Diritto costituzionale. Rivista quadrimestrale undertakes an ambitious project. Many legal journals are already present in the field of constitutional law, some of them are the most traditional and prestigious print reviews, others belong to a multitude of on-line journals which are considerably growing in the recent times and are quickly accredited by the scientific community.
Constitutional law is a very energetic matter, stimulated by on going Italian and foreign institutional events as well as by the issues of the difficult European integration process, but also fueled by constitutional and European courts case-law. So that the scientific reviews are inevitably provoked to focus their attention on the current news more than on the theoretical context. Obviously, on this ground on-line journals enjoy an unbearable advantage over traditional print magazines. Diritto costituzionale. Rivista quadrimestrale does not intend to compete with other periodicals in pursuing information and comment of the on going events. It is characterised by a strictly monographic setting, in which each issue is dedicated to one specific theoretical high-profile theme. The editor of each issue chooses the specific topics to be developed and the authors to invite. The editorial plan is the result of a collegial choice of the direction board; it covers an entire two-year period and is indicated by the review itself, so that anyone interested can make a proposal, announcing the specific subject he/she intends deal with. The Magazine is therefore "open" and happy to accommodate anyone's essay in scheduled topics. Papers are also welcome in languages other than Italian, whether they come "on invitation" or are spontaneously proposed.

Papers submitted to the journal are typically screened by the editor or one of the associate editors to determine whether the manuscript falls within Journal’s Aims and Scope and satisfies the academic standards of the field. Papers are then assigned to an editor who oversees the entire editorial process including the final decision on the manuscript. If judged suitable for publication, the manuscript is sent to at least two independent referees for double blind peer review. Based on their recommendation, as well as possible consultation between Editorial Board members, the editor decides whether the paper should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected.
