Focus and Scope
BRAJIS publishes original manuscripts related to Information Science and related areas, such as Library Science, Archival Science, Museology and the like.
Articles must be written in proper English, Portuguese or Spanish.
We cannot publish papers with poor writing, misspellings, and/or grammar mistakes.
Only occasional and minor mistakes are allowed. Authors are responsible for the translation, style correction and costs.
Peer Review Process
All manuscripts must be submitted through the system. Editors cannot receive manuscripts by email or submit manuscripts on behalf of the authors
Manuscripts are peer reviewed in a "double blind peer review" process. At least two reviewers must accept the paper to be considered for publication.
Manuscripts can be returned to the authors for in case the reviewers suggest revisions.
The author will be notified when a paper is received and, also, when is accepted or rejected for publication.
BRAJIS holds the right of correcting and altering grammatical, orthographic, and normative aspects, always respecting the style of the authors. The final version of the paper will not necessarily be sent to the authors.
Submitting and having accepted a paper in BRAJIS means that the authors give full rights to the journal for publication. The moral rights (attribution, etc.) and their responsibilities remain of the author though.
