Instructions to authors

 

Scope and policy

 

The Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia (RBE) [Brazilian Journal of Epidemiology]aims to publishing original and new articles that contribute to the improvement of knowledge and development of Epidemiology and related sciences.

The RBE receives manuscripts in the following categories:

  • Original articles: with new results of researches (3,400 words at most);
  • Systematic review and metanalysis articles: integrative reviews are not accepted. Maximum of 3,400 words;
  • Methodological articles and theoretical trials: articles that deal with techniques or theories used in epidemiological studies (3,400 words at most);
  • Articles that describe and analyze the methodological procedures of studies carried out in Brazil: the aim is to present how population-based studies were developed, whether they were cross-sectional, cohort studies, by sharing experiences, challenges, and solutions. The Introduction should present the context and its justification; the Methods should include the adopted procedures, participating audience, performed measurements, challenges and solutions; the Results should include the main general results of the study; and the Discussion should present its implications, in what position is the article situated compared to the other researches, and should include its strengths and limitations (maximum of 3,400 words).
  • Articles for discussion: the article shall receive comments and analyses from different authors as consensus/dissensus. This modality takes place after editors’ invitation (2,000 words at most);
  • Brief communications: short reports of the original research results. In general, they are briefer analyses with a brief discussion of results (maximum of 1,000 words, 2 tables/figures and up to 6 references);
  • Letters for the editor: comments from readers on the papers published in the RBE (from 500 to 700 words).

The words count includes Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion (title page, abstract, resumo, references, tables, and figures are not included in this count).

The presented manuscripts should be solely directed to the RBE, and its simultaneous presentation in another journal is not allowed. Information and concepts present in the articles, as well as the veracity of research content, are the authors’ entire responsibility.

Articles published by the RBE are under the BY-CC Creative Commons license. Thus, the copy, adjustment, remixing, and redistribution of the material in any format and by any means, clearly indicating the eventual performed changes, is allowed. Authorship and publication credits should be properly presented, as well as the license link. When the authors publish their article in the RBE, they transfer their copyrights to the journal and grant it with the first publication right.

Each manuscript is assessed by at least two assessors designated by one of the Associated Editors (AE). The AE will be in charge of elaborating a conclusive final report to be submitted to the Editor-in-chief. In the first stage of submission, the editorial office will check if all the criteria of standards were met. The manuscript will only be sent to the AE’s assessment after complying with all the standard established by RBE.

The Brazilian Journal of Epidemiology does not charge fees for the submission of papers, nor to evaluate or publish them.

 

Approval by the Ethics Committee in Research (CEP)

All papers submitted to the RBE must have followed the recommendations of ethics in research of Declaration of Helsinki and the standards contained in the Resolutions No. 466/2012 and 510/2016 from the Brazilian Health Office (CNS, acronym in Portuguese). The approval by an Ethics Committee in Research (CEP, acronym in Portuguese) is not required for studies that analyze added data and data without people’s identification, such as those available in public domain databases. No instance is above the CEP to analyze the nature of investigation proposals, following the orientation of the Brazilian Commission of Ethics in Research, CNS, Brazilian Department of Health (CONEP/CNS/MS). The CEP that approves the investigation should be registered at the CONEP.

Submission of the CEP protocol copy is mandatory at the submission.

 

Clinical trials

The RBE supports the policies from the World Health Organization (WHO) and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) for registration of clinical trials. Thus, it recognizes the importance of these initiatives for international registration and disclosure of open-access information. Therefore, only articles of clinical trials that have received an identification number in one of the clinical trials validated for the criteria established by the WHO and ICMJE, whose addresses are available at the ICMJE website, are accepted for publication. The identification/approval number should be registered in the title page.

The entities that register clinical trials according to ICMJE criteria are:

  • Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTR)
  • ClinicalTrials.gov
  • International Standard Randomised Controlled Trial Number (ISRCTN)
  • Nederlands Trial Register (NTR)
  • UMIN Clinical Trials Registry (UMIN-CTR)
  • WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP)

 

Authorship

For definition of article authorship, the RBE follows the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals elaborated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). The authors should follow the guidelines available at http://www.icmje.org/, translated into Portuguese in the article made by Duarte and Pansani (2015), available at https://doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742015000300025.

 

Conflict of interests

All authors should manifest the existence or absence of conflicts of interests during the study conduction. Conflicts of interests may happen when authors or institutions have any sort of relations with organizations or individuals that may influence the study at issue. Examples of conflicts of interests include professional bond, consultant service provision, financing or any other kind of financial support received, shareholder participation in companies, patent possession, and received tributes. In the event of no conflict of interests, the authors should declare: “The authors report the non-existence of any kind of conflict of interests.”

The information regarding conflicts of interests should be added in the title page.

 

Statements

All authors shall agree and sign the statement of conflict of interests, the statement of copyrights, and the nonsolicitation statement.
The statements do not need to be sent during the manuscript submission. The documents will be requested by the RBE editorial office only after the manuscript approval.

 

Complementary material

Additional materials that contribute to better understand the article may be submitted by the authors. These files will be available online and should be mentioned in the text body. However, this material will not be incorporated in the article designing, and it will be published as received. If the manuscript is approved for publication, the complementary documents will not be proofread, standardized, designed or translated. Each complementary file shall have a title describing it. The authors shall transfer the files in PDF with the option Supplemental File for Review. The content of these files should not be added in the end of the manuscript. All of them should be clear enough to allow their reproduction, and the images shall be provided in high resolution.
