About e-France

An on-line Journal of French Studies

General Editors: Joël Félix, Julia Waters

Based within the French Studies strand of the Modern Languages and European Studies Department (originally the French Studies Department) of the University of Reading, and with an international Advisory Board, the journal aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of the new and original research in all areas of French Studies, including literature, cultural studies, history, politics, visual and performing arts.

Exploiting the many benefits of a web-based format, whilst maintaining the academic rigour of more traditional journals, e-France aims to:

  • Provide a flexible and easily accessible space for the publication of original, up-to-the-minute research in all areas of French Studies.
  • Process submitted articles swiftly and to publish successful articles on the e-France website within six months at the most.
  • Offer more generous space than is normally possible in more traditional, 'paper' journals. We thus welcome articles of up to 12,000 words.
  • Provide a site for the dissemination of material in and on alternative, on-print forms, such as film, video, visual arts, music or multi-media. Contributors should ensure that they have obtained written permission to reproduce material free of charge.
  • Offer the choice of English or French as the language of contributions.
  • Attract contributions from researchers across the broad field of French Studies, from established academics to postgraduate students seeking to publish their work for the first time.

We welcome proposals for guest-edited themed issues of e-France. We do not publish book reviews.

Contributors are asked to follow the MHRA style guide, with particular attention to quotations, footnotes and references. The guide can be downloaded on-line at http://www.mhra.org.uk
