FROM MEGA TO NANO: The Complexity of a Multiscalar Project
abstract submission deadline | 5 February 2020



AGATHÓN is an Open Access International Journal of Architecture, Art and Design, a half-year tool for information and critical training; it aims to contribute to the growth and dissemination of knowledge in the themes covered by Architecture, Engineering, Art and (product and visual) Design. Therefore, the Journal represents a scientific place where Authors, who have carried out original research, can find an opportunity to spread their contributions. Each issue of the Journal includes essays and research works on a specific theme, unpublished works and not for publication with other publishers. The Journal through its Editorial Team promotes and monitors double-blind peer review operations as a method of selecting articles, providing a mandatory form for reporting. The contributions will be published in English and Italian language so that they can be placed in the widest range of international research. Founding principles of the Journal are the originality and relevance of the contributions, the rigor of the methodology, but also the easy access and wide dissemination of the articles; furthermore the Journal is open to speculative empirical and descriptive research, about phenomena that present new characters, at least for certain important features.

SECTIONS OF THE JOURNAL | Published articles will be inserted in one of the following sections:
"Focus" (by invitation for well-known Authors and/or Experts in the subject)
"Architecture" (architectural and interior design, urban planning, engineering, technology, history, recovery, restoration, exhibition and museum design, representation)
"Art" (modern and contemporary)
"Design" (for industry, crafts and communication)
and will be classified into the following categories: "Essays & Viewpoint", "Research & Experimentation", "Review Articles" or "Dialogues".

To encourage the publication of contributions by Authors with primary affiliation to Universities and Research Institutions in countries defined by the World Bank as low-income and lower-middle income economies, AGATHÓN will select a maximum of two Authors to publish their contribution for free, subject to the positive outcome of the double-blind peer review process.
