Abstract. This study analyses the French-language scholars’ place in Canadian foreign pol- icy. More precisely, it measures and compares their productions in French and in English ~out- put! and the citations to this output ~impact! in works by English-language scholars. The output is measured using the Canadian Foreign Relations Index. Then a representative sample of bib- liographies taken from books and articles written by English-language scholars and published between 1997 and 2007 is analyzed. Various conclusions on the place of French and French- language scholars in the field are drawn from these data, including their small contribution to Canadian foreign policy and the absence of citations to works in French by English-language scholars. Political implications of the results are discussed.
