Do you provide feedback when an article is rejected?
No, we don't provide feedback due to the number of submissions we receive.
Who can submit articles to this journal? Is there a minimum qualification (e.g. PhD) for making a submission?
We only publish articles by professional researchers and scholars. It is expected that authors will have a PhD or, in exceptional cases, relevant equivalent research experience. Articles should make a relevant contribution to the interdisciplinary field of Brazilian Studies and explicitly state and articulate this contribution clearly.
When are the issues published?
In August and December of each year.
Do you peer-review all articles?
All articles published in the sections 'Dossier' and 'General' have gone through a double-blind peer-review process as the minimum standard. The sections 'Book Reviews' and 'Varia' are reviewed by the editors only.
How long does it take for an article to be reviewed and, if approved, published?
Timescales of reviews depend on the availability of reviewers and editors. Please be patient. All submissions will be read by the editorial team. If selected, the submission will then go to through the peer review process. The status of submissions can be checked when the user is logged into the Brasiliana platform. We do not make any promises about the time it will take to reach a decision.
Am I going to receive an email about the outcome of my submission.
We will only contact authors of the articles that have been selected. We suggest you access the platform to check the status of your submission.
What is your policy on book reviews?
We only publish reviews of books from the past two years. If you are interested in writing a book review, please read the Guidelines for Peer Reviewers and contact the book review editor.
