PORTUSplus

The last edition of the journal

 

In the month of September 2017 has ended the work of the International Review Committee regarding the papers received after the launch of the “Call for Papers 2016” (seventh call, deadline January 31, 2017), for the publication of scientific original contributions in PORTUSplus, the journal of RETE dedicated to deepening the issues of the city-port relationship and urban waterfronts redevelopment.

 

The International Review Committee has been formed, this year, by a total of 17 members. The disciplinary composition includes international experts from different areas: geographers, planners, architects, engineers, sociologists, etc. For the most part, the members are the same who participated in the review of previous calls, and that has allowed a substantial homogeneity in the different editions regarding the application of the evaluation criteria

 

The total papers received, that confirm the interest in this initiative, have been 19, with a number of 29 participating authors among experts, researchers, professionals, etc.

This interest is reflected also in terms of geographical origin of the contributions (Italy, France, Portugal, Germany, Algeria, United States of America, India, China …).

After the “technical” verification by the Scientific Secretariat, have been submitted 19 papers to the International Review Committee, so that each paper has been evaluated, with anonymous procedure, by two or three experts.

 

The purpose of this initiative is to publish original articles, that demonstrate a significant scientific advancement by the proposals. For this reason are not included in the journal PORTUSplus (ISSN-2039-6422) the papers exclusively “descriptive” or project reports.

 

In PORTUSplus 7_2017 have been published 15 papers, that are available and downloaded from the website www.portusonline.org/portusplus.
