The Brazilian Research and Studies Blog (BRaS Blog) calls scholars, researchers and students focusing on Brazil to publish their opinion articles, essays, research notes, or summaries. We are an inter and transdisciplinary research platform for Brazilian Studies based at the University of Würzburg, Germany. We bring together and promote scientific exchange between scholars from Brazil and abroad engaged with political, social, economic, and cultural developments in Brazil.
The BRaS Blog has an interdisciplinary outlook integrating Human, Social, and applied Social Sciences. However, we are open to research notes in all areas, as long as they include a critical view of the area itself and/or of a public policy. We offer researchers a space to communicate their research and bring together scientifically informed knowledge about Brazil’s recent developments. BRaS advocates for the democratization of knowledge access, distribution, and exchange, particularly between Brazil and Europe, academic and non-academic public.
Our publications are weekly, open access, and with ISSN (2701-4924). We accept articles, research notes, opinion texts, and reviews from the most diverse Social Science themes and topics related to Brazil. People interested should submit via this form, and our Editorial Board will provide a revision before publication. The contribution must be around 1000 to 1300 words besides the references, and in English (in some cases, the Blog accepts submissions in Portuguese under the commitment of presenting the corresponding translation). Author(s) must send 3 to 6 keywords and a short bio (50 words) including name, title and affiliation, and main topics of interest.
