Edizioni Ca’ Foscari (ECF) publishes journals and monographic series in digital format in all areas of academic
research. All publications are made available online with free and open access, in order to bolster
and encourage the free sharing of knowledge.
All texts and research are published after an evaluation process carried out by the Scientific Committee, which will ensure their quality. They are then subjected to the Editorial Staff and are treated with the purpose of indexing in the major bibliographic online databases.
Edizioni Ca’ Foscari was born in 2011 with the aim of encouraging the dissemination of research results within the University and from here to both the national and international scientific community, relying on the opportunities offered by digital technologies.

Within this profile, Edizioni Ca’ Foscari adopts a method that provides:
Each journal or volume, and the individual contributions within them, are published in a PDF format
that is freely consultable and downloadable. A printed edition is also produced, where required, and
can be distributed commercially, where appropriate.
