Special issues both on topical themes and resulting from symposia/meetings/seminars/conferences are welcome.
The goal of running Special Issues in Economia agro-alimentare / Food Economy is to support regular issues by providing a coherent outlet for high quality research in a high current interest thematic area of topical or practical significance falling within the scope of the journal.
They should be managed by recognized experts in the area.
The Lead Guest Editor would be the promoter on its own initiative of a “food for thought” on today's major topics in the current agro-food economy. As well, he could be invited by the Editorial Board on themes emerged among the journal’s Editorial Board itself.
Special Issue proposals are welcome at any time during the year, and should be submitted to the Editor-in-chief, using the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals for Special Issues should be submitted by the Lead Guest Editor of the Special Issue and must include the following:
Normal practice for special issues is to publish the call for papers at least 12 months before the issue date.
All proposals are subject to approval following a discussion of the proposed Special Issue among the journal’s Editorial Board. If approved, a Call-for-Papers for the Special Issue will be issued and posted online. The Lead Guest Editor’s name will be used to promote the issue.
The Guest Editors’ main editorial task is to manage the peer review of submitted manuscripts by using the OJS platform used for regular submissions.
The peer-review process is single or double blinded. The Guest Editors cannot act as reviewers for the Special Issue’s articles. Guest Editor (s) are permitted to contribute with no more than two papers to the Special Issue. In this case, the article submitted will be handled by another Guest Editor or by an Editorial Board member.
A Special Issue should at least include 3 papers.
