The importance of the paper title
The title and summary are very important for search engines on the Internet; many of whom only indexing these two parts of your article. Thus, your paper title should be concise, accurate and informative. Read more in Optimizing the visibility of your article on the internet.
For all types of articles, the abstract should not exceed 250 words and must summarize the work, giving a clear indication of the conclusions contained therein. It should be structured with sections: Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusion. Review articles present the sections: Introduction, Discussion and Conclusion. The templates should be used.
Articles in English will be required to submit the summary in both languages: Portuguese (Summary) and English (Abstract). In no case exceeding the limit of words count. Read more about good attributes for the Abstract in Optimizing the visibility of your article on the internet.
The manuscript should have 3-5 key words. It is essential that authors, reviewers and editors employ every effort to ensure that the articles can be found online, quickly, accurately and preferably within the three main keywords indicated. In this context, the proper use of keywords is crucial. Please to choose your keywords consulting the descriptors in the Health Sciences Virtual Library (Biblioteca Virtual de Saúde: BVS) and / or the Mesh Terms. One should be very carefull choosing the keywords because the use of proper keywords helps in increasing the chances of the article to be located and therefore cited; there is a strong correlation between displayed online results and subsequent citations in journal articles (read more in Optimizing visibility of your paper). Search engines on the Internet are the main starting points. Students are increasingly likely to start your search using Google Scholar ™ instead begin by traditional starting points as physical libraries and / or print journals. The terms of keywords may differ from the actual text used in the title and abstract, but must accurately reflect what the article is about.
4. Body Text
The texts must be produced in Word 2003 format or later, using font Times New Roman size 12, with a margin of 3 cm on the left, double-spaced. The text may contain headings and subheadings, bordered on the left. The titles should be in bold with only the first letter of each word capitalized. Subtitles should be highlighted only in italics. If necessary, the second level of subtitles it shall only be underlined. It should be avoided more than these levels. Please download the template for your Type of Article, which contains the specific format.
The different types of articles and their respective sections can be found in Types of Articles section.
All other details should be consulted in the Style and Formatting section.
Special thanks; recipients must consent to be mentioned.
6. Conflict of interests
Statement whether there is any conflict of interest between authors and / or institutions to publication of the article is necessary. The section is required to appear after the body text (use the templates).
7. Statement financing
Declare the sponsoring institution of the study. Required section to appear before the references (use the template).
The authors are responsible for the accuracy of cited references and should be checked before submitting the manuscript. Maximum number of citations is 40 references; except for review articles. Authors should respect this limit. The style of references used by the Revista de Educação Física / Journal of Physical Education is the Imperial College London Vancouver (see examples below). The style is available in the free reference manager Zotero, which operates in the Mozilla Firefox. First, you must install the application, then install the plugin appropriate to your text editor, then download the style. Please, note that the titles of periodicals are presented in italics (books and others are different, see details below) and DOI (see below) when available should be included.
Citations in the text
When making a citation in the text, if there is more than one author, use the expression "et al." after the name of the first author. References should be numbered consecutively as they arise throughout the text. References cited in figures or tables (or their legends and their footnotes) should be numbered between parentheses, according to the location in the text where the table or figure, the first time it has been cited. Reference numbers in the text should be inserted immediately after the parenthesis (no spacing between words); for example: ,(6) and not , (6). Where there is more than one citation, they shall be separated by a comma, for example: (1, 4, 39). For sequences of consecutive numbers, to the first and the last sequence number separated by a hyphen, for example, (22-25). In the case of a book, the pages should be mentioned.
The list of references
References should be numbered consecutively in the order they are mentioned in the text. Only published or in press should be included in the reference list. Personal communications or unpublished data should be cited in parentheses in the text with the name (s) (s) source (s) and the year.
In the reference list if a citation refers to more than three authors, list the first 6 and add "et al.". Use only one space between words until the year, and then, without spaces. The title of the magazine should be in italics and abbreviated according to the style of Medline. If the journal is not listed in Medline, then it should be presented completely .
Please note that if the references are not listed in order, the manuscript can be returned for corrections before being sent to the editor to enter the review process.

Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
DOI is a network that was established to identify intellectual property in the online environment. It is particularly useful for articles that are published online before they appear in print and, therefore, have not yet received the traditional numbers volume, number and page references. Thus, the DOI is a permanent identifier for all versions of a manuscript, whether raw or edited proof, online or in print. It is recommended to include the DOI in the reference list.
Very large table, pictures and other files can be attached to the article as Appendices in separate files as applicable.
Style and format
1. Writing style
The text should be prepared in scientific style, succinct and easy to read (read more about Scientific Writing Style). It is desirable: an informative title, a concise summary and a well-written introduction. Authors should avoid excessive use of the passive voice and use unnecessarily abbreviations produced within the text itself. It will be accepted in the case of abbreviation that refers to the variable study's object. The considerations about the ethical aspects of research involving human subjects must appear at the end of the methods section (use template) Figures and tables should be used to increase the clarity of the article. Please, have in mind that your readers are not all experts in your discipline.
The manuscript must be written in Brazilian Portuguese or English. The latter can be British or American, however, the text should be standardized not admitting mixture of languages. All articles must present the Abstract in both Portuguese and English.
