Journal Description :ESTUDO PRÉVIO (Preliminary Study), it's the semiannual journal of the Centre for Architecture, City and Territory Studies (Centro de Estudos de Arquitectura, Cidade e Território) of Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa (CEACT/UAL). With this publication we want to project a new place where it is possible to share knowledge with a simple conversation, with the accuracy of a technical article, with a book launching or with an open debate in the digital community. The proposal to create another architecture magazine was, since the beginning, a challenge to choose a slightly different path and so we created an editorial line centred on the real conditions that determine an architectural production before any sketch or model or even before we become architects. The permanent Crisis, the constant Natural Disasters, the development of the City Outskirts will certainly be topics that we would like to deepen in this publication, but also about other topics that affect and influence the Portuguese architecture, for instance the number of Portuguese architects now reaching 20.000, the number of architects at the verge of Unemployment, and on the other hand the growing diversity of New Professions where architects can make a contribution. We want this publication to make a preliminary study “(ESTUDOPRÉVIO”) on teaching and practical aspects in architecture and extend the debate on the conditions and constraints of our profession, in order to continue to evolve by sharing experiences, opinions and research works. Only then can we build a solid base, open to find solutions to new problems and challenges that the world faces nowadays. The core of this publication focuses on Interviews and on the open system of Submission of Articles. The Interviews will focus on generating conversations that float among the educational practices, research and professionals of each interviewee, can be read in Portuguese and English, and also can be heard on the web site; the Articles will be done in a call-for-papers system, selected by the editorial board. In the same project we still have space to promote reading, book launches, and also the classics – books that have become important references for Architecture. This journal has a very high quality content, containing some of the most up-to-date and highest quality interdisciplinary papers produced in Portugal but also including contributions from all over the world, being written or translated in English. Thus, we call for papers that evidence contemporary research themes in architecture or in architecture-related fields. We aim that the next issue provides an overview of the current research topics, from the more classical to the more innovative, as well as of the different underlying methodologies and approaches, especially if they derive from the combination of complementary fields of knowledge. The review is made based in paper's-theme guest reviewers, and in Blind Peer Review system.
