The Institut de Recherches Économiques et Sociales (IRES) (Institute for Economic and Social Research) was created by French representative trade union organizations in 1982, with support from the government, in order to document and inform all of the fields in which they are involved, to analyze the changes they are experiencing, and to understand the relevant issues. These objectives were also at the basis of the creation of La Revue de l’IRES in 1989.

This journal publishes research on collective labor relations, working conditions and performance, the relationships between macroeconomics and work performance, working conditions, wage levels, and social protection, especially given the involvement of professional organizations in the creation and collective management of social guarantees. Work published in these various fields may focus as much on public policy as it does on actors’ strategies and positions.

The journal is therefore looking for topics that are, for the most part, on the cutting edge of several different fields. Particular attention is paid to how these topics are handled, with the journal publishing work that draws on various disciplines, as is the case for the fields of industrial relations and administrative sciences. Particular attention is also paid to work that uses international comparative perspectives, as well as work that relies on field surveys.

La Revue de l’IRES is primarily intended for researchers, trade union organizations, professionals, and administrators who may have different reasons for being interested in the fields it has chosen to cover.

Author Instructions

The article evaluation procedure is centered on a reading committee, which is made up of researchers and managers from the Institute, as well as representatives from the trade union organizations that are IRES stakeholders. It may also include outside researchers who are invited to join. All articles eligible for publication are submitted to the reading committee. Articles submitted to La Revue de l’IRES are then evaluated in an open and collaborative manner at a meeting of the reading committee to which the authors are also invited.

This editorial process, organized collectively by the Institute researchers with contributions from representatives from IRES stakeholder trade union organizations, aims to provide authors with constructive comments, with the goal of revising and improving articles that may benefit from the discussion. Together with the authors’ right to respond, this collaborative article evaluation process guarantees the objectivity of these evaluations.

After the reading committee meeting, a written summary of any notes and suggestions from the meeting is sent to the authors, so that they can revise their articles in preparation for publication.
