Why publish with FUP?

The fundamental principle in FUP is that ideas, discoveries and research outcomes must be freely accessible to the general public. Our mission, as a leading Open Access publisher, is  to publish the latest, high quality research from all over the world, and disseminate it as rapidly and as broadly as possible.


Our reviewers and members of the editorial boards are international experts in their fields: history, law, cultural studies, communication, social justice and hard sciences. They rigorously operate in compliance with FUP ethics and publishing guidelines, ensuring the robustness and the top-level quality of the publications.


From the article submission to the final acceptance, FUP editorial processes are focused to guarantee a rapid publication, avoiding superlous and time-wasting delays.

After acceptance, the articles are freely available as “Just Accepted” within 48 hours, under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY).


FUP Journals are indexed in the major databases,  search engines and institutional repositories: Scopus, Web of Science, Science Citation Index, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), ERIH PLUS, Anvur Classe A, JSTOR, Google Scholar. 

All these data feed into Article-level metrics (ALMs) that assess the usage and the global impact of your work.  


FUP encourages all the author to disclose their experimental data and research outcomes, making them fully available.  All journals are integrated with their own repository on the Dataverse Network as standard. Dataverse is an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. It enables data validation and allows the replication of others’ work more easily.
