Manuscript criteria and information

 The Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research is a peer-reviewed electronic journal published monthly by the Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica (ABDC).

Submission of a manuscript to the Brazilian Journal implies that the data have not been published previously and will not be submitted for publication elsewhere while the manuscript is under review.

The following represent “prior publication”: any printed material in excess of 500 words describing results or methods of a submitted/in press manuscript; published tables or illustrations that duplicate the content of a manuscript; electronic manuscripts or posters available via the Internet. When part of the material in a manuscript has been presented as a preliminary communication or in an unrefereed symposium, this should be cited as a footnote on the title page and a copy should accompany the submitted manuscript.


Author Identification – ORCID

BJMBR and Scielo endorse ORCID and requires that all corresponding authors provide an ORCID iD when submitting a manuscript. We encourage coauthors to register and use their ORCID as well. 

We publish the corresponding author’s ORCID iD as well as any ORCIDs provided by coauthors if the manuscript is accepted. We participate in the auto-update feature implemented by Crossref such that when a paper is published, the authors’ ORCIDs are deposited and subsequently used to update each author’s ORCID record.
