Abstract: We denote by $ A$ the ring of Laurent polynomials in the indeterminate $ v$ and by $ K$ its field of fractions. In this paper, we are interested in representation theory of the ``generic'' $ q$-Schur algebra $ \mathcal {S}_q(n,r)$ over $ A$. We will associate to every symmetrising trace form $ \tau $ on $ K\mathcal {S}_q(n,r)$ a subalgebra $ \mathcal {J}_{\tau }$ of $ K\mathcal {S}_q(n,r)$ which is isomorphic to the ``asymptotic'' algebra $ \mathcal {J}(n,r)_A$ defined by J. Du. As a consequence, we give a new hypothesis which implies James' conjecture.
