IS 1 (draft)

Please note that this ‘draft’ only compiles together existing translations into an approximation of the format of the original journal. So it gives an idea of the ‘style’ the final version will follow.

The final versions will be fully proof-read and revised against the original French texts – so the translation of every article will at least be ‘renovated’ where needed, and some will be entirely new.
