Focus and Scope

The Brazilian Journal of Development (BJD) is edit by the Brazilian Journals Publicações de Periódicos e Editora Ltda. (CNPJ 32.432.868/0001-57). Some Brazilian professors realized that the scientific research in the development area lack means of dissemination. That’s why they came up with this monthly publication of scientific articles which presents original contributions, both empirical and theoretical.

The thematic coverage of the BJD, considering its essence, covers all areas of knowledge described by CNPq, provided the research presents a contribution to development.

The BJD accepts contributions written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Our journal makes every effort to comply with good academic practices in relation to the ethical and moral conduct used for the development of research. Thus, in addition to the authors' guarantee that the article was not sent for evaluation in another journal, possible plagiarism is checked. Additionally, we require that the authors fill a complete CONSORT 2010 check list, as a condition for publishing articles from randomized studies.

Authors can find the full CONSORT check list at: www.consort-statement.org. On this site, authors can also access the checklists required for various research methods and data types, as well as two parallel group tests. We therefore demand that the article to be published must address each item on the checklist, always seeking to improve the value and relevance of published articles.
