Partial information won’t be used.

PECOB follows a strict policy regarding the quality and accessibility of the documents published on the Portal (Legge Stanca 4/2004), in an effort to match the highest standards on web content accessibility. In order to ensure maximum readability, accessibility and conversion quality, authors and contributors are requested to make every effort in formatting and saving their documents correctly.

Eligibility

Eligible candidates include authors of papers analyzing any topic related to the political economic, historical, social or cultural aspects of a specific country or region among the following: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia Czech Republic, Cyprus, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, or Ukraine.

Benefits

Selected papers will be published after a peer-review process on the Institute’s website: PECOB. PECOB is a connecting portal built between Italy and Central, Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Post-Soviet space. The Portal aims to provide experts, scholars and interested users with scientific content on the region.

Application

The deadline is 30 November 2013. Potential contributors must submit a short abstract (200-300 words) and the full text to Ms Luciana Moretti at [email protected] or [email protected]. Papers will go through a blind-review process that will assess their quality. Only papers that successfully pass through the blind review process will be published on the portal.

PECOB editorial Staff is constantly collecting proposals for scientific contributions. Any contributor willing to submit a scientific document (MA thesis, PhD dissertation, paper or article) is welcome to do it. Each proposal for PECOB Scientific Library will be first evaluated by PECOB Scientific Committee and then passes through a peer review process.

Positively evaluated papers and essays will be given an ISSN code and become part of the “PECOB’s papers series,” provided that they show high scientific relevance and/or innovation in the field of academic research; whereas theses and dissertations will be given an ISBN code and published on-line as “PECOB’s volumes.”

If the peer review ends positively, the contribution will be edited by the editorial staff and the author will receive a proof of his/her contribution for proofreading. At this stage the author’s proof corrections should only consist of typos and/or factual errors.

The last step before publication requires the author to sign PECOB copyright compliance and send his/her personal data (in case he/she doesn’t appear among PECOB’s contributors yet).
