Author Guidelines


To complete the online submission process, authors must adhere to the submission preparation checklist provided above and follow the specified citation style (see below). Authors are required to submit their papers (as specified in the Call for Papers) prepared for publication, accompanied by an abstract and metadata, following the guidelines provided on this website.


To submit an article, please take the following steps:

  • register as an “Author”;
  • log in as a “User” and click on “Submit a proposal”;
  • provide the required metadata: info, title, abstract, and key-words;
  • follow the instructions in the "How to ensure a blind review" window to upload an anonymous article;
  • upload the article;
  • select English from the drop-down menu and enter your metadata in English;
  • if necessary, you can modify the metadata after the submission is completed. To do this, go to your home page, click on the submission title, and find the "Edit metadata" link.

Contributions in English, Italian, French, German and Spanish will be considered. Authors are required to provide an English version of the metadata, abstract and title for their proposal, in addition to the original language of the submission. To facilitate this, the online submission process provides a drop-down menu to change the language of the data entered in the fields. It is important to note that this drop-down menu should not be confused with a similar one on each page of the web interface, located in the right-hand column, which is used to change the language of the interface itself.

Once the mandatory and optional metadata have been entered, the author should change the language and complete the submission by entering the remaining metadata in the original language of the proposal. It is essential that this language change is made before saving and proceeding to the next step in the submission process.

Mandatory metadata, marked with an asterisk (*), includes: name and surname, e-mail address, title of the submission, and abstract.

For each submission, the author may propose a maximum of 5 keywords for indexing purposes.

The author will have the opportunity to review his or her paper after the peer review process and editing.
