## English version
Academic publishing currently raises several issues, such as the production of multiple artifacts from a single source. The expression _single source publishing_ refers to generating several formats from a single source: a single document can be used to produce various formats, without having to switch from one working progress to another, whether it is a PDF format for printing, an XML export for a digital platform or a digital version in HTML format. This editorial challenge brings up both theoretical and technical questions, such as the legitimization of content, the evolution of publishing practices, and the creation of adequate tools. At the intersection of media studies, publishing studies and literature, the concepts of hybridity (McLuhan, 1968), hybridization (Ludovico, 2012) or editorialization (Vitali-Rosati, 2016) allow us to question the principles of this editorial design.
Single source publishing is a major challenge for publishers and distributors of scientific publications, as it allows them to produce as many formats as necessary while maintaining the same origin. The benefits are many: creation of a common space for all those involved in the publishing chain; clarification of actions on content; merging of needs between the various output formats; mutualization of efforts for the various exports to be produced (PDF, HTML/web, XML, EPUB, etc.); simplification of archiving by having a single source. Setting up publishing chains with _single source publishing_ is complex, several initiatives have been trying to meet this challenge since the early days of computing. In the Revue2.0 project lead by the Canada Research Chair in Digital of Textualities, several journals have experimented with this alternative via the semantic text editor Stylo (https://stylo.huma-num.fr). This short presentation is an opportunity to discuss the results of several experiments and to reveal the theoretical issues as the practical issues.
