Subscribe to Annales. Histoire, Sciences Sociales: English Edition

In 2012, with the help of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Florence Gould Foundation, and the American University in Paris, the Annales editorial team began producing an online-only English edition in an effort to increase historiographical exchange and encourage international dialogue. From 2017, this English edition has been available globally both online and in print through a publishing collaboration with Cambridge University Press. Every article from every new issue is published in two distinct editions, with the English version rigorously translated by an established team and edited to the same exacting standards as the French.

All subscribers are invited to upgrade their subscription to receive the English edition as a supplement by purchasing the ‘Annales. Histoire, Sciences Sociales (French and English package).’ Please make sure to inform Cambridge or your subscription agent if you wish to upgrade as this will not be automatically included in your renewal invitation if you have not purchased the English edition before.

Publication schedule for the French and English package

The French edition of the Annales offers 1,200 pages of original research articles and reviews arranged across four issues each year. The English edition is published in parallel but staggered by twelve months, publishing in any given year the translated versions of the articles which appeared in French the year before. This approach ensures high quality translations, carefully reviewed by our editors and authors, without delaying the publication of the original texts.

The table below describes what a subscriber will receive in each subscription year:
