This round-table, held entirely in French, brings together editors from STEM, the Social Sciences, and Humanities to discuss some of the challenges French-language, bilingual, and national journals face with the use of French in an increasingly English-dominated Academic world. Discussion will focus on themes, such as the use of French in bilingual and national journals that publish overwhelmingly in English, difficulties in attracting French-language content and strategies to increase submissions, being francophone on predominantly anglophone editorial or advisory committees, to name a few.
