Globalization has contributed significantly to the organization of information in the various areas of knowledge, in order to make official the deeper search for a particular knowledge. Scientific works that seek results through categorical scientific methods and conclusions, by becoming public and open to debates on the knowledge developed in research, is a fundamental means for the dissemination and development of science.

The Scala Institute has set up a scientific committee in order to create a scientific journal with the objective of providing a means for the publication of high quality scientific articles, thus promoting the work and training of clinical researchers. This new journal has an ISSN-International Standard Serial Number, which is the internationally accepted identifier for serial publications, with a defined use and established by the technical standard ISO 3297:2007 – Information and documentation.

The scientific journal is initially scheduled to be published every four months and has been open for new submissions since April 2015. In 2015, the Scala Institute presents its new scientific journal: Principles and Practice of Clinical Research. After compiling the approved works through the peer-review system, the journal will be made available here.
