An annual, bilingual and free digital journal, antiAtlas Journal opens an editorial space dedicated to a radically transdisciplinary approach to contemporary boundaries.

The anti-Atlas of borders was launched in 2011 at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (Aix-Marseille University) and IREMAM (CNRS / Aix Marseille University). In 2013, it was co-produced by the Ecole Supérieure d'Art (Aix-en-Provence), the PACTE laboratory (University of Grenoble Alpes-CNRS) partner of the European project EUBORDERSCAPES, Isabelle Arvers and The Company.

In 2014, it benefited from the support of the LabexMed project run by the Mediterranean House of Human Sciences of Aix-en-Provence and associated with the University of Sapienza (Rome) and the Technical University from Chemnitz (Germany) for the colloquium-exhibition The Art of Bordering at MAXXI, Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome (October 2014).

In 2010, with the publication of its 60th volume, the Revue française de science politique inaugurated a new format designed to enable it to continue to hold its privileged position in the landscape of social and political science journals.
Of course, the journal intends to continue to "give pride of place to research work", by publishing the results of such work either in thematic or varia issues, but it also wishes to reinforce its bibliographical mission, both by setting up a team within its Editorial Board to intensify our bibliographical review policy, and by regularly publishing "Chroniques bibliographiques", providing as comprehensive a review as possible of a particular sector of political science.

The Territoires du politique series is a scientific series in the humanities and social sciences. Its aim is to support the publication of academic works, both individual and collective, in French and English. Open to the editorial projects of French and foreign teachers, researchers and doctoral students, it aims to contribute to the circulation of international and comparative research questions and results.

The books are part of contemporary debates in the sociology of public action, the study of political behavior and representations, and the sciences of government and territory. They present the results of research or specialized seminars and workshops. For collective works, co-direction by two authors from different countries is desirable.

L'Espace Politique is an open-access electronic journal devoted to political geography and geopolitics.

A tool for disseminating French and Francophone research, L'Espace Politique also publishes in English. A tool for disseminating French and Francophone research, L'Espace Politique also publishes in English, and is free of charge, contributing to the influence of Francophone researchers and the consolidation of these disciplines in the academic field.


The journal publishes articles from the social sciences, focusing on the study of knowledge as discourse, practice or technical device; on the conditions of its production, use, transmission and, more broadly, its mobilization by human collectives. The term "anthropology" is taken here not in its specific sense, but in the general sense of multidisciplinary investigation into practices and behaviors, representations and ideologies, professions, organizations and institutions, techniques and productions in their historical singularities.

Since 1987, the journal Quaderni has been exploring the field of communication and its essential relationship with technology and power. Communication is everywhere: in the human and natural sciences, in newspapers, in politics, in business. A new religion. As it expands its empire, communication has had to take many ideological and epistemological detours. It has only emerged as a social value in response to a fragmented society, fragmented politics and fragmented science. But does this mean we should reject communication as a whole, as an ideology? By no means. It's a question of detecting, discriminating and distinguishing between its uses.
