Albuquerque: journal of history and ethical behavior in research and its dissemination


Albuquerque: journal of history is a publication committed to the establishment, dissemination and defense of ethical behavior in conducting research, including its dissemination through articles, essays, interviews, reviews and other textual modalities, as well as in all its editorial processes.

Albuquerque: journal of history is organized from his/her editors, section editors, editorial board and advisory board, coming from institutions in different regions of Brazil and other parts of the globe. For the publication of the journal, we count on the authors, as well as anonymous reviewers who aim to ensure the relevance of the publication and the quality of the texts that compose it.

Editors, including those in the section, assume the responsibility of accepting and/or rejecting texts received by the journal, considering the importance, originality and adherence of contributions, accumulating efforts to guarantee the quality of the published material, integrity from the collection, the journal's memory. They are also responsible for the dialogue with the councils, with a view to the constant improvement of the magazine, and for the publication of necessary corrections, retractions, errata or apologies. They are also the ones who conduct the submissions, whether those for current or special issues, in order to guarantee confidentiality throughout the process, without any identification of both authors and authors, as well as referees, removing any influence of order staff in the publishing process. In case of suspicion of bad faith, both of the texts already published and those that are in press, the editors / publishers follow the guidelines of COPE (Committee on Publicantion Ethics), giving opportunity to the defense of complaints, all being they were investigated (after all, Albuquerque: journal of history is responsible for keeping all documentation). Finally, it should be noted that editors and publishers act in a transparent and balanced manner in the exercise of their tasks, without discrimination by gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic and geographical origin, generation, religion or political beliefs, striving for respectful coexistence between those and those that are different.
