Thematic Forums

Forums are designed to disseminate knowledge about topics of interest and relevance to the scientific community.

The organizers should prepare a call for papers on a specific topic. The call for papers should include:

  • Title of the forum;
  • The deadline for submissions;
  • Name of the organizers and the acronym of the institution to which they are affiliated;
  • Topic introduction: up to 150 words;
  • Subtopics: a maximum of 6 items, oriented towards which areas of work can present contributions;
  • Submission instructions: the standard pattern of the RAE Editorial Office, the organizers should just include the name/contact email to answer any questions related to the call for papers.
Attention: The organizers, also called guest editors, play a very important role in the process of improving articles for publication. The RAE will assist and effectively participate in every step of the process including all the guidelines for the authors/evaluators and communications with them.
