Focus and Scope

GENUS is an online peer-reviewed - open access - Journal of Population Sciences published by the Sapienza University of Rome with the support of the (Department of Statistical Sciences, Rome. GENUS has adopted an interdisciplinary approach to population studies. It publishes articles of “pure” demography and articles aiming to further a better knowledge of the interrelationship between demography and biological, social and economic phenomena, connected with the evolution of the population. Our editorial staff have a breadth of experience and are affiliated with a variety of academic and research institutions that reflect this interdisciplinary focus. These have spanned not only pure demography but also anthropology and anthropometric, sociology and psychology, biology and genetics.  In keeping with the times -and particularly from 1965 under Nora Federici, and from 1993 under Antonio Golini as directors – an increasing number of articles have been published on general population theories, population dynamics and mathematical demography. GENUS has always tried to promote open dialogue across cultural, ideological and at times theoretical walls in the attempt to understand the complexities underlying population issues. The journal publishes three issues a year, each covering a four-month period of January through April, May through September, October through December.  Print copies “on demand” of GENUS are now available at a cost of 30 Euros each issue (taxes and shipment costs included). For an IUSSP member the cost is a discounted to 20 Euros. GENUS is printed with the financial support of the Sapienza University of Rome. The Department of Statistical Sciences of the Sapienza University of Rome gives the management and technical support, while the DONDENA Centre for Research on Social Dynamics, Bocconi University, Milan takes care of English language. Cover design by Eliseo Sonnino.

Peer Review Process

The journal will not consider for publication papers that have been published elsewhere. Conference proceedings may be submitted and they could be published in special issues . All contributions submitted to Genus are read by the editorial staff (Associate Editors). Only those papers that are most likely to meet our editorial policy are sent out for formal review. Those papers judged to be of insufficient general interest or otherwise inappropriate are rejected promptly without external review. Papers judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent out for formal review, which typically is comprised of a minimum of two reviewers. Based on the reviewers’ recommendations, the editors then make a decision from among the following four options: Accept, with or without revisions Invite the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work might justify a resubmission Reject outright Reviewer selection is crucial to the publication process as the reviewers play a vital role in ensuring that all articles published are of the highest scientific quality. Editors choose the reviewers considering many factors, including reviewer’s expertise and knowledge of the paper topic, and scientific reputation. Reviewers’ as well as authors’ names are kept strictly confidential. GENUS employs double blind reviewing, where both the reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the review process. The Editor must give final approval before a submission can be definitively accepted for publication.
