About the Journal

The Revista Foco (Interdisciplinary Studies) is an interdisciplinary scientific journal. The mission of the Foco Journal is to promote and disseminate scientific knowledge. Its aim is to add value to the work of academics and professionals through the online publication (free access) of conceptual, practical, and theoretical papers. Contributions should be original and submitted in Portuguese, English, or Spanish. Reviews are conducted by at least two ad hoc reviewers.

Its main objective is to enhance internationalization and, fundamentally, to build a new space for the international insertion and dissemination of research carried out by national and international researchers. Additionally, this journal adopts good editorial practices, through intrinsic (quality) and extrinsic (format/presentation) elements and international standards for electronic publication. Editorial management is carried out through the Open Journal Systems – OJS, software developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) research group at the University of British Columbia. Articles can be submitted in Portuguese, English, and Spanish.

As a means of standardizing authorship, the Editorial Committee of this scientific journal recommends the inclusion of the ORCID iD at the time of submission. The ORCID identifier can be obtained for free at: https://orcid.org/register. The author should accept the presentation standards of the ORCID iD and include the complete URL, preceded by "http://", in their registration, immediately after the email (for example: http://orcid.org / 0000-0002-1825-0097).
