The Journal was founded in 2007, within the initiatives taken by the University Centre for Libraries of the University of Naples Federico II “Roberto Pettorino” as an opportunity for dialogue and discussion with the national and international scientific community.

From the second half of 2011, TeMA has changed some of its editorial features: the publishing frequency, the organization of the editorial board, the extension of the panel of referees and a new editorial look; establishing itself as an international journal.

From 2007 to 2014, 30 issues has been published that collect more than 500 contributions of experts and scholars from 51countries on foremost topics in the panorama of international scientific research.

Today TeMA is the number one Italian Journal in the discipline for the number of accesses and the number of quotations.
