    Call for papers MDCCC 1800

    Deadline for abstracts: 31 December 2021

    Deadline for submission of papers: 27 February 2022

    The call for papers for the 11th issue (2022) of MDCCC 1800, a digital international scientific journal indexed in Scopus and scientific for ANVUR areas 08 and 10 and class A in areas 10/B1 and 08/E2, is now open.

    After the successful launch of the first call on the theme “REBIRTH/REVIVAL. The rediscovery of the styles of the past in the 19th century (vol. I)”, that led to the preparation of a second volume, the terms for submitting papers in this topic OR EVEN original and unpublished studies that fit in with the editorial line of the journal are now open again.

    “REBIRTH/REVIVAL. The Rediscovery of the Styles of the Past in the 19th Century (vol. II)”

    The international scientific digital journal MDCCC 1800 intends to celebrate the eleventh issue by contributing to prepare the 200th anniversary of the death of Antonio Canova (2022) with a debate on the artistic rebirths and revivals of the styles of the arts of the past that have affected “the long nineteenth century” in Europe. This is a way of raising the public’s attention to the central role of the arts in society, with particular reference to the importance of collective and individual action in the creation of original works designed to mould and decorate several places in Europe and the world, as well as exerting a deep influence on the political and cultural environments of both the nineteenth and twentieth century. For the monographic section of this issue we therefore welcome original and unpublished contributions that discuss, for example, the traditional or avant-garde academic training of individual artists, architects, photographers, craftsmen investigated through readings, sketches, drawings; the study of individual or collective works inspired by one or more styles of the past, both pictorial cycles and architectural and/or urban and/or restoration projects; the historiographic thought of art and architecture critics; the research on the formation of public and private collections and the creation of museums; the incidence and success of individual and/or collective artistic actions in society.

    A list of suggested topics, by no means exhaustive, includes:

    • The traditional or avant-garde academic training of individual artists, architects, photographers, artisans
    • The investigation of individual or collective works inspired by one or more artistic styles of the past
    • The historiographic thought of art and architecture critics
    • The study of the formation of public and private collections and the creation of museums
    • The incidence and success of individual and/or collective artistic actions in society.

    We welcome submissions for papers in Italian, English, French, Spanish and German.

    Ethical Code of MDCCC 1800

    MDCCC 1800 is a peer-reviewed scientific journal whose policy is inspired by the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) Ethical Code. See the Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

    Publisher responsibilities  

    The Publisher must provide the Journal with adequate resources and the guidance of experts, in order to carry out its role in the most professional way, aiming at the highest quality standard.

    The Publisher must have a written agreement that defines the relationship with the owner of the Journal and/or the Editor-in-Chief. The agreement must comply with the Code of Behavior for Publishers of Scientific Journals, as established by COPE.

    The relationship among the Editor-in-Chief, the Editorial Board and the Publisher is based on the principle of publishing independence. 

    Editors responsibilities 

    The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board of MDCCC 1800 alone are responsible for the decision to publish the articles submitted.

    Submitted articles, after having been checked for plagiarism by means of the anti-plagiarism software Compilatio that is used by the University and is made available to us, will be sent to at least two reviewers. Final acceptance presumes the implementation of possible amendments, as required by the reviewers and under the supervision of the MDCCC 1800 Editors.

    The MDCCC 1800 Editors and Editorial Board must evaluate each submitted paper in compliance with the Journalʼs policy, i.e. exclusively on the basis of its scientific content, without discrimination of race, sex, gender, creed, ethnic origin, citizenship, or the scientific, academic and political position of the Authors. 

    If the MDCCC 1800 Editors and Editorial Board notice (or receive notifications of) mistakes or inaccuracies, conflict of interest or plagiarism in a published article, they will immediately warn the Author and the Publisher and will undertake the necessary actions to resolve the issue. If necessary, they will withdraw the article or publish a recantation. 

    Authors responsibilities


    Authors must follow the Guidelines for Authors to be downloaded from the MDCCC 1800 website. 

    No multiple submissions 

    Authors must explicitly state that their work is original in all its parts and that the submitted paper has not been previously published, nor submitted to other journals, until the entire evaluation process is completed. Since no paper gets published without significant revision, earlier dissemination in conference proceedings or working papers does not preclude consideration for publication, but Authors are expected to fully disclose publication/dissemination of the material in other closely related publications, so that the overlap can be evaluated by the MDCCC 1800 Editors. 


    Authorship must be correctly attributed; all those who have given a substantial contribution to the design, organisation and accomplishment of the research the article is based on, must be indicated as Co-Authors. The respective roles of each co-author should be described in a footnote. The statement that all authors have approved the final version should be included in the disclosure.

    Conflicts of interest and financing 

    Authors, under their own responsibility, must avoid any conflict of interest affecting the results obtained or the interpretations suggested. The MDCCC 1800 Editors will give serious and careful consideration to suggestions of cases in which, due to possible conflict of interest, an Author’s work should not be reviewed by a specific scholar. Authors should indicate any financing agency or the project the article stems from. 


    Authors must see to it that all works consulted be properly quoted. If works or words of others are used, they have to be properly paraphrased or duly quoted. Citations between “double quotes” (or «angled quotation marks» if the text is written in a language other than English) must reproduce the exact wording of the source; under their own responsibility, Authors should carefully refrain from disguising a restyling of the source’s wording, as though it was the original formulation. 

    Ethical Committee

    Whenever required, the research protocols must be authorised in advance by the Ethical Committee of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. 


    When Authors find a mistake or an inaccuracy in their own article, they must immediately warn the MDCCC 1800 Editors, providing all the information needed to make the due adjustments. 

    Reviewers responsibilities


    By means of the peer-review procedure, reviewers assist the MDCCC 1800 Editors and Editorial Board in taking decisions on the articles submitted. They are expected to offer the Authors suggestions as to possible adjustments aimed at improving their contribution submission. 

    Timing and conflicts of interest 

    If a reviewer does not feel up to the task of doing a given review, or if she/he is unable to read the work within the agreed schedule, she/he should notify the MDCCC 1800 Editors. Reviewers must not accept articles for which there is a conflict of interest due to previous contributions or to a competition with a disclosed author (or with an author they believe to have identified). 


    The content of the reviewed work must be considered confidential and must not be used without explicit authorisation by the author, who is to be contacted via the editor-in-chief. Any confidential information obtained during the peer review process should not be used for other purposes.

    Collaborative attitude

    Reviewers should see themselves not as adversaries but as advocates for the field. Any comment must be done in a collaborative way and from an objective point of view. Reviewers should clearly motivate their comments and keep in mind the Golden Rule of Reviewing: “Review for others as you would have others review for you”. 


    Reviewers should report any similarity or overlapping of the work under analysis with other works known to them.
