As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.

  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.

  • It is ensured a blind peer review.

Author Guidelines

Manuscripts should be edited single-spaced on standard pages (A4), font Times New Roman, 12 pt.

Organization of the Information

The manuscript’s first page should include the following information in Portuguese and English: title, abstract and keywords.

To ensure blind peer review, any information that may identify the author should be removed from the manuscript. So, a separate document (with the article's title) should contain the following information:

1) author(s) name(s);

2) biographical note of up to 150 words, complete institutional addresses (including street, postal code, city, and country), email address, and ORCID. This data will be available in the published version, and by providing it, you consent to its disclosure;

3) complete information on the affiliation of all authors, including the name of the home institution at three levels (ex: Postgraduate Programme/Department/Centre, Faculty/School and University), city and country;

4) acknowledgements (optional) should include only references to funding and, eventually, to institutions that may have facilitated access to data;

5) individual contribution of each author according to the principles established in the Contributor Roles Taxonomy (CRedit) methodology. That does not apply to works with only one author or introductory notes.

Interviews must be provided with a statement of consent from the interviewee, who has to approve the transcription.

Texts in Portuguese must be consistent with the new Portuguese Language Orthographic Agreement of 1990. Furthermore, considering the differences in spelling among Portuguese-speaking countries, it is recommended that the wording specificities of Portuguese spelling in all its variants (Brazil, Angola, Mozambique...) be respected, despite the new orthography.
