Edizioni Ca' Foscari – Digital Publishing

Edizioni Ca’ Foscari (ECF) publishes journals and monographic series in digital format in all areas of academic research. All publications are made available through the Internet with free and open access, in order to bolster and encourage the free sharing of knowledge.
All texts and research are published after an evaluation process carried out by the Scientific Committee, which will ensure their quality. They are then subjected to the Editorial Staff and are treated with the purpose of indexing in the major bibliographic online databases.

Edizioni Ca’ Foscari was born in 2011 with the aim of encouraging the dissemination of research results within the University and from here to both the national and international scientific community, relying on the opportunities offered by digital technologies.


Edizioni Ca’ Foscari carries out its activity in the field of the scientific publishing adopting the Open Access principles and following the so-called ‘gold road’, which determines the direct and immediate accessibility of the published scientific research. Within this profile, Edizioni Ca’ Foscari adopts a method that provides:

  1. the double-blind peer review;
  2. complete editing and verification of compliance with editorial standards shared by the international scientific community;
  3. production and management of metadata useful for the dissemination of published research.

The ultimate goal of Edizioni Ca’ Foscari is to use the publications produced to promote the dissemination of scientific research for the benefit of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, as well as of other universities or research institutions that have published and will publish with it.


This collection aims to enhance the dissemination of the scientific production of Ca' Foscari, guaranteeing at the same time the long-term preservation of this important academic heritage.
Monographs, periodicals, essays and other documents will be made available to the scientific community with the hope, however, of reaching a wider and more diverse audience, first and foremost, in the area where Ca' Foscari University has been located for 150 years.
