Aims and scope

Dix-Neuf, the journal of the Society of Dix-Neuviémistes, is a forum for cutting-edge research in nineteenth-century French and francophone studies in all relevant disciplines. It is interdisciplinary in focus and seeks to promote wide-ranging critical and theoretical debate. The journal brings together a team of internationally recognized scholars on its editorial and advisory boards.

The journal is online-only and publishes 4 issues in each calendar year volume (February, May, August, and November).

Nineteenth-century French studies opens out onto multiple fields of enquiry and areas of knowledge. Since methods of working and of sharing ideas have undergone radical transformations over the last decade, this publication looks forward in terms of its mode of delivery, publishing in electronic form only. Electronic publication enables greater flexibility of delivery, access and presentation.

Dix-Neuf capitalises on the possibilities of the new medium, with all the advantages that it offers, while maintaining the traditional hallmarks of good scholarship – thorough refereeing, meticulous editing, rigorously enforced standards of presentation and referencing. Articles will be delivered as PDF (portable document format) files in order to offer the best possible means of blending the ‘traditional’ and the ‘modern’. On the one hand, image or other files can be linked in and accessed with ease, relevant articles can be downloaded or stored for local use, and the entire run of the journal’s contents can be viewed from remote locations. On the other hand, text is presented in camera-ready form. Its pagination and formatting remains invariable, and articles or sections of articles can be referenced in exactly the same manner as printed material. We are confident that the refereeing and editorial process is exacting, painstaking, thorough, and consistent with the very highest academic standards.

Authors can choose to publish gold open access in this journal.
