Diffusion of research

Publishing at the University Michel de Montaigne – Bordeaux 3 is a centennial tradition that began with the production of university reviews of a remarkable longevity. Over the years, the catalogue of university journals has expanded, enriched by the creation of academic journals covering new fields of investigation. The University of Bordeaux Press also contributes to the influence of Bordeaux research, while the Transverses, an annual scientific event inaugurated in 2010, favors interdisciplinary meetings and the diffusion of works undertaken by the University’s researchers.


The University Michel de Montaigne Bordeaux 3 financially supports a dozen academic journals, among which some titles are more than one hundred years old: the Annales du Midi (1889), the Bulletin hispanique (1899), the Revue des Études Anciennes (1899), the Cahiers d’Outre-Mer (1948), Aquitania (1983), Communication et organisation (1991), Dynamiques environnementales (1992), Lumières (2003), Serbica (2013), Essais (journal of the Doctoral School Montaigne-Humanities, 2013).

University of Bordeaux Press

The University of Bordeaux Press, established in 1983, serves in the valorization of research in the humanities and social sciences, as well as in hard sciences, for a national and international audience of researchers, students and amateurs. The choice of a quality publishing policy is guaranteed by an Editorial Committee and by the editors of the various collections. The catalogue consists of some 800 titles and several prestigious journals, of which a large number are offered on-line (Cairn, Revues.org, Immateriel.fr) and are visible on the site: http://pub.u-bordeaux3.fr


The Transverses are annual days that foster encounters and whose objective is double. Researchers and doctoral students expose their research work to colleagues specializing outside of their domains; the point being to encourage meetings between the actors of the numerous and diverse research activities of our establishment. Certain guest speakers, coming from other universities, present their work and bring an outside perspective. The second objective is to offer other institutions – municipalities, regional governing counsels and the Urban Community (of Bordeaux), for example – a window into the research conducted at the University.
