Proposals of monographic sections

AGER considers proposals of monographic sections comprising three or four articles sharing a common theme. Proposals must be sent to the editor’s e-mail address:

The proposal must include a motivation (around 500 words) and a list of articles, including for each of these the name of the author, his/her affiliation, the title of the article and an abstract (around 200 words).

Proposals of monographic sections are assessed by the journal’s editorial board, which will make a decision in two weeks’ time. If this decision is positive, then every article in the proposal goes through a review process that is similar to that of all other articles submitted to AGER.
