General Information

Texts must be submitted exclusively through the internet. The submission system is available at http://mc04.manuscriptcentral.com/spmj-scielo. After receipt of the article by the Scientific Publications Sector, the authors will be provided with a protocol number. This number serves to maintain good understanding between the authors and the Scientific Publications Sector. Following this, the article will be read by the Editor, who will verify whether it is consonant with the journal’s policy and interests, i.e. whether the research or review is within the fields of health or public health.
Next, the Scientific Publications Sector will verify whether the text complies with the journal’s Instructions for Authors. If the text is incomplete or if it is not organized as required, the authors will be asked to resubmit their text after resolving such problems. When its format is acceptable, the Scientific Publications Sector will submit the manuscript to closed review, in which the reviewers will not sign their verdict and will not know the names of the authors. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three reviewers: one expert in the field, one associate editor (who will evaluate the article from the perspective of the reader) and one ad hoc editorial advisor (who will assess methodological aspects of the study).
The authors will then receive the reviewers’ evaluation and will be asked to resolve all the problems that have been pointed out. Once the Scientific Publications Sector receives the manuscript again, the text will be sent to the scientific editor and the proofreader, who will point out problems with sentence construction, spelling, grammar, bibliographical references and other matters. The authors should then provide all further information required.
When the text is considered acceptable for publication, and only then, it will enter the queue for publication. The Scientific Publications Sector will provide a proof, including any tables and figures, for the authors to approve. No article is published without this last procedure.
