Editorial Policy: we strive to be a high quality journal

The Journal of Interaction between Persons and Systems is a bilingual international journal that publishes high quality articles written in French or English that have been rigorously reviewed. Driven by the French speaking human-machine interaction community via the Francophone Association for Human-Machine Interaction (AFIHM), the journal is run by an editorial board that is committed to three principles:

  • Quality is essential. Regardless of whether an author has chosen to write in French or English, the first criterion for acceptance is quality: the quality of the article’s scientific content, its expression and use of language.  
  • An assessment procedure that is quick and transparent. All contributions are assessed by three anonymous reviewers and one anonymous meta-reviewer within a span of three months. At all times, authors may track the assessment status of their proposal.
  • A journal that is widely read. The primary goal of any scientific journal is to disseminate its research as broadly as possible. To do so, all articles can be freely accessed on-line and authors are not required to pay anything.
