  • The authors must confirm that there is no conflict of interest, for example, financial or personal relationships with third parties, that could influence the study results.
  • The authors declare that the submitted article is original and has not been previously published or considered for publication in another journal. If accepted, it will not be published elsewhere, regardless of language.
  • The article is written in accessible language and free from terms that imply any discrimination between individuals. We recommend impersonal writing, free from slang and seeking gender neutrality whenever possible.
  • The authors identified the sources of financial support for the research and the preparation of the article, briefly describing the role of each sponsor. If there is no financial support, this has been declared.
  • The authors indicated two reviewers with expertise in areas related to the work. It is suggested that the authors indicate people who do not have a frequent professional relationship, contributing to an impartial evaluation. We emphasize that these indications do not imply that these reviewers will send the article. It is only up to the Associate Editor to indicate the reviewers, guaranteeing a blind evaluation by peers.
  • The manuscript was written following the rules described in Guidelines for Authors.

Author Guidelines

The article must be submitted using MS Word, pages in A4 format, and lower, upper, right, and left margins must be 2 cm (narrow) and with pages and lines numbered sequentially. Articles submitted in Portuguese or English will be accepted for peer review. As of 2022, all articles approved by BIOENG will be published only in English, and the authors are responsible for producing the language version for publication

Submission of a manuscript on BIOENG inferred that the research study has not been published anywhere before, and is not under consideration for publication anywhere else. In addition, the publication has to be approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities, who appeared explicitly at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will disclaim any liability when there are compensation claims.

Authors who want to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere must require permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format. Also, authors must include a statement that such permission has been granted when submitting their research papers. Any data, material, or piece of study received without such statement will be considered by the publisher as originated from the authors.

We encourage the authors to visit our Declaration of Ethics and Good Publication Publications page, in particular the Code of Conduct and its Good Practice Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
