Community Message:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The global COVID-19 (corona virus) pandemic is deeply changing our daily lives and our understanding of the world. The editorial board of «XVIII Secolo» express solidarity with all the health care workers — doctors, nurses, technicians, medical staff, administrators – taking care of those affected by the pandemic and to the researchers working under challenging conditions to bring this outbreak to a close.
As researchers and citizens around the world we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.
People closely associated with the journal are working remotely. Nevertheless, we are processing submissions and communications as normal, and will continue to deliver information resources through our platform.

The Call is now open!  (more info)
