Administrative Law Review receives maximum CAPES rating
The Administrative Law Review, produced by Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Rio de Janeiro Law School and edited by Professor Sérgio Guerra, obtained an A1 rating in the latest “Qualis Periodicals” evaluation by the Brazilian Education Ministry’s graduate education support agency, CAPES. The Administrative Law Review was placed in the maximum category for graduate program publications in the field of law.
The preliminary results of CAPES’ 2017-2020 assessment were released on December 29 on its Sucupira Platform. CAPES’ Qualis system classifies the quality of scientific journals, assigning them A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, B4, B5 or C status. In the previous assessment, referring to the 2013-2016 period, the Administrative Law Review was rated A2. Created in 1945, the Administrative Law Review is edited and distributed jointly by FGV Press and Editora Fórum.
The journal is linked to the Regulatory Law Master’s and Doctoral Program at the FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School. It is focused on disseminating ideas in the areas of public law and legal theory. The periodical features articles specifically related to the program’s research areas, namely “Regulatory Governance, Institutions and Justice” and “Economics, Intervention and Regulatory Strategies.”
According to Professor Sérgio Guerra, this result is due to the Administrative Law Review’s commitment to its mission. “The Administrative Law Review seeks to contribute to major current discussions on various issues underlying the regulatory phenomenon and, from a broader perspective, on public law and the theory of law in Brazil, in an interdisciplinary and empirical manner,” he says.
