Unipa publishing initiatives


During the years, the University developed an interesting and rich publishing activity which recently resulted into some projects (Unipa Press, Unipa Springer Series) and which produced books, series, journals and working papers published by the various University structures.

The Regulation for University of Palermo journals (Regolamento per le riviste scientifiche di proprietà dell’Ateneo, di singoli dipartimenti o di centri interdipartimentali dell’Università degli Studi di Palermo ITA) has been recently issued by Rector's Decree no. 1578 of 1 April 2021, as a result of an ever-increasing attention to the complexity of scientific communication, to developments in Open Access and in order to promote consistent use of the University brand. The Regulation intends to enhance quality of Unipa publications,  promoting internationalization and ensuring a transparent review process.

To promote the knowledge and the use of these bibliographic resources, this page provides the description of current UNIPA publishing projects, of all series, journals and web projects, edited by the University, and a list of serial publications, with ISSN and “Università di Palermo” as author/publisher body, which are no more published. Finally, the page shows the links to the Departments’ webpages, providing news about their contributions to the editorial production.

Each title is accompanied by one or more links that allow the identification and location of the paper editions in UNIPA libraries and/or available for online consultation.
