II. Political Studies Review does not charge fees for submission or for evaluating articles.

III. A preliminary assessment is carried out upon receipt of the submission. Before submitting, we ask that the author check that his manuscript follows the guidelines below:

3.1. As for the guarantee of double-blind peer review, the complete anonymity of the manuscript must be ensured before submission. Therefore, we ask that the author's name not appear in the submitted document.

3.2. As for the required degree, we condition the possibility of submission to the doctor's degree. In cases of co-authorship, the first author must have a doctor's degree.

3.3. As for the data necessary for submission, information on the professional biography of all authors of the article must be sent, in a separate file, at the same time as submission. We recognize the sending of such data as necessary for acceptance of the submission. The professional biography data of all authors that must be made available are:

> Full name;

> Area and institution with the highest degree;

> Position and current institutional insertion;

> Link (link) to the ORCID identity;

> Electronic mail (email).

4. As for the Summary, we consider such guidelines for the preparation of the Summary and Abstract as necessary conditions:

> Summary of 180 to 250 words, followed by 5 to 8 Keywords in Portuguese;

> Abstract of 180 to 250 words followed by 5 to 8 Keywords in English;

> Both the Summary and the Abstract must summarize the following information: Purpose; Method; Results; Conclusions of the document (ABNT NBR 6028-1990).

5. As for the Style, the texts of the articles must be written with the following characteristics:

> Conciseness and clarity;

> .doc format (Microsoft Word);

> Document margins with 3 cm (top, bottom, right and left);

> Text with 1.5 spacing (including bibliographic references)

> Single-spaced footnotes;

> Body text justified;

> Font Times New Roman, size 12;

> Unnumbered pages;

> The title of the article must follow the left margin of the document;

> Neither the title of the article nor the titles of its sections should be written in full in capital letters;

> The titles and subtitles of the article sections must be numbered, with the exception of the Introduction/Presentation, Conclusion and Bibliographical References sections, which must not be numbered;

> The use of footnotes should be minimal and restricted to when it is appropriate to explain and expand the argument, and should not be used to make bibliographic references;

> The numbering of footnotes must be consecutive, in Arabic numerals and must be connected to the body of the text, so that additions and deletions automatically update all notes throughout the text;

> Footnotes should be placed after punctuation.

6. As for the References, they should be listed at the end of the text, in alphabetical order by author's last name, in the section entitled Bibliographical References and using the parameters and examples of the Chicago Manual of Style.

7. As for the Citations, they must observe the author-date system using the parameters and examples of the Chicago Manual of Style.

IV. As for sending manuscripts, submissions must be made electronically, through the REP platform. To submit a manuscript, authors must register on the platform, provide the requested data and follow the recommended guidelines. For this, it will be necessary to present the researcher number. To obtain it, it is necessary to register on the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) platform.

V. Regarding the open access policy, REP does not charge for the submission and processing of manuscripts and guarantees open access, charging for access to articles. Thus, guided by the principle that making scientific knowledge public and freely available contributes to the worldwide democratization of knowledge, the REP adopts the policy of free and immediate access to its content.
