Qualitative Research and Peer Review from the perspective of scientific publications

Live Bahiana discussed the purpose and functioning of the evaluation of qualitative research.


Qualitative Research and Peer Review was the theme of Live Bahiana, broadcast on the Institution's Youtube Channel, on September 30. The debate was promoted by Revista Psicologia, Diversidade e Saúde (RPDS) and aimed to explain what it is, what it is not, what it is for and how the evaluation of qualitative research should work. The occasion brought together Catarina Brandão (publisher of RPDS), João Barreto (executive editor of Bahiana Journals), Marilda Castelar (editor-in-chief of the RPDS) and Mônica Daltro (scientific editor of the RPDS).

The researchers talked about ways to decolonize science and universalize access to scientific publications, maintaining seriousness, credibility and scientific quality. Professor Mônica Daltro also pointed out the scientific potential of the Northeast, in particular, of the Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública.

Quality research, based on theoretical plurality and scientific development from the perspective of social commitment, human rights and diversity, was also debated. In addition, the speakers highlighted the differentials of the RPDS, which brings together original texts, in Portuguese, English and Spanish, in the form of empirical research reports, theoretical articles and experience reports, with an emphasis on qualitative methods.
