The peer-reviewed open access journal Le foucaldien publishes interdisciplinary research along the lines of the philosopher and historian Michel Foucault (1926–1984) in English, German, and French. The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy credits Foucault with being "the author most frequently cited in the humanities" at the beginning of the 21st century, but his concepts are challenged in emerging fields such as media studies, digital humanities, post-colonialism, new materialism, and science and technology studies. Hence the main focus of Le foucaldien lies on updating and operationalizing Foucauldian approaches in preferably plain language.
The journal's publisher, the Open Library of Humanities (OLH), is a not-for-profit charity financed by an international consortium of libraries. Due to its non-commercial business model, the OLH does not charge any author fees. Le foucaldien's articles are double-blind peer reviewed, published under a cc-by open access license, indexed in all major databases, and archived long-term in HTML, PDF, and XML.
