Disciplines/thématiques : la revue, qui publie des articles en histoire et théorie de l’architecture, a d’abord considéré l’architecture savante (Zlatý řez signifie « nombre d’or »). Dans les années 1990, elle s’intéresse à l’impact des idées internationales dans les milieux architecturaux tchèques (considérant les grandes transformations politiques et sociétales de ces années). Dans les années 2000, l’attention s’est portée sur la théorie et la recherche — l’information sur l’architecture pouvant être obtenue sur le web.

Objectifs : diffusion d’articles en histoire et théorie.

Lectorat : architectes et étudiants, enseignants-chercheurs et professionnels dans les champs des sciences sociales et des humanités.

Système d’évaluation : lecture des articles par le comité de rédaction, puis par des lecteurs extérieurs.

Questionnaire filled up by Jana Tichá, Editor-in-Chief

The Journal Governance and Committees’ composition

What is the percentage of members holding a PhD on the editorial board?

20 %, but 60 % professors.

Is there a reading committee? Who participates in it?

First reading was done by the editorial board, reviews by external reviewers

Does the journal develop a special relationship with an academic institution? If so, what is it?

There has never been an official relationship to any academic institution. The editorial office of the journal was moved to Faculty of Architecture CVUT in 2011 for purely practical reason the chief editor and board members have been teaching there.

Are there debates within the editorial board? If so, how are they made visible in the journal?

There always had been debates within the board which were usually reflected in the editorial.

What are the economical, formal and intellectual relations to the publisher (resources and constraints)?

The journal was published between 1992 and 2017 by Zlatý řez Publishers, an independent non-profit association established under civil code of the Czech Republic (the usual way of existence of non-profit cultural journals and activities). In late 2010s, the project proved to be no longer economically viable even with partial support of grants from various institutions. We continued with publishing of books (arch. theory and history) but now we are closing the business altogether. Main reason is finance impossibility to survive as a small independent publisher.

Research and Journal

What milieu does the journal plug into? What audience is targeted?

Architects and students, academics and professionals in related fields or social sciences and humanities.

From the journal’s point of view what are the outcomes expected from the research in architecture? (urban planning and landscape architecture)?

Research should broaden the scope of understanding of ideas underlying architectural production past, present and future.

According to you is there a difference between research and innovation? If there is, what does it consist of? And what about research and expertise?

Yes, innovation is applied research directed to the future. Research may as well be related to history or theory, need not have direct practical outcome. Research is a condition of expertise.

How does research content fit into the journal’s plan?

In the past ten years, we were dedicating substantial part of the journal to publishing original research outcome.

During the last year, how many researchers contributed to the journal?

In 2017 (last year) it was 8.

Considering the past ten years, what transformations have occurred concerning the relationships between research and the profession? between research and public discussion?

Research has become an inseparable part of architectural profession in the academy and is being ever more acknowledged by professional bodies such as the Chamber of Architects or the City Planning Institute as well.

How do you select peer-review experts? How do you deal with peer reviewed assessments and disclose them to the authors? (Problems and anecdotes)

Experts were selected so that they are not in direct working connection with the author (diverse institutions). We never disclosed the identity of the reviewers.

What is the part played by the lay out management? (Text/image, typography, cover-front)?

Graphic design was always a very important part of our identity, the designers were always acknowledged as authors in their own right. Every issue had a specific identity.

Editor-in-Chief’s Satement

What kind of journal did you have in mind when the journal was launched or when you were appointed Editor-in-chief and has it evolved?

We started as a journal dedicated to high-quality architecture, in the 1990s main aim was information about leading ideas in architecture in the world as reflected in the Czech Republic (surely a specific aim due to the transformation years in politics and society). After 2000 we shifted or attention ever more to theory and research pure information was found rather on the internet.

What journals in the field of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture do you read regularly? Occasionally? What journal do you read outside the field?

The usual bunch I liked Any, Log, Grey Room, Hunch, LA+, Domus… not always regularly, now rather occasionally.
