Peer Review Policy

The French Review is the scholarly journal of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF). AATF membership is a prerequisite for the submission of articles and reviews.

Our journal uses a double-blind peer review system. Articles submitted to the French Review are first screened by the Editor in Chief, who determines whether the topic is suitable for our journal and meets our standards regarding length, anonymity, use of secondary sources, etc. Articles considered for publication are then sent to two evaluators who are recognized specialists in the relevant field. This process can take one to two months. In the case of a split decision, the author has two to three months to revise the article before it is sent to a third evaluator (and, if need be, to at least one of the initial evaluators). This second evaluation process can also take one to two months. In all cases, the evaluators’ comments and suggestions are forwarded to the author by the Editor in Chief. Articles are normally published within one year of acceptance.

Submitted articles may be in English or French. We only publish articles that have not appeared elsewhere (either in the original or in translation). We do not accept simultaneous submissions. In addition to scholarly articles, the French Review publishes reviews of books, films, and teaching materials. These informal pieces are commissioned by their respective Review Editors, who review them for grammar, style, factual accuracy, and suitability for publication. They are not sent out for double-blind peer review.
