Comptes Rendus Physique 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 Physique covers the whole field of physics and astrophysics. They mainly publish thematic issues, whose authors are chosen among the most active researchers in the field. The coordination of each thematic issue is ensured by one or more guest editors, guaranteeing the consideration of the most recent and significant results.
They also publish original research articles, 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 Physique 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: Daniel Estève, Stéphan Fauve.
