U3-UrbanisticaTre (ISSN 1973-9702) is an online scientific journal (as recognised by ANVUR, the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research Systems) which focuses on the study, design and construction of cities and territories, providing a space to discuss ideas, researches and experiences on their collective production.

The journal’s editorial structure is as follows: Editorial board, Scientific board, Editorial committee, Editor-in-chief.

U3 is a place open to the contribution of young researchers and of those who, nationally and internationally, would like to express their ideas or present valid results.
We would like this journal to place itself in a position where it is not only in step with the emerging problems in the design and construction of a more just (and nicer) city, but also in touch with ideas and experiences regarding the perspectives of a collective construction of space that are not necessarily consolidated. It should be open to different points of view and disciplines, even outside the academic world, wherever there are people who directly or indirectly deal with the topic of cities and territories. Due to our different interests, U3 offers different topics within its leRubriche section, which host various kinds contributions as text, audio and video: in-depth accounts of ongoing or concluded researches (Focus), interviews (Dialoghi) notes, travel reports, exchange and research experiences abroad (Viaggi) reviews and re-readings of texts (Letture), reflections on cities starting from their visual representation (Immagini &Video) reports on conferences, seminars and exhibitions (Cronache), in-depth accounts on words and their meaning (Lessico), collection of studies or researches (NU3 – leNote di U3).

U3 relies on the potentialities of the web and seeks to experiment an innovative editorial organization, that highlights the relationship between the sporadic and immediate contributions within the Rubriche and the other section of the journal: QU3 – iQuaderni di U3 (ISSN 2531-7091). QU3 are quarterly, peer-reviewed thematic issues, edited by one or more supervisors, who submit their proposals to the editor-in-chief and the editorial board. ANVUR recognised QU3 as a high-quality scientific journal (rivista scientifica di classe A) in the architectural field (area 08).
