1. Mission Statement

        OASE is an independent, international, peer-reviewed journal for architecture that brings together academic discourse and the sensibilities of design practice. OASE advocates critical reflection in which the architectural project occupies a central position, yet is understood to be embedded in a wider cultural field. Intersections and affinities with other disciplines are explored in order to gain a more profound understanding of the practice and theory of architecture and rearticulate its disciplinary limits. Published two times a year, each OASE provides a rigorous investigation of a specific theme, featuring architecture, urban design and landscape design and insisting on the discussion of the historical and theoretical aspects of contemporary issues.

      3. Publication Ethics

        OASE defends high standards of expected ethical behaviour of all parties involved in the act of publishing: the authors, the editors, the peer reviewers, the publishers and the community of academic architecture journals. We follow as such ‘the guide for ethical editing’ as made available by the Committee of Publication Ethics. OASE takes it as its duty to guarantee ethical behaviour in all issues. The academic editor and academic committee play a key role preserving the quality.

        The peer-reviewed articles published in OASE support and embody a scientific method. Their publication reflects the quality of the work of their authors and their supporting institutions, most often faculties of architecture of leading universities. When publishing their articles in the peer-reviewed journal, OASE contributes to the essential development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge in the field of architecture. Over the thirty years of its existence, the journal has played an instrumental role in promoting and improving academic publishing in the architectural field, inviting young scholars to write and publish articles while training them in ethical behaviour.

        Facing the increasing practices of plagiarism, OASE believes that monitoring publishing ethics is a major aspect of our editorial process. The editorial board and the academic editor are in their day-to-day practice committed to maintaining the high quality of the journal and critically observe all contributions from this perspective.

        In order to enhance its academic approach towards publishing, OASE has elaborated significant tools: the extensive author’s guidelines, the official templates of invitation and rejection, the templates for calls for papers and for peer-reviewing. We share these tools with colleague editors in order to improve ethical publishing and responsible editorial behaviour in the international field of architectural publishing.
