BAR - Brazilian Administration Review

BAR is a scholarly journal on business and public administration published quarterly since 2004 by ANPAD (Brazilian Academy of Management). BAR is a fully open-access online journal that abides by the principles of COPE – Committee on Publication Ethics for scholarly publication. BAR is available in most indexing services, including SCOPUS.

BAR’s mission is to advance scholarly knowledge on management and organizational theories so as to assist business and public administration worldwide by means of the global dissemination of conceptual and empirical studies developed in Brazil and other countries.

The journal publishes conceptual and empirical studies within the broad interests of business and public administration. Theoretical and methodological perspectives are welcome as long as they are insightful also for practice. BAR documents should not focus on a particular country/region and must convey theoretical, methodological and applied advancements to the frontiers of scholarly knowledge on a global scale. BAR’s editorial scope does not include teaching cases or purely applied practitioner-oriented material.

BAR's target audience is the global scholarly community in all interests of business and public administration.


Guide to authors

BAR now accepts submissions in Portuguese as well


BAR Community, we have news!

As of August 18th, 2021, BAR will accept submissions of articles in Portuguese, in addition to English, as is our tradition. This change in criteria did not change our focus on internationalization and an increase in the impact factor.

However, if submissions in Portuguese are accepted for publication, the authors will be responsible for translating and submitting an English version of the article, maintaining the official language of publication of the journal. We believe that publishing in English guarantees greater international visibility (Guide to Authors).

Our purpose is to encourage submissions to BAR, facilitating the process and reducing costs for Brazilian authors.​

We look forward to receive your submissions!
