Sens Public's mandate is the theoretical, philosophical and political analysis of the changes in public spaces in our contemporary society. The aim of the journal is to offer in-depth scientific analyses capable of deciphering the sociological and political phenomena that characterize the globalized world. The digital dimension of contemporary culture, as well as the appearance of new intellectual networks and new forms of knowledge production and dissemination, are systematically questioned in our articles. To carry out this mission, Sens Public has chosen a transdisciplinary perspective, favouring hybrid approaches, while guaranteeing scholarly rigour. The journal fills a major void in academia by offering, to researchers who work at the junction of several disciplines, a space of expression and diffusion that has, until now, been lacking. This transdisciplinary space is also essential to the study of emerging digital culture, which calls for multidisciplinary thinking.
Since its creation, Sens Public has emerged as a pioneer in the digital publishing world and has become a central actor in contemporary change. Today, with more than a decade of experience, it brings to the table unconventional expertise in the field of digital publishing, allowing it to distinguish itself and offer its authors high-quality support to disseminate their work. In fact, thinking about new forms of knowledge production and dissemination is now among the common themes of our publications. Today, it is no longer purely a question of digital publishing, but also of producing scholarly and epistemological reflection relating to this field.
