Brief history

The Estudos Avançados journal is a quarterly publication from the Institute of Advanced Studies (IEA) of the University of São Paulo (USP). It was launched in December 1987, and 110 issues have been published to date.

Its main proposal is to transform knowledge and criticism into a lever for social progress not only for Brazilians, but for all “developing” peoples.

With a unique editorial profile among Brazilian academic publications, Estudos Avançados publishes articles on topics of humanistic, scientific and technological culture. It also has the mission of contributing to implement and improve public policies (national, state, and municipal) by publishing studies that elucidate and provide a better understanding of what we broadly call the Brazilian reality: its achievements, impasses and contradictions.

Estudos Avançados is closely connected to the IEA, and its issues and dossiers seek to encourage transdisciplinary practices, which specialization in every branch of knowledge makes increasingly less feasible. Its purpose is to support one of the Institute's key goals: to reflect on and understand in-depth Brazil’s present to help build its future.

As an instrument of humanistic, scientific and technological culture, it is averse to any localist bias. And to freely exercise the right to broad information and coexistence with the riches of universal thought, Estudos Avançados has drawn on the most diverse sources of philosophical, scientific, and literary culture in its trajectory. In this sense, its homeland is humanity itself, said professor Alfredo Bosi (1936-2021), who directed the journal from January 1989 to August 2019 (from number 5 to number 96). “We entered deeply into this process of welcoming everything that might enrich our knowledge and our ability to think about Brazil as an active part of cultural and technological systems that transcend us and inhabit us. The journal can and should be a mirror of this ecumenical attitude,” he remarked.

Estudos Avançados will celebrate 40 years of existence in 2027, and it is with satisfaction that its editors see the validation of their initial intent to apply multidisciplinary knowledge, inside and outside the University, to the crucial problems of Brazilian society and the international community. Scientific and humanistic knowledge, as well as attention to the basic needs of our people, is the formula of each of the journal’s dossiers, as can be gleaned from the content summary of the issues published.


Compliance with Open Science

The IEA is associated with the Open Access movement and supports free access to scientific research results at the University of São Paulo. The Estudos Avançados journal has been duly evaluated and is now indexed in the SciELO database and can hold events that bring together experts for debate since the early 2000s.

In March 2004, Estudos Avançados was accepted into the SciELO Brasil Collection library. Issue no. 50, dedicated to black people in Brazil, was the first to be freely and fully available to all readers. Gradually, previous issues were also included. The complete collection became available in March 2006.

To celebrate the this event (56 issues at the time), the IEA promoted the panel “Scientific journals in the age of open access” on May 31, 2006.

The invited panelists were Abel Packer and Rogério Meneghini, from SciELO; Emir Suaiden, from the Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology (IBICT) of the Ministry of Science and Technology; Eduardo Krieger, from the Brazilian Academy of Sciences; José Fernando Perez, from PR&D Biotech; João Steiner and Alfredo Bosi, from the IEA; and Herton Escobar, from the newspaper O Estado de S. Paulo.

The first part of the event was dedicated to SciELO, and included presentations on its origins, organization and project management; the studies on bibliometrics and scientometrics it provides; the impacts of its implementation on Brazilian scientific journals; and on a model case about the performance of Estudos Avançados in the digital library.

Topics of the second part included the importance of scientific publications for research and teaching; free access as an enabler of scientific development; free access and communication as tools for scientific outreach to the press; and a model case about free access to communication sciences in Portuguese-speaking countries.

Estudos Avançados remains committed to Open Science communication practices: open access; preprints at the onset of the article production flow; transparent management of research data; availability of program codes and other materials underlying articles; transparency and gradual opening of the manuscript evaluation process; public dissemination of research and interoperability with the global flow of scientific information and knowledge.

Preprints are manuscripts ready for submission to a journal, which are lodged  either in advance by the author or at the time of submission by the author or journal at an open access web server.  Preprints are optional, meaning that when submitting the article the author must inform whether the manuscript, along with its name and URL, are to be lodged in a preprint server.

Articles submitted for publication must be unpublished in both printed or electronic media, except those available in preprint repositories, and simultaneous submission for evaluation to another journal is not permitted.

At the time of submission, the author must fill out and attach the Open Science Compliance Form, stating whether: (a) the manuscript is a preprint and, if so, its location; (b) data, program codes and other materials underlying the text of the manuscript are properly cited and referenced; and, (c) open options are accepted in the peer review process.


Ethics in publishing

In its 80th issue (2014), Estudos Avançados published a set of articles called “Integrity and scientific innovation,” coordinated by professor Sueli Gandolfi Dallari (president of USP’s Ethics Committee – 2012-2014), as a contribution to the prevalence of ethical behaviors at the University of São Paulo.

Estudos Avançados follows USP’s Code of Ethics, established by Resolution no. 4871 of October 22, 2001, that guides human relations within the University. The general ethical principles make reference to documents that have become an international consensus, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the bedrock of every democratically-inspired contemporary constitutions.

