The journal is divided into three sections: Dossier, Studies and Reviews. The Dossier section is open to the publication of monographic topics, necessarily interdisciplinary, coordinated and reviewed by a specialist in the field. The Studies section publishes original and unpublished research papers sent to the journal, once they pass the anonymous evaluation process by external experts. The Reviews section publishes critical reviews of significant monographs in the thematic scope of the journal.
