Call for contributions for L’Année du Maghreb New section: “Issues and debates"

The historical section "chroniques annuelles" of the L'Année du Maghreb journal has become the "issues and debates” section. Within this framework, a call for contributions will be published each year.

The proposed themes, which are merely indicative, address current events and recent developments in the Maghreb countries. Contributors may also propose articles on other themes insofar as they deal with issues related to the socio-economic, political and cultural dynamics of the region.

The "issues and debates" section hosts two types of articles:

Focuses

These concise and informed scientific articles deal with a topical question (political, social, economic, and cultural) emerging from recent events unfolding in one or more of the Maghreb countries (Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Libya, Tunisia) or across the Maghreb, considered as a geographical entity.

Focuses can also feature preliminary results from fieldwork conducted either by students, early careers, or senior researchers.

Shorter than usual articles, focuses (approximately 3,000 words) are submitted to the editorial board’s review.

Time between submission and publication: 10 months.

Traditional articles

These 7,000-word scientific articles provide an in-depth analysis of recent events and phenomena relating to political, social, economic, and cultural developments occurred in the various Maghreb countries (Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania, Libya, Tunisia) or across the Maghreb as a whole.

Articles are initially pre-screened by the editorial board. If accepted, they undergo a double-blind peer review.

Time between submission and publication: 10 months.
