General Rules

The article's publication depends on the assent of the Editorial Board of BJFS. The submitted article has to be original. It is not allowed current or post submissions to other national or international journals. The concepts presented in the papers are on the entire responsibility of the author(s), and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the journal. The papers will be reviewed by at least two referees with technical-scientific knowledge on the field. Scientific content, proper use of grammar (Portuguese / English), statistics and scientific relevance will be assessed. Both authors and reviewers are kept anonymous during the reviewing process. The Editorial Board of the BJFS will be responsible to accept, refuse or return the article to the authors with suggestions of modifications and/or corrections of form, content, methodology, statistical analysis and references. The corrections should be done in up to 40 days from the return to the authors. In this case, the article will be reviewed by the Editors, which does not necessarily means the acceptance for publication. If after 40 days, the article is not resubmitted without a reasonable justification to the Editorial Board, the paper is automatically rejected for publication.

For each submission, the Editorial Board will try its best to communicate the editorial decision to the authors in up to 45 days.

It is not allowed total or partial plagiarism of any other reference or website. The plagiarism is verified using the software Plagium or a similar one.
