As of January 1, 2020, Comptes Rendus - Biologies no longer accepts unsolicited submissions.
This website is therefore closed to new submissions.
Only articles requested by the Editorial Board will be published.
Manuscripts must be sent on OJS simultaneously in two formats with line numbering: Word or LaTeX and PDF format.
If you submit a Word format, please number the lines of your file before exporting it into PDF (PDF shall also have lines numbered).
To number the lines, go to the Layout tab of your document (in the Page Setup group) and click on Line Numbers / Continuous.
To know more about the operation, pleas visit the support office page.
If you forgot files during your initial submission :
Authors are invited to prepare their article with PDFLaTeX (for submission or after acceptance), the bibliographic references stored in a bibtex file, illustrations preferably as PDF, with a sufficient quality for unambiguous Web display or print. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the journal's LaTeX class file and bibtex style, but amsart or smfart classes, as well as amsplain and smfplain styles are accepted. Please refer to the instruction page for papers prepared with LaTeX (under construction).
Articles can be submitted either in French or in English, but preferably in English.
References must be numbered and listed sequentially as they appear in the text. The list must include all references quoted in the text and in the figure and table captions.
Journal titles must be abbreviated according to international rules. Do not use italics and bold for journal titles and volume numbers.
Examples (all authors must be indicated):
These must all be labelled as figures and numbered using Arabic numerals. If possible, please submit them in their final size (75 mm width). If they are wider than 1 column (to be avoided if possible), their width must be no more than 160 mm. Tables must also be numbered in Arabic numerals. All figures and tables must be quoted in the text. Figures must be free of copyright. If re-using a figure already published, the authorization of the publisher of the original article is necessary, as well for paper as for electronic publishing.
These must be clearly set out: exponents and indices should be carefully placed (write x1 instead of x1); avoid ambiguous expressions such as 1/2x: write either 1/(2 x), or (1/2) x ; the same quantity should be always indicated by the same symbol, in the same font. Please respect the usual typographic rules: for instance, mathematical or physical quantities, such as the x axis or a mass m, must be written in italics. So x + 1 de x + l will be distinguished, as well as the logarithm ln and the product of l by n.
To be supplied in an editable form (source file).
Microsoft Word higher than 5.0, TeX or LaTeX. Articles should not be saved under the Word 2007 format. You are recommended to use the Cedram article class (crgeosicence.cls) to prepare your manuscript and BibTeX to generate your bibliography.
