Revised guidelines in force from 01.08.2021

I. Submission of manuscripts

1. IJS| International Journal of Sciences, accepts original texts which may contribute to advancing transdisciplinary research on national and international social reality, to promoting reflection and discussion on research instruments and methods, and to disseminating information and knowledge within the social sciences and the humanities.

2. IJS publishes issues edited by the Executive Editorial Board (non-thematic issues) or by guest editors, who are responsible for preparing thematic issues in collaboration with the Executive Editorial Board. Although individual authors may be invited to submit manuscripts, all the texts must follow the guidelines contained in this document, and will be evaluated as described below.

3. The manuscripts submitted to IJS must be unpublished and authored by the person(s) submitting them. The manuscripts must clearly identify the source of every item that is not original (e.g. text excerpts, illustrations, tables, etc.), and make explicit reference, whenever necessary, to permissions obtained from copyright holders and/or authors. In the latter case, if the manuscripts include items protected by intellectual property rights, authors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders.

4. Submission of a paper to IJS is a certification by the author(s) that the manuscript has not been otherwise published (in print or digital format, in Brazil or abroad, in Portuguese or any other language), or submitted at the same time to any other publication (in this regard see “Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement” at IJS Ethics pageAlthough the IJS editorial policy is to publish original manuscripts, the Executive Editorial Board may decide in exceptional cases to publish a previously published text, based on criteria of scholarly and intellectual relevance and opportuneness. In that case, the manuscript will only be published with an authorization from the owner(s) of the intellectual property rights.

5. Manuscripts may be submitted in Portuguese or English and will be published in English. Writing quality and clarity are essential requirements for publication.

II. Review and decision process

1. The Executive Editorial Board reserves the right to publish or not submitted manuscripts, and informs the authors of its decision within a reasonable time frame. This decision is supported by an evaluation of the manuscripts based on a peer-review system, carried out in two consecutive stages:

a) initial assessment by the Executive Editorial Board, which decides on the manuscript’s submission to the following stage of the process, involving its evaluation by anonymous reviewers; this decision is made taking into consideration criteria of relevance, interest and quality, defined according to the journal's editorial policy, as well as the manuscript’s conformity to the submission guidelines contained in this document;

b) detailed evaluation of the selected manuscripts by anonymous reviewers through a double-blind peer review system. Reviews resulting of this process will be used as a basis for the final decision on the manuscript's publication.

2. The Executive Editorial Board may suggest revisions to authors, according to the recommendations made by the reviewers, and ask for a new evaluation of the revised paper in order to make the final decision on its publication.

3. In the case of manuscripts submitted to the second stage of evaluation, if they are not accepted for publication, IJS will inform the authors of the reasons for this decision, generally attaching the reviewers’ opinions and sending them to the authors.

4. Authors are fully responsible for the published manuscripts.

III. Short reviews, reviews and review essays of books and websites

In addition to manuscripts, IJS also publishes reviews of books and websites that are relevant to its fields of study. The contributions for these sections of the journal must conform to one of the formats described below.

1. Short book reviews

Short book reviews must be about works published in the previous 12 months and may be written in Portuguese or English. Texts must be short (4,000 characters with spaces max.), and must include

a) full bibliographic reference;

b) a brief description of the work’s content, indicating its key topics, and, when appropriate, quoting an especially relevant excerpt;

c) a brief critical commentary, summarizing the reasons for highlighting the reviewed work.


2. Book reviews

Book reviews may be written in Portuguese or English and should refer to works published within the previous 24 months. Texts must not exceed 8,000 characters with spaces and should include:

a) full bibliographic reference;

b) summary of the work's main arguments; its relation to the author's previous work and to the state of the art in its field; quotation of a few relevant excerpts;

c) critical discussion of the work, assessing whether or not it makes a new contribution to the field, whether it opens up new paths for future research, whether it raises questions that are left unanswered, etc.

3. Review essays

Review essays may be written in Portuguese or English and refer to a group of works (by the same author or by several authors about the same subject), and are typically prompted by the publication of one or more books within the previous 24 months. Exceptionally, they may refer to earlier works if they are relevant to current interests (e.g. a Portuguese translation of “classic” works that raises further discussion on particular issues). Texts must not exceed 20,000 characters with spaces and must include:

a) full bibliographic reference of the discussed works;

b) in-depth discussion of the state of the art regarding the issue(s) involved, clearly addressing the relevance and contribution of each work to furthering the debate on those issues;


c) personal contribution of the review essay’s author to the elucidation of the issues involved, providing alternative ways of understanding them, etc.

4. Website reviews

Website reviews, published in the journal section entitled “IJS VIRTUAL SPACE ,” are critical presentations of websites with content that is relevant to the understanding or discussion of a particular subject or research field. Texts may be written only in Portuguese, must not exceed 5,000 characters with spaces and must present the website in question, highlighting its theme, usefulness, novelty and relevance from a critical perspective, including its merits and/or shortcomings.

IV. Publication and distribution rights

1. The authors of texts published in IJS authorize the transfer of edition, publication, distribution, reproduction and marketing rights (including all the items that they may contain, such as photographs, drawings, tables, data files, etc.) to IJS. The authorization covers the edition, publication, distribution, reproduction and marketing of texts in print or digital format, including, in the latter case, their dissemination through distribution and/or marketing platforms of online articles with which IJS has established agreements. All contents published online are available under a Creative Commons License Attribution CC BY.


2. It is IJS’ responsibility to decide on the circulation of journal’s issue.


3. The authors also authorize the translation of the abstract and keywords of the manuscript to be published in IJS, in case they didn’t send them.


4. The above-mentioned transfer of rights is royalty-free, and IJS will not offer any other compensation besides supplying the authors with one copy of the issue in which the text has been published and a digital copy of this text (PDF).

5. Authors who wish to republish a manuscript accepted for publication in IJS, in whole or in part, should always make an explicit reference to the original publication in IJS, as defined by the Creative Commons License Attribution CC BY.
