Editorial of the 30th issue of Ambiente & Agua journal

Getulio Teixeira Batista


This editorial discusses the Ambiente & Agua journal’s efforts to adjust to new criteria in order to remain in the SciELO Brazil collection. Special emphasis is given to efforts intended to meet the anticipated levels of internationalization, professionalization, and sustainable funding models in order to maintain the journal’s high quality and increasing impact. The Editorial Board identified the need to raise publication fees beginning on July 15, 2015. However, since we have a hybrid approach that includes public support and publication fees to cover article processing charges (APC), the new rates will be much lower than the average international APC.
