We publish journals and books in digital format in several research fields, in numerous languages and immediately online in full and free form.
Our content is published as a result of:
All our publications (from single articles or essays to entire monographs) are equipped with a set of metadata describing them and DOIs based on the best reference standards, to favour the widest indexing in the most qualified catalogues and the collection of citations.
The Scientific Direction of each journal independently presides over the editorial and scientific policy; it takes care of the call for papers, the selection of proposals, the identification of qualified reviewers and the subsequent dissemination of the contents. All our journals are published exclusively in digital format.
Our series adopt a completely identical practice to that of the journals. Monographs and edited books are published under the responsibility of a Scientific Direction, which takes care of the verification of the quality of the texts and of the evaluation processes. Our books are systematically published in digital format, and in many cases also in paper edition.

ECF is an Open Access Diamond publisher, which means:
Our cost policy can be summarised according to this scheme:
|READERS||No costs||No costs|
|AUTHORS of journal articles or volume chapters||No costs||No costs|
|AUTHORS of monographs||/||Costs to be borne by the INSTITUTIONS to which they are affiliated|
|EDITORS of edited books||/||Costs to be borne by the INSTITUTIONS to which they are affiliated|
|EDITORS-IN-CHIEF of journals||Whole journal to be borne by the INSTITUTIONS to which they are affiliated||/|
Guaranteeing quality publications requires dedicated and competent staff and a complex IT infrastructure for production and online publication.
ECF applies a fee for each published article or work, which is calculated on the basis of the overall extension of the text measured in folders (each equal to 2,000 characters including spaces). The minimum value of a folder is 4 euros plus VAT (4%). For any exceptions to the application of the fees, see the sections below.
The amount indicated above includes: the management of the peer review process, the editing and type-setting of texts and non-textual contents, a round of proofs with the Authors and a second round of proofs with the Scientific Direction, online publication in PDF format with attribution of ISSN and DOI.
1. Standard papers in journals and edited books
The cost of creating the Open Access digital edition of a standard paper is estimated at € 120.00.
Extension of 20 text folders, abstracts and keywords in English, body of the main text in Italian (monolingual), footnotes, out-of-text citations, bulleted and numbered lists, tables, bibliography.
2. Monograph or edited book
The estimate of the cost of creating the Open Access digital edition of monographic or edited volumes is determined by a multiplicity of elements and factors that must necessarily be weighed on a case-by-case basis. Among these, in addition to the characteristics of the text and its apparatuses, the times in which the publication must be carried out are also considered, taking into account both the editing process and the specific needs of the author and his research activities.
It is possible, in a completely general sense, to determine what are some standard characteristics compared to others that are not standard. This makes it essential to provide ECF with a detailed publication project, using the forms available below in the appropriate area. Based on this information, ECF will provide, in a short period of time, an estimate of the contribution required for the publication.
N.B.: the simple approval of the publication cost estimate is not a sufficient condition to consider the publication approved. The contents must first be evaluated by the Scientific Committee of one of our series and by specially appointed reviewers.
Extension of 200 text folders, abstracts and keywords in English, body of the main text in Italian (monolingual), footnotes, out-of-text citations, bulleted and numbered lists, tables, bibliography.
Increases on the minimum values indicated above are established by the Publisher, case by case, according to four main factors:
According to these criteria, a complete and formal estimate of the total cost of a journal issue, an edited book or a monograph will be presented to the funding body. Substantial deviations between the actual quantity and complexity of the published content compared to what was originally budgeted will be the subject of the final balance, which will be presented at the end of the work to the financing body.
The publication process starts only after the approval of the estimate by the funding body.
The costs are borne exclusively by the affiliation body of the journal.
No cost will be borne by individual authors, nor by members of the Scientific Direction, the Advisory Board or other bodies.

The Open Access and copyright policies of Edizioni Ca’ Foscari are verified and accredited by Sherpa Romeo.
Sherpa Romeo (Rights Metadata for Open archiving) is an international database that aggregates and presents the Open Access policies of publishers and journals and provides a summary of the adopted copyright profile and Open Access archiving policies.
The database informs authors about the forms of pre-print or post-print archiving permitted by the Publisher in the publishing and copyright granting agreements.
Edizioni Ca’ Foscari’s profile can be consulted on this page: https://v2.sherpa.ac.uk/id/publisher/62419.
Edizioni Ca’ Foscari is present in Sherpa Romeo as an editor of both journals and series. This means that the policies ascertained by Sherpa Romeo must be considered valid both for journal articles and for contributions in edited and monographic volumes.
