The Chroniques du manuscrit au Yémen (CmY), born on Yemenite soil, report and record scientific and cultural activity concerning the manuscripts of Yemen as well as those of the Arabian Peninsula. Little by little they are compiling the repertoire of manuscripts, their repositories and of sources about the region.
“Manuscript” is understood as codices and documents, and is approached by any discipline, from the historical to the social sciences.
The Journal welcomes original scientific articles in French and English and provides the latest information about manuscripts. In the News section, “Window on …” is open to the disciplines employing a methodology comparable to that of Codicology and that of text edition, such as Palaeography and Epigraphy.
The CmY is a journal publishing articles which have been double blind peer-reviewed by at least one external reviewer.
The CmY is an electronic journal, published in PDF format and available without identification procedure, in full, and free of charge. Two issues appear each year, in January and July. Bilingual, they are translated into Arabic and, on request, in other languages.
The CmY is addressed to an international audience. Its distribution reaches to twenty countries, associations and groups that redistribute it, and other journals.
