Revista Europea de Investigación en Arquitectura



The Universidad Europea de Madrid assumes the mission of encouraging research in all its areas and modalities. REIA is part of this vocation applied to the field of architectural research.

REIA is intended to broaden the channel for the dissemination of research that expands knowledge in the field of architecture, understood as a transversal field of knowledge, which deals with managing the physical and cultural complexity of the human environment. In this way, we aim to provide an outlet for work that lies on the borderline between disciplines.

REIA is open to researchers, theoreticians, PhD students, historians, critics, to all architects and non-architects, to all those who wish to make original and rigorous contributions to the knowledge of this ever-expanding territory that we call architecture.

REIA has a Scientific Committee made up of leading researchers and theoreticians, it is governed by an Editorial Board and the executive tasks are carried out by an editorial team.

REIA aims to guarantee the quality of the works published by means of a system of blind peer review of the originals received, which is carried out by members of the Scientific Committee.

REIA has no editorial line, admits articles with a free theme, and the publication of these is governed exclusively by the quality that is validated by blind peer review.

REIA is published every six months and is included in AVERY INDEX, LATINDEX and DIALNET.

Publish in REIA

Submission and receipt

- Articles for publication should be sent to the following email address: reia@universidadeuropea.es

- Two files in Word format must be attached:

  • A previous page containing the title / name / affiliation / e-mail and contact telephone number of the author/s, which will be marked in order of authorship.

To be named: Title or beginning of title (up to 4 words)_Last name author_REIA_Date of submission.

  • The article with mounted images, without the previous page. So that on the first page the title appears without the author heading the article. Otherwise, the article must conform to the publication standards and criteria set by REIA.

It should be named: Title or beginning of title (up to 4 words)_Article_REIA_Date of submission.

- Each submission will be acknowledged and a receipt number will be given on a first-come, first-served basis in the journal's electronic mailbox.

- The journal will not correspond with authors beyond the necessary communications in the process.

- Once an article has been evaluated, the editors will immediately forward the report to the author(s).

- If the article is publishable with changes, a deadline will be set for receipt of the modified article. If the submission of the modification exceeds this date, the journal understands that there is a waiver of publication and will exclude the article from the publication process for the current issue.

- Each article in need of improvement will only be subject to an alternative submission.

- The result of the layout of each of the selected articles will be submitted to the author(s) for approval, after any errors have been detected. The formal result of the layout is not the object of this final supervision.

Publication criteria

- Texts must be original and must not have been previously published.

- Only one article per author will be published. If several articles signed by the same author are submitted for publication in one issue of the journal, one of them will be published in subsequent issues, provided that in both cases the review is positive.

- They will be written in Spanish or English and will be accompanied by an abstract in English and Spanish of no more than 200 words. The abstract should be followed by key words (up to six) representative of the content of the article in English and Spanish.

- The articles to be published must have positively passed a blind peer review chosen from among the members of the Scientific Committee. In order to pass the review process, the paper must have been submitted within the established deadline and must meet the length and format requirements.

- The positive or negative judgement of each reviewer must be accompanied by a justification. This report will state whether the article is in one of the following situations:

  • Publishable
  • Publishable with changes
  • Not publishable

In the second scenario, possible improvements that the author should introduce in a second option will be included.

- The appointed reviewer has a maximum of 20 calendar days from the date of submission.

- The evaluation reports must be of sufficient length to ensure that both the general judgement and the particular observations on the article in question are clearly and precisely understood.

- Evaluation reports must not bear any signature or mark that could identify the evaluator.

- If the requested changes to an article are substantial, the article may be sent back to the reviewer.

- Authors will provide images in digital format with sufficient quality (minimum 300 dpi) to accompany the text of the layout of the article, and will also provide the origin of these images.

- The final composition of text and images will be the exclusive responsibility of the journal's editors, who will adjust the final form to the journal's style criteria.

- Under no circumstances will the magazine modify the text submitted and approved.

- Authorship will be scrupulously respected, and the material submitted may only be used for publication in the magazine. Any use other than this must have the express authorisation of the author.

- Authors may include a computer address to be published with the article in case they wish to communicate with readers. This will be marked with an asterisk on the previous page.

- What is expressed in the articles is the sole responsibility of the authors; the journal's management does not share them by the simple fact of their publication.

Manual of style

- Maximum length: 5000 words / Minimum length 2000 words. In both cases, bibliography and notes are not included in the calculation.

- Format: Word / Calibri 12. Spacing: 1.5.

- Author's details: Name and Surname / E-mail address / University or entity to which the author belongs. Only to be included on the previous page.

- Title and Abstract: In Spanish and English. Maximum 200 words.

- Images (up to a total of 10): Scanned in jpg with sufficient quality, minimum 300 dpi.

- In the text to be published, the image linked to the passage in question will be referenced with: (fig. X).

- The captions of the images must include in this order: fig. X, author, title (when it is an artistic/architectural work) or place (when it is a landscape photo) or name (when it is a portrait), author of the photograph.

- In a separate list, with the title Index of images and after the Bibliography, all the graphic material included in the article will be referenced in the order of appearance (fig. X), the text of the caption and the source of the image.

- Citation system: ISO 690.

