Aims and scope

Annals of the Fondazione Luigi Einaudi is a new (peer-reviewed, biannual) international series of Annali della Fondazione Luigi Einaudi founded in 1967. Since then, the Annali have served as a forum for the free exchange of ideas among historians, economists and political scientists, as well as other social scientists. In line with this tradition, the Annals aim at facilitating communication and encouraging cross-fertilization of ideas among both established international scholars and younger scholars working in the field of history, economics, political science, and other social disciplines, with a view to fostering interdisciplinarity. To this end, authors are requested to use rigorous style and language, but accessible to scholars belonging to different fields of social sciences.

The Editors welcome submissions from authors from across the humanities and social sciences, including in particular economics, political science, and history. Submissions that are interdisciplinary in nature, and theoretical and methodological articles on inter-disciplinary relations are also welcomed. Special issues are edited by the guest editors in collaboration with the Annals Editors and members of the Editorial Board. These issues may include solicited essays, but are mainly comprised of essays that are submitted to a call for papers (proposals are reviewed by the Editors; the submission process is subject to a peer-review process).

Peer review policy

All articles published in the Annals undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial screening by the editors and refereeing by two anonymous referees.
The journal considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that:

  • the manuscript is your own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including your own previously published work.
  • the manuscript has been submitted only to The Annals of the Fondazione Luigi Einaudi; it is not under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere.
  • the manuscript contains nothing that is abusive, defamatory, libellous, obscene, fraudulent, or illegal.
