About

PERSPECTIVES is CIRANO’s journal for the dissemination and valorization of research. Written in a format that is accessible to a wider audience, the articles in PERSPECTIVES provide visibility to the work and expertise of CIRANO's research community.

Through this dissemination tool, CIRANO seeks to reach the scientific community, the academic community and CIRANO's partners, including government policy makers, as well as, more broadly, the entire Quebec society.

As with all CIRANO publications, the articles are based on a rigorously documented analysis by CIRANO researchers and Fellows.

Each article has a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) which guarantees the distribution, referencing and preservation of digital files according to international standards.

Editorial Policy

CIRANO ensures the scientific quality of its publications by a systematic review of articles by a reading committee made up of recognized specialists from the academic world.

All manuscripts submitted for publication in PERSPECTIVES are evaluated by external reviewers chosen by CIRANO's Scientific Committee for their field of expertise.

The articles published in PERSPECTIVES are the sole responsibility of their authors.

Articles must meet the academic requirements of the discipline, yet be understandable to a non-specialist readership.

Once published, a CIRANO Project Report or a CIRANO Working Paper could be published in PERSPECTIVES.

Articles are targeted at 3,000 words in length and must include a maximum of four figures or graphics.

A French version of articles published in English is always made available. Articles are accompanied by an abstract in French and English (about 200 words) and a maximum of five keywords.

The Chief editor provides support to authors throughout the writing process.

Linguistic revision, formatting and translation into French of articles published in English are provided by CIRANO’s team.

As with all CIRANO publications, CIRANO’s team assumes responsibility for the dissemination and valorization activities of the articles published in PERSPECTIVES.
