Information for authors

Write for “Images du travail, Travail des Images”

Articles, posts or proposals for the notebook or magazine “Images du travail, Travail des Images” and more generally any correspondence, should be sent to imagesdutravail[at]

Next to the article itself, it is necessary to indicate the first and last names of the author(s), as well as their title, function and institution. Proposals for contributions and responses to calls for papers must not exceed 50,000 characters (including spaces) and must include a summary of around ten lines (in English and French) as well as few key words in both languages.

Articles must be anonymized. No name must appear in the document properties neither (to be checked in the word processor in File> Properties> Details> Author; the fields must be empty). The text must not contain any mention of the type “cf. my other work”, including in the footnotes.

The articles, made anonymous by the editorial staff, are distributed by the editorial board to two specialists in the subject responsible for evaluating them. The proofreaders can be members of the editorial board, the scientific council or the reading committee, and they will write an anonymous report which announces if the article is publishable or not and any modifications to make it publishable. In the case of contradictory reports, a third report is requested.
