About the Journal

Carnets. Electronic Journal of French Studies

Carnets electronic journal of French Studies is an e-journal created, implemented and edited by the APEF (the Portuguese Association of French Studies). The purpose of Carnets is to divulge the research papers produced within the scope of the APEF. Carnets publishes articles by its members, as well as by other researchers who wish to collaborate with this Association, and disseminate their research in the field of French and Francophone Studies.

The choice of a free-access online publication aims at bringing together researchers on French and Francophone Studies, and encouraging debate and idea sharing.

Carnets publishes original works from different fields of French and Francophone Studies (Literature, Linguistics, Criticism, Culture, Didactics) and/or from interdisciplinary studies in related areas, such as Comparative Studies, Translation Studies, History, Philosophy, Arts and Science.

Carnets publishes two issues per year (a special issue in May, and a thematic issue in November). These are edited by one or more coordinators and may include both original research articles, and reviews of recently published books or even literary texts. All papers are subjected to a double blind peer-review.

Journal’s boards

The executive board comprises a director, three co-directors and three sub-directors. The president of APEF, or a member of the APEF executive board mandated by him/her, takes on the functions of director of the journal; the vice-presidents inherently take on the functions of co-directors of the journal; the secretaries and the treasurer inherently take on the functions of sub-directors of the journal.

The editorial board comprises APEF representative members and the coordinators of each issue of the journal.

The peer review board comprises renowned national and international researchers in the field of French and Francophone Studies and in the field of Comparative Studies.


Duties of the Executive Board

The executive board of Carnets is entrusted with the general supervision of all issues, from the different stages of their preparation, publication and online release, as well as with the coordination of the tasks carried out by the journal’s boards, the resolution of various problems and the decision making.

Duties of the journal’s peer review board

It is the duty of the members who belong to this board to pronounce themselves, in groups of two or more members, about the acceptance or rejection of papers anonymously sent to them by the journal’s executive board.

It is the duty of the members of the peer review board to make an assessment, indicating the acceptance of the article for publication, its necessary rewording or its rejection. The relevant criteria for this assessment are as follows: suitability to the subject and to the proposed field(s) of study, originality and relevance, recent bibliographical references and the way these are used, methodology approach, writing quality, and respect for the journal editorial policy.
