1. GUIDELINES FOR THE COLLABORATORS
Social Agenda Magazine, published every four months, discloses the production of researchers from different fields of training and institutional linkages in Brazil and abroad. Coordinated by the Postgraduation Program in Social Policy – PPGPS, it is committed to multidisciplinary dialogue with diversity of viewpoints in order to deepen reflections in the scientific field. It is classified by CAPES with Qualis B3, in the interdisciplinary area, B4 in Education, and B5 in Sociology.
In principle, it will not be accepted contributions that have already been published in others Brazilian or foreign magazines. Authors are asked not to show, at the same time, their texts to other periodicals. Impartiality is one of the basic characteristics of Social Agenda and has the purpose to avoid potential conflicting interests. Therefore, the examination of texts proceeds in two stages: first, the Editorial Committee assess the adequacy of the work to the publishing line of the magazine. Then, the text is sent to, at least two experts, members of the Editorial or Consulting Council, who must write down their opinions on the desirability or otherwise of its acceptance. The final decision belongs to the Executive Committee. The opinions given by the experts may include suggestions for amendments, additions, improvements or adaptations to be made according to the author’s agreement. In the process, the names of the referees remain anonymous and together with them the names of the contributors.
Articles, reviews and interviews submitted must be accompanied by a signed statement authorizing its publication and, in cases of acceptance, the texts will be published in the internet. For items with more than one author, it should be informed the order of presentation of the writers. The copyrights of the articles are reserved to the Postgraduation Program in Social Policy – UENF and their entire or partial reproduction depend on express authorization, as well as the occasional quotations depend on the mention of the author and of the Social Agenda Magazine.
