Only article written in ENGLISH, and the Authors should send a Statement that the Article was revised by a specialist in English Grammar.

"Manuscripts with agronomic subjects are expected to contain a substantial amount of basic plant biology. Merely agricultural approaches will not be considered for publication."



CeN-Ecology publishes papers on basic and applied ecology. Ecology, by definition, is the study of interactions between living organisms and the environment. The journal is focused on ecological questions, and tangent studies will not be considered. Studies on physiological responses of organisms to their abiotic environments, evolutionary ecology, population and communities structure and dynamics, intra- and interspecific interactions, ethology, landscape ecology, and ecosystems processes and services are common examples within the scope of CeN-Ecology. Studies that are not purely ecological, but that still retain a clean relationship with ecology can be considered (e.g. agroecology). In order to ensure an accurate process of peer review, the authors are encouraged to submit the study data along with their manuscript.

CeN-Genetics - publishes articles on basic and applied genetics. Studies on quantitative genetics, molecular genetics, microbiology genetics, plant genetics, animal genetics, human genetics, and mutagenesis are examples of topics within the scope of CeN-Genetics. Studies that are not purely genetic but still have a clear connection to genetics can be considered. To ensure a detailed review process, authors are encouraged to submit the analyzed data with the manuscript.

This Section will accept works on the areas of Physical Geography with emphasis on Exacts and Earth Sciences.


CeN - Mathematics publishes articles in the areas of pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Works in algebra, analysis, geometry, topology, mathematical physics, numerical analysis, discrete mathematics, combinatorial analysis are examples of topics within the scope of this section. Works in sub-areas or related areas to those mentioned above will also be considered, as long as the focus is on the mathematical model involved. It should be noted that the Ciência e Natura journal has an Education section, so submissions with a focus on Mathematical Education, Teaching, or Learning in Mathematics or related topics are not within the scope of the Mathematics section.


CeN - Physics publishes articles on both basic and applied physics. Physics, by definition, is the branch of science concerned with the properties of matter and energy and the relationships between them. It is based on mathematics and traditionally includes mechanics, optics, electricity and magnetism, acoustics, and heat. Modern physics, based on quantum theory, includes atomic, nuclear, particle, and solid-state studies. The journal is focused on physics issues, and tangential studies will not be considered. Studies that are not purely in physics but still have a clean relationship with physics can be considered (for example, statistical physics, nanotechnology, and quantum computing). To ensure an accurate peer review process, authors are encouraged to submit study data along with the manuscript.


CeN - Statistics publishes methodological and applied articles that present original and unpublished contributions with regard to the areas and sub-areas of Probability and Statistics. Manuscripts that do not have a predominance of the aforementioned area in their content will not be considered. Articles written in Portuguese and English are accepted, as long as they are accompanied by a Declaration from a specialized reviewer.