Authors whose native language is not English must submit their work for review / preview translation of a native reviewer and submit the certificate of translation in Supplementary Documents. That procedure aims to garantee text correction and quality of the production in order to ensure international credibility to the content published.
Examples of sites that ofers this kind of service are Elsevier Language Services and Edanze Editing. There are also many other websites that offer these services; none of responsibility of this Journal. The responsibility of idiomatic textual revision lies with the authors. It is recommended that authors revise their work after idiomatic translation / review, as often occur contextual errors related to the specificity of each area.
It is noteworthy that English language articles gain greater visibility in the international scientific community. Thus, the scientific production in this format is strongly encouraged.
3. Formatting text
The text should be processed in Word font Times New Roman 12 point, double-spaced, with margins of three centimeters (3 cm) on the left, with header and footers formatted according the templates. For instance, the only element in footer is the page number that should be located at the bottom of the page on the right. The line numbers will be inserted in the main document (set upped in Word, in <Page Layout> menu). Do not use footnotes, unless absolutely necessary. The manuscript should have the following structure: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions, with captions accepted. For the preparation of articles refer to Type of Articles section and to format your article according to its template, download it and insert your text in it.
Authors should make every effort to ensure that manuscripts are presented as concisely as possible. Ideally, the main body of text should not exceed 4,000 words, excluding references. Longer manuscripts can be accepted at the discretion of the respective Section Editor, whom the authors should send in Supplementary Files a letter-justification that should accompany those texts that exceeds the wourds count. See the item Types of Articles the number of words for each article type.
The style of scientific writing is mainly characterized by clarity, simplicity and correct grammar. Clarity in writing is obtained when ideas are presented without ambiguity, which guarantees the univocity (characteristic of what can only be interpreted one way); further, clarity is related to the domain of the knowledge that the author has. For more details on the scientific see Scientific Writing Style.

Additionally, we encourage authors to send images (photographs) illustrating the research work referred to in Article. See item Cover Illustration.
Considerations on ethics in research involving human subjects
The Revista de Educação Física / Journal of Physical Education accepts only studies that have been conducted in accordance with the highest standards of ethics and protection for participants. The Resolution No. 466 of the National Council of Ministry of Health of Health, published on December 12, 2012, contains the guiding principles, and covers global principles on the subject including the Declaration of Helsinki, which offers greater protection to both volunteers and researchers in conducting scientific research involving human beings or information about these. All the experimental work involving human subjects must conform to the stipulated requirements and, as appropriate, with the laws of the country where the work was done. The manuscript should contain a statement that the study was approved by a recognized ethics committee or by a review board. Although the subject matter is of public domain information, such as population or other statistical data, formal ethical approval must be obtained to confirm that there has been due consideration of issues related to ethics. Similarly, in the case of retrospective data analyzes, such as those produced by long-term monitoring data of athletes or other occupational categories in which physical fitness tests are carried out, the approval on the ethics involving human subjects must be obtained.
The statement on the ethical approval must be made at the end of the Methods section and the registration number obtained approval if there is one, it should be included.
Peer review (double blind)
The process of analysis and assessment of the articles is carried out by experts (teachers and doctors) from different areas of knowledge members of the journal's scope, with the anonymity of both authors and reviewers ("double blind review"). So the manuscript must not include any information that clearly identifies the authors or their affiliations, which shall figure only on the title page that is sent separately to the article. Please be sure to remove the properties of your main document items that identify the authors.
Accepted: This decision implies that the article does not suffer content settings, only minor editorial changes.
Revisions required: This definition implies that minor adjustments are still needed for the item to go to the accepted.
Submit the new round: This definition implies that the article needs to be widely published in order that further evaluation is carried out by auditors. Usually this decision is made in cases where the article has merit due to experimental design but need to go a long way in writing in order to effectively convey quality with the findings of the study.
Reject: This decision applies to studies which reviewers do not check enough innovations in experimental design or justification for their realization. Taking this decision does not preclude a new article submission since the authors are able to contemplate the questions of the reviewers through a letter responding to all questions raised by the reviewers and the section editor. In the case of a new submission, the article is considered as a new submission.
Aiming high scientific quality, during the Editorial process editors may request textual revisions that make the production clear and concise.
Terms and nomenclatures
Terms and nomenclatures must respect international system for symbols, units and abbreviations.
Scientists have tried to increase the comparability of studies and also reliability. In this context, the terms and constructs to be used by the authors should preferably draw on those already existing and well established in the literature. Authors should consider the terms in the Guide to Physical Activities of the US Disease Control Center (1), in which scientists sought to standardize concepts and terminology. Some examples of concepts and definitions mentioned in the guide are:
• Physical activity
And its subcategories:
• Regular physical activity
• Aerobic Exercise
In addition, to measure the level of physical activity, the literature suggests that existing recognized instruments use standardization of energy expenditure in METs (metabolic equivalent) by the Physical Activities Compendium of Ainsworth et al. (2). The most used are the Baecke's Questionnaire (3) and the International Physical Activity Questionnaire – IPAQ (4).
