Publication and Maintenance of System
The Grupo Verde de Agroecologia e Abelhas is an NGO that works in the dissemination of scientific manuscripts in several areas of knowledge and carries out research and extension with small rural producers in the hinterland of Brazil.
To maintain the scientific publication system, we need resources. To meet the costs of technical support, layout, publication and indexing, we request a donation of 300.00 R$ (three hundred Brazilian reais) after approval of the manuscript.
We do not want to make collaboration an impediment to publication, if the authors or the institution are unable to contribute, authors can inform about the conditions by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
