In order to consolidate the production of knowledge as a response to the problems of the environment, academic exchange with other research and teaching institutions has an effect on the rich exchange of experiences that qualify the magazine. Finally, Margens is an effort to encourage the production and dissemination of knowledge produced at the Campus of Baixo Tocantins, with the purpose of consolidating research as one of the privileged instances of the academy and as a social commitment to improving the quality of life. life of the Amazonian populations. The journal publishes articles, interviews, reviews and Scientific Initiation texts that result from studies and research completed or under development.

Margens: Interdisciplinary Journal of the Postgraduate Program in Cities, Territories, and Identities (PPGCITI) is a semiannual journal with free and free access, created at the Abaetetuba Campus in 2004, by the Research Nucleus, coordinated by Ph. D. Antônio Otaviano Vieira Júnior. Initially, the magazine was created for the scientific dissemination of professors and students at the Federal University of Pará. Over the years, the journal, which was published only in printed format, gained importance and academic recognition for the effort to publish 1 volume per year. As of 2013, the Research and Postgraduation Division (RPGD) started to adopt the semiannual publication. In 2015, through a policy of valuing the scientific journal and in the midst of the desire to create the first Graduate Program of the Abaetetuba Campus, the Research and Graduate Division, joined efforts to migrate all content from the journal to the digital format. In the 11 years prior to the digital format, 13 issues were published, which are available in digital format. Since 2013, two issues have been released per year, respecting the biannual periodicity. The numbers are published in the format of Thematic Dossier and Free Articles. Margens was UFPA's first scientific journal, edited and published on Campus in the interior of the State of Pará, belonging to the Federal University of Pará (UFPA). In 2016, in celebration of the 10th year that the journal publishes articles in the magazine, a special issue was published. That same year, with the approval of the Postgraduate Program in Cities, Territories, and Identities (PPGCITI), an interdisciplinary program in Humanities and Societies, Margens, started to be edited by PPGCITI, under the tutelage of Editora Universitária Campus de Abaetetuba ( EditorAbaeté). In 2021, we celebrated the 15 years of regular publication of the magazine, with a special dossier with revisits of articles already published with updates made by the authors.
