The author should also consult the international ethical guidelines for research involving human beings and animals such as the (Declaration of Helsinki, International Guidelines for Biomedical Research involving Human Beings - CIOMS) and Brazilian (CNS Resolution 196/96 and complementary). Such guidelines emphasize the need for ethical and scientific review of research involving human beings, aiming to safeguard the dignity, rights, safety and well-being of the research subject.

Guidelines for authors on open science

The (Open Science) movement proposes guidelines for collaborative, shared and public scientific practice. In line with the Open Science guidelines, A Geopauta adopts a series of practices, such as the open access policy, the code of good practices for editors and the use of social networks to disseminate published works. In addition, it requires the precise indication of the role of each of the authors in articles with multiple authorship, encourages the sharing of analysis datasets, instruments, statistical analysis scripts, scripts and additional materials, available in open online repositories, such as, for example,  ScieloZenodoFigshare and OSF, if they cannot be published in the work itself, and this information must be indicated in the manuscript. Consequently, the articles that communicate research should indicate and reference the availability of the contents underlying the elaboration of the research and the results obtained.
In addition, the journal encourages the publication of preprint articles on public platforms, such as  PreprintsSciELO and  Psyarxiv, so that, if necessary, they are openly discussed before being published. If the author intends to publish in preprints format, we provide the Scielo open science compliance form and, according to the Open Science statement, we indicate that files containing research data (codes, methods and other materials used and resulting from research) be made available in the manuscript itself or in an open online repository, such as  ZenodoFigshare and OSF, and the link must be disclosed in the text of the article.
