  1. SOME IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

    Manuscripts may be submitted in English, Portuguese or Spanish. However, all articles, without exception, will be published in the English language. If the manuscript is submitted in Portuguese or Spanish, and accepted for publication, the authors are responsible for translating the final version into English. The English version will be fully checked by the editors to avoid literal translation.

    Original or Review articles will be accepted being within the TreeD scope.
