Quaestio facti is an international journal whose aim is to host and disseminate an analysis of the problems posed by evidential reasoning when it is used to adjudicate a legal dispute, not only within the context of a judicial process, but also within the wide range of administrative proceedings where the relevant law must be applied.
Quaestio facti started with an annual publication frequency, publishing the complete volume with the final layout in January of each year.
From 2023 onwards, it has been considered appropriate to increase the frequency of publication to twice a year. Thus, two issues per year will be published, the first one in January and the second one in June.
The first issue, published in January, includes five or six articles of the first section and the conjecture of the second one. Also, it includes the "Iuris prudentia" and the "Science for Legal Proceedings" sections. In the second issue, published in June, are included five or six general articles and the four or five refutations to the first issue's conjecture.
However, all the texts that are favourably received, after the pertinent corrections and a provisional layout, will be published instantaneously on a provisional basis.
