Annotation via


Commenting under in order to fluidify the exchanges between contributors and editors, we use the online annotation tool


● First, we will share a preview of the text with the contributor. At this stage, it is not a text formatted on the forthcoming edition, but the text alone.

This preview includes, if necessary, annotations from the editors commenting on certain errors or queries. These are most often unaccented capital letters, or equivalent. Nothing very serious, but it is important to indicate them before correction, even if they do not all call for comments from the contributors.

Once the link to has been opened on Stylo, to access, the contributor will notice that, on the right-hand side of the web browser, there is a menu that allows you to view and respond to these annotations (comments, correction control, etc.).


● Creation of an account on (Sign up). is an internationally recognized annotation platform that does not depend on any large private company, such as GAFA. All the contributor has to do is fill in a username, a password and a valid email address to create an account. will immediately send a validation email, written in English. You just have to validate this link. Once done, the web page opened by this link can be closed. Please do not open the different links that will appear there.

It is then necessary to follow the link that will be sent to the contributor. This link will allow you to join the annotation group of Les Presses de l'Écureuil for the contributors. Again, do not click on the various links on this page, which are intended for our team. Simply close the web page. The contributor will then be able to go back to his or her contribution on Stylo.


● On the contributor's text page, in the annotation menu (top right), select the "Les Presses de l'Écureuil" group and start working. To annotate, the contributor must select the part of the text to comment on; an annotation icon will appear. It is preferable to select the entire word, if any, and not just a letter or a typographic sign.


● If the contributor wishes to react to one of the editor's comments, simply reply to it in the annotation menu.


● Once the verification is done, the contributor simply notifies the editors by return e-mail so that the final corrections can be integrated and the proof is sent to the contributor.


● In the event of a problem with the connection procedure, a video is available on the website.
