CALL FOR ARTICLES 2019 | Title: The Body of Art
Venezia Arti invites scholars to send article proposals on the topic of The Body of Art for the s. II, 1/XXVIII issue (2019). Below is a description of the topic, which should help scholars who wish to submit a proposal.
TOPIC AND ISSUES
The problem of the body and its representation has for some decades been considered one of the major themes in the history of culture and is a subject of an enquiry that is dealt with by various disciplines. Its centrality in the development of the scientific, artistic and historical thought of the medieval, modern and contemporary age, as well as in a historiographical and methodological reflection, and in the different approaches that define Western civilization in a non-unique way, will be the topic of the next issue of Venezia Arti. The various forms of body representation, its design, its visions, its deformations, and also the many forms of relationship that the body establishes inside the work of art itself – from the dynamics of creation to the engaging relationship with the viewer, to the experienced cognitive backgrounds – will be inquired, from the canon to the different post-human declinations.

Ethical Code of Venezia Arti
Venezia Arti 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.
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 General Editor. The agreement must comply with the Code of Behaviour for Publishers of Scientific Journals, as established by COPE.
The relationship among the General Editor(s), the Editorial Board and the Publisher is based on the principle of publishing independence.
The General Editor(s) are nominated by the Department Director. The General Editor(s) promotes the shape of the Advisory Board and the Editorial Board and can integrate and/or vary the shape of the same. The boards remain in office for 6 years and are automatically renewed for another 6 in the absence of a difference of opinion within the Department Director.
The General Editors of Venezia Arti alone are responsible for the decision to publish the articles submitted.
Submitted articles 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 Venezia Arti Editors.
The Venezia Arti General 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 Venezia Arti General 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 must follow the Guidelines for Authors to be downloaded from the Venezia Arti 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 Venezia Arti 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 Venezia Arti 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.
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 Venezia Arti Editors, providing all the information needed to make the due adjustments.
By means of the peer-review procedure, Reviewers assist the Venezia Arti General Editors 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 Venezia Arti 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.
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.
