Wesley Mendes-da-Silva orcid


This is the last editorial that I am writing as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Contemporary Administration (RAC), completing my predefined voluntary pro bono mandate (2018-2021). I would like to take this moment to thank and recognize the professional work of several people with whom I’ve had the great opportunity to work and learn from during the past three years. In saying farewell to this position, I will leave you with a brief summary of the work we have performed from June 2018 to May 2021 in order to follow the editorial best practice of providing information.
