Edição Especial da RSP - Governos e Covid-19 (submissões apenas em inglês ou espanhol) (atualizado em: 10 de agosto de 2020)

Announcement:  Special Edition of RSP - "Governments and Covid-19"

Recently, the pandemics of Covid-19 called governments from all around the world to fight the same unprecedented crisis. This RSP (Revista do Serviço Público) understands that, at this moment, the debate about how governments face the pandemics deserves a higher standard.

We have just launched a call for papers for our special edition with this main theme: Governments and Covid-19, with a fast track submission process. Articles should be submitted in English or Spanish. The submitted article will be reviewed in 5 weekdays. Papers accepted will be available online as articles-in-print (online first) soon after acceptance and published together on September, 1st. 

There will be only two rounds of reviews. Decisions will either be a rejection or a conditional acceptance, implying only minor revisions or expositional changes to papers before acceptance. Resubmissions will not be returned to referees for further rounds of comments. Authors will be required to return the paper for revisions within 1 week after receiving the conditional acceptance (though we will make exceptions for emergencies that arise to delay revisions).

Direct link for the submissions in English: click here.  You can also submit it under the Portuguese menu.

In case you have difficulties with the submission process for this specific special edition, send a message to claudio dot shikida at enap dot gov dot br.

Update: You should have in mind that RSP will not receive submissions or send them to reviewers after August, 18th (4 PM, Brasília local time).
