The submission of the articles must be done by logging on the website of the journal, following the procedure that is divided into five steps:

1. In the first step, the author of the submission has to specify the section of the journal for which he/she make the submission (FOCUS section dedicated to the specific topic of the journal number or LUME section devoted to the general theme of the land-use, transport, and environmental interactions)

  • Abstract: max 1,700 characters (including spaces);
  • The text of the article should be between 30,000 to 50,000 characters (including spaces).

In the text, references should be entered eg: (Author, 2005). Bibliographical references should be ordered alphabetically and formatted according to the APA citation style. Images must be commented on by a brief caption.

3. In the third step of the procedure, the author has to fill in the metadata (name, surname, email, URL, Affiliation, country, biography, title, abstract, organization of support, references, keywords, etc).

4. In the fourth step is given to the author the ability to send any additional files (such as images or videos, etc..).

5. In the fifth step, the submission is concluded. The corresponding author will receive a confirmation e-mail and the progress of his/her submission can be followed through the editorial process by logging in.

The editorial board assigns each item to an Editor who has the task of keeping the relationship with the author and follow the verification process of the scientific quality of the proposed text. The Editor will proceed to a preliminary reading, which may also involve requests for assistance to the author. The item will then be forwarded to the double-blind peer-review: the text will be anonymously evaluated by two (or more) people whose judgment will remain anonymous to the authors.


Second phase: Editing
If the proposal is accepted and successfully passed the peer-review process, the Editor will provide authors with a template in .doc format for the final layout of the article. The author will have to provide, within the time specified by the editor, the following materials:

  • a text file format. Doc, formatted in the template provided, respecting the number of characters and styles as specified in the template for the different parts of the article (title, authors, affiliations, text, etc.. ).
  • a representative image of the article with a resolution of 300 dpi in size 200x200 pixels.

The quality of figures and graphs will be subject to verification and the authors are responsible for any authorization for the publication of the images contained in the article and subjected to copyright. Authors can send the authorization, if necessary, to the email address redazione.tema@unina.it.
