General guidelines

HOW TO SUBMIT A SPECIAL ISSUE

The editorial board encourages any proposal for a special thematic issue in the field of European Studies.

Any special issue proposal should include a general presentation of the question being dealt with in the issue (a few pages) and a brief abstract with maximum five to seven articles besides the introduction (authors, title and summary of the articles’ proposal).

Proposals for special issues including articles both in French and in English are appreciated.

Proposals are reviewed by the editorial board, which decides whether to accept the issue as is, to ask for a revise and resubmit (accompanied by a number of comments), or to refuse the proposal. In the case of a revise and resubmit, the second version of the proposal is again reviewed by the editorial board, which can either accept or reject it.

When a special issue is accepted, one or two member(s) of the editorial board provides the scientific monitoring in cooperation with the special issue guest editor(s). S/He is associated at each stage of the evaluation process (first and second versions); verifies the consistency between the different articles of the special issue, individually assesses each article, and may, at any time, issue a negative opinion on the publication of an article. An anonymous reviewer, external to the editorial board, also reviews each special issue’s article.

Manuscripts should be sent Oriane Calligaro (Oriane.Calligaro(at)univ-catholille.fr) and Clément Fontan (clement.fontan(at)uclouvain.be), co-editors-in-chief of the journal.

HOW TO SUBMIT A VARIA ARTICLE

The editorial board encourages any proposal of articles related to European studies, covering the fields of the journal (public policy analysis, political sociology, international relations, political theory, political anthropology,… ).

Manuscripts should be sent to Laurie Beaudonnet <laurie.beaudonnet(at)umontreal.ca>and Cyril Benoit <cyril.benoit1(at)sciencespo.fr>

HOW TO SUBMIT AN ARTICLE FOR THE “RESEARCH IN PROGRESS” SECTION

The aim of Politique européenne is to promote European studies and to provide a forum for research on European integration. The editorial board encourages proposals for articles that aim to present research in progress or about to begin. This may be individual research (PhD project, post-doctoral research, etc.) or collective research. Result of a Master’s thesis, when it is based on an original research work, may also be considered for publication.

These proposals, in French or English, should be between 15,000 and 25,000 characters, spaces not included.

They will be evaluated internally and supported by the editorial committee and published in the “Research in progress” section.

HOW TO SUBMIT A BOOK REVIEW OR A REVIEW ARTICLE

Articles should focus on outlining the objectives, theoretical assumptions or hypotheses, fieldwork, and methods of the proposed research. They may also present a new database, discuss the challenges of a new method, or include initial results, but their primary objective remains to give visibility to work in progress.

Any proposal for a research project should be addressed to Hugo Canihac (hugo.canihac(at)usaintlouis.be) and Virginie van Ingelgom (virginie.vaningelgom(at)uclouvain.be), who are responsible for the section.

Politique européenne publishes book reviews and review articles on all kind of works related to European integration.

The journal can provide in most cases, on request, a copy of the reviewed book.

The editorial board will consider book reviews of maximum 7000 signs, spaces not included.

The references will be included in the footnotes, in the format: Name, Last Name, Title, Publisher City, page numbers, date of publication or First Name, Last Name, “title”, journal title , volume (number), p. x-x.

Proposals should be sent to Céline Belot (celine.belot(at)sciencespo-grenoble.fr) and Stéphanie Novak (stephanie.novak(at)unive.it), section editors.

The editorial board also encourages the submission of review articles on a common theme, a common theoretical or methodological question. These review articles will be subject to the same review process as varia articles.
