The Parallèles team follows a comprehensive submission and reviewing protocol with a view to guarantee the quality of the contributions published in the journal.

Submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by at least two external expert referees. All peer review is double blind and submission is online via EasyChair.

Issue 30(1) will be a special issue on legal translation. If you want your manuscript to be considered for publication in issue 30(2), please send it to us before the deadline.

Deadline: 31st January 2018.

Expected publication date: October 2018.


Parallèles publishes one special issue per year, in the spring. Proposals for special issues are examined once a year. They should be submitted by the cut-off date of October 1st, two and a half years prior to the expected publication date. The Editorial Board will communicate its decision by November 1st. Proposals should be submitted via our online form, in either English or French.

Special issues must follow the general editorial policy of the journal (see Checklist for authors) and comprise three sections: (1) an introduction / state of the art by the guest editors, (2) articles, (3) book reviews. All contributions in the Articles section must be peer reviewed. Works discussed in the Book Reviews Section should be related to the subject of the special issue.

The first available slot for a special issue is in Volume 33(1), 2021. Deadline for proposals is 1st October 2018.

Volume 30(1): Valérie Dullion & Fernando Prieto Ramos: La traduction juridique, entre création et usage des terminologies multilingues.
