The Working Paper Series in Public and Cultural Diplomacy (WPSPCD) hosts contributions from young scholars and advanced researchers, experts and practitioners in the fields of public and cultural diplomacy. Students graduated in the Master programme in Public and Cultural Diplomacy (University of Siena) have the opportunity to publish an excerpt of their thesis manuscript if awarded with a special distinction (cum laude and merit of publication). Papers are reviewed by at least two referees appointed by the editorial board. Authors must comply with submission guidelines and requirements established by the editorial board, which maintains the rights to request any necessary corrections to the authors and to perform all necessary adjustments with regard to style and format of the text.
The aims of the Working Paper Series in Public and Cultural Diplomacy (WPSPCD) are: to encourage original scientific contributions on issues and topics related to public and cultural diplomacy; to foster interdisciplinary research and knowledge exchange between academics and practitioners; to promote the activities organised by faculty members and visiting scholars (e.g., guest lectures e conference proceedings) within the Master programme in Public and Cultural Diplomacy (LM-81); to host and give visibility to the contributions of the most distinguished students of the Master programme in Public and Cultural Diplomacy.
