Noise monitoring in the city of São Luís, Brazil
Keywords:Noise. Traffic. Vegetation.
The noise generated by vehicular traffic is a major source of discomfort for urban residents and directly affects their quality of life. This study performed the monitoring of urban noise in the city of São Luís, Brazil. The data were collected at 25 sampling points throughout the city over a period of 6 months—1 week per month from Monday to Sunday between the hours of 11:00 and 13:00. The results showed that 23 points were above the limits established by NBR 10151/00. The analysis of variance showed significant differences between the points. Therefore, it is evident that the population is exposed to high levels of noise capable of generating public health problems. The two points within the NBR limits were recorded in an area with dense vegetation, showing the importance of the preservation of the vegetation.

Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An Editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the Author.

Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that Authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected Reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
