This research analyzes the hypertextual discourse of four French scientific popularization magazine websites: Futura-Sciences, Pour la Science, Science & Vie, Sciences et avenir. Our approach, based on digital discourse analysis, focuses more in general on dissemination of scientific knowledge to lay people. At a macro-linguistic level, we will identify from the homepage the popularizing and/or commercial intention of these magazines, as well as the type of digitalization of each magazine, which generally publishes also a more ancient version which is not freely available to the public. At a micro-linguistic level, our analysis deals with the techno-discursive structure of one document per website, namely as far as hyperlinks are concerned. As a consequence, we will place our documents on a scalar level of digitalization and innovation, reached by productions which originally come from the web.

Abstract

This research analyzes the hypertextual discourse of four French scientific popularization magazine websites: Futura-Sciences, Pour la Science, Science & Vie, Sciences et avenir. Our approach, based on digital discourse analysis, focuses more in general on dissemination of scientific knowledge to lay people. At a macro-linguistic level, we will identify from the homepage the popularizing and/or commercial intention of these magazines, as well as the type of digitalization of each magazine, which generally publishes also a more ancient version which is not freely available to the public. At a micro-linguistic level, our analysis deals with the techno-discursive structure of one document per website, namely as far as hyperlinks are concerned. As a consequence, we will place our documents on a scalar level of digitalization and innovation, reached by productions which originally come from the web.
Cette contribution analyse le discours hypertextualisé des sites de quatre revues de vulgarisation scientifiques françaises (Futura-Sciences, Pour la Science, Science & Vie, Sciences et avenir). Notre approche, fondée sur l’analyse du discours numérique, s’insère de manière plus générale dans la diffusion de connaissances scientifiques à un public non expert. Au niveau macro-langagier, à partir de la page d’accueil, nous identifions l’importance que chaque revue donne, plus ou moins explicitement, à la transmission des savoirs scientifiques vis-à-vis de sa logique commerciale. Cette démarche nous permet entre autres de vérifier le niveau de numérisation des revues de chaque site, dont existe presque toujours une revue imprimée plus ancienne et payante. Au niveau micro-langagier, nous analysons la structure technodiscursive d’un document-modèle par site ainsi que les liens hypertexte qui y figurent. Au bout de notre examen, nous situerons les documents et les sites des quatre magazines de vulgarisation scientifique sur une échelle de numérisation et d’innovation croissantes, atteintes par les productions nativement issues du web.
