Instructions for authors

Consignes aux auteurs

Please read these instructions carefully and take note that any text that does not respect them scrupulously will be refused without even being subjected to evaluation. The long abstract in English, the title and the keywords translated into English, the bibliography in accordance with the standards and the respect of the layout are without exception part of this requirement.

The Francophone journal on health and territories accepts 2 types of articles :

  • Long articles published as and when they are accepted. These can be feature articles or empirical articles. This format also applies to thematics folders. Without setting a firm limit, the journal encourages a maximum of 10,000 words.
  • Short texts published in the seminars and workshops section. This format is reserved for “working papers” and reports of seminars or workshops. They are subject to review by the editorial board alone and do not have the value of a peer-reviewed publication.

The thematic files are open without time limit. Each thematic call for contributions is based on an initial timetable with a deadline for submitting texts. But once the selected texts are put online, it is still possible to add new contributions as and when they are submitted.

All texts must be accompanied by a short summary in French (150 words) and a long summary in English (600 to 800 words + an illustration, map, figure or table in English as well). Don't forget to translate the title.

A minimum of 3 keywords are required for each article as well as their English translation.

Information concerning the authors must appear on a cover page, specifying the contact details of the author of correspondence. The evaluation process is based on the anonymous opinion of two reviewers. Authors are therefore requested to ensure that their texts are anonymized (by avoiding self-citations, for example, or by replacing their name with “author” in references). The editorial board will return to the authors any text that does not present these guarantees of anonymity..

Accepted text formats are .docx, .odt or .rtf, justified text. The font used is: Arial 11 points.

In addition to the general title (style = Main Title, bold, red color and lower case, 20 points), 3 levels of title are allowed without numbering:

  • Level 1: style = Heading 1 - lowercase bold, 18 points ;
  • Level 2: style = Heading 2 - lowercase bold, 16 points ;
  • Level 3: style = Heading 3 - lowercase italics, 14 points.

Notes must be at the end of the document and limited to the essential.

The bibliography format is the APA standard.

The tables are titled and numbered and provided in a separate file in .docx or .odt format. Be sure to anonymize any tables you authored. After acceptance of the article, you will be asked to provide the tables with a title, date of completion and author(s). Any text which does not provide these separate files will be refused.

Figures (images, diagrams, maps) are referred to in the text in parentheses (eg figure 1). Their location in the text is materialized by the title (figure n: title of the figure) and the document is attached to the sending in a separate file in .jpeg or .png format not numbered in the title (be sure to anonymize the illustrations you authored). The name of file must contain the number of the figure, like this: figure1.png or fig_1.png. After acceptance of the article, you will be asked to provide these illustrations with a title, date of production and author(s). In case of unsatisfactory resolution, authors may be asked to provide the original document in .eps, .ai or .svg formats. Any text that does not provide these separate files will be refused.

Each author is asked to provide a link to his bibliographic record (HAL, research gate, cv in the pages of his research unit or personal page) as well as, if they exist, their identifier IdHAL, ORCID, ISNI and/or IdREF.
