Contacts for thematic dossier articles and varia

Scientific articles concerning the thematic dossiers: the persons to whom you can send your proposals for articles are indicated in the calls for articles published on the journal's website and on Calenda.

Spontaneous scientific articles outside thematic dossiers (Varia) respecting the call for proposals calendar (March and June of each year): Olivier Vallade, Dominique Baud et Coralie Mounet.

Proposals for the columns: Localities, Books Reviews, Mountains in fiction and Transitions

Anyone interested can submit a text for publication in these columns, the aim of which is to be open, reactive and original.

The columns are intended to diversify the ways of communicating information on research on mountain areas.

Localities: the aim this column is to present short communications on a particular place, comprising a photo and a short text. The photos may be of any type, the only restriction being the quality of the reproduction. They must also be in the public domain or, if not, submitted with the author’s authorisation for reproduction. The photo must be accompanied by a text (of 2000 to 4000 characters) that comments on or analyses the photo in a style and tone that can be fairly free and less academic in nature.

Proposals should be submitted to the editorial office, which will then forward them to the person responsible for the column. Jean-Baptiste Bing :

Books Reviews: The Revue publishes reviews on texts concerning mountain areas of the world. Scientific texts are preferred but the editorial committee leaves the possibility open for reviewing more popular texts if they are deemed to be of sufficient interest.

Reviews may take the form of a short note (of 2000 to 3000 characters) introducing the text with an outline of its contents accompanied by a short commentary, or a longer and more detailed note (up to 5000 characters) involving a more in-depth reflection on the text. The author may have the right to reply.

Reviews should be sent to Olivier Vallade, ( who will submit them to the review committee.

Mountains in fiction: This column will offer short commentaries (3000 to 5000 characters) focusing on works of fiction or non-academic documentaries – texts, films, images, or audio or audiovisual documents for either adults or children – which in some way evoke mountains.
Mountains need not be the central figure of the composition being addressed, but they should be an element. They should remain at the center of the reflection here, however.  Reference can be made to academic works, but this is not required.  Finally, a reflection on several works, brought together under a particular optic, could also comprise an article. Send your ideas and proposals to
Dorothée Fournier (Dorothé and Léa Sallenave ( who will submit them to the review committee.

Transitions: In a context of crises (collapse of biodiversity, climate emergency, widening social inequalities, pandemics, etc.), mountain territories, whether developed or not, in the northern or southern hemisphere, are called upon to renew themselves and rethink their development model. Through the “Transitions” section, the JAR|RGA wishes to take part in these challenges, both environmental and societal, by discussing citizen, political or scientific initiatives emerging in mountain territories.

In connection with the themes of the issues, this section offers a space for dialogue between territorial actors and scientists on the ways in which populations, territories or researchers are involved and bring to life the various possible forms of transition. The short articles can be proposed by territorial actors and scientists. They can take different forms (testimony and discussion, interview, etc.)
