Scientific knowledge is a social construction mediated by research activity among various sectors of society. In this aspect, it needs to be reflected, debated, and, above all, disseminated.

In this context, scientific events constitute efficient means for disseminating advances and innovative discoveries in the most varied areas of knowledge. The scientific event is important in the knowledge construction process, considering its faster communication characteristic than formal means.

In this sense, the 1st International Seminar of Editors and Researchers of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security intends to bring together professionals, members of the Unified Public Security System (Susp), partner institutions in Brazil and other countries, especially researchers and editors in public security for the exchange and transmission of new ideas and facts that may contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge in the area. Specifically:

a) develop and consolidate skills and abilities necessary for research practices in Public Security;
b) know international practices for the development of scientific research focusing on Public Security themes;
c) discuss and reflect the knowledge production in Public Security;
d) stimulate and promote the advancement of knowledge generation in public security, through permanent institutional exchange between researchers;
e) desenvolver e consolidar competências e habilidades necessárias para a atividade de edição de revistas científicas de segurança pública;
f) know practices for the management of scientific journals in public security;
g) present new mediation methods of scientific production;
h) update editors, researchers, and their teams in the scientific communication process focused on the theme and contemporary lines of research of Public Security.

The Seminar intends to promote a reflection on the actions that should be taken to produce and disseminate scientific knowledge in Public Security. In this scenario, challenges arise in contemporaneity, and they present new perspectives that can enable methodological paths to be developed and implemented.
