Technological and societal changes have often led researchers to study the relationship between communication, technology and development. For a long time, people have been reflecting about the radio, television and mobile telephony. Now, studies are shifting towards artificial intelligence, the internet of things and big data. These studies often explore these issues in relation to the access, appropriation, governance and norms as well as their impacts on the culture, the social cohesion, the economic activities, democracy, and career change.


The Unesco chair at University Bordeaux Montaigne for Emerging Practices in Technology and Communication for Development launched the scientific journal entitled “Communication, technologies et développement”. It is an international interdisciplinary online journal of scientific research. This journal deals with issues related to circulation of ideas, knowledge sharing and the expression of individual and collective identities. It intends to be a platform for scholarly dialogue where researchers from francophone speaking area and speakers from other linguistic areas can meet. Emphasis is laid on emerging zones; here, emergence goes beyond the economic and political domains. Those territories are mostly located in Latin America, in Asia, in Africa as well as in Europe and are characterized by the fact that they have not been highlighted enough. Although French is the prevailing language, the journal being consistent with the idea of diversity is accepting original papers in German, English, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, etc. Special attention is paid to socioprofessionnal changes, technological innovations in relation to economic and social development.


The journal “Communication, technologies et développement” intends to promote the researches carried out in countries that do not benefit from an adequate scientific visibility, mostly countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America including issues investigated in developed countries. It is a forum of diverse minds, a platform for thinking about the ongoing changes (technological, social, cultural). To meet the goals of scientific excellence, the editorial committee is particularly cautious about plagiarism, redundant publications and there is a commitment to be uncompromising on the editorial and scientific qualities of the papers.
