Journal Management and Funding
RACâ€™s editorial process is highly structured, with systematic procedures intended to assist the editor-in-chief, associate editors, reviewers, and authors in the editorial process. Besides the editorial board, the journal also has an experienced office staff supporting all processes in order to assure publication quality, timeliness, and adherence to other requirements of indexing services such as Web of Science, Scopus, SciELO, and COPEâ€™s Guidelines, which RAC is a member of, and subscribes to the principles of COPE. The office staff checks submissions for originality, formatting standards, and APA Style, communicates with authors, reviewers, and editors on ordinary routines, and builds statistics from the various indexing platforms where the journal is present. The journal uses Clarivateâ€™s ScholarOne platform to manage the peer-review process, and Adobeâ€™s InDesign for article formatting and typesetting, as well as export the articles in XML format for indexers.
As part of the constantly improving editorial process, RAC has been adopting, since 2018, practices towards Open Science, such as encouraging authors to openly share data, codes, and materials from their research, as well as encouraging reviewers to adhere to Open Peer Review, by publishing alongside each articleâ€™s title page information about the editors and reviewers who contributed with the peer review process of each article, as well as fostering the practice of peer review reportsâ€™ sharing (Open Reports) under permission of editors and reviewers.
RAC is financially supported by the Publisher - ANPAD (Brazilian Academy of Management) and in 2022 it had the financial support of CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) obtained through the CNPq Call No. 15/2021 "Editorial Program".
