All manuscripts will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. Since its foundation in 2014, «Ticontre» is regularly published twice a year, with a total of ten issues and 165 papers. In the last four years, pdf articles were downloaded more than 65,000 times. Up to thirty per cent of them are written in a language other than Italian and authors belong to over seventy different universities, half of which abroad. «Ticontre» is indexed in ERIH PLUS and in the ANVUR (Agenzia Nazionale di Valutazione del Sistema Universitario e della Ricerca) official list of Class A scientific journals in the following areas: 10/E1; 10/F1; 10/F2; 10/F3; 10/F4; 10/H1; 10/I1; 10/L1; 10/M1; 10/M2.
