Unipa Springer Series (ENG)
The agreement signed between the University of Palermo and Springer in 2013 is the first initiative of co-branding for the international editor in the Italian scenario. The variety of editorial products and of scientific areas involved constitutes also an exception and a challenge at international level. The name of the english-language editorial project is UNIPA SPRINGER SERIES.
The project allows the scientific community of the University to publish high quality research and teaching books, including monographs, handbooks, advanced textbooks, journals and proceedings.
The authors of the UNIPA SPRINGER series will have the possibility to offer their research products through an high quality distribution channel and will benefit from the commercial infrastructure of Springer.
The initiative is open to both UNIPA researchers and scientists from other universities. The editorial products will cover five core disciplines:
- Medical, Biomedical & Life Sciences (Areas 05-06-07)
- Engineering & Physical Sciences (Areas 02-03-04-08-09)
- Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science (Area 01)
- Business, Economics & Law (Areas 12-13)
- Human, Behavioral & Social Sciences (Areas 10-11-14).
The people in charge of the initiative from UNIPA are prof. Carlo Amenta (Editor-in-chief) and prof. Eleonora Riva Sanseverino. The Editorial Board members are jointly appointed by Springer (5 members selected from the international scientific community) and by UNIPA (5 members selected among its researchers). The UNIPA Digital Library staff (within the University Library System) is in charge of the technical secretariat of the initiative.
Authors wishing to submit proposals should strictly follow the guidelines agreed with Springer.
