  • Focus e obiettivi

TeMA is an international, scholarly and peer-reviewed journal that publishes original inter-disciplinary papers on the interaction of transport, environment and land use. The broad scope of the journal is to foster the construction of new, scientific and professional skills, on a topic of increasing interest to those who study and work in the fields of the physical transformations of the city and the territory: the integration between the disciplines that study urban transformations and those that address the issues of mobility governance.

  • Peer review

 All papers in the journal undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and double blind refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.

  • Indicizzazione

TeMA is indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Google Scholar and in the catalogues of hundreds of libraries worldwide. We are currently seeking indexing in the Thomson Reuters ISI Index of Scientific Journals in order to enhance and further promote the Journal in the national and international scientific community.
