Focus and Scope

The Brazilian Journal of Health Review (BJHR), edited by the Brazilian Journals Publicações de Periódicos e Editora Ltda. (CNPJ 32.432.868/0001-57), arose with the perception of some Brazilian professors that the researches of the health area lack means of dissemination of scientific researches. This is a bimonthly publication whose objective is to disseminate knowledge in the health area through the publication of scientific articles that present original contributions, both empirical and theoretical.

The thematic coverage of BJHR, considering its essence, covers all areas of knowledge described by CNPq, provided the research presents a contribution to the health area.

BJHR accepts contributions written in Portuguese, English or Spanish.
