The deadline for submitting scientific articles to the HU Revista, an open access journal and electronic publication linked to the University Hospital of the Federal University of Juiz de Fora (HU-UFJF / Ebserh), is open until March 31st, 2019. Results of investigations, original articles, literature reviews, case reports, brief communications, letters to the editor and editorials produced by students, professionals and teachers from different areas of health knowledge may be entered. The texts can be sent through the publication website.

According to the nurse Graciela Duque, who composes the editorial body, the journal intends to gather articles from researchers from all over the country. “The HU Magazine is an important instrument for the University Hospital of Juiz de Fora, but also for the Ebserh Network itself. We intend to encourage the research publication developed by students and professionals in Brazil”, she explains.


HU Revista has undergone improvements by the new editorial staff, made up of professionals from the Brazilian Hospital Services Company (Ebserh). In addition to finalizing the publication of previous editions, the collaborators worked on structuring the editorial flow. “We renewed the register of evaluators. This guarantees more efficiency and reduces the time of analysis of submitted articles “, explains the dental surgeon and member of the editorial board Rodrigo César Santiago.

For new editions, authors will also have new publishing guidelines, as well as benefit from the “Ahead of Print” (AOP) mode, which publishes the articles separately before finalizing the numbers. The objective is to advance the publication of relevant scientific results.

A new layout was also fully developed for the site and for the publication. “This makes the access more intuitive and pleasant,” adds the dental surgeon Daniel Marlière, who also composes the editorial staff.
