The first academic journal on intelligence and cyber in France

A unique platform offering French-speaking academics and practitioners a demanding publication in their language and in English. Bringing together multiple disciplines in the field, EFRC is the medium for the dissemination of French intelligence and cyber studies. EFRC's vocation is to create and animate a strategic ecosystem to think and renew the analytical grids of a field that is by definition secret and closed. It offers the best academic standards and is therefore based on independent scientific committee.

FIELDS OF THE JOURNAL AND CALLS FOR CONTRIBUTION

Intelligence and Cyber French Studies (EFRC) accepts all proposals for original work related to the fields of intelligence and cyber. EFRC publishes two issues per year.

 

Each issue is composed of :

  • Two topics (a major theme with a minimum of 6 articles, a minor theme with a minimum of 3 articles) ;

  • Varia section for which contributors are free to choose the theme. A free contribution can be published in this section or be retained for a dossier in progress;

  • A “Reading notes” section composed of reviews of recently published works in the fields of the journal.

  • A “Scientific news” section which traces recent academic activities in the fields of the journal.

SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL
 

An author can submit either a written article, or a proposal (200 words maximum), or a proposal for a Reading note, in French or English, to contact@etudesfrc.com with "Proposal" in the subject line. The proposal file must be in ODT (OpenOffice and LibreOffice) or DOCX (Microsoft Word) format. The author will take care to mention his diplomas and university affiliation.


If the article is signed by more than one person, the person submitting the proposal must state in the accompanying email that he or she has obtained the agreement of all co-authors of the text to act on their behalf.

REVIEW PROCESS
 

The EFRC Editorial Committee receives proposals and papers. 

 

  1. If the proposal is deemed eligible, the Editorial Committee invites the author to submit the article/the reading note (between 10 and 20 000 characters including spaces).
    2. If the article (40 000 characters including spaces).is within the scope of the journal, has academic merit, is original, has not been published and is not being evaluated by another journal, the President of the Scientific Committee appoints two rapporteurs who will give their opinion without knowing the name of the author of the contribution (double-blind evaluation). They will be chosen to minimize the links between the reviewer and the author. Based on these evaluations, the Editorial Committee, which is open to all members of the Scientific Committee who have been informed in advance and have received all the documents, decides whether to accept the articles or to reject them, or to request a revised version, with or without an additional external evaluation cycle.

The final accepted papers are edited and translated (into English or French). At the same time, EFRC sends the author a contract by e-mail to be returned as soon as possible. Proofs are sent to the authors, whose corrections are integrated to produce the final versions. Upon publication, the author will receive a copy of the journal.
