The BOLETIM DO INSTITUTO DE PESCA (BIP), ISSN 1678-2305 (online), an open access Scientific Journal, is intended to publish original documents (Scientific Article and Scientific Note) that contribute to the expansion of knowledge in fisheries (fishing technology, fisheries biology, sociology and economy fishing), aquaculture, aquatic ecology, fish processing technology, pathology of aquatic organisms, limnology, among others areas.
Its impact factor in JCR (2019/2020) is 0.556.
All papers submitted to the BIP are evaluated preliminarily by the Editorial Board. The initial selection of manuscripts is performed after evaluation of the adequacy to the norms of submission, originality, quality and scientific merit.
Papers deemed suitable are then sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editorial Board will take care that the reviewers of each article are compulsorily of different institutions of origin of those authors.
The evaluation process used by the Editorial Board of Instituto de Pesca is the system by peers "blind review", i.e., confidentiality of the identity of both authors and reviewers, which will be maintained throughout the process.
The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE BULLETIN
The Boletim do Instituto de Pesca will still accept publications in English ONLY.
In case of non-native authors from countries that speak these languages, the article must be reviewed by a specialist. Translation costs will be borne by the authors.
A volume is published annually with 4 issues. Eventually, special volumes are published.
Published papers present results from both fundamental as well as applied or directed research. Emphasis is given to results on interdisciplinary contributions, on innovative methodological or technical developments, on items with wide general applicability, and on local or regional experiments that can be a source of inspirations to other regions.
In terms of editorial management, the Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform of the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is used, an editorial system that is used in Brazil under the name of Electronic Journaling System (Sistema Eletrônico de Editoração de Revistas - SEER) customized by the Brazilian Institute of Information in Science and Technology (Instituto Brasileiro de Informação em Ciência e Tecnologia – IBICT).
Manuscript submission should be done ONLY online, by PKP plataform (link: https://www.pesca.sp.gov.br/boletim/index.php/bip/about/submissions).
