As of 2020, Comptes Rendus de l’Académie des Sciences, including Comptes Rendus – Mathématique (formerly Comptes Rendus de l’Académie des Sciences – Series I – Mathematics) will be published by The Centre Mersenne for Open Scientific Publishing. New editions of Comptes Rendus – Mathématique can be accessed here: https://comptes-rendus.academie-sciences.fr/mathematique
All seven Comptes Rendus journals will be published as “diamond” open access, meaning all the articles are free to access for all, and that authors will not have to pay article processing charges (APCs) when publishing with these journals.
Articles published in Comptes Rendus journals, including Comptes Rendus Mathématique, from 2002-2019 will continue to be available online through Elsevier. These articles are available here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/comptes-rendus-mathematique/issues
Articles published from 1997-2001 in Comptes Rendus de l’Académie des Sciences – Series I – Mathematics are also available through Elsevier: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/comptes-rendus-de-lacademie-des-sciences-series-i-mathematics/issues
Articles published in Comptes Rendus journals prior to 1997 are available through the Gallica Digital Library of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. These articles are available here: https://www.academie-sciences.fr/en/Transmettre-les-connaissances/comptes-rendus-de-l-academie-des-sciences-numerisees-sur-le-site-de-la-bibliotheque-nationale-de-france.html
All articles from 1997-2019 are linked directly from MathSciNet, Scopus, and Zentralblatt MATH. Indexing is expected to continue for future editions.
Though these publishing changes can be confusing, Comptes Rendus’ move to diamond open access publishing is exciting and important for the future of open science.
