Sage to publish Forum Italicum from May 2013


SAGE and the Center for Italian Studies at Stony Brook University today announced a new agreement to publish Forum Italicum from May 2013.

Forum Italicum, a peer-reviewed journal, was founded in 1967 by M.Ricciardelli as a forum for discussion on Italian literature, culture and language. Edited by Mario Mignone and published three times a year from 2013, Forum Italicum focuses on providing a balanced and wide ranging perspective on Italian culture by accepting both scholarly writings and other contributions of general Italian interest, to ensure a fresh, critical outlook on subjects pertaining to the heritage of Italy.

"We are delighted to have been selected to publish this prestigious journal, Forum Italicum," said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. "SAGE has a strong portfolio of journals in the fields of cultural studies, language and literature, representing leading scholars within each of these disciplines. We see Forum Italicum as a key journal for extending discussions on cultural studies and we look forward to helping it grow internationally and developing it as part of our humanities portfolio."

"Forum Italicum is excited about the prosperous future a partnership with SAGE will bring," commented Mario Mignone, Editor. "We believe that SAGE understands the value of our journal and their dedication to publishing high quality, distinctive, research is closely aligned with our own core values. It is important to us to maintain the quality of our research within the international humanities sector and to reach a truly global audience. SAGE's international market structure will enable us to do this. Through the services that they offer to their authors and editors, it is a relationship we look forward to developing."

The first SAGE issue will publish in May 2013. The new website will be where the full back archive of Forum Italicum issues will also be hosted.
