Revista Tundavala



Tundavala: Revista Angolana de Ciências was created in 2012 as a vehicle for the production and dissemination of Angolan science within the SADEC and CPLP cultural region. It is the result of researchers from the Instituto Superior Politécnico Tundavala do Lubango, the almost non-existence of Angolan vehicles for scientific dissemination, a fact that makes it difficult to publish research developed locally and by Angolan researchers, putting them at a disadvantage compared to other countries and regions. .


Focus and Scope

Tundavala: Revista Angolana de Ciências  - TRAC is a multidisciplinary publication of the Instituto Superior Politécnico Tundavala. The Journal publishes academic articles resulting from original theoretical or field research.

Its purpose is to offer a space for the dissemination of national and international scientific production.


Peer Review Process

Tundavala: Angolan Science Journal is open to national and international contributions. Manuscripts are evaluated for originality, importance of the topic and the quality of the scientific methodology used, also taking into account the editorial standards adopted by the journal. All manuscripts submitted to the journal are evaluated by two or more evaluators who are specialists in the subject of the submitted article. The evaluation is done anonymously (Double blind review), ensuring secrecy throughout the review process.

At the end of the evaluation, the accepted manuscripts will be sent to the authors so that any modifications can be made and so that they are aware of the changes to be introduced.

The authors must return the text with the requested modifications, justifying in the referral letter, if applicable, the reason for rejecting the evaluators' suggestions.

At the end of the process, the editorial committee will decide whether or not to approve the manuscript and its publication.
