Focus and Scope

PACO is an Italian/International journal specialized in social and political studies.

It will house research and studies that focus on the transformations of politics and its key players (political parties, interest groups, social movements, associations, unions, etc.), focusing in partibcular on the dynamics of participation both by individuals acting in conventional ways, and by those who prefer protest-oriented repertoires of action.

Special attention is also paid to the dynamics of transformation of contemporary political systems, with an eye fixed on the processes of democratization besides on the spaces opening to the new forms of governance both at local and sub-national, and supra-national level.

All are inscribed in that complex phenomenon represented by the trans-nationalization of social, political and economic processes, without neglecting the nation-state dimension.

The journal emphasizes innovative studies and research of high methodological rigor, treasuring of the most recent theoretical and empirical contributions in social and political sciences.

* Publication in PACO is free of charge *

Starting from 2014, the Journal is published in English, accepting only papers describing original research and studies not published nor currently under review by other journals.

The Editorial Staff will also consider papers written in other languages, but in case of a positive outcome of the peer-review process, the authors will be requested to send an English version of their article. Papers written in a no correct English will be send back to the authors.

PACO is also affiliated to the Centre for the Study of Politics and Society – Working Paper Series (CSPS-WPS).

Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to PACO are subject to a rigorous double blind peer review process.

The selection process consists of two stages:

First, papers submitted to the journal are reviewed by at least two members of the Editorial Board who judge their relevance with respect to the editorial policies of the journal. The Editorial Board can judge the articles as non pertinent, non-rigorous and below minimum scientific standards. In this case manuscripts will be simply rejected without going in peer review. If manuscripts are considered pertinent to the journal authors will be sent preliminary comments and suggestions for re-drafting them before sending the papers out for review.

In the second stage of the evaluation process, manuscripts will be sent to at least two anonymous referees that will be selected according to their specific topic, theoretical approach and methodology.

Referees' reports will be sent to the authors also in case of negative assessment.

The reports will be filled using a standardized form in accordance with the standards adopted by leading international journals.

 

Publication Frequency

The Journal is published in three issues per year (March, July and November).

 

Open Access Policy

PACO provides open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the researchers, improve the global exchange of knowledge.

 

Archiving

PACO enabled the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) system to ensure a secure and permanent archive for the publication. LOCKSS is open source software developed at Stanford University Library that enables libraries to preserve selected web publications by regularly polling registered publication websites for newly published content and archiving it.
