This journal is an e-only journal.
Contributions published by this journal are either research articles or review articles written on the invitation of the Editor-in-Chief or the Associate Editors, or articles forming part of a thematic issue, the responsibility of which has been given to an Invited Editor.
This is now the required procedure as it offers numerous advantages. Corresponding authors will be immediately informed that their article has been received, and processing time to publication will be greatly reduced by the use of this Internet-based workflow.
By publishing in the Comptes Rendus - Mécanique, the author undertakes to respect and comply with the following sections:
Publication Ethics : read our publication ethics
Editorial policy : read our editorial policy
Copyright Policy : read our copyright policy
Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a 'Licence to Publish'.
Rules of good practice : access the best practices of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)
Authors must ensure that their submission complies with all of the following elements. Non-compliant submissions may be returned to the authors.
Articles must be submitted through the Comptes Rendus - Mécanique submission site. Authors must create an account or use an existing account to submit.
In case of difficulty, contact Adenise Lopez (email@example.com) for assistance.
Please watch the 'Submitting an article' video from PKP to assist you in the account creation and submission process.
The journal uses a single blind evaluation system.
All contributions are first evaluated by the editor associated with the selected heading. Manuscripts deemed relevant are then sent to at least one independent expert who assesses their scientific quality and sends his report to the editor. The final decision is made by the writer 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 standard according to the LaTeX model of the Comptes Rendus - Mécanique.
Corresponding authors will receive an e-mail.
Proofs should be checked immediately and carefully (only corrections of typographical errors can be made on the proofs) and returned within 48 hours to the address given on the e-mail accompanied the proofs.
The article is immediately put online in PDF format on the website of the Comptes Rendus - Mécanique, on the Mersenne platform.
At the request of the editorial committee, authors may be invited to provide raw data related to their research. The authors undertake, as far as possible, to provide public access to this data and therefore to keep it for a reasonable period of time after publication.
