Our scientific journal: EMA


The journal Etudes Médiévales Anglaises (ÉMA, ISSN: 0240-8805) is published by the Association des Médiévistes Anglicistes de l'Enseignement Supérieur (AMAES). It was founded in 1972 under the name Bulletin des Anglicistes Médiévistes (BAM). In 2018, the journal changed its name to better reflect its new identity.

Originally conceived as an internal communication tool for the association, the journal has gradually evolved into an international scientific journal welcoming articles by authors from all horizons.

All back issues of the journal are freely accessible on the Persée portal, and our journal is indexed in the Modern Language Association's international bibliography.

Field of study

The journal is devoted to medieval England in all its facets. It is interdisciplinary and open to the most varied methodological approaches. Publications in the fields of literature, philology, linguistics, history and the history of art naturally find their place here. The study of texts in Old English and Middle English is obviously at the heart of the journal's concerns, but its scope of investigation extends far beyond this: Anglo-Latin and Anglo-Norman texts, representations of medieval England in other corpora, modern and contemporary medievalisms, and the political or cultural links of medieval England with the rest of the British Isles or with the continent.

Content and periodicity

The languages of the journal are French and English. The journal is published twice a year. Since 2018, each issue has contained several research articles devoted to the same theme. Some issues also include one or more reviews of academic works.

Mutual commitment

The author of the article undertakes to provide original content, free from any plagiarism (including texts previously published by the said author). All sources used must be correctly identified and any significant contribution made by a third party must be explicitly acknowledged (possibly by naming the person concerned as co-author of the article). If an image is included in the article, the author must ensure that he/she holds the publication rights for the image in question for this article.

The author authorises the journal to publish his or her article in paper form in the planned issue and in digital form as part of the partnership between the journal and the Persée portal (2-year sliding scale).


The author undertakes not to republish his or her article (in whole or in part) in another publication without the prior permission of the journal Études Médiévales Anglaises.

The experts solicited undertake to formulate their opinions in a courteous and constructive manner.

The editorial board of the journal undertakes to subject all articles received within the specified time to an anonymous and impartial evaluation process and to transmit to the author the result of this evaluation, whether positive or negative.

The editorial committee undertakes to ensure that accepted articles are published in paper format in the planned issue and that they are sent to Persée for digital publication once the 2-year sliding scale has expired.

The journal Études Médiévales Anglaises authorises the author to make the published version of his/her article available free of charge on an online digital archive (e.g. HAL) within one year of the article's publication in paper form. The version made available must clearly indicate the references of the issue of the journal in which the article appeared.





Submission and evaluation process

Each issue is the subject of a call for papers published on the association's website and by a number of partners.

Each article undergoes a double-blind review within 3 months. Final acceptance of the article will depend on the corrections and amendments requested by the editorial committee.

No submission or publication fees will be charged to authors. Proposals for book reviews may be submitted directly to the journal's editorial manager.
