    ANNOUNCEMENT: QULSO accepted for indexing in ERIH PLUS

    It is a pleasure to announce that Quaderni di Linguistica e Studi Orientali (QULSO) has been approved for inclusion in ERIH PLUS. The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) is the most important and prestigious reference index in the European Union when it comes to international quality and impact accreditation for scientific journals in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences.


    ERIH PLUS was established (only as ‘ERIH’ at first) by the European Science Foundation (ESF) Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) in 2002 and has ever since become the most highly valued reference index within the European Union. ERIH PLUS can be described as especially demanding both by the width and diversity of requirements considered and by the strictness with which EU experts’ panels have to carry out their task when evaluating the compliance with those requirements. The selection process includes several stages of the evaluation procedure, and it has been coordinated by the no less demanding Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers from 2014 onwards.

    A new call for the rigorous evaluation of scientific journals was published in July 2014. QULSO passed this evaluation and was accordingly included in the EU’s prestigious and influential ERIH PLUS index. This undoubtedly means a great recognition for the persevering, disciplined and rigorous work carried out by this journal

    ERIH PLUS was established (only as ‘ERIH’ at first) by the European Science Foundation (ESF) Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) in 2002 and has ever since become the most highly valued reference index within the European Union.


  • Restauro Archeologico

    Restauro Archeologico (RA­) è un periodico scientifico internazionale, semestrale, pubblicato in stampa e modalità Open Access.
    RA pubblica articoli sottoposti a peer review – in italiano, inglese, spagnolo, francese e tedesco – sulla conoscenza, conservazione e valorizzazione del patrimonio architettonico d’interesse archeologico e di quello allo stato di rudere e si pone l’obiettivo di focalizzare l’attenzione sulle metodologie di studio e d’intervento su manufatti architettonici riferibili a contesti archeologici o ad essi connessi (pluristratificazioni).
    Il restauro archeologico può comprendere, per modalità d’intervento e finalità di valorizzazione, oltre ai manufatti riferibili all’antichità, anche tutti i manufatti che, per provenienza, condizioni di utilizzo e stato di manutenzione sono ridotti a rudere; ad esempio, sugli edifici in disuso, o in rovina di epoca moderna, si potrà intervenire con procedure simili a quelle utilizzate per le testimonianze di epoca antica, con la principale finalità di conservarne la memoria, come nel caso dell’archeologia industriale. La rivista ambisce, quindi, a costituire una finestra privilegiata di osservazione dei diversi approcci conservativi in funzione dei molteplici contesti geopolitici e culturali. In quest’ottica, ampio spazio è dato agli aspetti di multidisciplinarietà insiti nella pratica del restauro, con un’attenzione particolare ai progressi metodologici e tecnici della disciplina.

  • Storia delle Donne

    Storia delle donne [Women’s History] is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published annually. Each issue is devoted to a theme that is particularly relevant to contemporary women and is re-examined within different cultures and societies often far removed in time and space.

    The aim of each monographic issue is to trace back women’s individual and collective itineraries analysing  their material and symbolic worlds against the backdrop of various geographic, socio-political, cultural and religious  contexts. Storia delle donne is set out in two sections – Passato [Past] and Presente [Present] – in order to achieve continuity and discontinuity within a political perspective that takes gender studies into account, and is always sensitive to collective values.


    La rivista Storia delle Donne nasce dalla collaborazione di studiose specialiste di epoche e discipline diverse –formate in scuole di varie università italiane– e si propone come pubblicazione ad alto contenuto scientifico. SdD ha periodicità annuale, i numeri sono tematici in ragione della scelta redazionale di presentare ciascun fascicolo come un unicum perché meglio siano colte, messe a fuoco e sviluppate l’evidenza e l’importanza dell’argomento proposto. La sezione «Oltre il tema» ospita articoli non attinenti al tema del monografico. L’idea che è a fondamento del progetto SdD guarda al nesso tra storia e politica delle donne, ma accorda priorità a quello fra storia e politiche per le donne e con le donne; questa è una delle ragioni per cui la scelta del tema dei fascicoli è dettata dai processi in atto e dalle urgenze che la contemporaneità propone. Il tema viene sviluppato nella sezione «Presente» da contributi che lo illustrano con incroci di approccio e metodo volutamente pluridisciplinari, senza che questo identifichi SdD con l’interdisciplinarietà degli Women’s Studies. Nella sezione «Passato» i saggi restituiscono lo spessore storico e diacronico nella longue durée che si snoda dalle civiltà antiche fino al Novecento. Molto accentuata la proiezione internazionale della rivista, sia nei temi che nelle autrici e autori, gli articoli sono quindi pubblicati in diverse lingue: altre all’italiano naturalmente, anche in francese, inglese, spagnolo, portoghese.

    Tutti i testi pubblicati in SdD sono valutati, secondo le modalità del doppio cieco (double blind peer review), da due referees individuati nell’ambito di un’ampia cerchia di specialiste e specialisti.
