About the Journal

What is the American Journal of French Studies?


Founded in 2019, the American Journal of French Studies’ primary aim is to promote the French language in North America and help institutions and businesses to thrive in a fast-pace environment.

Our Digital Marketing and Communication team provides the highest level of expertise to universities, embassies and corporations to help them redefine their marketing and communication strategy. French and English speaking audiences require curated content and targeted ads that we build from scratch with insights from our clients. We always deliver and respect deadlines to make sure that your potential clients pay attention and visit your website. We emulate your customers and improve your conversion rates under a month. Refining your digital strategy, creating your newsletters, and engaging prospects on social media to make your business more visible and your products successful is what we do best.

Each year, our publishing arm  invite middle school, high school and undergraduate students to submit essays in French on two to three different topics.

The topics are announced by the AJFS’s editorial team at the beginning of each academic year, through the release of a Call For Short Papers (CFSP).

If you qualify, you are encouraged to submit your essay here or email us – editor@american-journal-of-french-studies.com. All formats – poetry, short stories, academic papers, assignments, movie scripts, etc. – are welcome.

We are also currently looking for new partnerships with professors teaching in institutions of secondary and higher education who are willing to give their students the opportunity to be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

The American Journal of French Studies is published in print and online. Print editions can be either purchased online (online shop) or obtained for free through a membership.

We reserve the right to decline publication of any article we find to be incompatible with our mission.