The committee in charge of defining the guidelines of USP’s Code of Ethics, headed by Professor Alfredo Bosi, states in the document’s preamble that USP adopts the inseparable principles approved by the International Association of Universities, convened by UNESCO in 1950 and in 1998, namely: 1) the right to pursue knowledge for oneself and wherever the search for truth may lead; 2) tolerance towards diverging opinions and freedom from any political interference; 3) the social obligation to promote, through teaching and research, the principles of freedom and justice, human dignity, and solidarity, and to develop mutual aid, both material and moral, at an international level. Inherent to university Ethics are the right to research, pluralism, tolerance, autonomy from political powers, as well as the duty to promote the principles of freedom, justice, human dignity and solidarity. The University must always act and speak out in the defense and promotion of human rights, including individual rights and public freedoms, social, economic, and cultural rights, and the rights of humanity.

In Article 28 of Chapter III, “Of Publications,” USP’s Code of Ethics states:

“– Members of the University are precluded from:

I – Falsifying data about their publications when preparing articles and reports;

II – Not giving credit to those who contributed to the findings of their publications;

III – Using, without mentioning the author or without his or her explicit authorization, unpublished information, opinions or data;

IV – Presenting as original any idea, discovery or illustration, whether in the form of text, image, graphic representation or any other means, that in reality is not original;

V – Falsifying data or misrepresenting its scientific interpretation;

VI – Falsifying data about their previous academic life.”

Regarding the initial steps for submitting the original, authors must state that all ethical guidelines concerning the integrity of scientific activities during the research have been respected, and inform their funding sources, such as research agencies. If applicable, they must also state that the ethical principles have been submitted to and approved by the ethics committee of their institution. Compliance with good ethical practices in research is solely responsibility of the author.

Estudos Avançados is guided by the principles of SciELO's Codes of Ethics found in the “Guide to Good Practices for Strengthening Ethics in Scientific Publication;” by the “Principles of Transparency and Good Practices in Academic Publishing” recommended by the Committee on Publication Ethics; by the principles of Directory of Open Access Journals; and by the principles of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association.

For research in a virtual environment, the document of the National Research Ethics Commission (CONEP) is used as a reference.


Focus and scope

What have a hundred issues and dozens of dossiers revealed to us in the 37 years of Estudos Avançados’ existence?

They reveal significant figures: 110 issues; 2,397 articles published; 5,156 authors; 36,302 pages; 210,000 printed copies and more than 70 million accesses to articles in the databases.

Alfredo Bosi used to say that a nation's values of justice and democracy cannot be proclaimed without an objective analysis of the material and cultural conditions of its people. That is why Estudos Avançados sought and seeks to convey knowledge that reflects the Brazilian reality. The main idea has been, from the beginning, to learn what Brazil is, what it thinks, and what it does. Above all, what it does. Bosi used Father Antonio Vieira's phrase “each person is their own actions” to confirm the verdict: How we have resolved or have not yet resolved our problems in the multiple spheres of national life.

The journal’s past and future issues and dossiers should be understood as x-rays of our material and symbolic existence. In this sense, its connection with an institute of higher research founded with clear multi- and transdisciplinary purposes is a unique characteristic that, in some aspects, makes it different from other publications of general culture.

Firstly, when creating its dossiers, the journal can make use of the most recent broad spectrum of findings from research groups working with the IEA, including specific topics of applied social sciences to themes of a strong transdisciplinary nature such as sustainable development, biotechnology applications, socio-environmental theories, and educational practices in Brazil.

Complex topics such as education, health, transportation, energy, regional conundrums such as the Amazon and the Northeast, racial problems, religions, economic thought, rural development, agrarian reform, work and unemployment, migration, nationalism and organized crime, among others, have been exhaustively addressed by advanced research centers in Brazil and abroad providing extensive information and dense interpretations in all these fields. The IEA's proposals and activities in these areas are amply acknowledged as maximally objective in primary data collection phase and highly balanced balance in the stages of interpretation, judgment and potential solutions. Professor Alfredo Bosi said: “A healthy non-partisanship has guided us, which does not mean absence of the indispensable civic passion that the challenge of public policies require.”