ECF publications are evaluated according to rigorous scientific quality criteria, in accordance with best practices shared by research communities and international open access publishers. The published articles have in fact obtained the favorable opinion of at least two expert evaluators of the subject, through a process of anonymous review (double-blind peer review) conducted under the responsibility of the Advisory Board of the journals.
The evaluation is carried out in accordance with and adherence to the scientific criteria indicated below, and to the editorial criteria of bibliographic completeness and formal consistency of Edizioni Ca’ Foscari.
Every scientific text must undergo a double-blind peer review. Certain types of texts are excluded from this procedure, such as: introductions, prefaces, editorials, reviews and the like. Based on the choices made by the individual advisory boards, texts or entire volumes deriving from conferences or other contexts that have already passed an evaluation process can be excluded from the double-blind peer review. In the event of failure to perform a double blind peer review, due notice will be given within the publication.
Revision policies for the different sections:
ECF is the University Press of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. It has an Editorial Board that is made up of a coordinator and a representative of each of the subject areas of the University.
The Editorial Board receives, evaluates and approves each proposal for a new Journal/Series on the basis of the following criteria:
The Editorial Board of ECF works to ensure compliance with these basic criteria and has powers of control and veto over the work of the advisory boards of each Journal/Series, in case evident omissions on their part are found.
ECF provides all users with access to a peer review platform called ECFPeerflow, designed and developed by ECF itself. The recommended scientific evaluation standard is that of the double-blind peer review by scholars and researchers external to the advisory boards of the journals and specifically appointed by them.
ECF offers constant and timely support in the use of the platform through the email contact email@example.com.
The Scientific Direction of the Journal/Series is autonomous and independent in the conduct of the Call for Papers, in the choice of peer reviewers, in the conduct of the evaluations, in compliance with ECF policy and general warnings.
The Advisory Board identifies the reviewers exclusively from its own externals and it is recommended that they do not belong to the institution to which the journal is affiliated. Reviewers must have an adequate curriculum and an appreciable number of publications, preferably themselves subjected to quality control procedures.
Within the peer review platform, the Journal/Series has a specific profile, whose accountable and main manager is the Editor-in-Chief.
Compliance with regular publication according to the periodicity of the Journal is the responsibility of the Editor-in-Chief.
The assignment of the articles to the Reviewers is carried out exclusively through the ECF editorial platform by the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal/Series, who is responsible for meeting the review deadlines.
The Editors of each Journal/Series (Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board) take care of the creation of the profiles of their Authors and Reviewers within the editorial platform, undertaking to enter – and keep updated – all their personal information.
Each article is uploaded anonymously to the platform by the Author and is assigned by the Editor-in-Chief to a pair of Reviewers. The Author and the Reviewers cannot come into contact with each other, not even indirectly, during the entire evaluation process.
To ensure the proper conduct of the mutually anonymous scientific evaluation processes of the articles (double-blind peer review), every care must be taken so that the identity of the Authors and Reviewers remains mutually unknown. Therefore it is essential that the Authors and Reviewers (if the latter attach their own documents to the refereeing form) – and any other operating subject – before uploading any document, remove from all the documents subjected to peer review:
ECF editorial staff verifies that the documents comply with the aforementioned editorial guidelines and has the right to reject and request an adaptation of articles not suitable for the standards of the Journal/Series.
The Reviewer has to determine if the document is:
If the document is ‘accepted’, the Reviewer has to specify if it is:
The Reviewer justifies his/her decision by filling in an evaluation form in which he/she expresses a qualitative judgment of the article regarding the following items:
The Reviewer has to select one of the following five levels:
However, for each of these judgments it is possible to add a discursive comment.
The article is considered as ‘rejected’ by the evaluation system if even only one of the two Reviewers rejects it. In this case, the Editor-in-Chief may submit the document to a third judgment.
If the Reviewers have requested changes to the article, the Author must provide a second version, whose acceptance will be subject to the favourable opinion of the Editor-in-Chief.
At the end of the peer review process, ECF further verifies that the document complies with the prescribed editorial guidelines and, if necessary, requests the Editor-in-Chief or the Editorial Board to adapt or to have the document conformed to the established standards. The process is then concluded and the editorial staff starts the process of publishing the evaluated and accepted documents.
The entire review process is tracked, stored and archived in the platform database, which resides on a server managed by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Authors and Reviewers maintain access to the archive linked to their respective profiles, where a track of all the activities carried out is kept.
The timing of publication of an article coincides with the periodicity of publication of the journals, which can be quarterly, half-yearly or yearly. As a consequence of this, the publication of a paper that has had a positive evaluation at the end of the peer review process will usually take place in conjunction with the first scheduled issue of the journal, except for decisions taken autonomously by the Scientific Directions that may decide to postpone the publication to the issue that immediately follows.
