MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES
Submitted manuscripts, since according to the standards for publication described below, will be sent to two ad hoc consultants or members of the Editorial Board for blind review. Two favorable opinions indicate final acceptance. In case of conflicting opinions, a third one shall be sought.
Manuscripts to be evaluated aiming at publishing should be submitted exclusively through the internet:
Registering in the link above is the first step to be taken. In the case of articles with multiple authors, the names of all authors should be necessarily included in submission metadata. In order to include more than one author, click on "add author"and the field will be available to be filled.
Every single text submitted to the journal must be accompanied by a letter signed by all authors, where the intention of submission or resubmission of the work for publication and statement of responsibility for the ethical aspects and authorship of the work is made clear. Besides, it must be stated that the work neither has ever been presented in full in any other media, nor is under evaluation by another journal. That letter must also contain authorization for reformulation of language, if needed, in order to meet the journal’s standards. Authors should disclose conflicts of interest (professional, financial, direct or indirect benefits) that may influence the research results. Similarly, the authors must disclose all funding sources involved in the work. They must also ensure that privacy and anonymity of those involved were respected. All complementary documents must be attached by electronic publishing, as image or text file.
Articles resulting from research involving human beings and/or relating to interventions (diagnostic or therapeutic) must be accompanied by a copy of the Research Ethics Committee letter of approval of the host institution or other entity accredited by the National Health Council, in accordance with Resolution 196/96 of the aforementioned Committee. In texts containing data from clinical cases, it is necessary to obtain a Letter of Consent. These documents must be attached in the field "add additional document"in the metadata.
This journal uses a double-blind review process, therefore preserving the identity of authors and consultants. Authors should use all possible means to prevent authorship identification of the manuscript.
Manuscripts submitted will initially be considered by the Editorial Board. If not suited to the standards or scope of the journal, they will be excluded from the system and their authors informed. Otherwise they will be forwarded to peer review, according to the following procedures:
1. Referral to two ad hoc consultants or two members of the Editorial Board for blind review.
ASPECTS TO BE OBSERVED
LManuscripts may be written in Portuguese, Spanish, French or English and their abstracts may be in Portuguese, English or Spanish; papers in French shall also include an abstract in that language. The texts must follow the editorial guidelines set forth by this journal, adapted from the 5th edition of the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Publication Manual, 2001( www.apastyle.org ):
• Format: Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP file format (*.doc) or OpenOffice 1.0 Text Document (*.sxw);

Once it is an electronic journal, the feature footnotes should be used only in relevant cases which do not fit in the logical sequence of the text. They shall be put on the footer, numbered.
Bibliographic references without direct quotation must be incorporated into the text, in parentheses, following the pattern:
- Up to two authors: last name(s) and year of publication in all citations;
Ex: Dor (1991) or Ansermet and Borie (2007) or (Dor, 1991, p. 35) or (Dor, 1991, pp. 35-37) or (Ansermet & Borie, 2007, p. 154).
- Three to five authors: list all authors in the first citation; the lead author followed by "et al."(and others) and year in subsequent citations;
Example: first citation:
Alves Filho, Cerra Maia, Sacomano Neto e Bonadio (2004)
(Alves Filho, Cerra Maia, Sacomano Neto, & Bonadio, 2004)
Alves Filho et al. (2004) (Alves Filho et al., 2004)

Multiple works by the same author should be organized by date, the most recent last. Use lowercase letters after years to distinguish publications in the same year. Example: (Freud, 1905/1996a), (Freud, 1908/1996b) or Rogers (1973a), Rogers (1973b).