Another characteristic revealed by the issues and dossiers apparently points in the opposite direction, but is in fact complementary. For Bosi, Estudos Avançados is an organ of scientific and humanistic culture, and, as such, it should hold no strictly localist bias. For the journal to freely exercise the right to broad information and interact with the all the wealth of universal thought, he believed it should draw on a range of diverse sources of philosophical, scientific, and literary culture: “We went deeply into this process of receiving everything that might enrich our knowledge and our ability to think about Brazil as an active part of cultural and technological systems that transcend and inhabit us. The journal can and should be a mirror of this ecumenical attitude.” Examining our catalog, one will find texts by Hobsbawn, Derrida, Habermas, Bobbio, Gorbachev, Berlinguer, John Kenneth Galbraith, Chomsky, Starobinski, Georges Nivat, Edgar Morin, Boaventura de Souza Santos, Kenneth Maxwell, Richard Morse, Ignacy Sachs, Jacques Chonchol, Michel Vovelle, Edouard Glissant, Roger Chartier, Peter Burke, Aldo Ferrer, Luciano Cânfora, Aníbal Quijano and Frederico Mayor, among many others. The list is representative, but not exhaustive. As for Brazilian authors, Bosi said one should not mention the living, as omissions are always unforgivable, whether involuntary or voluntary. He recalled some of those who left us and whose names already belong to the history of our culture: Mário Schenberg, Leite Lopes, Alberto Carvalho da Silva, Erasmo Garcia Mendes, Raymundo Faoro, Celso Furtado, Miguel Reale, Sérgio da Costa Ribeiro, Oswaldo Elias Xidieh, José Mário Azanha, Aziz Ab’Sáber and a poet who didn't need university degrees to be one of the IEA's first visiting professors, José Paulo Paes, as he proudly used to say.

What also makes Estudos Avançados unique is its profile as a culture periodical that seeks to express itself in accessible language, avoiding an excess of technical terms, without, however, forgoing the scientific rigor that must guide published essays. In other words: the goal of high-level cultural dissemination is pursued, and in certain ways this distinguishes the publication from journals fully specialized in a specific theme and language. Its readers are a broad cross-section of academic life: graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral scholars, as well as professors and researchers with various backgrounds from within and also from outside the university milieu.

Estudos Avançados would not deserve this name (undoubtedly ambitious and perhaps compromising) if it did not contemplate the highest and purest of human creations: art. In the section dedicated to Creation, the journal has published poetry (original or translated), annotated musical scores, photos of works of contemporary art, etc.

Editorial Policy


Estudos Avançados accepts the publication of preprint articles.

A preprint is a manuscript ready for submission to a journal, lodged in reliable preprint servers before or aligned with its submission to a journal.

Using preprints is the author's choice, and it is assumed that when submitting articles to the journal through theOpen Science Compliance Form, the name of the Preprint server and the DOI of the Preprint are informed.

The journal receives preprints archived on the following servers: SciELO Preprints, Core (MLA), Zenodo, and SocArXiv. Other repositories may be considered upon analysis and approval by the EditorialBoard.

Articles submitted as preprints must also be unpublished and the evaluation process will not use doubleanonymized review process seeing the authorship is known.

Peer Review Process

Originals submitted online for consideration via SciELO or the journal's website ( areanalyzed firstly by the Editorial Board for compliance with editorial standards, internal coherence, relevance of thecontent to the journal's editorial line and contribution to knowledge innovation.

If approved, originals are sent forconsideration of the merit of their content. To this end, the peer review modelis used to ensure confidentiality as to the identity of consultants and authors.. The consultant’s opinions are then analyzed by the Editorial Board for compliance with publication rules, content and relevance. After this process,they are sent to the authors with an indication of acceptance, reformulation or rejection.

Regarding the so-called Good Editorial Practices, we follow standards of consensus and common sense. Firstly,the evaluation of the manuscripts is considered. The text must be sent to a reviewer chosen from amongresearchers of renowned competence in their field of knowledge. The consultant’s name is protected by strictconfidentiality. The articles are reviewed to ensure the integrity of the blind peer process. In the double-blindreview adopted by Estudos Avançados, neither the name of the author nor of the reviewers are revealed to eachother. The opinion – favorable or opposed, unrestricted or restricted – is sent forthwith to the person concerned. Iffavorable, the author is informed of the probable publishing timeframe. If favorable with restrictions and these areaccepted by the interested party, the new version will be re-examined by the same reviewer. The average time for these procedures varies from one to three months, depending on the promptness of the consultant.

Estudos Avançados adopts three types of peer review:

Double-blind peer review: where authors and reviewers do not know each other's identity.

Single-blind peer review: where authors reveal their identity, but the reviewers remain anonymous.

Open peer review: where authors and reviewers know each other's identity. The standard form of evaluationadopted by the journal is the double-blind.

However, in the case of preprints, it is not possible to guarantee the anonymity of the authors and, therefore, theevaluation can be single-blind or open.


Open Data

To consolidate the Open Science processes, authors are requested to share all contents (data, program codes andother materials) underlying the text, before or at the time of publication. Exceptions are allowed in cases of legaland ethical issues.

The objective is to facilitate the evaluation of the manuscript and, if approved, to contribute to the preservation andreuse of data and information, as well as the replicability of research.

For sharing, the author can use the repository of their institutions or specify relevant and certified repositories: List of repositories for deposit of SciELO research data.

Alternatively, authors may state that the data will be made available upon direct request, or that all data iscontained and discussed in the article.

The repository where the data and information are found, if any, should be cited in the text according to the Research Data Citation Guide, preferably in the methodological section, included in the list of references and inthe "Availability of Research Data" section.


Estudos Avançados does not charge authors a fee for submitting or publishing articles.
