ACE: architecture, city and environment

Presentation
Presentation
 
AIM

Arquitectura, Ciudad y Entorno es el nombre elegido para nombrar a esta publicación. Con esas tres palabras quisimos reflejar el espíritu abierto de la Revista dedicada al estudio, desde la más amplia de las perspectivas, del hábitat humano, tanto en su vertiente macro como micro, tanto en su acepción más tecnológica como social. Palabras que además tienen la bondad de resumirse en el mismo acrónimo con independencia de que estén en lengua castellana, catalana o inglesa. De esta forma pusimos a disposición de las ricas investigaciones arquitectónicas, urbanísticas y territoriales, una ventana para abordar la difusión de las diferentes disciplinas que se encargan de su desarrollo. ACE es, por tanto, una revista propia para la discusión en la frontera de las disciplinas del conocimiento, abierta a nuevos enfoques de estudio, y sobre todo, una alternativa especialmente diseñada a difundir los resultados en las lenguas que nos resultan familiares y que, sin olvidar la capacidad universal de difusión del inglés, debemos potenciar.

La Revista es un Open Access Journal, y por tanto, su acceso y consulta es gratuito, de manera que su existencia y continuidad sólo puede explicarse gracias al esfuerzo del Centro de Política de Suelo y Valoraciones (CPSV) de la Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (UPC), así como de todas las personas colaboradoras externas que se encargan de la difusión de la revista, fungen como evaluadoras externas de los artículos o son corresponsales en los diferentes países en los que nos encontramos presentes. La Revista es impulsada por la Red homónima formada, además de la UPC, por la Universidad de Guadalajara (México) y la del Bio Bio (Chile).

La sección principal de la Revista está dedicada a dar difusión a trabajos científicos, si bien está acompañada por una sección destinada a contener los resúmenes de tesis de máster y tesinas, y otra más sobre notas técnicas. Regularmente la Revista publica números monográficos cuyos contenidos y diseño es encomendado a editores invitados especialistas de reconocido prestigio en las materias abordadas.
