Comptes Rendus Mécanique is a diamond open access 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 Mécanique covers all the fields of the discipline: dynamic systems, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, acoustics/waves/vibrations, automation/signal processing, etc. They mainly publish original research articles, but also thematic issues, review articles, historical perspectives or texts reflecting the activity of the French Academy of sciences in the field of Mechanics. Articles are written in English or French.
Comptes Rendus Mécanique is published since 2020 with the Centre Mersenne pour l'édition scientifique ouverte (Centre Mersenne for open scientifique 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).
Editors-in-chief: Jean-Baptiste Leblond and Nicolas Moës.
