Thematic dossier composed of only 4 articles developed within the International Symposium on Prison and Gender scope, and approved by the Scientific Committee of the Event and subsequent evaluation by the desk review of the Journal Análise Social.

  • Análise Social is a journal that publishes original and relevant academic papers in the social sciences. It accepts for evaluation:

(i) background articles up to a limit of 9000 words;

(ii) articles integrated in thematic dossiers, up to a maximum of four, with a limit of 7000 words each

The journal also publishes reviews of up to 1500 words, as well as, occasionally, interviews and obituaries. Submission of works for review is accepted.

  • Works may be submitted in Portuguese and English.


The Editorial Board examines the works submitted for their suitability for the journal. After this screening process, at least two evaluation reports are requested for the articles and essays received. Only articles and essays approved through this evaluation system are published. All reviews will be evaluated by a responsible editor, according to the thematic area in which they fall.


The content of the papers is the responsibility of the authors and not of the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon or the Direction of the journal.

  • The papers should be sent in a Word file.

  • The works must always contain on the first page the title of the article, the author’s name, institutional affiliation, e-mail and postal address, Orcid, as well as a biographical note not exceeding 100 words. For multi-author papers, provide complete information for each author and indicate the corresponding author.


Background articles, dossier articles and bibliographical essays must be accompanied by a 100-word abstract and four keywords in the language in which they are written and in English. The disciplinary and/or thematic area(s) of the proposed article must also be explicitly indicated.

  • All explicit information concerning the author, such as self-citations or references to previous works, must be anonymized, both in the body of the text and in the final bibliography, in order to guarantee the anonymity system. For example, the in-text citation of an article published by the author of the manuscript Maria Santos in 2021, should read: (Author 2021). In the list of references, the citation for this article should read “Author (2021)”.

  • Footnotes are numbered. All tables, figures, images and maps are numbered and identified by a title, and are placed at the end of the text, indicating where they should be inserted. The bibliography must be placed after the tables and must contain only the referenced works, in alphabetical order.


Citations and references to authors should follow the following rules: (Pinto, 2002), when referring to a work or aspect of it in general; (Pinto, 2002, pp. 32-33), when referring to a specific aspect or making a citation; Pinto (2002a) when citing more than one work of the author and year; Pinto and Ferreira (2003) and Pinto, Ferreira and Sousa (2003), when referring to a work with two or three authors; Pinto et al.
