Comptes Rendus Chimie is a peer-reviewed electronic journal, whose objective is to allow researchers to quickly make their work known to the international scientific community. It is one of the seven journals published by the Académie des sciences, heir to the Comptes Rendus des Séances hebdomadaires de l'Académie des Sciences founded in 1835 by Arago.
Comptes Rendus Chimie covers all fields of chemistry (organic, inorganic, bioinorganic, organometallic, macromolecular, physical, solid state, etc.). It mainly publishes original research articles, but also review articles, historical perspectives, pedagogical texts or conference proceedings, with no limit in length and in a format as flexible as necessary (figures, associated data, etc.). Articles are published in English or French.
Comptes Rendus Chimie has been published since 2020 with the Centre Mersenne pour l'édition scientifique ouverte (Centre Mersenne for open scientific edition), according to a virtuous policy of Diamond Open Access, free for authors (no publication fees) as well as for readers (immediate and perennial open access).
