Guidelines for publishing manuscripts
Estudos e Pesquisas em Psicologia is a quarterly electronic journal hosted at the site http://www.revispsi.uerj.br, created in order to publish inedited texts on Psychology and cognate areas in the form of articles, brief reports of researches, summaries of thesis and reviews. Reflections from the several areas of knowledge that compose the Human and Social Sciences and that may contribute effectively to the deepening of the issues concerning Psychology, are also welcome. This way, the Editorial Committee, comprised by teachers of the Instituto de Psicologia da UERJ (Rio de Janeiro State University), plans to be in consonance with the perspective that considers the “psy” knowledges and practices as a field crossed by other knowledges and practices.
The journal accepts articles in the following sections:
The manuscripts submitted are directed to two ad hoc reviewers and returned to the authors when the evaluations appoint the need of corrections, changes, as well as when they are rejected.
The Editorial Committee reserves itself the right to make short modifications or cuts in the work, aiming to adjust it to the journal patterns. None of these modifications will result in changes to the content of the text. The Editorial Committee also reserves itself the right to make decisions concerning special cases, in order to keep the journal quality and periodicity.
