We are born out of the desire for a broad international dialogue - interdisciplinary, public, free, free of any institutional restriction and dedicated to a humanist reader - between philosophy and science. At the beginning, they were only an Argentine researcher linked to the University of Mar del Plata, a Brazilian researcher at the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP) and a great dream. Gradually, some friends from other universities approached, and in 2010, the magazine launched its first issue on an HTML site in Argentina with articles in Portuguese and Spanish blindly evaluated by peers.

In 2011 and 2012, new colleagues from both countries were added to the editorial team, enabling us to face new challenges. We moved to an international domain, started to edit our journal by the Open Journal System (OJS) platform and began to be evaluated by indexing portals.

From 2013 to 2018, we added two more members to the team, assigned a third-party editor-in-chief, credited to new crawlers, adopted the encrypted navigation system (https: //), we started the use of plagiarism checker programs in the evaluations, we adopted the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and started publishing articles in English, now in three different formats: PDF, HTML and XML.

In the second half of 2018, more mature and more structured, we began negotiations aiming to host our magazine in the Portal of Periodicals of UNIFESP. All discussions were based on institutional respect for the editorial line of the journal, the autonomy of the team, its international character, publishers linked to universities in different countries, and international rules and standards of editorial quality.

Thus, it is with great satisfaction that we announce: during the first semester of 2019, Prometeica - Journal of Philosophy and Sciences is going to migrate to the Portal of Periodicals of the Federal University of São Paulo. As a result, we are going to integrate the Research Data Repository (RDR) of UNIFESP and the Shared Indexing of Newspaper Articles (SINA). We will then be linked to the policy of digital preservation and, therefore, interconnected to the international network of repositories; and we will have new tools available, such as the Pergamum - Integrated Library System, the Turnitin antigen and the updated version of the Open Journal System.

With this, Prometeica's academic and international horizon expands exponentially, enabling new growth, development and consolidation goals.