- The originals should be sent to the following address: reia@universidadeuropea.es

Internal operation

- The call for papers will be open for a sufficient period of time (about two months for each issue).

- Once the call for papers is closed, each article received that meets the formal requirements will be sent to the designated reviewer. The appointment of reviewers will be made by the Editorial Committee on the basis of the subject matter and will be secret.

- Double anonymity is guaranteed: both of the authors for the reviewers and of the reviewers for the authors.

- The reviewers will have a fixed period of 20 calendar days by the editors to make their assessment and report from the date of submission of the articles.

- The author will have 5 calendar days from the communication of the reviewers' report to send the improved article, if the report issued goes in this direction.

- The evaluation reports will have a clear and precise justification.

- All communication, both with authors and reviewers, will be carried out through a single interlocutor of the editorial team, maintaining anonymity for both the author and the reviewer in each case.

- Communications will be made through the e-mail account set up for this purpose: reia@universidadeuropea.es

- The number of articles by authors linked to the Universidad Europea will never exceed 30% of those published in each issue.

Good practice guide

The journal REIA, European Journal of Architectural Research, is governed by a Code of Good Practice which is set out in the following Guidelines:

  1. Scientific Committee/Editorial Board/Editorial Team.

- REIA has a Scientific Committee made up of renowned architectural researchers, whose names and affiliations are listed on the journal's website. Blind peer review is carried out by members of the Scientific Committee. The Scientific Committee guarantees the fulfilment of the journal's objectives and the scientific quality of the articles published (CREDITS).

- REIA is governed logistically by an Editorial Board, which is responsible for the planning and management of the journal. The composition of the Editorial Board is listed on the website (CREDITS).

- REIA operates with an Editorial Team that deals with the processes of receiving, reviewing and publishing the articles that apply for publication. The composition of the Editorial Team is listed on the website (CREDITS).

  1. Responsibility of the authors

- The author is responsible for the content of his/her articles. He/she is responsible for the originality and veracity of the contents of his/her articles.

- The author undertakes not to publish the same article or part of its content in other journals if it has been validated for publication in REIA.

- The author must indicate the sources of the information he/she uses in his/her article. All articles will have a bibliography of the sources of the images included in the article.

- When there are several authors of the same article, their names will appear in the order of importance of their participation in the preparation of the article.

  1. Ethics in the peer review process

-All articles received in open call for papers are required to undergo blind peer review.

- The review of articles is carried out with the scientific objectivity required in the process.

- Reviewers must notify when they detect, despite the anonymity of the process, that there may be a conflict of interest in the review of an article.

- The review process is carried out by the Editorial Team, guaranteeing total confidentiality.

- REIA remains open at all times to rectification, correction and clarification of aspects that may be questioned.

- REIA undertakes to maintain the confidentiality of the content and authorship of the articles received until their publication.

- The editorial team will not modify the text of the articles published. Only grammatical errors will be corrected.

- The choice of reviewers will be made on the basis of their suitability, both in terms of their research profile and their speciality.

- Double anonymity will be maintained at all times: of the reviewers for the authors, and of the authors for the reviewers.

- Both the editorial team and the corresponding reviewers will highlight any possible plagiarism, inaccuracies or redundant publications, which, if duly justified, will lead to the exclusion of the article involved.

  1. Ethics in the publication process.

- Publication in REIA does not entail any cost on the part of the authors to proceed with its evaluation and publication.

- All the formal requirements and steps of the process are clearly reflected in the web page (PUBLISH IN REIA).

- The Editorial Team analyses the papers received, prior to the review, to check that each one of them meets the requirements of form, originality and anonymity. When it is detected that any of these requirements are not met, the article is excluded from the review process and the author is informed that it cannot be published and the reasons for this.

- The editorial team will not modify the text of published articles. Only grammatical errors will be corrected.

- The number of articles authored by a member of the Universidad Europea de Madrid may not exceed 25% of the total number of articles in the issue in question.

- Members of the Editorial Team cannot be authors of articles published in REIA.

5. Ethics of reviewers.

- All reviews are carried out in a model and must contain a judgement on the appropriateness of the publication of the article awarded and a reasoned report with arguments justifying the judgement on the appropriateness of the publication. This must be done within the deadline set by the Editorial Team.

- The reviewer undertakes to produce his/her report within the deadline set by the journal's Editorial Team. If he/she foresees that he/she will not be able to complete the assignment within this deadline, he/she must reject it at the time of submission in order to avoid delays that may be detrimental to the author of the assignment.

- The reviewer undertakes to maintain complete confidentiality about the authorship and content of the articles commissioned and not to use it for his/her own research.

- The reviewer must disclose any conflict of interest and refuse, for this reason, to review the article awarded.

6. Access to the publication and copyright.

- Access to the content of each issue of the journal is free through the website.

- REIA journal uses the Creative Commons system by which the author allows the use of the article in the journal itself and in any repository linked to it for an unlimited period of time, without generating any financial compensation.

7. Periodicity and archiving.

- REIA is a biannual publication, as it appears on the website (PRESENTATION). The change of this periodicity will be announced and reflected in the web page.

- All documents referring to articles and reviews are archived in a backup copy with restricted access to the Editorial Team.
