Political Studies Review (English version)



Published since 2010, Political Studies Review is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal whose scope is multidisciplinary from political science, sociology, anthropology, law and philosophy. Published every six months, it brings articles by national and foreign authors, either in numbers organized as a compilation, or in the form of thematic dossiers, in which the unity is verified by the presence of the political element in the analyzes and interpretations. All issues also bring an extra section, dedicated to interviews, essays, art reviews and/or critical reviews of academic works published up to 2 (two) years ago. According to the result of Qualis Periódicos 2017-2020 / CAPES, Political Studies Review, linked to the Graduate Program in Political Science at the Fluminense Federal University, maintained its A4 grade and its position among the country's cientific journals.

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:

> 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.
