IdeAs. Idées d'Amériques is an open access journal produced by the Institut des Amériques. Following a multidisciplinary approach in the humanities and social sciences, the journal is dedicated to the study of the whole of the American continent and each year publishes two theme issues of articles based on comparative and transnational approaches. IdeAs also aims to use online publication to create a space for exchange on the subjects discussed, and has an active translation policy. The inaugural issue “Integration in the Americas. Fresh socio-economic perspectives” is now online in full text.
