About the journal

Editorial policies

The Contextes et Didactiques journal focuses on scientific works that reflect the role played by the diversity, the coexistence and the confrontation of contexts of different natures (historical, geographical, ecological, sociolinguistic and cultural ...) during the interactions in learning, education and training situations. This work can be of empirical research, reports of innovative practices, analyses of teaching resources, literature reviews and theoretical reflections.

The journal draws a particular attention to works related on questions of didactic contextualization in post-colonial situations, in the French overseas territories. However, it is generally orientated towards any specific situation highlighting the existing gaps between institutional requirements, contexts and the actors’ conceptions, or "context effects" and contribute to their identification and their consideration in teaching, learning and training processes. Thus, the journal is open to any contribution dealing with didactic issues engaged with different contextual elements.

Proposals for contributions should be sent to the secretariat of the journal (contextes.didactiques[at], as well as to the editor (s) -in-chief for each thematic issue within the deadlines (see: Call for contributions). Calls for contributions are launched twice a year, in June and in December. The Contextes et Didactiques journal also publishes non-thematic texts in a “Varia” section. The journal has an editorial board and a scientific committee, composed of experts to ensure the quality of the articles published. The submitted contributions are subjected to a double-blind review by the scientific committee. The latter is responsible for reading the submitted manuscripts, for assessing them and for proposing any necessary changes for publication. The journal is not responsible for the submitted manuscripts. Sending documents to the journal implies the author’s agreement for their publication. Authors hold full responsibility for the texts and images published in the journal.
