Sociologia urbana e rurale has been founded in 1979 by Paolo Guidicini. Maurizio Bergamaschi is the current General Editor. This journal is promoted and managed by the Center for Studies on City and Territory Problems (Ce.P.Ci.T) of the Department of Sociology and Business Law at the University of Bologna and is published quarterly by Franco Angeli. Sociologia urbana e rurale It is the only Italian journal of sociology of the environment and the territory and publishes theoretical and empirical studies mainly related to the transformations of urban and rural areas. Particular attention is paid to their socio-spatial configurations, poverty and social exclusion, urban governance, migratory movements at local and international scale, environmental issues, architectural design and urban planning, tourism, and new metropolitan populations. The journal also includes methodological essays, history of the discipline, and bibliographic reviews on specific topics. The journal does not intend to limit itself to sociology, but rather to revive the debate with other disciplines and professional figures, particularly architects, urbanists and geographers, interrupted for some time. The journal intends to broaden publishing opportunities, to stimulate debate, and to compare ideas and research results. This journal not only uses the collaboration with Italian scholars but also with international ones, and for this reason, prominent European and American researchers have agreed to join the Executive Board. The structure of the journal includes a monographic section in every issue, committed to one or two editors, indicated by the steering Committee, presented and introduced by them, but it also includes, in a second section, studies and researches, reports, reflections on specific disciplinary aspects, bibliographical reviews of the most up-to-date literature. Each journal issue has also a section for national and international books reviews. Each year, the Executive Board plans the topics of the monographic section and its editors. Editors are committed to launch an international call for paper that will be advertised on the journal’s website and on the Sociology of Territory section website of the Italian Association of Sociology (AIS), or directly requesting potential contributors. The Executive Board reserves the right to evaluate proposals for the monographic section of the journal. All authors are invited to submit a monographic number to the Executive Board. The articles are expected to be published in one of the following languages: Italian, French, English, German and Spanish. The articles proposed for publication are submitted to an Evaluation Committee. The authors must present their articles with a brief summary (10 lines) and 6 key words in Italian and English.
