Submission Types

Ardeth accepts manuscripts in two submission types: Peer Reviewed Manuscripts and Solicited Manuscripts. These manuscripts are primarily text based (length 3÷6,000 words including notes, captions, and references). Essays should be grounded in relevant discourse, offer an original and critical contribution of a theoretical or a more empirical nature, and be supported by appropriate visual apparatus. Images have an argumentative and not illustrative nature.

Peer Reviewed Manuscripts

To submit a manuscript for peer-review, please email your manuscript to the Editorial Secretary ( Authors are requested to follow the submission guidelines carefully (download) Manuscripts not prepared accordingly will be returned to authors and this will inevitably lead to a delay in the editorial processing of the manuscript.

Solicited Manuscripts

Solicited manuscripts are sent directly to the editors and usually serve as the leading articles of a special issue that has previously been approved. Authors are free to express their own opinions. Editors retain normal editorial responsibilities, including the right of rejection. Please consult with the Editors before submitting un-solicited manuscripts of this type.

Visual Essay

Ardeth welcomes visual essays for the special section of the magazine that is primarily image-based and specialized in the production of knowledge through images; a visual essay is allowed a written text of less than 1,000 words to support images (including endnotes and references). Authors are requested to follow the image submission guidelines carefully. This section of Ardeth wishes to regularly feature innovative proposals that address the development of the project as intellectual technology of textual and figurative nature. Each issue of Ardeth will select and discuss articles centered around a graphic proposal (design drawings, diagrams, diachonic representations, maps) able to suggest measurable and falsifiable developments for the project of architecture.

Book Reviews and other short contributions

Book reviews, conference calls, short reports and the like should be sent to the Editorial Secretary ( These materials will be considered for publication either on-line or in the printed version of the magazine. Length should not exceed 500 words.
