Abstract:A dual journal project was launched in 2010 to build bridges between French and English media research spheres through the translation and reciprocal publication of a series of essays from each linguistic sphere. In 2012, a special issue of 'Afrique contemporaine' ('Les Afriques médiatiques') was published, with six essays in French by authors working on media from the English-language zone. This issue of 'Ecquid novi' makes articles originating from French-speaking sub-Saharan Africa available to English-speaking readers in translated form. Research articles included: Cameroon's private daily press: in search of a viable economic model (Thomas Atenga) - The media economy in French-speaking Africa: when fragmentation threatens survival (Emmanuel V. Adjovi) - Denominational radio stations in French-speaking Africa: emergence and development (Etienne L. Damome) - The challenges of journalism ethics in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Vicky Elongo Lukulunga) - Media regulation in sub-Saharan Africa: trends and stakes in French-speaking countries (Renaud de la Brosse and Marie-Soleil Frère).
