[ENGLISH] Submissions


Século XXI: ESPM's Journal of International Relations is structured into three sections: Dossier, Scientific Articles, and Reviews.

  1. The Editorial Committee of the Século XXI: ESPM's Journal of International Relations accepts original and unpublished works (authored individually or collectively) in the form of scientific articles effectively linked to research. Non-original works (that is, previously published) will only be accepted in the following cases: a) out of print or difficult for Brazilian researchers to access; b) texts must be explicitly linked to research in the field of International Relations; c) translation into a language different from the original; d) other relevant and justified circumstances or reasons will be at the discretion of the Editorial Committee to decide on publication, with a view to promoting scientific debate in the country.

  2. Contributions can be submitted in three languages: Portuguese, Spanish, or English.

  3. Submission is made exclusively through the journal's submission system.

  9. Received works are initially analyzed by the Editorial Team, which reserves the right to define if they are in line with the profile of the journal. If not, the authors are informed of the decision taken. If positive, the work is sent to two evaluators, who may be members of the Editorial Board or external evaluators. After analyzing the evaluations, the Editorial Committee makes its decision considering the following options: accept; accept with revisions; resubmit for evaluation; or reject. The decision is then informed to the authors.
