Scope and policy

    Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher is a biannual scientific journal based at CICS.NOVA (Centro Interdisciplinar de Ciências Sociais - Interdisciplinary Centre for the Social Sciences) in NOVA FCSH.

    Faces de Eva's eponymous research team began publishing the journal in 1999.

    Throughout the years, Faces de Eva has established itself for the diverse and transversal array of fields of knowledge that contribute to an increasingly complex and multifold understanding of the human person. Therefore, its structure reflects its concerns, scientific in nature. Its purpose is to give a voice and an echo to innovation in the theoretical fields of Gender, Feminist and Women Studies and in such a way as to retain their underlying premises whilst emphasizing people's real life experiences that allow for identification and social modelation processes. This double dimension is an cutting-edge editorial choice that originates in a scientifc approach that aims to combine theoretical and empriricist knowledge.

    Faces de Eva accepts and publishes articles in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English, thus promoting the international dissemination of its contents. It includes a wide array of sections, among which the Estudos, the only subject to peer review. Every other section of the publication also follows publication regulations that guarantee their inclusion in the international criteria of rankings and metrics, increasingly safeguarded by the journal, with positive results.

    The journal both arises from, and is aimed at academia, and it develops and presents itself as an attempt to encourage the kind of scientific exchange increasingly present in portuguese universities.
