About antiAtlas Journal

Digital, bilingual and in free access, the antiAtlas Journal opens an exploratory editorial space dedicated to a radical transdisciplinary approach to contemporary borders. As an extension of the antiAtlas of Borders project relying on a collaboration between researchers and artists, it experiments new methods of editing and of modelization of research. Its content is available online (desktop, tablets and mobiles) and in PDF format.


Conceptualized and designed by Thierry Fournier and created with Papascript, the editorial and graphic layout for the Journal takes advantage of opportunities offered by digital publication for extending the experience of reading research articles. Its design of articles in wide “sheets” allows readers to access from a variety of levels: the text itself, and the network and landscape that the text creates through its iconography.

By opening up multiple proximities and circulations between text and image, it enables transversal trajectories and varying levels of perception that a linear organisation does not permit, though a linear pdf version will also be available. Very large images will extend beyond the screen: exclusive circulation within an image becomes one form of lecture, similarly to the way we move within a text.

Article submission and evaluation

The antiAtlas Journal’s special issues include contributions received in response to the editorial board’s calls for papers. In order to be considered, the draft texts have to be written in either French or English, be 1,000 words in length (including iconographic elements such as photos, videos, graphics, drawings etc.) and be provided in PDF format. The issue’s science editors evaluate these proposals in collaboration with the editorial board. The authors whose proposals are chosen will then submit an article that, in compliance with international standards, is reviewed by two anonymous readers who do not sit on the journal’s editorial board.

The submission process for non-theme articles is now open. These articles will be evaluated in the same way as those for special editions. If they are accepted, they will be included in one of the journal’s issues with the current year as the publication date.
