Instructions for Authors and Publication Ethics

The journal Interventions économiques / Papers in Political Economy is a refereed journal interested in theoretical debates as well as in research results or debates in political economy or socio-economics, as well as analysis of the evolution of society and economies. The editorial board is presented on the website.

The journal publishes articles on all themes, but has particular interest in political economy, socio-economics, work, employment, work organization, working time, local and international development, globalization and international political economy, as well as issues on important authors in these fields. (See issues on Veblen, Polanyi, Commons, etc.) It is available free of charge online, at this address:

Each issue is composed of an introduction to the thematic issue, when this is the case, as well as an average of 6 articles. The journal also publishes book reviews, essays and interviews.Articles are subject to peer review by at least two reviewers, and often three, especially in case of disagreement. The editors ensure that reviewers have no conflict of interest and reviews are treated confidentially. The journal conserves copyright of articles and authors wishing to integrate their article in an online site or a book need to contact the journal. As concerns access to journal, there are no subscriptions and journal is available free of charge online.

Publishers and editors take steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred. When the journal is made aware of any allegation of research misconduct, such as an article having been largely published elsewhere for example, the journal editors immediately deal with the issue. The journal can eventually retract or ask for correction of articles when needed. Usually, the problem will be discovered ahead of publication, and the article will not be published or possibly not even reviewed, and simply rejected in such a case. Publishers and editors are always willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed.

Articles should be original and not have been published elsewhere, nor published in another language. If authors want to put online the PDF version of the article published in PPE/IE, the journal would appreciate that they inform us. Also, if there is a possibility of translation in another language, or reproduction in a book, please contact the editors the journal allows translations, provided the primary source (IE /EPP) is indicated.

Presentation of Articles

Articles should not exceed 25 pages (including tables, graphs and bibliography) and half-spaced (or 50 000 characters) and must be accompanied by a translated title, a short summary of a dozen lines in English and French, and five key words in English and French as well.

Submitted papers will present original research results and qualities such as readability and relevance to the general theme of the issue, or the journal’s general subjects of interest. Published articles remain the property of the journal. The author will provide the following information: name, address, phone number, email address and the title and institutional affiliation.
