Études Mongoles was founded in 1970 by Roberte Hamayon to explore issues in Mongolian Studies. Up to 2000, it was produced in tandem with the Laboratoire d’ethnologie et de sociologie comparative de Paris-X, today it operates with the École Pratique des Hautes Études. It expanded its fields of research to Siberia in 1976, then to Central Asia and Tibet in 2004 when it became Études mongoles & sibériennes, centrasiatiques & tibétaines (EMSCAT). EMSCAT is produced in French and English and publishes original work by French and foreign researchers – articles, field work, critical observations and accounts, thesis synopses, as well as thematic issues entrusted to guest editors. The journal appears once a year. Articles received are submitted to two exterior readers and reread by at least two members of the editorial committee.
