About

The Journal of Biology is a scientific journal created by initiative of academics from different Brazilian universities to publicize studies from all areas of Biology, at no cost to authors and readers. We accept submissions in English or Portuguese, which will be peer-reviewed. After the conclusion of the editorial process, the manuscript is published immediately, and assigned a volume, which is published bianually.

The journal has three objectives: 1) to promote scientific dialog through open access content; 2) to bridge the gap between the academic and non-academic communities; 3) to train undergraduates and graduate students in writing and reviewing of scientific texts. Both didactic and journalistic aspects are valued by the journal. To ensure the quality of the published material, peer-reviewing is supported by reviewing guides, which are available for both reviewers and authors.

The journal does not hold copyright, these belong to the author. We intend to do not create barriers to access published material and achieve more intensely our objective of disseminating science.

Revista da Biologia (Journal of Biology) is indexed in Google Scholar, Latindex (18884), Dedalus (001 710 215) and CrossRef (DOI 10.7594) systems.

Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal following the instructions described in the Writing Guidelines section.
