Roles of the editorial and advisory boards

The Editorial Board (or Review Committee) is the body responsible for the scientific quality of the journal, in collaboration with the Editor-in-Chief (who is a member).
The board has eight to twelve members who must be able to attend meetings in person at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, which is why they are mostly French. Members are academics and curators who are nationally or internationally recognised experts, and an artist who is a fellow of the Académie des beaux-arts and owner of a contemporary art gallery.

The board meets every three to ten weeks to evaluate the scholarly value of submitted articles and their contribution to the scientific community. Texts are circulated ahead of time and openly discussed by members during the meeting.

The board issues one of three possible assessments: accepted with minor revisions (to be approved by the editor), accepted with major revisions (requiring a new review by the committee), or rejected. The author is notified of the assessment by the editor unless one member has a particular expertise on the topic of the article.

For articles pertaining to specialised topics (e.g. playing cards or China), the committee may request external reviews from academics, curators and connoisseurs who are experts in the relevant domains.

The advisory board does not meet in person: it advises the journal on its general scholarly orientation, and acts as correspondant in the origin countries of its members (reporting publications of interest for publishing reviews, encouraging local authors to submit contributions, acting as representatives…)

Members of the advisory board are internationally distinguished specialists.
