When submitting your manuscript send, as your last supplementary file, the following information:

11. Contribution of authority

The list of authors should accurately illustrate who contributed to the work and how. All those listed as authors should qualify for authorship according to the following criteria: i) have made substantial contributions to conception and design, or acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; ii) been involved in drafting the manuscript or revising it critically; iii) given final approval of the version to be published and iv) agreed to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved.

AIGEO adopt the Contribution Roles Taxonomy (CRediT).

12. Funding information

13. Conflict of interest

A conflict of interest is a situation in which the author tends to be unduly influenced (or biased) by a secondary interest. Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise that may be perceived as influencing an author's objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. Examples of potential sources of conflict of interest are: Ownership of patents or stocks; Membership in a company's board of directors; Membership in a company's advisory board or committee; Consulting or receiving a company's speaker fees. If authors have no conflict of interest to declare, they must declare this at the time of submission. The corresponding author is responsible for reviewing this policy with the other authors.

14. Data availability statement

The Anuário do Instituto de Geociências expects data supporting the paper's results to be archived in an appropriate public repository. Authors must provide a data availability statement to describe the availability or the absence of shared data. When data have been shared, authors must explain how the data can be accessed by providing a link to the repository they have used. They must include a persistent identifier (e.g., a DOI for the data or an accession number) from the data repository and provide any relevant citations for the data they have shared. The scripts and other programs used to generate the analyses presented in the paper should also be publicly archived whenever possible. If sharing data compromises ethical standards or legal requirements, authors are not expected to share it.

15. Corresponding Author

Peer review and evaluation of the manuscript

16. All papers are submitted to the initial critical analysis, which includes an assessment of suitability and scope and a plagiarism check. Then, the manuscripts are sent to the Associate Editor, a specialist in the field of work. If they have scientific merit and are relevant to their area of research, the articles will be submitted to the evaluation of at least two external Ad doc consultants, one of whom is a foreigner. After completing the review of the article, the reviewers fill out an evaluation form and send their suggestions and recommendations to the Associate Editor responsible for the article, who passes it on to the authors. The work is sent to a third reviewer in case of divergent judgments.

The Anuário do Instituto de Geociências, in line with the open science practices, encourages the opening of the evaluation process if the author and reviewer make this choice. In this modality, the opinions can be disclosed before and/or together with the publication. It will be up to the author to indicate his option in the "Open Science Compliance Form". The reviewer, in turn, must inform his preference when indicating his availability.

Final Manuscript Preparation

17. After the review rounds are completed, the accepted papers are forwarded to the Text Editor, who will review the manuscript and indicate to the corresponding author the editorial recommendations (in notes in the manuscript itself).

Proofs and Reprints

18. Proof of Articles will be sent to the authors (file in PDF format) for correction before printing. Necessary changes must be handled in the proof of the PDF file.
