Our journal provides an effective way to publish research and review articles, short communications and case studies. Also book reviews and commentaries are welcomed (more info HERE). The articles will be managed electronically, examined by a scientific committee and anonymous evaluators and published every months in HTML and PDF formats.

The journal will maintain the essential characteristics of scientific publications: to have an Editorial Board that evaluates the quality of the article contents, to reflect the state of the art in sciences provided that they make an important contribution to the wealth of knowledge in the subject. The electronic media allows us to overcome the deficiencies of paper editions in terms of its immediateness and the incorporation of multimedia and hypertext.
