Permanent Call for Varia

RESET is a scientific journal, which aims to disseminate research in which the Internet constitutes a useful and necessary object or field of investigation for the understanding of social phenomena. Each issue presents a thematic dossier (i.e. several articles gathered around a question that has been treated for a long time by the social sciences, but renewed with or on the Internet), while also a space to texts outside the dossier, through the varia section.

RESET thus encourages researchers to propose any contribution that fits into the perspective that gave birth to the journal, to appear as a varia in future issues. Far from singling out the Internet as an autonomous media or social space, the challenge will be to show that its practices and uses are at the heart of classic and transversal questions in the social sciences: new digital tools may well appear, but do they modify underlying social mechanisms? Do qualitative or quantitative methods need to be renewed in order to continue to study precisely certain phenomena that now take place online?

Submissions, in French or in English, must present the research question, the empirical methodology used and the theoretical framework mobilized in a precise manner. They must clearly show the scientific interest of the article in relation to the existing literature. This dual empirical and theoretical anchoring thus excludes purely reflective or speculative papers. Submissions should not have been the subject of any other publication and the size of the articles should be between 40,000 and 60,000 characters (including spaces, not including the bibliography). Authors are invited to take note of the journal's editorial guidance before submitting their article.

RESET also welcomes contributions aimed at re-reading or updating seminal authors, theories or investigations within the social sciences. Interested researchers are therefore invited to propose analyses of texts, works, or even research traditions, insofar as their importance has been recognized in our fields, as long as these works seem to deserve, in the face of the internet, new applications, or call for adjustments or revisions.

The editorial board will therefore receive and examine with the greatest interest any article that meets the criteria indicated. Authors may of course contact the journal beforehand, for example based on an abstract (3,000 characters maximum), in order to ensure their future fits the journal's editorial line. Texts can be sent throughout the year to the e-mail address; a confirmation will be sent to the authors in return.

The submission will then be evaluated in a double-blind process within two to three months. Authors whose submissions are accepted will then be invited to submit a final version of their article (with any revisions required by the reviewers) according to a schedule agreed with the editorial board: this evaluation procedure, described on the journal's website, will determine whether the article will be published or not.

As soon as the editorial board accepts a submission, it is published on the journal's website in an issue called “Early Publications”, then incorporated in the following issue.
