The journal uses a simple blind evaluation system.
Any submission is first evaluated by the editor associated with the selected heading. If the manuscripts is considered as relevant, it is sent to at least one independent expert who assesses its scientific quality and sends his report to the editor. The final decision is made by the editor based on the recommendations of the report.
The editorial decision shall be communicated to the author as soon as possible.
In case of acceptance of his article, the author must provide:
The articles are formatted and brought up to technical standard according to the LaTeX layout of Comptes Rendus - Mathématique.
Proofs are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail or through the OJS submission system. They are accompanied by instructions for proofreading. When at proof stage, only typographical corrections are accepted. They must be communicated as soon as possible to the e-mail address mentioned in the accompanying message.
The article is rapidly posted online in PDF format, as well as its TeX sources if the author has accepted it, on the website of the Comptes Rendus - Mathématique, hosted by the centre Mersenne platform.
At the request of the editorial committee, authors may be invited to provide raw data related to their research. The authors commit, to the extent possible, to provide public access to this data and therefore to keep it for a reasonable period of time after publication. Ideally, the data is deposited in an ad hoc repository and a persistant identifier (DOI, e.g.) is provided in the article.
