1. EDITORIAL POLICY
REBEn has the mission of disseminating the Science of Nursing and Health. It accepts manuscripts in Portuguese, English and Spanish. It is published only in the electronic version by means of regular fascicles and thematic numbers.
Manuscripts written in Portuguese or Spanish must be translated into English in their final version.
The manuscripts must be exclusively addressed to REBEn, and their simultaneous submission to other journal(s).
For the publication, REBEn considers it a sine qua non condition that the submitted manuscripts have to comply with the ethical-legal guidelines which involve the elaboration of academic and/or technical-scientific works and the research with humans or animals.
In the case of research involving human beings, and in compliance with the provisions of CNS Resolution 466/2012 (http://aplicacao.saude.gov.br/plataformabrasil/login.jsf), the author(s) must mention in the manuscript, the approval of the project by the Ethics Committee recognized by the Comissão Nacional de Ética em Pesquisa (CONEP - Brazilian Commission for Research Ethics), the Brazilian National Health Council (CNS - Conselho Nacional de Saúde), or by an equivalent body, when it is carried out in another country.
REBEn adopts the World Health Organization and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors’s requirements to register clinical trials (randomized experimental studies) on a platform which meets the criteria developed by these two organizations (Registro Brasileiro de Ensaios Clínicos – REBEC - http://www.ensaiosclinicos.gov.br/).
It also supports international standards for the publication of responsible research, developed by COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and intended for publishers and authors (available from: http://publicationethics.org/international-standards-editors-and-authors).
Concepts, ideas or opinions expressed in manuscripts, as well as the origin and accuracy of the citations contained therein, are the sole responsibility of the author(s).
The Revista Brasileira de Enfermagem adopts the Ithenticate system to identify plagiarism. Practices that hurt scientific integrity such as plagiarism and self-plagiarism will be taken for assessment by the Editorial Board for decision of penalties as: suspension of publishing in the periodical by a period determined by the Editorial Board. Authors will be immediately notified of all stages of this process.
