AFFECTIVITY, SENSITIVITY AND EMOTIONS IN THE 21st CENTURY
The issue will be comprised of texts in Italian or English – including interdisciplinary ones – providing an original contribution to the scientific and social debate, starting from the combination of empirical investigations and theoretical reflections, without specific preferences for theoretical approaches and research methodologies. The editor-in-chief and the editorial staff reserve the right to publish contributions received in other European languages than Italian and English.
The texts may have a different type of contribution, according to the general structure of the journal.
The Essays section (35,000 to 60,000 characters, including footnotes, references and spaces) includes origi-nal works and field-works, preferring those with both theoretical and empirical implications on the themes that revolve around the problems posed by the Call for Papers.
The Experiences and Comparisons section (25,000 to 40,000 characters, including footnotes, references and spaces) includes contributions concerning the results of case studies (local, national and/or international) or reports aiming to compare different territorial areas on more or less specific areas of sociology and other human and social sciences, emerging phenomena and field surveys. The section welcomes contributions not strictly in line with the monographic theme of the issue, as long as they follow the aims and contents of the journal.
The Notes and Comments section (9,000 to 25,000 characters, including footnotes, references and spaces) hosts contributions that present experiences, projects and critical reflections on interventions, measures and social policies, at different territorial scales and/or in specific areas of social intervention, as well as com-ments and reflections on publications, Italian and/or international, concerning both social policies and social sciences in general. Furthermore, this section welcomes for publication short historical and/or unpublished texts in Italy, by both classical and contemporary authors chosen by the Scientific Committee of the journal or proposed by third parties.
With the exception of the Essays section, the sections have an open call. Contributions do not necessarily have to be in line with the monographic theme of the issue, provided that they follow the aims and contents of the journal. Papers, in Italian or English, must be sent through OJS platform with clear indication of the section chosen by 10th June 2019.
All articles must follow the editorial rules which, together with the procedures for making the paper anonymous, are available
