Biography Summary

* Required to complete the registration.

Definitions for each type of treatment:

Collect: During registration, the author provides data that are collected, archived, and stored in the journal's database. We do not collect sensitive data. Registration is done voluntarily, and the password is personal and non-transferable.

Use: We use some of the collected data to insert into the formatted articles that will be published. This includes: full name, institution, email (if authorized by the authors), and title. Such data are evaluation criteria for journals, by CAPES/Qualis and indexers. Current indexers can be checked here.

Use of Email: Emails are sent regarding the editorial flow, review statements, published numbers and articles, special calls, guideline changes, and editors. The use of email in the published article is done with the author's permission.

Access: We access the data when editing/updating metadata before publishing to avoid conflicts in depositing the DOI, Orcid id, and Lattes Curriculum.

Transmit: To ensure digital preservation, the journal automatically transmits published issues to the LOCKSS System and Cariniana Network. It is also transmitted for indexing in repositories by the Open Archives Initiative – OAI.

Anonymize: To ensure blind evaluation, all articles sent for evaluation are checked for personal names in properties. If names are found, Word's tool is used to inspect the document and remove properties. The same procedure is adopted when the reviewer annotates the article, and it is necessary to send it to the authors.

Process: Submission data are processed in an XML file or sent by the system to Crossref to generate a DOI number, providing a persistent link for the article and its individualization.

Archive: Registration and submission data, both published and those rejected and archived, remain in the journal's database. In the former case, they are transmitted to LOCKSS and the Cariniana Network according to the Preservation Policy.

Store: Registration and submission data, both those published and those rejected and archived, and registrations that have been requested for deletion, are stored in the journal's database.

Delete: Registration data are not permanently deleted; they remain undefined, or access may be blocked, in the case of an author who committed plagiarism and/or self-plagiarism, as defined in the Plagiarism Policy. Submission data are not deleted to maintain the article's history and issue statements by authors and reviewers, in accordance with Article 16 of Law no. 13.709/18. Document properties of articles are deleted to maintain the integrity of blind peer review. At any time, users are free to request deletion from the Journal's database and thus no longer receive communications from it.

Evaluate: Submission data are evaluated for correct completion to avoid conflicts with DOI, Orcid id, Lattes Curriculum, and indexing. Every user can request an information update, as well as make them in the edit profile.

Data Holder Requests

Any and all requests from data holders can be made through the email:

  • Some possible requests include: email changes, name corrections due to misspelling, title, institution, city, country, among others.

Journal Registration

Registration with the Journal is free, personal, and non-transferable. The Editorial Team is not authorized to register users, except for reviewers after accepting the sent invitation. In both cases, passwords are personal.

Sensitive Data and Data Collection

We affirm that data collection is based on good practices and good faith, and on the principles of the LGPD (General Data Protection Law), and we do not collect sensitive data.

Use of Images in Articles

To ensure the copyright of images featuring people, photographs, tables, and figures, the journal evaluates every image and source provided by the authors. Without proper authorization, it will not be published in the article.

User Consent - Readers, Authors, Reviewers

Given all the above, and being aware of the stages and consequences of personal data processing, authors agree with the use of their personal data for purposes explicitly stated in this PRIVACY AND FREE AND INFORMED CONSENT TERM, in a free, informed, and transparent manner.

It should also be clarified that this TERM may undergo changes, according to alterations in the LGPD, or forms of treatment by the Journal's controller, and if any changes occur, they will be widely disclosed.
