|Norms for the Publication of Papers|
The magazine, Cadernos Metrópole, a semestral periodical, focuses on the debate of the issues linked to urbanization processes and the urban question itself, in the different forms it assumes in the contemporary reality. The publication is aimed at the academic community in general, especially those in the areas of Architecture and Urbanism, Urban and Regional Planning, Demography and Social Sciences. The magazine publishes researchers’ and scholars’ texts on the urban theme that engage in dialogue and debate regarding the effects of the socio-spatial transformations on the shaping of the politico-institutional system of cities, and the challenges facing the adoption of management models based on urban governance.
The articles received by the publication must be original, and submitted to appraisal by the members of the Editorial Board or ad hoc consultants, who issue an opinion. The anonymity of both the author and the reviewer are preserved.
The final selection of the text approved for publication by the reviewers is under the responsibility of the scientific editors, who take into account the quantity of articles to be published in each number and whether the theme is opportune.
The authors are communicated regarding the final decision, and the magazine has no commitment to return unpublished originals of works.
The articles may be written in Portuguese or Spanish. Articles presented in other languages will be translated into Portuguese.
The magazine is not in a position to pay royalties to the authors, nor to distribute reprints. Each author receives three copies of the number in which his/her work is published.
