Rendre publique l'évaluation des SHS : les controverses sur les listes de revues de l'AERES

Abstract : This article examines the trajectory of an assessment tool dedicated to the humanities and social sciences: the list of journals published in July 2008 by the official French Research Assessment institution (AERES). It highlights the filiations of that tool with previous assessment practices, describes the intense criticism that its publication has provoked, and examines the socio-technical arrangements performed to support a compromise around a perimeter o scientificity. Far from the conventional wisdom of managerial pressures restricting the autonomy of researchers, this article analyses journal lists as a powerful reminder of disciplinary conventions, singular epistemic and historical tensions dividing HSS.
