Abstract : The article reviews the conditions for the creation of Métropoles, but also looks at what makes its originality. From the very beginning, the exclusively online review and access to its articles has been free. Métropoles made the metropolitan fact its central object at a time when the issue was not at the center of political or scientific concerns. It was conceived from the outset as a multidisciplinary journal. Ten years after its creation, Métropoles has somehow been caught up by history. "Metropolization" in all its forms is at the heart of many public debates, at both national and local level. The editorial landscape has also expanded, with many publications, of an academic nature or oriented towards a broader audience, tackling the metropolitan fact. In this changing landscape, Métropoles has nevertheless kept its originality. It is one of the few journals where the hypothesis according to which metropolises constitute environments that can secrete specific political operations, practices and mobilizations is taken seriously.
