1. Private Archives: Questions of Protection and Access (Archives of private organizations; Company archives; Archives of digital and analogue media: the press, radio, TV; etc.)
2. General Data Protection Regulation
IIAS therefore invites you to submit a complete text (minimum 6, maximum 16 pages) in one of the three IIAS official languages (English, Italian, Slovenian) not later than April 20th 2018.
The text should contain the abstract (maximum 150 words) in English and in your national language and the summary (1000 words if the article is written in your national language, if in English than maximum 400 words) in English.
The Editorial Board will evaluate your proposal and, not later than May 20th, 2018, give a response of acceptance or not.
You are kindly requested to strictly comply with the attached Guidelines for Publishing in “Atlanti”, particularly for citations, both for bibliography and references (i.e. footnotes, quotes) since this will be very important in editing the publication.

With our best regards,

Assist. Prof. Dr. Peter Pavel Klasinc, Director IIAS
