About

Since 1955, promoting learning, knowledge and research is our mission. In order to pursue this aim, we require accuracy from the authors, but adopt a neutral stance on the issues debated in our publications.
We publish about 250 series and 80 journals in print and digital format, regarding Business and Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Politics and Law, History and Philosophy.

Starting from 2015, we also offer gold open access publications with Creative Commons licenses, on the principle that making research accessible to everyone supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
All our open access articles/books are deposited immediately upon publication, without embargo, in at least one widely and internationally recognized open access repository.

Peer review info

We promote and oversee the use of peer review as a method of selection available to our editors for making editorial decisions and to our authors for improving their works.
Since 2013 we provide a digital platform for tracking the blind peer review process of books (FrancoAngeli Series) powered by Open Monograph Press (OMP).

Manuscripts are submitted to our editors, that make a first selection before sending them to the series chief editor for an “Internal Review”. If accepted, the manuscripts will be sent to one or two external reviewers, single or double blindly (depending on what is applicable in the field or in the series).
If the reviewer accepts the review request, he will be invited to fill an evaluation form for assessing: the scientific relevance of the work, the consistency of research results, the research methodology and the overall quality of the argumentation.
The outcome of the review process could be 'Accept submission', 'Request revisions', 'Resubmit for review' or 'Decline submission'. In all cases, authors will receive the anonymised reviewers' reports. In case of sponsored publications, their review will be based solely on the scientific value of the contents.

Abstract

"In October 1998, on the occasion of the first conference on design education, Richard Buchanan, then Director of The School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, envisioned doctoral education in Design as a ""neoteric enterprise"", aimed at finding novel ways of addressing the new problems, ""thereby creating a new body of learning and knowledge"". Twenty years after, these words can still be shared: the new problems affecting our globalised, bewildered and worried society are growing in numbers and in complexity, and novel ways of sorting them out are more sought-after than ever. The present book is part of a series that, since 2017, documents the production of the Politecnico di Milano Design Programme, presenting a summary of the doctoral theses defended each year. Eleven essays are here gathered into four sections: Design Education; Collaborative Processes; Cultural and Creative Companies; Technology for Social Change. In the variety of the researched topics, a common trait can be found in the continuous need of updated ways of addressing complex problems. It is such need that drives the evolving boundaries of design research forward, not just within our Doctoral Programme, but within all the national and international Doctoral Programmes in Design we are acquainted with."

Abstract

This edited book aims to address the issues of risk and climate change in geographical education at different school levels, offering both theoretical thoughts and the proposal of teaching activities. The discussed issues are often on the margins of teaching and geography studies in Italy, although they play a pivotal role in the understanding of territories and in the shaping of economic, social and environmental policies. The aim of the volume is to recognize the geography of risk as a relevant field of research and teaching, that needs to be implemented in Italy. The chapters see the contribution of different stakeholders, like Civil Protection, NGOs (Save the Children and Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre), municipalities and universities, trying to challenge and reason on the role of geography in the dissemination and teaching of the topics. The experiences and activities proposed provide a first tool for school and educators, which can have practical implications as well as stimulate further works on the topic. In particular, different risks (climate change, earthquakes, multi-hazard, etc.) and methodologies are discussed, offering some examples that can be replicated and further developed by teachers at different levels.

Abstract

For the classics, capitalism and modernity were merged. Indeed, it can be said that sociology originates precisely as a critical analysis of the processes and effects of capitalism. For the founders of the discipline, defining the theoretical and epistemological apparatus of sociology and critically analysing the origins, developments and consequences of capitalist modernity were, therefore, two sides of the same "mission". This volume takes up that mission by updating it and problematising it: by discussing classical contributions in the light of the most recent social transformations; by separating theories, processes and phenomena (from digitalisation to the transformations of work); by extending the scope of the effects of capitalism to a variety of contiguous fields.

Abstract

"Catastrophes and natural disasters lead to numerous problems in the education of children and teenagers, who present as the most vulnerable subjects in the communities affected. Often, in these circumstances, adults (educators, teachers, parents) do not know how to respond to their needs, reactions and feelings. What do we need to know about childhood trauma? What answers should we give to children exposed to the effects of catastrophes (mourning, destruction, widespread fears)? What educational activities might support them in their resilience? This book, born from experiences gained in the aftermath of the Amatrice earthquake in Italy in 2016, offers paths, through guidelines and educational activities, to confront together with children and teenagers post-catastrophe situations, the return to school, the intelligent management of emotions, and the maintenance of a sense of community."

Abstract

Cittadinanze offers a new perspective on the history of the State, understood in the aristotelian sense as the whole of its citizens. The volume contains twelve essays dedicated to the possible ways in which citizenship took shape during the contemporary age, analyzing the various historical concretions. Not a single, but a plural citizenship, an object and an epistemological instrument of many declinations - institutional, theoretical-political, juridical, philosophical. A reconstruction conducted through different places and times, ranging from the French and American revolutions to the immateriality of the digital divide. An original exam that interrogates the stories, practices and symbols that have linked individuals to their political communities.

Abstract

Serious illness prevents many students from attending school on a regular basis and can lead to long-term absence from the classroom. The consequent isolation impedes socialization and educational exchange between homebound students and their schoolmates, as well as interaction with their teachers. Moreover, these students face serious difficulties when they eventually manage to return to school. All these factors slow down homebound students’ learning progress and weaken their sense of belonging to their peer group. In response to these issues, Italy’s Ministry of Education (MIUR), National Research Council (CNR), and the TIM Foundation set up a project in 2013 named TRIS (Networked Technologies and Socio-educational Inclusion). The main aim of the project is to develop a flexible and scalable intervention model for integrating homebound leaners. This is based on active and engaging learning approaches and is designed for application to a wide variety of long–term absence situations. The main pillar of the project is the so-called “Inclusive Hybrid Classroom”, a special blending of physical and digital learning spaces. By facilitating direct engagement in class activities, irrespective of the students’ actual location, this kind of classroom heightens the sense for everyone that the homebound student is actively present in the classroom.

Abstract

The book contains the results of a research on the outcomes of a communication campaign of the risks related to exposure to chemicals. The initiative, aimed at students of 3rd, 4th and 5th high school classes of the City of Rome, explored the initial level of skills and knowledge on the chemical hazard, and then assessed the increase as a result of an information campaign conducted by experts of Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale (ISPRA), in order to spread knowledge on the subject and form a group of aware young citizens.
