Sciences Po's signature charter for publications

The signature of a scientific publication contributes to the recognition and visibility of the authors, but also to those of the research units hosting them and the institutions that house them. In order to increase this visibility, Sciences Po decided in 2016 to develop a signature charter for scientific publications, defining some simple rules. This charter is is intended for the entire community contributing to the scientific production of Sciences Po. In order to increase this visibility, Sciences Po decided in 2016 to develop a charter for the signature of the scientific publications, defining some simple rules.

This charter is addressed to all of the community contributing to the scientific production of Sciences Po. The signature shall indicate the identity of the author and his or her affiliation.

  • The identity corresponds to "First name Last name".
  • The affiliation includes two pieces of information: "Sciences Po" and the "name of the research unit of attachment". When this unit also reports to the "CNRS" (case of the UMR - Joint Research Units and UMS - Joint Service Unit), this third affiliation information is added to the signature, regardless of the status of the author.
  • Finally, the signature ends with the words "Paris", "France".

The two most common cases at Sciences Po are:

1. Persons attached to a research unit specific to Sciences Po (CHSP, Law School, medialab, OFCE) "First name Last name", "Sciences Po", "Name of the research unit (Acronym)", "Paris", "France"

2. Persons attached to a research unit associated with the CNRS (CERI, CEE, CSO, Department of Economics, OSC, CEVIPOF, CDSP) "First name Last name", "Sciences Po", "Name of the research unit (Acronym)", "CNRS", "Paris", France"

Below are signature templates, in English and French, for the eleven units of research of Sciences Po as well as for the transversal programs (Liepp and MaxPo). You are invited to read it and adopt the signature model that Sciences Po makes available to you.
