Author guidelines

Your works need to be original papers, basic research papers and, more particularly, applied research papers, essays, book reviews and interviews so as to strengthen the experienced and researchers’ sense of belonging to this community of practice, and enhance a most interactive cross-fertilization of ideas.

The assessment of the studies will take into account the following aspects: the perspective of the research; the novelty of the issue approached and its theoretical substantiation; the design of the research; the methodology of the research; the results obtained; the consistency and relevance of the discussions and of the interpretations; the consistency of the conclusions; the relevance and timeliness of the bibliography.
