Support for the journal

The journal has existed for 35 years already. First in a paper edition, then as an electronic version, this interdisciplinary journal for the social sciences could not have survived until the present day without the motivation of its contributors and the trust of its readership, but also without the support of institutional and financial sponsors.

 The combination of these three factors means that today, can position itself as one of the journals of reference for the field of the social sciences. Since its migration online in 2002, the journal has published more than 900 academic articles and collaborated with around 2000 authors from 80 national and international institutions from countries such as Germany, England, Belgium, France, Italy, and Spain, as well as the United States, Canada or Japan.

In May 2010, the journal took a decisive turn with its new online layout. The chosen graphic direction now allows for a better highlighting of published articles, as well as an increased valuation of the journal’s partners, on a page that is specifically dedicated to them. This signature look consequently simplifies the search for new sponsors and also allows for investigations into new forms of support from an enlarged target audience.
