Submissions to the Nexus Network Journal

The Nexus Network Journal, in collaboration with Springer, our publishing partner, is in the process of implementing the new Editorial Manager for our journal. EM will allow us to receive submissions, assess proposals and assign reviewers in an efficient and timely manner. The new system is expected to be online by Friday 25 April.

Thank you for your patience and we build an even better journal for your research.

Criteria for acceptance

The peer review system, with all its defects and advantages, is the system used to maintain the integrity and high quality that readers and authors of the Nexus Network Journal have come to expect. To help authors evaluate their own papers before they are submitted to the NNJ and sent for review, we have posted a set of characteristics that can contribute to a paper's acceptance, and a second list of characteristics that often lead to rejection.

Nexus: Leonardo's reciprocal structures on YouTube!

The Italian scientific news program "TGR Leonardo" aired a segment about a Nexus workshop dedicated to Leonardo's reciprocal structures.

 The "Leonardo: Architecture and Mathematics" took place in Vinci, Leonardo's birthplace, in the heart of Tuscany, in summer 2003 (the hottest summer on record in Italy). Participants included sculptor Rinus Roelofs (Netherlands), artist Mark Reynolds (USA), architects Joao Pedro Xavier (Portugal), Kim Williams (Italy), Vesna Petresin (Slovenia-UK) and her husband Laurent Paul Robert, Christopher Glass (USA), Biagio Di Carlo (Italy) and Sylvie Duvernoy (Italy), with others joining us for the construction project. The workshop was composed of a seminar, held in the Biblioteca Leonardiana in Vinci, during which participants assembled to discuss the use of geometry in the architecture of Leonardo as found in his sketchbooks, followed by the actual construction of four dome structures based upon Leonardo's system, which took place in Ponte a Egola, 14 km from Vinci. The seminar and the construction were filmed in order to produce a documentary.
