Submitting an article

Articles may be proposed to the journal (, so long as they are within the scope of interest of the journal.

The submitted work must be unpublished and must not have been simultaneously submitted to another journal. It needs to possess a scientific and innovative character within the field of theological research whilst maintaining a pastoral interest.

Submissions should not exceed 45,000 characters including spaces and footnotes. An abstract of 5 or 6 lines should be joined to it. A note should accompany the submission where the author is introduced, including details of his or her academic or ecclesial background and, possibly, publications.

The review accepts normally articles written in French. Exceptionally an article may be submitted in English. If the text is accepted, the secretariat of the review would then provide for its translation into French.

As soon as the article has arrived, the author will receive an acknowledgement of receipt. All articles are first submitted to the journal’s Reading Committee. The Director will communicate acceptance or rejection within three months of receipt. He is not obliged to provide reasons for a refusal. Texts not accepted are not returned.

In the event of acceptance for publication the Director is entitled to request changes or stylistic revisions of the article.
