Marcelo dos Santos Targa


In this editorial, we reflect on the evaluation criteria that is under discussion to be adopted for the assessment of CAPES (Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education) Environmental Sciences area – CACiamb. This criteria aims to increase qualified production by simulating CAPES quality strata A1, A2, B1 and B2 production of Academic Master Degree Programs with 12 permanent professors based on the criteria established by the Interdisciplinary Area Committee – CAInter in 2007. As well as expectations for the adoption of periodic assessment of free access bases, along with fostering the use of scientific journals published online by Graduate Programs.
