Each issue of the journal includes a dossier composed of an introductory text and 4 to 5 original contributions that have never been published previously nor submitted simultaneously to another journal.
Submission of a dossier
Each dossier project must be approved in advance by our editorial board. A detailed pitch must be sent to the journal’s desk editorial (geraldine.doite[@]ens-paris-saclay.fr) accompanied by a project summary.
This proposal is shared with the members of the editorial board for their agreement in principle.
If accepted, the coordinator(s) of the dossier must send the articles to the editorial office according to the schedule defined.
Contributions will be then evaluated anonymously by two referees (including at least one member of the editorial board).
Consult our evaluation and copyright policies:
If the dossier is accepted, the two referees will monitor the dossier in conjunction with the editors.
Once articles are definitively accepted for publication, the authors, having taken the evaluators’ observations into consideration, will send, via email, their final manuscript to the editorial office.
Average evaluation period: 3 to 4 months
Average time from manuscript acceptance to publication: 6 to 12 months.

- an introductory text
