The Annales d’Éthiopie is one of the main international and interdisciplinary journals about Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa. It started in 1955. Since 2007, it is jointly published by the CFEE and the Éditions de Boccard (Paris). Volumes are archived online on the freely accessible website one year after their publication. The journal accepts and published articles in English and in French.

The journal

Founded in 1955 by the Archaeology Section of the Ethiopian Imperial Government, the Annales d’Éthiopie was first published as the Ethio-French Ethiopian Archaeology and Classical Studies journal, until 1990. Since 2000, when the CFEE was created and the journal’s publication started again, the Annales d’Éthiopie is dealing with all fields of Social Sciences and Humanities in all countries of the Horn of Africa, while still welcoming research in Palaeontology and Environmental Sciences.
