About Pad

PAD Pages on Arts & Design is an international, peer-reviewed e-journal published once a year, plus some special editions. PAD publishes original and qualified intellectual production in all area of design and arts research.

PAD Journal provides an international and interactive forum for the exchange of ideas, debate and criticism. PAD findings from researchers and professionals across different countries and cultures of the Mediterranean areas and encourages research on the impact of cultural factors on design theory and practice.

PAD is the evolution of the online magazine PalermoDesign founded by Vanni Pasca in 2005. From 2005 until 2011, PAD overviewed the opening of new geographies of design with specific focus on the Mediterranean area. On 2010, the ADI Index selection included Pad for its excellence in design research. In 2011 PAD changes and expands its international organization becoming the node of a network of scholars engaged in research and its dissemination in the field of design culture, arts, and more. In 2012, PAD actives a double blind peer review process.

Keeping the focus on the Mediterranean reality, today PAD involves researchers and design experts located in different geographical areas to solicit debate on-demand hot topics, in addition to monitoring initiatives, activities, events and projects in emerging areas of Maghreb and Mashrek. The support of its International Scientific Committee encourage theoretical reflections on the themes of arts and design, expanding their field of action with other disciplines, their ability to understand cultural, technological, economic and social changes on the making. PAD will continue to promote the “Mediterranean Design Contest” to stimulate exchange and confrontation on design practice.

The multilingual journal is published in English and Italian as well as in the other languages of the original articles to reach the worldwide network of readers and extend local design cultures. The publication of each issue will coincide with the publication of the call for papers for the following monographic issue on Call page. The journal is identified by an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN 1972-7887). Each author retains the copyright of his work.
