Summary: Starting from the observation of a segmented state of the art, both disciplinary and in time and space, the objective of this project is to apprehend scholarly periodicals in a global way, from the 17th century to the present day. It is a question of trying to identify the individuals who are at the origin of this original form of knowledge transmission, how these journals function, what is at stake and by what means they circulate. The journals are approached through three axes: their actors, their economy and their contents. This project may seem extremely broad, but its objective is precisely to go beyond the multiplicity of one-off studies to finally study journals as a whole, in different spaces, temporalities and disciplinary logics.
