Abstract : With the new broadcasting possibilities that the web has to offer, several French-language contemporary art journals have started their own web sites. These journals are further links in the art world information network. Consequently, they initially need to be identified within this information network, if we are understand how important they are and how they function. A closer lokk shows that connections with the publishing world and printed journal models vary in importance and we must not put everything into the "electronic" category. Several different types of site are found on the web. These are : inserts (e.g. Espace sculpture) wich are reminders and references to the printed version ; accompanying sites (e.g. Revue noire) which are based on the paper version, but offer further possibilities adapted to the Internet ; and finalyyt, Synesthésie, which is a special case. The journal illustrates the profile and content of a totally electronic art magazine, and opens the debate on the nature and purpose of a new medium.
