Article Submissions

All the articles submitted to Strata must be original work that has not yet been published.  They must also be the work of graduate students and should enrich historical research.Articles can deal with all historical periods, geographical zones, and historical themes, so long as the methodological and conceptual approaches are clearly articulated in the article.  By publishing articles promoting a wide variety of approaches and themes, we hope to shed light upon the dynamism of our field.

The contributions will undergo blind reviews by a scientific committee composed of PhD students and professors who will make their recommendations for publication based on the originality of the study, the value of the publication, and the quality of the writing.  The articles will then be revised by Strata’s editorial committee.  We ask authors to send their contributions by email to accompanied by an abstract (maximum of 125 words) and a short biography (maximum of 75 words).  Confirmation that contributions have been received will be sent via email within a week.