N.B.: ECF offers one more opportunity to reduce publication times. A paper that has obtained a positive evaluation during the peer review process and has completed its editing process is published online immediately and in advance of the scheduled release date of the complete issue in which it is included. This is a method of publication in progress of the issues that allows the early publication of the individual articles. This method offers an advantage for authors who have promptly submitted the proposal and passed the peer review. The articles published in this way have the same status as those published in a complete issue and as such can be used by researchers in the context of their academic activity.
The timing of publication of a monograph and an edited books varies depending on the time in the calendar year in which the proposals are presented and in which the manuscripts are concluded after the peer review process.
Indicatively it is necessary to consider the average duration of four phases:
The duration of these phases may vary in relation to multiple contingent factors (extent and characteristics of the contents, course of revisions, etc.), which will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and shared with the Scientific Directions and with the authors.
ECF plans its editorial calendar on the basis of four publication windows over the calendar year and considers programmable for publication within one of the 4 windows indicated below the projects that have completed the aforementioned phase 3 – i.e. they are ready in their complete drafting:
The projects completed in their final version after the end of September will be published between the second half of February and the end of March of the following year.
ECF carries out systematic archiving of all content published in the PHAIDRA perennial conservation archive.
ECF is the Press of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, whose institutional archive is ARCA. Authors affiliated with Ca’ Foscari can, from the moment of publication, make the deposit of the full text in ARCA without the need for other authorisations. In parallel, ECF recommends that non-Ca’ Foscari authors make a similar deposit in the institutional archive of the universities of their affiliation.
ECF also uses the Internet Archive as an additional long-term international archive.
Crossref exists to make scholarly communications better.
We are member of a non-profit organisation that runs a registry of metadata and DOIs, and involves staff, board, working groups, and committees as well as a broad range of collaborators, users, and supporters in the wider scholarly communications community. Together, we are all working toward the same goal – to enhance scholarly communications. Everything is designed to put scholarly content in context so that the content members publish can be found, cited, used, and re-used.
Crossref helps increase discoverability and create persistent links between research outputs such as articles, books, references, data, components, versions, and more. Crossref members send their metadata – which include fields such as dates, titles, authors, affiliations, etc. – to Crossref, together with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), which allows to always retrieve an object even if the website changes.
Through Crossref, members are distributing their metadata downstream, making it available to numerous systems and organisations that together help credit and cite the work, track outcomes and activity, and more.
You can find more information here: https://www.crossref.org/about/.
As a Crossref member, ECF participates to the i4oc initiative.
The aim of this initiative is to promote the availability of data on citations that are structured, separable, and open.
Structured means the data representing each publication and each citation instance are expressed in common, machine-readable formats, and that these data can be accessed programmatically. Separable means the citation instances can be accessed and analysed without the need to access the source bibliographic products (such as journal articles and books) in which the citations are created. Open means the data are freely accessible and reusable.
ECF systematically indexes all its journals in DOAJ.
DOAJ is an independent index that contains almost 17,500 peer-reviewed, open access journals, from all countries and in all languages, covering all areas of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, arts and humanities.
DOAJ's mission is to increase the visibility, accessibility, reputation, usage and impact of quality, peer-reviewed, open access scholarly research journals globally, regardless of discipline, geography or language. DOAJ will work with editors, publishers and journal owners to help them understand the value of best practice publishing and standards and to apply those to their own operations. DOAJ is committed to being 100% independent and maintaining its primary services and metadata as free to use or reuse for everyone.
ECF has obtained for its journals the DOAJ Seal that is awarded to journals that demonstrate best practice in open access publishing, long term preservation, use of persistent identifiers, discoverability, reuse policies and authors' rights.
Around 10% of all journals indexed in DOAJ have been awarded the Seal.
ECF systematically indexes all its journals in ERIH PLUS.
ERIH PLUS is an index holding bibliographic information on academic journals in the Social Sciences and Humanities. The aim of the index is to increase visibility, searchability and availability of the published contents. ERIH PLUS is an online service, and it grants updated data on European journals. The main target group of the index are researchers and research within a European framework.
The methods of publication of ECF comply in accordance with the requirements required by Scopus. Thanks to this, our journals are systematically eligible for Scopus and currently many of them have been accepted and indexed.
This line of conduct is also held by ECF with regard to specialist and sectoral indices in the various research ambitions to which the journals are nominated, in accordance with and according to the indications of the individual scientific directions.
