Comptes Rendus Mécanique 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 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 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 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, Nicolas Moës.
