Prof. Dalmo Correia Filho defends greater appreciation of Brazilian journals

 

Dalmo Correia Filho, Editor of the Journal of the Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine (RSBMT) is concerned about the policies regarding scientific publications in national journals. "It is a fact that regulation and appraisal organs that classify national scientific journals put enormous pressure over graduation courses (masters, doctorate and post-doc), requiring that, in order to be better appraised and qualified, and the researchers must publish in international journals. The impact factor is simply what is being considered, while research supports is in general drastically reduced”, he regrets. “Researches published in national journals cannot be inhibited. On the contrary, they should be validated and valued. And courses cannot be harmed for this”, says the editor.
