Revue des Études Arméniennes (REA) is a prominent French language academic journal dedicated to the study of Armenian history, art history, philology, linguistics, literature.[1] The journal was founded by two French scholars who specialized in Armenian studies in Paris in 1920, Frédéric Macler and Antoine Meillet.[2] Meillet himself wrote many of the articles, which specifically focused on Armenian grammar, folk tales, and history, during the formative years of the journal (1920-1933). The journal was not published from 1934 to 1963.[2] When REA resumed in 1964, articles submitted in English and German were also admitted for publication.[2] REA uses the Hübschmann-Meillet-Benveniste system in the transcription of Armenian words into Latin characters.

The journal's former directors were Jacques Benveniste (1964-1975), Georges Dumézil (1975-1980) and Sirarpie Der-Nersessian (1981-1989).[2]
