Abbreviated title: Braz. J. Anal. Chem.
BrJAC is dedicated to the diffusion of significant and original knowledge in all branches of Analytical Chemistry, and is addressed to professionals involved in science, technology and innovation projects at universities, research centers and in industry.
Manuscripts submitted for publication in BrJAC, either from universities, research centers, industry or any other public or private institution, cannot have been previously published or be currently submitted for publication in another journal. BrJAC publishes original, unpublished scientific articles and technical notes that are peer reviewed in the double-blind way.
In addition to publishing scientific articles, reviews and technical notes, the goal of BrJAC is also to discuss trends and needs in Analytical Chemistry through opinion editorials, points of view, letters, and interviews with renowned senior investigators.
Brief history of BrJAC
BrJAC is the first Brazilian scientific journal dedicated to all branches of Analytical Chemistry. It was launched on June 18, 2010 to fulfill an idealistic purpose of a group of people to achieve actual academic-industrial integration towards innovation and technical-scientific development. This is reflected in the composition of the BrJAC’s Editorial Board, which brings together professionals of the analytical chemistry field who work in academia, private companies and public institutions. In its ten years of existence, completed in 2020, BrJAC has shown an increasing curve in scientific quality and worldwide visibility.
BrJAC Young Talent in Analytical Chemistry Award
In 2019, BrJAC created the "Young Talent in Analytical Chemistry" award to recognize outstanding researchers in Analytical Chemistry who are younger than 35 years old at the award date.
This award will be offered annually at events related to analytical chemistry, such as the ENQA and the Analitica Latin America Congress, which take place in alternate years. The award will consist of a merit recognition diploma and a registration voucher for the national event on analytical chemistry (ENQA or Analitica Latin America Congress) subsequent to the award. The choice of the researcher to be awarded will be made by a committee designated by the Editor-in-Chief of BrJAC.
Submission of manuscripts by authors must be done online through the Manuscript Manager System. Manuscripts must be prepared according to the BrJAC’s Guidelines for Author available for download at the top of this page. Manuscripts in disagreement with the BrJAC's guidelines are not accepted for revision.
Manuscript Peer Review System
As evaluation criteria, the reviewers employ originality, scientific quality and contribution to the knowledge in the field of analytical chemistry, the theoretical foundation and bibliography, the presentation of relevant and consistent results, compliance to the journal's guidelines, and the clarity of writing and presentation.
