Terminal publishes papers written in both French and exceptionally in English. Proposals might be submitted in other languages but accepted papers should then be translated into French.

Title page

Besides, for the corresponding author a phone and fax number as well as an email and postal address should be provided (identified with an* after the corresponding author’s name). This page should also include an abstract in both French and English (maximum 1,200 characters), as well as 4 to 6 keywords in both French and English.

The second page should only mention the title of the paper, its abstract and keywords, so that the authors cannot be identified.

Tables and Figures

Tables, including their title and legend, should not be included in the text’s body but grouped at the end of the paper. Figures should be provided separately in JPEG or TIFF format (300 dpi). Accessibility standards should be respected so that the on-line article is accessible to visually impaired readers. Figures and tables should be numbered in Arabic numerals and mentioned in the text’s body with their number (Fig. 1, Tab. 1). The size of figures should not exceed 12 x 18 cm. A figure or table that has already been published elsewhere cannot be accepted without its author’s consent.


In the text’s body references should appear in parentheses (Author, year).
