Comptes Rendus. Mathématique

Created in 1835 by physicist François Arago, then Permanent Secretary, the journal Comptes Rendus de l'Académie des sciences allows researchers to quickly make their work known to the international scientific community.
It is divided into seven titles covering the range of scientific research fields: Mathematics, Mechanics, Chemistry, Biology, Geoscience, Physics and Palevol. Each series is led by an editor-in-chief assisted by an editorial committee. Submitted articles are reviewed by two scientists with recognized competence in the field concerned. They can be notes, announcing significant new results, as well as review articles, allowing for a fine-tuning, or even proceedings of symposia and other thematic issues, under the direction of invited editors, French or foreign.

New consultation mode

Since 1 January 2020, the Comptes Rendus de l'Académie des Sciences have been published by the centre Mersenne pour l’édition scientifique ouverte, for the series Mathématique, Physique, Mécanique, Chimie, Géoscience et Biologies, and by the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle for the Palevol series.
All seven journals are open access "diamond" journals, which means free and open access for all to all articles.

The Académie des Sciences is thus evolving the publishing of its journals for the future in order to bring them into line with the principles of open science. At the same time, it is continuing to work with the Elsevier company to make the archives available according to the same principles.

All articles published between 1 January 2002 and 31 December 2019 in the seven journals will continue to be made available by Elsevier, in free diamond access, on the websites :

All articles published before 1997 are available on Gallica. Please consult the information on the website of the Académie des Sciences.
