The articles cannot have been previously published, in whole or in part, in any other journal (even if in modified format), neither be under consideration for publication in other media. This rule applies for both abridged or unabridged versions and to excerpts of the article.
Meridiano 47 is a medium vehemently committed to good practices in scientific publication, including in what concerns the full originality of published works and also the due reference of arguments, data, and excerpts of texts of other authors or the article's own authors.
The editorial analysis process may extend up to 45 days. The editorial analysis of all submitted contributions takes place in three stages:
Tables and figures
The use of images (flowcharts, maps, tables, and figures) must be restricted to the essential for the illustration of arguments developed in the text. This means that they should not reproduce information mentioned in the text and should not be poorly explored in the development of the central argument of the article. All images must be provided in .JPEG format with at least 300 dpi resolution. Only black & white images will be accepted. Indicate in the body of the text the exact insertion point of the images. In the case of images not produced by the author, the submission must include, as a complementary document, a formal authorization signed by the author/editor of the image for its use and reproduction in the article submitted to Meridiano 47;
Meridiano 47 will include in its articles the ORCID ID number (http://orcid.org/) of the author(s). The ORCID ID number is mandatory for all of the authors;
The Title Page must contain the following information: 1. Article title; 2. Complete name of the author(s); 3. Institutional affiliation of each author; 4. Professional address of each author; 5. ORCID ID of each author, if such information is available; Keywords (4 to 6 terms, in alphabetical order); eventual acknowledgements, which shall be inserted in the article, if its publication is approved.
When necessary, acknowledgements must refer exclusively to the substantial support received by the author in the development of the research that originated the article. Acknowledgements must be inserted in the Title Page, as described previously. In case the work is approved for publication, this part will be inserted in the end of the text, in an Acknowledgments section. Acknowledgements to aids or grants, as well as acknowledgements to collaborations from colleagues, and eventual mention to the origin of an article (such as, for instance, theses) must be indicated in this section. Acknowledgement to individuals must precede the acknowledgements to institutions or agencies. Acknowledgements to the peer reviewers that examined the article are not allowed. Dedications are not allowed.
Footnotes should be avoided. When necessary, they shall be numbered sequentially and must present additional clarifications to the text.
The articles must necessarily include introduction, conclusion, and bibliographic references. In the introduction and conclusions, charts, tables or figures of any sort are not allowed. The excessive fragmentation of the text structure, by inserting more than two subheadings, should be avoided.
Availability of research data
Meridiano 47 values the availability of research data used in the articles in open-access repositories, following register standards that assure authorship, use, and citation of data, as well as of the corresponding article. The author may report great statistical series, document databases compiled by the author, great series of historical documents relevant for the development of the presented analysis, and so forth. The eventual availability of research data may be reported in the Acknowledgements section.
The authors are responsible for the accuracy of bibliographic references cited in their work.
The references may be cited in the text, as, for example, (Almeida 2004), (Almeida and Farias 2009), (Almeida, Farias, and Cunha 2009) or, for three or more authors, (Almeida et al. 2010). Two or more articles by the same authorship in the same year should be differentiated by letters, as in (Almeida 2004a), (Almeida 2004b), (Almeida and Farias 2009a), (Almeida and Farias 2009b), and so forth.
The references must be listed at the end of the text, in the Bibliographic references section, in alphabetical order of the cited work's first author's last name. If there are more than three authors, use the first author's last name followed by et al. The following examples are considered as a general guide for listing references.
