In the last decade, LIStLab has published more than 150 titles and printed over 60,000 copies, offering its authors high quality standards in terms of book conception and construction. That said, LIStLab is always pleased to receive new publishing proposals. Our longstanding book series BABEL and BABEL International are dedicated to theory and academic research in the context of Urban Design and Planning, Landscape Design, Architecture and Industrial Design, but have also been open to alternative research areas and approaches.

Today, in order to address the new issues of contemporary culture and living, Listlab intends to develop three new thematic series:

  • M120 – Meridian 120, which portrays the countries and territories located around the stretch of water separating Eurasia and the Pacific Ocean. The aim is to highlight new ideas, new points of view and, ultimately, new cartographies to look at today’s world, a time when the Far East is no longer a cultural periphery;
  • Enter the Anthropocene, which addresses the Anthropocene, i.e. the impact of mankind on the Earth’s geology and ecosystem, including, but not limited to, climate change. The series will seek to shed light on global urbanisation and its impact on our planet’s landscapes;
  • The Digital Affairs, which aims to build an atlas of the potential of new technologies, as well as the changes they are bringing to the places where we live.

Before being accepted by ListLab and edited for publication, titles falling within these new thematic series shall be submitted to at least two members of the Reviewers Board for the academic peer review process. 

In case of validation by the peer reviewers, Listlab will proceed with the editorial and graphic support in order to adapt the publications to the editorial line and the market. 

In case of non-validation, the proposal will be sent back to the author with a suggestion for modification, or the author will be notified of the publication’s unsuitability by ListLab. If the proposed titles do not fall within the above-mentioned series, the Editorial Director shall nonetheless evaluate them and suggest a revision or the direct acceptance by the Board of Reviewers.

Authors who wish to publish a book with ListLab can submit their publishing project by filling in and uploading the form you can find in page. We ask you to pay attention when completing the form, as it provides the necessary information for the Reviewers Board to carry out its work. If the form is incomplete, the publication cannot be taken in consideration.

A special initiative will be held until 31 May 2021. In fact, until this date it will be possible to submit your editorial proposal to compete for obtaining publishing support from ListLab. For more information, please read the Open Call for publishing projects within the context of the forthcoming books series M120 – Meridian 120, Enter Anthropocene, and The Digital Affairs by ListLab publisher’.
