Firenze University Press: Peer Review Process up to December 2010

Publication proposals are submitted to the FUP Editorial Board by the Editorial Manager, together with an initial editorial, technical and economic evaluation. The FUP Editorial Board – composed of eminent scholars covering a wide range of humanistic and social disciplines and natural, technological and biomedical sciences – evaluates the proposal and either accepts it for publication, rejects it or decides to request a revision from the author. The decisions of the Board are based on a peer review; this is carried out by the members of the Board, where appropriately qualified, or is entrusted to one or more academic referees external to the Board.

Publication proposals can be submitted to the FUP Editorial Board directly by the author, or by a recognised Scientific Committee following submission of a plan approved by the FUP Editorial Board.
The ultimate decision regarding publication nevertheless lies with the FUP Editorial Board.

The names of the members of the FUP Editorial Board and those of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue (over thirty) are published in the online FUP Catalogue.
The members of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue are also indicated on a specific page of each publication (rear of half title page).

Firenze University Press: Peer Review Process from January 2011

Publication proposals are submitted to the FUP Editorial Board by the Editorial Manager, together with an initial editorial, technical and economic evaluation. The FUP Editorial Board – composed of eminent scholars covering a wide range of humanistic and social disciplines and natural, technological and biomedical sciences – evaluates the proposal and either accepts it for publication, rejects it or decides to request a revision from the author. Where revision is required, compliance with the requested changes is monitored by the editorial staff. In the event of discrepancies, the publication is submitted anew to the FUP Editorial Board for a final evaluation.

Publication proposals can be submitted to the FUP Editorial Board directly by the author, or by a recognised Scientific Committee belonging to the FUP Catalogue.

The individual submissions are subject to dual peer review (one by a member of the FUP Editorial Board and one by an academic referee external to the Board).
Publications proposed by the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue must be accompanied by the opinions of two referees: one peer review by a member of the proposing Committee and one by an academic referee external to the Committee. The ultimate decision regarding publication nevertheless lies with the FUP Editorial Board, which must give its approval.

Without prejudice to the required approval of the FUP Editorial Board for all publication proposals, in exceptional cases the requirement for external peer review may be waived in view of the intrinsic nature of certain works.

The names of the members of the FUP Editorial Board and those of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue (over thirty) are published in the online FUP Catalogue. The members of the Scientific Committees belonging to the FUP Catalogue are also indicated on a specific page of each publication (rear of half title page). The peer review criteria of the above Scientific Committees are also published in the online FUP Catalogue.

Abstract

This book proposes theoretical reflections, tools and techniques for a business ethic that aims at the construction of social welfare. A correct connotation of business ethics is seen in its role of interface between the ontology of the "enterprise phenomenon" and the social ethics of its operation. The book upholds the theory that business development can be such only if it leads to the emancipation of the persons affected by the same. A development in which, that is, it is not only the economic results that have bearing, but above all the way in which they are obtained and exploited. In enterprise, too, priority should hence be given to a practice implemented in a conscientious manner which enhances the complete development of the persons involved, whether they are workers or consumers.

Abstract

Like all the books in this series, this volume proposes wide-ranging reflections and cultural considerations pertinent to business management. Traditionally, realism is identified with a disenchanted approach to reality which is counterpoised to all forms of ideology or utopia. What is proposed here is a strategic realism which supports a humanist approach to enterprise, while steering clear of both cynicism and idealism. Seen from this angle, the crucial aspects of strategy are: the opportune selection of attainable advantages; interest as the spur to change; stratagem as a lever on the trend of events; the plan which traces the route of the opportunities called up, and the action that harvests the fruits.

Abstract

The subject of economic valorisation has become a current topic and the idea that culture can be considered a factor of economic production, able to generate wealth, appears to have been generally accepted. The book consists of a series of essays about the economic valorisation of the cultural, artistic and environmental heritage of the art city of Florence using a business economics approach and will appeal to scholars and researchers focusing on the cultural economics and managerial economics of art and to practitioners in the cultural sector and policy makers.

Abstract

The proceedings published here relate to a conference that was proposed to focus on a decisive aspect of cataloguing. Authority control is the process that ensures the formal uniformity of the options selected for access: author, title, institution, subject. Authority control is an operation that integrates the catalogue architecture, contributing to achieve its objectives by addressing the quality of the registration indices. In addition to offering an opportunity for exchange between the leading world experts in the sector, the conference was also designed to make a contribution to the debate on the review of the national cataloguing codes and their possible harmonisation.

Abstract

The transformations of our society place the onus on the teaching professions to acquire new skills to enable them to respond to the needs of a complex reality in constant evolution. This is why the Degree Course for Professional Educator has gone through ongoing radical changes over recent years, designed to synthesise the theoretical and practical dimensions. This book is aimed at recording such changes in the attempt to provide a snapshot of the youth universe through the discussion of data emerging from a questionnaire, and the analysis of various scholastic autobiographies written by the students themselves. The objective of the publication is to understand the backgrounds of our students, what are their relations with the school and with the teachers, what expectations they have in relation to the academic world and their future in professional and personal terms. The book is therefore aimed at secondary school teachers, at University teachers and at the educators themselves, as well as at all those who are engaged with young people and adolescence in various capacities.

Abstract

Social accounting is a way of measuring and assessing the economic and social results achieved by a non-profit body. It is in the light of this observation that the project "SOCIAL ACCOUNTING OF THE NON-PROFIT BODIES" has been launched, involving the Tuscan Regional Authority, the Provincial Authorities of Florence and Pistoia, Cesvot, Le Reti di Kilim association and the Department of Business Science of the University of Florence. An important phase of theoretical research resulted in the publication PISR no. 2, "Observations on the issue of social accounting" in May 2002. Following this, the research approach finalised at the identification of a model of reference for the social accounting process of third sector organisations highlighted the need to concretise what had been elaborated. In other words, to apply the previous theoretical conclusions to certain "pilot" bodies and to report on the experience. More specifically, this work reports several processes of social accounting in which the authors have taken part. For each of these a grid of summary and comments has been prepared, with the purpose of facilitating a comparative reading.

Abstract

The correspondence between Renato Fucini and Emilia Peruzzi, which embraces a period of time comprised between 1871 and 1899, provides a colourful picture of late nineteenth-century Florentine and Italian society. Parading before our eyes are leading figures from Italian political and literary circles, such as Sonnino, Pareto, De Amicis and Ada Negri, who were part of the prestigious entourage that gravitated around the Peruzzi salon. The letters contained in the book throw new light on the personality of Fucini, while at the same time elucidating the biographical details of his life which are still little known and studied.

Abstract

The present catalogue seeks to provide a comprehensive record of the 1,532 editions printed in the 15th and 16th centuries held in the legal historical section of the Biblioteca di Scienze Sociali of the Università degli Studi di Firenze. This library is the successor to that of the Facoltà di Giurisprudenza, the nucleus of which remains the historic collection of the Collegio degli Avvocati di Firenze acquired in 1924. Supplemented by further important acquisitions, including the library of the Corte di Appello di Firenze, the collection has come to be numbered among the foremost in its fi eld in Italy. It exhibits a wide range not only of the famous medieval authors of the ius commune, but also of the growing number of contemporary 16th century jurists.
