Access for partners and subscribers


The resources that RETE has to facilitate scientific work are located in a specialised library that offers online access to a collection of digital publications organised into two major groups.

The first comprises documents produced by the Association itself, published by the Association in the PORTUS magazine, the PORTUSplus supplement or special publications.

The second set of documents consists of a selection of publications produced and published by other organisations, to which access is provided through links.




A biannual magazine, PORTUS is RETE’s leading publication in the field of scientific knowledge of port cities and an indispensable tool for the study and dissemination of work and experiences in the field of port-city relations and urban port regeneration initiatives. PORTUS closely examines the evolution, transformations and trends emerging in the most dynamic port cities in the world to offer a rigorous and plural interdisciplinary approach to the phenomena and processes that occur in them.
