INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Form and preparation of manuscripts
Articles for publication shall be exclusively forwarded to Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia. Articles already published in other journals will not be accepted.
Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia classifies the articles in the following categories:
Editorial Process: The manuscripts submitted to the Brazilian Journal of Anesthesiology are initially evaluated by editors to verify the content's compliance with the journal's editorial line. If any one of these aspects is considered unsatisfactory, the manuscript is rejected and automatically archived into the system. If it receives a positive evaluation, the manuscript proceeds to a double-blind peer review, which ensures the anonymity of authors and reviewers. Reviewers can rule the manuscript as accepted, rejected, or needs review (whether in form or content). The Editors in Chief then assesses the rulings issued by the reviewers, and the final ruling is sent to the registered author. The corrections requested must be submitted within 30 days. If there is a delay in returning the proof, the Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to publish independent of the final correction or exclude the manuscript from the editorial process. The revised manuscript, after implementing the changes suggested by the reviewers, should be resubmitted along with the specific indications of any changes made to the text or the reasons why the changes were not made. The manuscripts accepted may be subjected to minor corrections or changes which do not alter the author’s style. Possible modifications in format, style or interpretation will only be carried out after previous consultation to the author.
The ultimate publication will be based on the final approval of the editors.
The manuscripts denied, will be returned with a justification of the Editor-in-Chief.

Conflict of Interest
Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note.
When informed consent has been obtained it should be indicated in the published article.
Clinical Trials Registry
The Journal has the right of not publishing trials not complying with these and other legal and ethical standards determined by international guidelines.

Physician may not:
Throughout its 51 years, Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia has counted on the cooperation of laboratories and anesthesia equipment manufacturers just in advertising their products without interfering in the scientific publications.
It is worth underlying that Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia is managed by The Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology itself, which has a budget and the statutory duty of publishing the journal without the need of selling ads. So, the periodicity of the journal is not dependent on money coming from advertisers. The budget proposal of the Society takes into account expenses with the publication of regular editions of the journal which is paid using part of the members fees.
There is no fee for submission and review articles.
The Journal adopts iThenticate system for plagiarism identification.
