How to publish in this journal


ZARCH adopts a double perspective. Firstly, a global vision, that is international, although with its headquarters in our university and in the Spanish and European sphere, which implies coming to terms that most of the contributions are published in English, even though it seems compatible with a special attention to the Latin languages, not only in Spanish but also in French, Italian, Portuguese and others. Secondly, an interdisciplinary, transversal approximation with integrating visions, starting from the architectural field but open to other disciplines according with the changing limits and situations that today characterize the architecture field and urban studies. This leads us to the acceptance of close disciplines, from social sciences to technical visions, with logic condition of the scientific quality of contributions, previously evaluated by a rigorous system of arbitration. In any case, the Scientific Council's advice to the magazine, guarantees the rigour and the attention to the standpoints and methodologies more innovative in our fields.
