Editorial proposals

The dissemination of result as well as general promotion of texts contributing to the conceptual and theoretical clarification of our research are among the main BITrum objectives. Therefore, and additionally aiming at improving dissemination and impact of these editions, BITrum has developed an editorial proposal, including: 1) translations of prominent works into Spanish, bringing these themes of major scientific and social concern closer to the Spanish speaking public, 2) proposal of original texts developed within the project frame.
