Created in 2016, JIMIS is a new international peer-reviewed journal in English or French: « Journal of Interdisciplinary Methodologies and Issues in Science ». It is original because it covers cross-disciplinary topics and issues.
Firstly, the editors of a volume propose a topic common to several disciplines. It may be a methodological issue or a thematic area. Authors are then invited to submit articles in English or French, that offer a particular methodological or epistemological point of view on the issue, related to their skills and discipline. How did the authors solve the problem? What methods were used? What is the philosophical position of their proposition? JIMIS much appreciates articles which break away from author's own scientific approaches and put the results obtained in a critical scientific perspective. From confrontation of ideas emerges knowledge.
Each issue is composed of at least 5 articles. At least 2 of them are proposed by authors from Humanities and Social Sciences. At least 2 of them are submitted by authors from Exact and Experimental Sciences. Papers co-signed by authors from different disciplines are welcome.
Reviewing process is managed by invited editors who are in charge of the publication and to make up the editorial committee according to the issue. Each paper is reviewed by several reviewers in a single blind process (anonymous reviewers).
JIMIS is supported by UMR ESPACE 7300 (CNRS, Université d'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse), CCSD and (S)FR Agorantic. Please feel free to contact Didier Josselin for any information.
