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

"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

"The essays collected in this volume wonder about different aspects of the crisis we are experiencing and discuss the interpretative models best suited to approach them.From the actor's theory to the transition theories; from the degenerations of capitalism and liberalism to the role of Europe; from the social implications of science to the transformations that affect work; from the training to the experiences of the young generations, we have here a path that combines theory and social research, rigorous observations and images of a better world."

Abstract

"Economic and sociological research has long shown that the widespread presence of criminal organizations in the territory is a factor that contrasts economic and social development.This is just one aspect of the complex relationship that exists between local economic dynamics and the illegal behavior of social actors. The relationship between social norms and legal norms, the quality and quantity of social capital, the bonds of trust between the actors and the legitimization of the state, the local power systems, the certainty of the sanctions, are other aspects that certainly contribute to create the conditions that favor illegal responses to the crisis.The book seeks to highlight how legality and illegality present facets and interdependencies that can't simply be traced back to the moral categories of good and evil, but need to be analyzed in a multifactorial perspective."
