The Acta Amazonica is the official scientific publication of the
Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia - INPA. Acta Amazonica is a
multidisciplinary scientific journal publishing works from international
and national collaborators, which undergo revision by peer reviewers, in
Portuguese, Spanish, and English, before publication.
Since 1971, the journal has been publishing scientific results and
findings from research of the Amazon. In its 32 years of existence, it
has been publishing without interruption: from 1971 to 1975 it was
edited three times a year; between 1976-1982 it was a quarterly; between
1983-1996, after changing to a new and smaller format, it was published
at least once a year, and since 1997, it has reverted to being a
quarterly, namely, March, June, September and December.
Acta Amazonica publishes original scientific papers about Amazonia in
the form of articles, notes or other sections, the last including
recensions, interviews and reader´s letters, according to the following
norms: papers with more than one author must be accompanied by a letter
confirming that all authors agree with the submission of the paper. The
paper must not have been published or submitted to another periodical.
Article manuscripts are submitted to two referees who should be
specialists well acquainted with the subjects dealt with, and assent of
the editor-in-chief. The papers shall be sent for appreciation without
identifying the author´s name, but referees could choose to identify the
authorship of their opinions. The final revised manuscript should
include the referee’s suggestions or be accompanied with a letter
explaining the reasons that these were not accepted. Papers in
Portuguese, Spanish and English are accepted.
