About the Blog

The Brazilian Research and Studies Blog (BRaS Blog) provides a space for researchers and students focusing on Brazil to publish their research and opinions to a broader audience. The BRaS Blog has an interdisciplinary outlook integrating human, social, and applied social sciences. We welcome opinion articles, essays, research notes, or summaries with a research focus on Brazil. The BRaS Blog’s purpose is to open room for debate about academic thematics with a more accessible approach. The aim is to present scientific discussions about Brazil favoring the democratization of knowledge access. BRaS-Blog publishes content in English. Authors should submit texts in English, and in some cases, the Blog accepts submissions in Portuguese under the commitment of presenting the corresponding translation. In both cases, our Editorial Board will review and approve all text before publishing. Note that all texts in BRaS-Blog are available free of charge and do not require any subscription.
