journal webpage for the internal and external audiences (editorial board, authors, readers). The annual statistical data may also be accessed by the journal’s regulation and classification agencies and the academic community as a whole.
